Green Initiatives

Some Important Green Initiatives are underway at Jensen’s Tennis

At Jensen’s we’re constantly working to improve our systems and ways to deliver better services to the community. Perhaps you might have known that already but, what you may not know is that we are also spending time trying to reduce the tennis facilities impact on the environment by taking a few simple steps towards carbon emission reduction.

Set out below are some of the initiatives already in place at Jensen’s

Carbon Neutral

With every New & Renewed Tennis Membership a tree is planted helping to “turn emissions into trees” through our participation in Carbon Neutral’s planting projects. Planting trees is an effective way to absorb or ‘sequester’ carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon Neutral plants hundreds of thousands of native trees each year in environmentally vulnerable areas throughout Australia.

ISCS

ISCS security systems have developed a gate system which controls the tennis court lights. This means that players who have evening bookings can activate the lights simply by entering their unique PIN, lights no longer needlessly need to be switched ON when a court is not in use.

EXETEL

ISP services for security systems are provided by EXETEL who donate a percentage of our monthly payment to fund nominated projects that protect and enhance the survival of Australian flora and fauna.
