About Basketball Court

There are basketball courts in schools, stadium,neighborhoods, and parks. What is the basketball court's lighting layout? Rayborn basketball courts light are equipped with indoor/outdoor LED floodlgiht and high bay lights that are appropriate for indoor/outdoor basketball courts in backyards, universities, park,schools.led are a superior alternative to metal halogen, halogen, and fluorescent lighting.LED basketball court lighting is more efficient. Converting to LED lighting is a wise decision..this is because stadiums and courts demand high brightness and electricity.

Indoor Basketball Court Illumination


For indoor basketball courts, low glare is crucial due to reflective stadium floors, impacting players and spectators. Direct lighting fixtures offer effectiveness, efficiency, and energy savings, while indirect illumination is recommended. Top, side, and mixed lighting layouts are options. It's essential to ensure lux levels, color temperature, and color rendering index comply with lighting specifications. Consider compensating for absorbed ceiling light with additional LED wattage.

This includes 20-24 pieces of 200W LED lights, positioned at a height of 10 meters, arranged in a layout of 2X10 or 4X6. Utilizing professional lighting software ensures an approximate average stadium illumination of 400-500 lux, meeting competition criteria.




Basketball Court Lighting Precautions

  • Elevate your court experience with precision lighting. From flicker-free solutions and uniform illumination to color rendering considerations and anti-glare measures, we ensure optimal performance and visual comfort. Explore our concise guide to illuminate your basketball court with efficiency and quality.

  •  AFlicker-Free

    Invest in high-quality LED lighting for basketball courts, capable of at least 6000 FPS video recording to minimize flicker. Maintain a scintillation rate below 0.3% for optimal performance with modern high-speed cameras.

  •  BUniformity of Light

    Prioritize illuminance uniformity in basketball court lighting design, especially for professional games like NBA and CBA. Achieving a high uniformity ratio enhances visual comfort and overall illumination quality.

  • C Color Rendering

    Evaluate lighting quality using the Color Rendering Index (CRI). Higher CRI values improve color rendering, providing a more realistic and vibrant viewing experience, crucial for high-definition broadcasts.

  • D Color Temperature

    Consider the color temperature based on the setting. Indoor courts benefit from 4000-5700K, while outdoor courts are recommended to have a color temperature range of 5000-6500K.

  • E Anti-glare

    Incorporate anti-glare measures in basketball court lighting design to enhance the viewing experience for both athletes and spectators. Minimize excessive glare to avoid discomfort and vision impairment for players.

  • F Protection Against Surges/IP Rating

    Ensure surge protection and a minimum IP rating of IP65 for LED basketball court lighting, especially for outdoor installations. This safeguards the system against damage and ensures durability in diverse weather conditions.

 Evolution to LED Basketball Court Lighting


Traditional HID lamps on basketball courts are being phased out in favor of LED lighting due to their high efficiency and energy-saving benefits. Not only do LED tennis court lights offer comparable luminous efficiency and illuminance to traditional HID devices, but they also boast the advantage of being environmentally friendly. In the event of damage, LED lights pose no environmental pollution, aligning with the global trend toward environmental protection.

Professional basketball court lighting design demands precision, and DIALUX simulation is the key. RAYBORN offers free simulations, providing insights into the required number of lamps, optimal installation positions, and lens angles for top-notch tennis court lighting. This not only ensures efficient illumination but also saves customers significant labor costs.
