How should I set out my lights in the sports hall?
Typically badminton is the primary activity in the hall and the main activity that requires participants to look upwards. It is therefore advisable to arrange lighting so that the strips run between the courts rather than above them so as not to distract or dazzle the badminton players. In a four badminton court hall this normally means 5 runs of lighting across the hall at the sides of each of the badminton courts.
Please remember that all luminaires should be coordinated with the position of netting trackway and that the underside of the luminaires should be above minimum height requirement, and normally above the top of any cricket or division netting trackway (plus an allowance to enable covers to be removed to change bulbs).
