What is the proper way to light a tennis court?

I am in charge of determine what kind of lights to add to our neighborhood tennis courts and need some assistance in the types of lights to use and the proper spacing.

Without question, the best lights to use in this situation would be large florescent lights. These lights not only put out a large amount of light, but they also tend to travel farther than normal lighting. This way, you can be efficient with how much you spend as well.

An ideal solution is to have 4 high powered floodlights attached to the 4 corners of the fencing. Occasionally 2 extra lights are added in line with the net posts

There are several choices for tennis court lighting. The newest is the low level lighting. These lights are in individual "pods" and the lights shine down. They require less energy and less money to burn every night, however they are not the brightest. They are adequate though for recreational night play.

To light your tennis court, you must remain at a certain consistency. What I mean is, you need to have the same amount of light on each part of the court. To obtain this, you might want to use large poles much like baseball stadium lights but smaller depending on the size of the tennis court. The lights should be white, sort of giving off a glow effect. Making it easier for everybody to play. thank you.
