Cricket lighting Guidance
CRICKET PLAY FORMATS
This Guidance Note considers fiveunique playing area situations.
1. Outdoor playing area
2. Outdoor practice nets
3. Outdoor multi-oval formats
4. Indoor Cricket court
5. Indoor practice nets.
The varied dimensions of playing areas must be a key consideration when planning and designing lighting infrastructure for both indoor and outdoor play and practice.
The planning, design and layout of floodlighting infrastructure is critical to ensure the required uniformity of illumination, to minimise glare and obstruction to participants and play and to minimise the obtrusive effects of outdoor lighting.
Floodlighting illuminance levels for most sports depend on the following three factors:
1. Safety and comfort of participants, officials and spectators
2. The size, speed and contrast of the ball, and
3. The level of competition to be played (and trained for) under floodlit conditions. As a fast moving ball sport the lighting illuminance requirements for cricket are generally comparatively higher than for the ball sports of Football, Rugby codes– the seasonal sports that cricket typically shares venues with.
Illuminance requirements are most important in the centre wicket (pitch) and square areas where heightened activity occurs. For this reason higher illuminance levels are specified in this area than for the outfield.
Illuminance is also important to adequately disclose the position of boundaries.
