You might be asking yourself why lighting would be such a concern for tennis courts. Isn’t tennis usually a daytime sport and played outdoors? Isn’t natural light good enough?
In actuality, as tennis grows in popularity, more and more people are hitting indoor courts after a long day’s work, making the features of LED tennis court lights more essential. Not only is this a desirable aesthetic feature, but also a safety-related one. And on top of all that, lighting is essential when broadcasting games on video.
For these reasons and more, many sports facilities choose AEON LED luminaires for efficient tennis court lighting.
Despite the bright green and orange colors of most regulation tennis balls, their relatively small size can make them difficult to spot on the court if the lighting is anything less than ideal. It’s not just dim lighting that can take away from optimized gameplay, but also lighting that contributes to glare or is dispersed unevenly in the sports facility.
AEON LED luminaires reduce the amount of glare on the court, improving the players’ tennis experience by preventing errors due to poor lighting decisions. The ability to select from a range of beam angles means facility directors can properly direct the light exactly where it is needed. No tennis player needs to suffer a poor game due to inefficient illumination.
Finally, AEON LED luminaires feature a high color rendering index which makes the ball easier to see. Optimized illumination on the tennis court allows players to perform to their best ability.
Not only do AEON LED luminaires make for a better experience on the court, but they also make for an enhanced experience for those watching.
Reduced glare and proper color rendering mean less eye fatigue and allow spectators to not miss a single second of a quality tennis match. And as a most practical consideration, optimized lighting helps keep the people on the stands safer as they move along the bleachers and steps.
For those watching at home or on their phones and devices, proper lighting is critical. LED lighting with a color rendering index greater than 85, such as AEON LED luminaires, allows colors to be adequately seen even when broadcast on television or over the internet. However, if you want to get the most out of the at-home viewing experience, AEON LED luminaires were designed specifically for 4K and HD broadcasting. It would be like sitting right there on the court itself.
Whether or not your players have spectators, proper illumination is still a must when it comes to the safety of everyone at your sports facility. But it can get expensive, can’t it?
Another reason why AEON LED luminaires are becoming the lighting choice for indoor tennis courts is the cost savings. Switching from conventional lighting to LED leads to lower electric costs almost immediately. Over time, these lights end up paying for themselves. They last longer than more traditional lighting options and reduce costs in labor, maintenance, and replacement.
Optimal lighting combined with lower costs across the board make AEON LED luminaries the absolute best choice for indoor tennis courts.
Traditional lighting setups tend to be a bit on the fragile side. That’s not a concern with AEON LED luminaires. These fixtures have gone through rigorous trials, including ANSI 3G testing, and can withstand constant vibration and vigorous impact tests that meet or exceed all national and international standards. You can install AEON LED luminaires knowing they will deliver the best lighting for years on end—even in the most challenging sports facility environments.
As found in many older sports facilities, traditional fluorescent lighting contains mercury vapor and other components harmful to the environment and people. AEON LED luminaires do not include those same hazardous chemical substances, making it a greener, friendlier option. As LED luminaires are sturdier than thin fluorescent tubes, they are also less prone to breakage.
With AEON LED luminaires being built to last, they don’t need replacing as often as traditional lights. That means less waste. Combined with the more modest energy needs, you’re now putting out a much smaller carbon footprint.
When you add everything up, why would you not choose AEON LED solutions to light your tennis courts? These lights boast significant savings in energy consumption compared to many other gym lighting setups, more even and balanced lighting, less glare, and solid environmentally-friendly construction.
However you do the math, AEON LED luminaires are the best choice available. Request a catalog now and find the perfect LED lighting solutions for your tennis courts!
