Many factors go into selecting the right lighting system for sports complexes. The difference is in location whether indoor or outdoor as in both lighting has to be uniform and encouraging. If at a crucial point or strike the beaming lights hit onto a player's faces a game or match is lost. Good quality outdoor sports lighting should illuminate entire playing areas with low-mast or high-mast pole configurations depending on sports played.
Design and installation
For public stadiums or court’s decision should be taken by experts. If deciding on personal tennis or basketball court, then also a specialist is of utmost importance. The reason is placement of lighting which should not impinge on player's movements.
With more and more sports activities scheduled for late evening outdoor lighting has to be of recommended level and comply to the relevant Australian Standards to avoid glare or hit and miss lighting. Recreational or smaller sports activities normally consume 200 to 500 lux. Professional games with television coverage and larger spectator attendance require higher levels of lighting.
Sports lighting is fast becoming a highly challenge of quality, design, location and alignment of field or premises. LED lighting technology is fast gaining popularity due to its energy efficiency and long maintenance free life which is generally in excess of 50,000 hrs. Besides new technical trends, certain rules need to be followed for placement of outdoor sports lighting. The freestanding outdoor fixtures should not exceed a certain height depending on size and level of playing arena. Similarly a spill and glare control package should be fitted to protect spectators and players. Flashing lights that revolve or rotate or flicker should be avoided unless essential. A level playing/sports field is as important as skill and fitness of player.

Yes. LED lights are the more desired option today versus the more conventional lighting that was used previously. There are not only savings on energy consumption, but also the benefit of not having to change lamps on a regular basis.
