This Guide is aimed at, and will be useful to, lighting specifiers, designers, equipment providers, contractors, users, maintainers, sports facilities managers and developers of sports facilities. Following an introductory section describing the general requirements for sports lighting, including illuminance, light distribution, glare, emergency lighting, planning requirements and safety, no less than 52 separate sports are given specific consideration.
The specific requirements of multipurpose sports halls are discussed, as well as those of large and small stadia and indoor arenas. Outline guidance is given on lighting for television, though this is a rapidly changing area and it is vital to consult the television company involved. Final sections deal with light sources, maintenance and luminaire selection.
Appendices give useful information on calculation methods, aiming of floodlights, relevant sports governing bodies and typical play area dimensions.
A replacement to Chapter 7 was issued in July 2013; this has been incorporated into the PDF available for download here, and is available on request.
The flicker factor formula on page 51e has been corrected, changing '/' in the top line of the formula to '-'.
This Guide is currently under review, and a new edition is due to be published in late 2022.
