LED Lighting for Tennis Courts

Perfect lighting solutions for tennis courts – by August Müller Lichttechnik

For balanced and good lighting of your tennis court, choosing the right lighting technique is of high importance.


In order to track the fast ball, it is imperative to have even, glare-free, and flicker-free lighting throughout the court.

The release of melatonin (sleep hormone) is slowed down by good and bright light, preventing fatigue and increasing the ability to concentrate.

Impact risks can thus be minimized, performance potential can be better exploited and the enjoyment of the game can be increased.

With efficient and good lighting, you can cost-effectively extend the time your tennis court is playable.

Professional lighting of your tennis court is the basis for high utilization both in training and hobby use as well as for competitions.

The LED floodlights of the AML-FLP series from August Müller Lichttechnik are tailored to the special requirements for the illumination of tennis courts and convince with particularly high energy efficiency, very long service life and full weather protection through IP65 classification. A beam angle of 120° reduces glare and the colour temperature of 4,000K provides a neutral light. Thanks to high-quality LED drivers from Mean Well, the light is absolutely flicker-free.

Lighting intensity


Tennis courts need to have excellent lighting. The fast ball sport needs good illumination to be able to track the ball.
However, the lighting must not dazzle in order to create good playing conditions.

The illuminance to be achieved is specified in DIN 12464 and provides for 3 lighting classes.
Class I = High-performance competitions are illuminated at 600 lx.
Class II = Medium level competitions 350 lx
Class III = Simple competitions, school and recreational sports 200 lx

New construction/replanning of your tennis court

We recommend lighting a standard tennis court with our AML FLP-200 D floodlights. With only 16 lights you have already reached the minimum lux level of over 200 lux for simple competitions, as well as for school and recreational sports. Thereby 2 masts with a height of 8m are set up on each side of the pitch.


A total of 4 spotlights will then be mounted per pole, with 2 each facing the tee area and 2 facing the center of the field.

Your savings compared to traditional lighting


With the AML-FLP-200 D, you replace 16 metal halide (mercury vapor) lamps of 250 W each, resulting in a total electricity savings of 800 W/h. With a useful life of at least 15 years and an average duty cycle of 8 h/day, this results in electricity savings of 35,040 kW/h. At an average electricity price of currently 27.5 cents/kWh, this corresponds to a total electricity cost saving of 9,636.00 EUR.


If 16 halogen bulbs with 1,000 W each are replaced under the same conditions, this even results in electricity cost savings totaling 154,176.00 EUR.
