I'm currently working on several projects that require lighting of football pitches and tennis courts. I know Philips released at some point a series of guides by the name of "Guide to the artificial lighting of..." but I can't find them anywhere. Could someone point me in the right direction?
It doesn't ring a bell currently, I will check internally. I did recently receive a question related to lighting and tenniscourts and my colleagues suggested the person to direct to this website: http://bit.ly/KfMpe1
Does this help?
I'd already found that one. Here's the Philips guide to the artificial lighting of football pitches I was talking about:
Nonetheless, I've not been able to find this guide anywhere on the Philips site, nor a similar one for tennis courts.
Regarding Football lighting, Philips has published with FIFA a guide in 2002. This guide had been updated.
You can find the update version on the FIFA website.
Regarding tennis you can use the link you mentioned on the ITF website. Because as the football guide, the tennis guide written by Philips is quite old.
You will ba able to find also some information about artifical lighting of indoor and outdoor sports venues.
On top of it you can also use the norm EN12193.
Dear Andres, Thanks for the discussion on sports lighting. We believe sports facilities such as tennis courts and football pitches can be illluminated with LED. Actually that would offer also new possibilities. We are researching this and keep you and the other Light Community members posted over here! Thanks and good luck Rogier
