Squash Court Lighting: At which requirements do I have to look at?

One of the most underestimated parts of a squash court is actually very essential for the game: squash court lighting. WSF court specification rule 11 states that “the court shall be lit by artificial light” and the level of illumination is at least 300 LUX, measured at 1m above floor level. Although a minimum of 300 LUX is technically permitted, reality shows that playing characteristics are extremely altered and players having huge problems seeing the ball. Many older centers are facing this issue and there is really only one solution to amend this problem.

So what can be done to make the court brighter and achieve more LUX for better visibility of the ball?

ASB has developed a lights layout configuration that achieves at least 500 LUX, measured at 1m above parquet floor level. The squash court lights layout has been developed with the aim to ensure good ball visibility not only in the center of the squash court but in all four corners as well. The squash court lights are controlled from the outside, using either a timer mechanism or a manual switch.
