    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard contains recommendations and requirements specific to the lighting of outdoor tennis courts (the requirements refer to methods of assessment and measurement and levels of performance). This Standard deals with training and play up to competition level, and takes into account spectator viewing requirements associated with these levels of play. This Standard does not address the amenity and emergency lighting which may be required in public areas associated with tennis court complexes. Additional recommendations and requirements applicable to all sports venues, including those for outdoor tennis, are contained in AS 2560.1. Recommendations and requirements applicable to lighting for indoor tennis are provided in AS 2560.2.2. This Standard does not detail the special requirements of lighting for colour television broadcasting. This Standard makes recommendations, but does not set requirements, regarding obtrusive light released into the environment from sports lighting installations (see Clause 11).
