Therefore, lighting design is an integral part of the basketball court construction process. Scientific and reasonable basketball stadium lighting design can not only ensure the normal development of basketball, but also avoid some security problems. Basketball hall lighting has more factors to consider than ordinary architectural lighting design.


The new outdoor basketball court will encounter the lighting problems of the stadium. For example, what kind of lamps should be purchased? How to arrange lamps? What should the illumination of the light be like?


The lighting of the court has a direct influence on the illumination of the court such as the basketball court. The main lighting method is as follows.


1.THE top layout

Most of the lighting methods are indoor basketball courts. The lamps are arranged above the field. The beam is arranged perpendicular to the plane of the site. The top arrangement should use symmetrical light distribution lamps. It is suitable for the main low space and the horizontal illumination of the ground. A stadium with high uniformity requirements and no TV broadcast requirements, the luminaire should have an anti-glare device.


2.Arranged on both sides

The luminaires are arranged on both sides of the field, and the arrangement of the beams is not perpendicular to the plane of the site. The lamps on both sides should be equipped with asymmetric light distribution lamps, which are arranged on the horse track. It is suitable for stadiums with high vertical illumination requirements and TV broadcast requirements. The angle control is used to reduce glare. When the lamps are installed on both sides, the aiming angle of the lamps should not exceed 65 degrees.


3. Mixed arrangement

The combination of the top layout and the two sides of the arrangement: the hybrid arrangement should use a variety of light distribution forms of lamps, suitable for large comprehensive stadiums. The layout of the luminaires is arranged on the top and on both sides. The luminaires should have the characteristics of instant start, accurate light distribution and anti-glare device.

Because the basketball court is divided into two areas, the sports area and the grandstand, it is necessary to take into account the perspective of the audience when designing the lighting. The total lighting quality and performance goals of the entire basketball court are required to be consistent. Nowadays, most basketball courts are multi-functional and comprehensive, and the lighting design should be able to meet the lighting requirements of other forms of cultural and sports activities, as well as the lighting quality requirements of photographic video.


The uniform illumination of the basketball court is uniform: the lighting layout of the basketball court not only has to reach a certain level of horizontal illumination, but also must be evenly illuminated. Avoid the lighting of the basketball court sports area, showing the effect of light and dark. The lighting of the entire basketball court to achieve full coverage of the light, no shadow effect.
