Whether it is for indoor basketball courts or outdoor, a well designed lighting system provide club members the freedom to play regardless of the weather or time of day. Even during dark cloudy days or the middle of the night, the court can be be fully functional allowing the facility owners to maximize the time of usage on the courts. This translates to higher profit for private owners or higher level of service for free recreational areas or school.
In the case of outdoor courts the facility owners had trouble keeping their courts open during the night even with lighting systems installed in their courts due to the complication with surrounding areas. For example, the residents near the facility can complain that the courts are too bright during the late night hours, preventing them from having a good night's rest, and it is difficult to continuously operate a basketball court under such pressure since members will easily boycott the club and even file complaints against the facility.
Tennis Universal, a company that has been providing equipments to sport facilities in the North American region for over 30 years, wanted to solve this problem for their clients so they introduced a new type of outdoor lighting system. The metal halide low-mount lighting system they offer focuses the light onto the courts, minimizing the amount of stray lighting. Not only does this eliminate the local complaints but it also provides a more comfortable lighting atmosphere to the players, reducing glare and hence preventing eye fatigue.
A similar system can be used even in the indoor clubs. A low-mount downlight can provide the benefits of comfortable lighting to the players in the same way by reducing glare and eye fatigue while allowing them to comfortably play in facilities during the day for those places that lack an outside source of light. Depending on the structure of the facility a special up-ward indirect lighting fixtures can also be used. Only available to facilities with white ceilings, the indirect lighting offers advantages such as shadow elimination to make the activity even more enjoyable.
