What need to consider when calculating lux for outdoor tennis court?

When calculating lux for outdoor tennis courts, in addition to the illumination standard, the following factors need to be considered to ensure that the lighting effect meets the needs of the game and use:

Luminaire type and power:
Choose the right lamp type (such as LED lights) and power. LED lights have become a common choice for tennis court lighting because of their high efficiency, energy saving, long life and other characteristics.
According to the size of the tennis court and lighting needs, choose the appropriate lamp power to ensure that sufficient illumination is provided.

Luminaire layout and height:
The arrangement and height of the lamps are crucial to the lighting effect of the tennis court.
A standard tennis court usually requires four sets of lights, placed in the four corners of the court, and each set of lights contains multiple lamps.
The installation height and Angle of the lamp need to be adjusted according to the specific size and shape of the tennis court to ensure that the light can be evenly illuminated to the entire court.

Illuminance uniformity:
Tennis court lighting should ensure good illuminance uniformity and avoid obvious brightness differences.
The ratio between minimum and maximum vertical illuminance should not be less than 0.4, and the ratio between average vertical illuminance and average horizontal illuminance of the site should not be less than 0.25.

Glare control:
The presence of glare may have an adverse effect on the athletes’ competition and the spectators’ experience.
In the selection of lamps and arrangements, the control of glare should be considered, and glare can be reduced by installing a hood or using anti-glare lamps.

Energy saving and Environmental Protection:
Choose energy-efficient lamps, such as LED lights, to reduce energy consumption.
Reasonable installation of the hood to avoid light spilling out and reduce light pollution.
You can consider using intelligent lighting systems to adjust the brightness and lighting time according to actual needs to further reduce energy consumption.

Color temperature and color Reducibility:
The color temperature of the tennis court lighting should be maintained between 4000K and 5000K, which can better restore the true color of the court and provide good visual effects.
At the same time, in order to increase the enjoyment, colored lights can be used appropriately, but care needs to be taken not to affect the athletes’ competition.

Environmental factors:
Consider environmental factors around the tennis court, such as the height and location of trees, buildings, etc., to avoid adverse effects on the lighting effect.
According to local climate conditions and seasonal changes, the lighting scheme is adjusted to meet different lighting needs.

Maintenance and maintenance:
Lighting equipment needs regular maintenance and maintenance to ensure its normal operation and extend its service life.
Regularly check the cleanliness of lamps, damage degree, etc., timely replacement of damaged lamps and accessories.
By considering the above factors, the lux value suitable for outdoor tennis courts can be calculated, and the lighting scheme that meets the needs of competition and use can be designed.
