Playing Volleyball at Night
When most people think of volleyball courts, they might picture an ancient, wobbly net on the beach with groups of tanned beachgoers casually playing a game in the middle of a bright, sunny day. Volleyball is a sport of the beach as it can easily be played in the sand. However, more and more homeowners, schools, and private communities are hopping on the volleyball bandwagon. It’s no surprise, then, that these courts require lighting in order for games to be played at night. Why stop the fun when the sun goes down? Both beachfront volleyball courts and private backyard courts can benefit from strong, even, and reliable lighting that lasts for years and years. If you have a unique volleyball court or specific requirements to hit, there are many different packages that can fulfill your needs. Access Fixtures has a team of lighting specialists who can quickly and professionally provide you a custom solution to ensure your court is perfectly lit.
Volleyball Court Lighting Standards & Regulations
Volleyball as a sport can be played at many different levels, but some things remain similar across all volleyball setups that make lighting them simple. Volleyball courts are 30′ wide by 60′ long. This is a standard size — no matter the level of play involved, every volleyball court will have the same dimensions. The net is positioned at the 30′ mark so that each team’s playable area is 30′ x 30′. Net heights can vary depending on a number of factors. Footcandle recommendations can range depending on the level of play. For recreational and club-level volleyball play, 7 to 20 footcandles is appropriate in most cases. For competition or professional level, up to 50 footcandles is typically utilized. Volleyball court lighting is generally installed outdoors near water and beaches and possibly high-wind areas, so poles and fixtures must be sturdy and sealed. Lights must also be flicker-free and high CRI. LED fixtures are an appropriate solution for volleyball court lighting because they tend to meet all of these criteria unlike traditional light sources such as metal halide.
