We are excited to announce that we will be continuing our partnership with the Boar's Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, VA. Our team will be traveling to the facility to install our Indirect LED lighting system to all 12 of the indoor tennis courts. This project will be one of the biggest in the history of our organization and we cannot wait for this work to begin and to see the transformation over the indoor courts. Previously, we installed our lights over the gymnasium space and we are looking forward to returning!
The tennis club is part of the Boar's Head Resort that sits on the rolling Virginia countryside with a history dating nearly 300 years, including ties to Thomas Jefferson. The 3,000-acre tract that our resort resides on was part of Virginia's first land grant in 1734, and Terrell's Ordinary, an inn for westward travelers, opened at the exact location of Boar's Head in 1759. Through many twists and interesting turns The Boar’s Head Resort was acquired by the University of Virginia Foundation as a gift and purchase on October 31, 1989. The Foundation had previously acquired the Birdwood property in 1967.
Today, the 600-acre resort boasts 168 guest rooms and suites, 22,000 square feet of meeting, wedding and event space, a spa, four restaurants, and extensive sports and fitness facilities.
