TEMPE, Az. The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (“ITA”) is pleased to welcome JMC Lighting LLC (“JMCL”) as the Official Outdoor Lighting Partner of the ITA. 

Launched in 2019 by tennis players for tennis players, JMCL offers top-of-the-line LED outdoor lighting solutions for clubs, universities, or professional level host sites that are looking to extend the use of their facilities well beyond sundown. 

“The ITA is committed to sharing high quality partnership ideas with our coaches,” said CEO Dr. Timothy Russell. “JMC Lighting and its talented and passionate founder, Josh Conlin, offer an amazing outdoor lighting solution that complements the other court surface and indoor lighting solutions available to our coaches through the ITA’s affiliate portfolio.” 

Having installed LED outdoor lighting solutions for nearly 150 different facilities since the company was founded, JMCL recently completed one of its biggest projects to date, installing new outdoor high-performance LED lighting at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center where the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Men’s and Women’s Tennis teams play. 

Working alongside the Claremont Mckenna College facilities team, JMCL installed 96 LED lights on the 12 outdoor match courts at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center as part of this project. Biszantz will continue to serve as a national showcase for the high-quality service JMC Lighting will offer to all clients for years to come. 

“We were thrilled to work with Josh Conlin and JMC Lighting to convert to LED lights at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center, stated CMS Athletic Director, Erica Perkins Jasper. “There is something incredible about a high energy college tennis match on campus under the lights—and we now have the ability to deliver that experience throughout the season and at the NCAA Championships when they return to Claremont in 2025.”

Currently serving all US markets, JMCL is excited to offer the same high-quality outdoor lighting solutions as it did at the Biszantz Family Tennis Center to other college institutions and facilities around the country.

Together with the ITA, JMCL will continue to showcase its outstanding outdoor lighting solutions to all member institutions, while affirming its place as the premier outdoor LED lighting  solution for all tennis facilities in the USA.

“I started playing tennis at six years old and have continued to enjoy and play competitively ever since,” stated JMCL Founder Joshua Conlin. “I fell in love with college tennis while at USC in the 80s, and my passion for the sport only grew into my adulthood as all three of my sons are avid tennis players. I owe the inspiration for JMC Lighting to the sport of college tennis and the coaches and players we serve each and every day. I am thrilled to be launching this new alliance with the ITA and look forward to seeing a number of college facilities better lit for night play!”
