The Importance of Good Quality Lighting in Sports Facilities

If we look at our local area, our sports facilities are one of the most important parts of it. Either watching a sports game or being a part of the game, itself is what brings us together, and it is important to keep these facilities regularly updated. It can be hard to realise the long list of why updating the lighting for your sports facilities is so important, such as the lowered cost to your business or the improved security. Here at JHP Electrical, we wanted to talk about the importance of good quality lighting in your sports facilities.  




Keeping your members safe is such an important aspect of your sports facilities. Having high visibility means that players can see well, and spectators can easily watch the game. This protects your members from long-term damage such as eyestrain or injuries. If an injury is down to poor lighting, the responsibility could fall under the club’s name and could be bad on their reputation.   



Improved lighting means safety for your members and deters any unwanted visitors. Installing alarm systems sometimes just isn’t good enough in deterring a break-in. A well-lit sports facility will lower the likelihood of a break-in, and could also positively recognise the description of an intruder. This will give a sports facility more control and peace of mind should something like a break-in occur. 


Low maintenance 

Lighting in a sports ground is usually above 100 feet in the air, meaning that it is important that they are as low maintenance as possible. Leaving lamps up for too long can cause damage to control gear, bring a build-up of dirt and a reduced lifespan. With good quality lighting, this ensures that lights are low maintenance and the lifespan is at its full potential. Here at JHP Electrical, we understand the importance of keeping your lighting maintained in the best possible condition, which is why we provide an electrical maintenance plan. 


Saving money 

Not only will the quality of lighting look better, but it will look better for your electricity bill too. Surprisingly, updating your lighting is more money efficient than standard lighting. Investing in quality lighting will save you more money over the years than a short-term fix with poor quality lighting. 


To conclude, proper lighting in sports lighting makes a huge difference. Wherever it’s a football pitch, golfing range or rugby pitch, the lighting is one of the most important aspects to consider. If lighting ever fails, it could bring the event to a halt and will result in unhappy players and customers.
