The Importance of Quality Lighting on Tennis Courts

Tennis court lighting plays a vital role in the functionality of a court, making the selection and installation of lighting an important factor. Ideally, the lighting used on tennis courts will be energy efficient, environmentally friendly, and most importantly, it will shine bright enough for players to play the game they love after sundown. However, the lighting should also be easy on the community by projecting light only on to the court area.

Classic Turf Company features LSI-Industries Sport Lighting systems, which are high-performance, and the most energy efficient lighting for tennis courts in the industry. With LSI lighting, you get the proper amount of light needed to play the game, while also using less energy. LSI lights have a unique feature, the Forward Throw Reflector, which reduces glare and sky glow, and most importantly, projects its light onto the tennis court(s) only.

For indoor tennis courts, the lighting must be comfortable, without hot spots or glare, and of course, energy efficient. Players need the to see clearly, and spectators need to be comfortable, which means being watching matches without sitting under hot lights. Indirect Pendant Mount and Hi-Def Linear Fluorescent, are two models of lighting that are suggested for indoor courts, and both offer major energy saving features.

Ultimately, lighting for tennis courts is not a one-size-fits all solution.  It is essential to take into account the location of your court, what type of visitors you consistently have, and how can you light your court without spending a small fortune on the energy bill.   The best way to make your players happy, and to save money in the long run is to work with an expert.  If you would like to learn more about tennis court lighting, or if you would like to discuss your specific situation, then contact Classic Turf Company today.
