What are the Best Types of LED Lighting for Tennis Courts?
For indoor tennis lighting, LED lights for tennis courts are mounted on the ceiling. The light points down, similar to a gym light. Or points upwards, reflecting against a white reflective surface.
For outdoor tennis courts, lights are pole-mounted on the perimeter of the court. They resemble shoebox lights or parking lot lights. These lights use special optics to “throw” the light toward the center of the court.
What are the Best LED Fixtures for Indoor Tennis Courts?
There are two options. And it all depends on whether you want light pointing downwards or upwards.
The best tennis LED sports lighting pointing downwards is high bay lights. We recommend UFO lights with a frosted lens. It will reduce the amount of glare produced. These lights are powerful, bright, and robust. So hitting them with a tennis ball will not cause any damage.
If your tennis club uses up-lighting, a cost-effective solution is to retrofit with a retrofit kit. This allows you to keep your lights and convert them to LED. Or, we do have fixtures that can be pointed up and reflected down on the court, like our high-power flood lights.
What are the Best LED Fixtures for Outdoor Tennis Courts?
There are two options, and both are pole-mounted solutions.
If the poles are mounted near the perimeter of the court, then a shoebox-style light is a good option. You must choose the right type of optic package for these lights. Some are particularly good at lighting up courts and not the area behind the courts. They’re considered ‘forward-throw’ optics. And most shoebox lights meant for parking lots are not meant for tennis courts.
If the poles are mounted further back, flood lights are a great option to light up the outdoor court area. The floodlight power and beam angle you need rely completely on your requirements. And physical locations of the poles.
LED Light Recommended for a Tennis Facility
More so than recommending a specific light, start with a lighting plan. Try to decide how much light you need, and determine the pole configurations and height. A tennis court lighting company such as LED Lighting Supply will be able to provide a lighting plan and recommendation.
The Ideal LED Tennis Lighting for an Outdoor Tennis Surface
Always start with a lighting plan. A lighting plan will give you a report on how many foot candles you’d need across the court. It will check the balance of light from baseline to baseline. It calculates the number of lights you’d need, as well as the pole/ceiling mounting locations.
How to Improve Your Indoor Tennis Courts with LED Lighting
The quality of light far exceeds metal halide and fluorescent lights. Without all the hassle these lights have. The light quality and light levels will last a long time. And with proper planning, you can achieve balanced lighting across the playing surface.
How Do LED Lighting Supply’s LED Tennis Court Lights Compare to Musco Lighting?
Musco offers a very high-feature and performance system that you typically see in professional stadiums that can include specialized RGB lighting and sophisticated controls for the fixtures. The cost level is reflective of this advanced functionality.
In comparison, LED Lighting Supply primarily focuses on school, club, and recreational tennis courts. We offer both cost-competitive and performance options for tennis courts that meet the needs of most schools and recreational applications.
Best Lighting Distribution for Outdoor Tennis Court Lighting
In the world of LED, we can take advantage of well-designed optic packages. And the ones we see work best are ‘forward throw’ optics. These optic packages throw their light forwards onto the court, and not under the post. The goal is to get the center of the court lit as the edges of the court.
It’s easier to light up an indoor court. Like a gymnasium, lights can hang from the ceiling. It is easy to hit light targets from above and have the light well balanced.
Cost of LED Tennis Court Lights
Tennis lights are not expensive. And many of the lights we’ve used to light up tennis courts are affordable. We have many affordable LED UFO Light options for indoor courts and sports lighting shoebox lights for outdoor courts.
Best Color Temperature for LED Tennis Court Lighting
Our customers ask first for 5000K. 4000K is also available. Those are both great options.
How Many LED Lumens to Light a Tennis Court?
When lighting up a tennis court, we recommend that you determine the light levels you want (foot candles). Create a lighting plan to achieve those light levels. A lighting plan will give you a visual report of foot candle readings across the court. Along with the fixtures used to achieve the results and lumens per fixture.
What Beam Angle is Ideal for Tennis Court Lights?
Wide beam angles are best. Tight beam angles are good for stadium lights. But we’d only recommend that if you are lighting up the US Open stadium.
Replacing 1000 Watt Tennis Court Lighting with LED
If you are talking strictly metal halide lights, 1000 watts, and 400 watts are the most common light options. If you are talking about LED lights, the wattage needed to replace both of those lights is much less.
How to Design Indirect Indoor Tennis Court Lighting
Indirect lighting requires the use of reflective surfaces. The light points upwards and reflects off the ceiling and back down. The advantage of this type of lighting is that it is a great solution if you are trying to reduce glare.
The disadvantage is the fact that it takes a lot more light to get to a certain foot-candle level.
How Far Should You Place Light Poles Outside a Tennis Court for Lighting?
Close enough so the light can reach the center of the court and far enough away so as not to interfere with play.
Common Tennis Court Fixture Mounting Methods
For outdoor tennis court lights, they’re pole-mounted fixtures. The most common mounts are slip fitter and straight arm pole mounts.
For indoor courts, there are several ceiling mounting options available. These include an eye hook, pendant mount, and wire/chain suspended mount.
