Lighting an outdoor basketball/multi-sports court
Playing courts designed for multi-sports should ensure that their proposed lighting considers the needs of all the various sports to be played. Care must be taken to ensure that the lighting design produces uniformity of the required illumination and that glare and light pollution are minimized.
If the playing court is to be employed at evening and nighttimes; it may be advisable to foresee a floodlighting system with lighting towers possibly with light directed towards the free throws midline; this will avoid glare problems to players from the sidelines. Appropriate care should be taken to distribute lighting as uniformly as possible on the playing court; lighting capacity should actually be adjustable according to requirements and when applicable the different competitions being hosted.
