LED Racquetball Court Lighting

LED Lighting Designed Specifically for Racquetball and Squash Courts

1st Source LED Racquetball Court Lights have a rated life of 100,000 hours while offering 60 to 70% energy savings, lower maintenance, and higher efficiency over fluorescent and HID. All fixtures are Made in the USA and are BAA Compliant.

Key Benefits of LED Racquetball Court Lighting

  • 60% to 70% energy savings over outdated HID and fluorescent lighting
  • Rated life of 100,000 hours greatly reduces maintenance costs
  • Even light distribution and high CRI for better visual acuity for during play
  • Control options include occupancy sensors, dimming and daylight harvesting
  • Flush fit and obscured tempered glass lens provides true rebound during play

Housing Sizes and Lumen Packages

We offer 1×4, 2×2 and 2×4 LED fixtures for courts with recessed hard ceilings. Typically, (6) fixtures are required per 40’x 20’x 20′ racquetball court. The same fixture count is ideal for dedicated squash courts (32’x 21’x 18′). Lumen offerings include 12,000 nominal lumens for residential and recreational courts, 17,000 nominal lumens for club and competition play and 19,000 nominal lumens for professional competition play (video).

Determining Fit Into An Existing Opening

The best way is to access the existing fixture for measurements and mounting style. Unfortunately, 1×4, 2×4 and 2×2 sizes are nominal and can vary slightly for each manufacturer. If access is limited or too costly to survey dimensions, 1st Source has several universal and custom fit options that will minimize down time.

Frame Mount or Flange Mount

Our Frame Out option is constructed to fit inside a frame built around the fixture which sets inside the opening. All 1st Source frame out fixtures have fastener openings to secure with screw bolts to the existing frame. Our Flange Mount option is constructed to fit into the existing ceiling cut out. Uni-lug swing arms sandwich the fixture flush to the opening and secure to the top of the hard ceiling. 1st Source offers lay-in style or custom fit options.

Energy Savings

1st Source LED Racquetball Court Lighting delivers 60% to 70% energy savings over outdated HID and fluorescent systems. Better light distribution and a higher lumen per watt combine for optimum lighting levels while using less energy. Immediate re-strike also requires no warm up period versus HID fixtures which begin to draw power before emitting light. Add dimming, occupancy sensors for extended savings.


With a rated of life of 100,000 hours, our LED Racquetball Court Lighting will dramatically reduce maintenance costs associated with bulb and ballast replacement. Converting to LED Racquetball Lighting eliminates constant swap outs requiring a lift or scaffolding. Linear LED is also easier to maintain, highly sustainable and may be upgraded for retrofit in the future.


1st Source LED Racquetball Court Lighting combines better light spread for maximum distribution and higher lumen per watt for increased energy savings. 1st Source LED Racquetball Court Lights are constructed with high quality LED components and vented aluminum housings for maximum heat dissipation and long service life. High CRI provides better visual acuity during play. An obscured tempered glass lens is secured firmly into the door frame of the fixture. The lens stays seated during impact and provides true rebound during play.Obscured-diffusion minimizes glare and disperses light evenly throughout the court.


1st Source LED Racquetball Lighting is built to withstand repeated high velocity impact from a racquet or squash ball. All of our LED Racquetball Court Lights are constructed of aluminum (superior to steel for heat dissipation), and are thermally tested for proper heat sink to absorb and and disperse heat away from LED diodes and drivers. This is crucial for enclosed recessed installations. A couple of inches of clearance above the fixture is advisable when installed.  All of our LED Racquetball Court fixtures have passed stringent thermal testing with CSA.  All fixtures are bench tested prior to shipping and backed by a 5 year product warranty.

Dimming and Controls

All of our racquetball court fixtures are low voltage and/or line voltage capable. Fixtures may be prepared with dimming leads to run low voltage wiring to a dimmer switch or may specified with line voltage dimming. Integral control sensors may be added to the fixture to control on/off for occupancy or configure desired dimming levels. Fixtures may also be controlled for on/off with a room ceiling or wall sensor located preferably near the entrance. 1st source also offers wireless systems for control via remote, PC or mobile device.
