As a sports lighting manufacturer, it is important to understand the factors that affect the wattage of lights needed for a particular court. Here are some additional points to consider:

Type of sport: Different sports require different lighting levels. For example, basketball and tennis require higher lighting levels than soccer.

Level of play: Higher levels of play require higher lighting levels. For example, professional soccer games require higher lighting levels than amateur games.

Color rendering index (CRI): CRI is a measure of how accurately colors are rendered under the lights. A higher CRI requires more wattage to achieve the same lighting level.

Light distribution: The type of light distribution needed depends on the shape and size of the court. For example, a rectangular court requires different light distribution than a circular court.

Control systems: Advanced control systems can optimize the wattage and light levels for different times of day, reducing energy consumption and improving the playing experience.

  • Common cases of lights wattage:

Indoor sports courts: 100 W – 500 W

5 players a side football pitch:200 W – 500 W

7 players a side football pitch:300 W – 1000 W

11 players a side football pitch:500 W – 2000 W

It is important to work with a lighting professional who can take into account all of these factors and provide a customized solution for your specific court. They will also be able to advise on the best type of lighting technology (LED, HID, etc.) for your needs.

In addition to the wattage of the lights, it is also important to consider the quality of the lighting, including the color temperature and uniformity. This can greatly affect the visibility and safety of players on the court.
