LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting

General Information: LED Squash Court and Racquetball Court Lighting

Best Type of LED Lighting to Use in a Squash Court

There are several types of lights that you can use in a squash court. It all depends on what your existing courts have. You can use recessed panel lights that are installed inside the ceiling. Linear high bays mounted near the ceiling, canopies, UFO High Bays, High Bay LED Lights, and others.

Squash Court Lighting Specifications

The standards we follow are 30-foot candles for non-competition courts. 50-foot candles for competition level. And 120-foot candles for televised competitions.

Is it Better to Use Direct or Indirect Lighting on a Squash Court?

This question is more about glare reduction. Indirect lighting will always be the best choice if glare is an issue. However, there are options available for direct lighting that will reduce glare. Fixtures with frosted lenses are better than clear ones and show the LEDs. Also, for indirect lighting, you need more powerful lights.

LED Lights are Better than Fluorescent Lighting for Squash Courts

If you are currently using fluorescent lights, LEDs will be a significant upgrade: no flickering, humming, and better light quality.

LED Lights Material Lens

It depends on the fixture, but most of the fixtures are either acrylic lenses or tempered glass lenses.

Does it Make a Difference if the Court Walls are Painted White or Glass Walls?

Maybe. The best way to determine this is to create a lighting plan based on your specific needs. We have to assume the glass wall will not reflect the light as well as a highly reflective painted wall. That might change the light we use and the lumens required.

Reduce Glare from LED Lighting used in Squash and Racquetball Court Lighting

Using frosted lens covers helps a great deal to reduce glare. Indirect lighting also works well.

Dimmable LED Fixtures for Court Lighting

First, figure out how many foot candles are in the bright courts. Can you dim the lights? Many of our LED fixtures are dimmable. We offer color-changing and dimmable 2X2 and 2X4 panels and canopies so you can soften the color temperature. If you’re looking to replace the lights, let’s do a lighting plan. Let us know your target foot candles.

How to Ensure Lights Won’t Fall if Hit by a Ball

We can supply safety cables as a secondary means of hanging the fixture. So if the light gets knocked off the primary mount, the safety cables will ensure the fixtures don’t fall.
