Lighting a tennis court is a great way of ensuring that you have enough lighting to play at night and during the winter hours when playing time is restricted. Lighting for tennis courts also means that for hot countries you can play in the cool evening breeze as apposed to the beating sun.

Lighting standards ( Outdoor)

Some National Associations and governments have set different requirements for indoor or outdoor lighting and may use different units of measurement. However, as a guide, the following shows the minimum standards according to the European Standard for Sports Lighting, EN 12193:2008 where:

– Class I: Top-level national and international competitions (non-televised) with requirements for spectators with potentially long viewing distances.

– Class II: Mid-level competition, such as regional or local club tournaments. This generally involves medium-sized numbers of spectators with average viewing distances. High-level training may also be included in this class.

– Class III: Low-level competition, such as local or small club tournaments. This does not usually involve spectators. General training, school sports and recreational activities also fall into this class.
