Lighting a multipurpose sports hall
Sports venues 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, is adequately lit and that glare is minimized. The lighting should be positioned, so they do not hinder the players’ and officials’ vision.
The specific visual requirements will depend on the activity. Most sports halls have to cater for a range of activities, and it may be necessary occasionally to accommodate different activities simultaneously in order to maximize use. It is normally necessary to design a general lighting scheme to cater to a wide range of activities and, if necessary, incorporate switching arrangements for different activities, levels of play, or simultaneous multi-use.
It is generally recommended that the lighting design be based on the requirements of the activity with the highest priority, while ensuring that, as far as practicable, all other potential activities are catered for.
