Lighting requirements for professionals in tennis organizations

The Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) requires lighting standards for professional tournaments and divides the requirements into the World Tour and the Challenger Tour.

  • ATP World Tour: For the World Tour, lighting must be evenly distributed on the court with a minimum intensity of 100 feet of candlelight (approximately 1,076 lux). For televised games, the minimum lighting level should average about 285 feet of candlelight (about 3,067 lux).
  • ATP Challenger Tour: For the Challenger Tour, lighting must be evenly distributed on the court, with a minimum light intensity of 70 feet of candlelight (approximately 750 lux).
  • Light POLE INSTALLATION: According to the ATP, all light poles should be installed to distribute the light around the court evenly. Installation height shall not be lower than 40′ or any other non-display light in the facility. For example, if other non-performance venues are 60 feet tall, all upgraded light fixtures should also be 60 feet tall.
