Indoor tennis courts allow the players the convenience of playing tennis all year around regardless of the weather. Whether it is winter or raining, people can enjoy a good game of tennis any time they wish at an indoor facility. Aside from the protection it offers, one of the most vital points of an indoor court is the lighting. Without an ample amount of light throughout the facility the indoor tennis courts cannot fully function since it will hinder the player's ability to play.
In a large indoor sporting facility windows are often never enough. You need light even during the day to provide the adequate amount of light required by players. This is why one should always be willing to invest on a good lighting system rather than installing inferior light fixtures that just cannot handle the job.
At Tennis Universal they offer two solutions for good indoor tennis lighting
. They offer a traditional oudoor down-ward lighting fixture adapted to provide even better lighting indoor and alternatively, an indirect up-ward lighting fixture. The major difference between the two can first be seen in the type of places they may be installed in. A direct down-ward lighting will drop from the ceiling providing direct light to the surface. Here a low-mount technology that is used to provide focused light to the surface is used, a technology that is also used outdoors
to provide ample amount of lighting without disturbing the neighbors or the players with unnecessary glare.
The indirect upward lighting fixtures are more exclusive in their installations. They can only be installed in facilities where the ceiling and all the structures on the ceiling (such as pipes, vents, etc) are all painted white to provide the required reflectance. If the ceiling is painted white the indirect upward lighting emits light at a specific angle using a patented technology. This lighting allows for even spreading of light and elimination of annoying things like glare of shadows.
No matter which solution you opt for you will be greatly pleased with the results and the players will also be pleased with the comfortable atmosphere that professional lighting fixtures offer. Having poor lighting can easily tire out a player without him/her even noticing. This can eventually lead to reduced playtime which is bad for the tennis owners. A good lighting system is simply one of the best investments you can make with your facility.
