IES RP-6-15 Sports and Recreational Area Lighting provides recommendations to aid in the design of sports lighting systems. Popular sports, such as baseball, tennis, basketball and football as well as recreational social activities, such as horseshoe pitching and croquet are covered.
Over the years, there have been increases in the demand for both indoor and outdoor sports facilities. To meet the increase in demand, lighting is a cost effective way to extend hours of play during hours of darkness. Lighting is also required for indoor sporting facilities during the day. With increasing power and operational costs, energy efficiency should be a key consideration when designing a lighting system.
RP-6-15 is not specific to LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) installations. It includes a discussion of metal halide, fluorescent, LED, and plasma sources.
