About Volleyball Court

Volleyball stands as a unique ball sport, featuring a rectangular court divided by a tall net at its center. Each team occupies one side of the court, and the game employs a volleyball—a ball with a sheepskin or artificial leather shell and a rubber bladder, similar in size to a football. A standard volleyball court measures 18 meters in length and 9 meters in width, with a buffer zone extending 3 meters beyond the change line and 3 meters beyond the baseline. Additionally, there is a 5-meter buffer zone beyond the change line and an 8-meter buffer zone beyond the baseline. The international standard mandates a height clearance of 7 meters above the court and 12.5 meters within the playing area, free from any obstructions.

Volleyball's dynamic nature involves the ball traversing the air in various directions and angles, while players move in diverse angles, directions, and at varying speeds. The player's engagement in the game encompasses the intricate process of tracking the ball's flight path and aerial positioning.


Indoor Volleyball Court Specifications


  • Dimensions: The court follows NCAA, FIVB, and USAVB standards, measuring 59 feet (18 meters) in length and 29.5 feet (9 meters) in width, as stipulated by FIVB regulations.
  • Lighting Setup: For optimal lighting, the use of direct fixtures above the court is recommended. This method, known for its efficiency and energy-saving advantages, is particularly suitable for LED sports lighting systems.

Installation Guidelines for Indoor Volleyball Court Lamps

  • Top lighting: Lamps are positioned above the court with the light beam perpendicular to the playing surface. Symmetrical light distribution lamps are preferred, making it suitable for amateur competitions, professional training, entertainment activities, and national fitness.
  • Side Lighting: Lamps are placed on both sides with the light beam not perpendicular to the court layout. Symmetrical or asymmetrical light distribution lamps can be used. When arranged on both sides, the aiming angle of the luminaire should not exceed 65°. This setup is suitable for various activities, including amateur competitions, physical training, professional training, and domestic competitions.
  • Mixed lighting: This approach combines top and side lighting, allowing for a variety of light distribution forms. It is recommended for large-scale venues, such as major leagues, professional competitions, and international events, where high illumination standards are essential.

Outdoor Volleyball Court Lighting Options


When illuminating outdoor volleyball courts, various methods can be considered. Typically, light poles are employed to organize the lighting setup. Using either 4 or 6 poles on both sides, lights are positioned at four angles around the volleyball court. The LED lights are installed at a height of approximately 10-15 meters, and multiple LED lights can be mounted on each pole.

  • A Light Uniformity

    Achieving optimal light uniformity, defined as the ratio of minimum illuminance to average illuminance on a surface, is crucial for enhanced illumination and comfort on volleyball courts. The more uniform the light distribution, the better the overall illumination quality. This aspect becomes particularly vital when the volleyball court is utilized for professional leagues, competitions, and other large-scale events. RAYBORN prioritizes and meticulously considers light uniformity in the design of LED volleyball court lighting to meet the stringent requirements of such high-profile occasions.

  •  B Color Rendering Index (CRI) of LED Luminaires

    The Color Rendering Index (CRI) serves as a key metric for evaluating the color rendering ability of light sources and is indicative of the overall quality of LED lighting. A higher CRI signifies superior color reproduction, enhancing the ability to faithfully represent the colors of objects. This aspect is especially crucial for televised events, where the realism of the visual broadcast is paramount. RAYBORN ensures that its LED volleyball court lighting solutions uphold high CRI standards, contributing to vibrant and true-to-life visuals during broadcasts.

  •  C Volleyball Court Floodlight Color Temperature

    Proper color temperature selection is essential for creating an optimal playing environment on volleyball courts. RAYBORN typically employs a color temperature of 4000-5700K for indoor volleyball courts and 5000-6500K for outdoor venues. This careful consideration ensures that the lighting aligns with the specific needs of each setting, providing optimal visibility and ambiance for players and spectators alike.

  • D Low Glare

    Stability and visual comfort are paramount in volleyball court lighting. RAYBORN prioritizes the absence of flickering or strobe effects in its lighting solutions, ensuring a stable and smooth illumination experience. Moreover, the design emphasizes the elimination of glare hazards, creating a venue environment that is not only well-lit but also free from distractions such as shaky or dazzling lighting.

 Advantages of LED Volleyball Court Lighting Over Traditional HID Lamps


The transition from traditional HID lamps to LED volleyball court lighting is driven by the high efficiency and energy-saving advantages of LED technology. Not only do LED lights offer superior performance, but they also contribute to environmental protection by minimizing pollution, aligning with the global trend towards sustainable practices. RAYBORN's LED volleyball lamps match traditional HID devices in luminous efficiency and illuminance, making them a reliable and eco-friendly choice for modern sports facilities.

Professional lighting design for volleyball courts necessitates DIALUX simulation. This process enables precise calculations for determining the optimal number of lamps, as well as the ideal lamp positions and lens angles to achieve optimal illumination. RAYBORN goes the extra mile by offering customers free DIALUX simulations, providing valuable insights that not only enhance the quality of volleyball court lighting but also save customers significant labor costs in the planning and installation process.
