Tennis Court LightingLight is a necessary part on any type of sports. As obvious as it may sound the players cannot function when they cannot see due to the absence of light. But while absence of light causes such a hazard, bad lighting may also be a problem. Simply having light doesn't mean that you can comfortably play sports such as tennis where the eye coordination is especially important. A glare or excess amount of light can hinder the player's ability to see the ball propoerly and may even be hazardous to the eyesight.

Light pollution is also a major concern. If there is residential housing around the neighborhood it is difficult to have a well lit court since it could, later in the evening disturb neighbors who are trying to sleep. This means that even with a lighting facility a court may have to be closed after a certain hour due to it being a nuisance to the neighborhood. The last thing you want is the local property owners filing an official complaint against your tennis court due to its excess lighting.

Tennis Universal, a well known supplier of tennis related facilities, recognized such problems and decided to do something about it to help their clients. They now offer only low-mount lighting for outdoor courts that focuses the light onto the court and not the nearby surrounding areas. This means that the court can be lit  late through the night without disturbing the other surrounding properties, allowing the players to enjoy their game at their own pace rather than being forced out of the tennis court due to bad lighting.

While keeping the light spill minimal as possible the low-mount lighting comes with a non-glare fixtures which add to reduction of light spillage. Not only does such focused light allow the players to see better but the neighbors are happy as well. Players are free to play at anytime they wish which equates to more fun for the players and higher profit for club/facility owners.

The similar technology can also be applied indoors to provide high quality lighting for the players. Aside from the traditional downward indoor lighting that uses the same high quality metal halide fixture Tennis Universal also offers a special "upward-indirect lighting”. The patented design of this lighting allows the light to be reflected at specific angles providing optimal amount of light throughout the courts. This type of lighting can eliminate unnecessary glare and shadows providing an optimal environment for the players. Depending on the layout of your indoor facility and the color of the ceiling one of the two lighting systems can be chosen for the best result possible.

Lighting is an essential part of any tennis court, both indoor and outdoor, so it should be treated as equally important as all other aspects of the court such as the surface or nets.

Tennis Universal also comes with reliability backed by their more than 30 years experience in the field of tennis related equipment.
