Dimensions of a Badminton court :
In a multi-sports hall, a Badminton court measures 13.40 x 6.10m. Very often, there are several badminton courts in a multi-sports hall. The layout and location of the courts vary according to the size of the hall.
In a facility where badminton is the main sport played, lights must not be positioned above the playing area, unless they are more than 9m high. For the comfort of players, who regularly look upwards, great attention must be paid to the positioning and distribution of the light sources.
Lighting point measurement grid for Badminton :
For badminton courts, the photometric measurement grid defined by the French Badminton Federation (FFBad) includes 10 measurement points.
Regulations: The light intensity is read at 10 points in the playing area with measurements taken at floor-level. For satisfactory lighting, the uniformity coefficient (C.U.) may not be less than 0.7. It is calculated by dividing the lowest point measured by the arithmetic average of the 10 points.
Levels: Local 300 Lux, Regional 500 Lux, National 750 Lux and International 1,000 Lux.
No lighting fixtures may be installed above the playing surface.
No light source may be placed above the playing surface, and all sources of glare must be avoided
