Converting your tennis court lighting with LED technology will dramatically improve the playing experience.
The brightness, uniformity, and color rendering LED lighting provides is superior to legacy technologies. These parameters allow the players to track ball flight and make the sport more enjoyable and competitive.
Above, SES President and Owner James McKinney takes light meter readings to determine photometrics. These readings are taken from 23 points on each tennis court in order to both determine the current light levels, and to assist the customer deciding the lighting objective most appropriate for their players and facility.
This data is the backbone in determining how we best design your lighting to provide even light saturation throughout the playing surface and can be later used to provide your players a scorecard of the success in your lighting conversion.
After we determine the appropriate USTA Lighting Objective for your facility, we then design the system with our independent lighting engineers.
At SES Lighting, we have evaluated numerous products and only a few have the capability to provide Class I-IV USTA tennis court lighting standards.
With tennis sports lighting, we are able to achieve Class I – IV lighting levels in accordance with the USTA and Sports Builder Association Standards.
Each court is engineered for the proper fixtures, angles and heights with proper sports lighting design.

Depending on your utility company, rebates may be available for your project. For indoor facilities, tax deductions may also be available to offset the cost.
Your SES Certified Analysis® will include every detail of the project: LED Product and Lighting Control System Costs, Installation, Applicable Rebates and Project Management Costs.
Projects may also qualify for Capital Lease Financing and in some cases can have a neutral cash flow as the savings can offset the lease payments created with the system.

It also includes taking spectrometer readings to ensure the performance, color wavelength and lighting parameters were delivered as engineered.

Most private club sports facilities do not have evenly saturated light quality because they are using legacy technologies such as metal halide or other high-intensity discharge products to illuminate their sports surfaces.

Since SES Lighting operates as an “Owners Representative,” our SES Certified Lighting Consultants work independently from manufacturers of sports lighting products. Therefore, we are objectively able to evaluate the performance of the products in relation to the facility needs.

Lighting Control Systems can tailor brightness for players of all abilities and customize their Tennis Lighting experience. These parameters allow the players to track ball flight and make the sport more enjoyable and competitive.
Many older players, those with sensitive eyes, and those that have had recent surgery do not acclimate properly to the brightness of LED Sports Lighting. SES Lighting has innovated an affordable approach in customizing lighting levels to satisfy your players. The system can be "pre-programmed" by your staff or the players can "manually" adjust the lighting levels on their court.
This option would provide many benefits for the players and your staff. Control the brightness of the fixtures appropriate for the level of player and activity thru "Scenes".
“I highly recommend SES Lighting I first met Nelson Scott at the CMAA World Conference in 2015 at a time when LED court lighting was still in its infancy.
I presented Nelson and SES Lighting with a challenge. We have a 3 pole layout on either side and between each court, except there are no poles at the ends between two of our courts. The lighting results exceeded our expectations and we went on in the following months to install lighting on the remaining 5 courts.
SES Lighting worked with our facilities manager throughout the installation and diligently provided us with detailed light readings and follow-up. Our court lighting is outstanding, with all courts exceeding initial projections. My members are thrilled! ”
