There are two primary considerations when addressing bocce ball court construction; one is the playing surface and the second is the lighting. Keep in mind that no matter how aesthetically pleasing a bocce court is, nor how expensive the drainage system is if it has an inferior surface it will get less use! Likewise, if you can not see at night the court it will also get less use. A premium surface should play fast, have minimal bounce, and be easy to maintain.
Bocce Ball Sports Game Courts with LED Lighting
The game of bocce ball is very old. There is evidence that a bocce-like sport involving rolling rocks toward a target was even played by ancient Egyptians. The formal game known as bocce, or bocci, was subsequently developed in Italy and spread across the globe, becoming a popular game in many Western countries today. Bocce matches sometimes take place at night, and Gappsi has developed lighting packages for any level of competition.
When lighting a bocce court, many factors come into play. The light must cover the entire surface. The light must not shine into the eyes of the players. The fixtures must be durable to withstand an errant toss or unsteady player. Finally, the fixtures must be attractive so as not to detract from the daytime appearance of the court.
Why Light The Bocce Court?
Admit it or not, you might be wondering and having the question of why you should light the bocce court in your backyard. The straightforward answer is that it enhances its features at night. Aesthetically speaking, it would be a good view to look at after dark even if you’re not using it.
Furthermore, it ensures that it won’t be a nesting place for insects or small animals. And also ensure your safety from hazards and avoid accidents like missteps with the border of the bocce court when dark.
Bocce Ball Sports Game Court Sizes
The actual bocce court is a long rectangle filled with a non-bounce surface such as crushed oyster shell, clay, or gravel. Bocce sports game courts are generally constructed in one of three rectangle sizes:
- For competition-level bocce, courts are 13′ x 90′.
- A typical country or recreational club bocce ball court will be 13′ x 76′,
- The backyard bocce court will generally be between 10′-12′ wide and 12′-70′ long.
Whether you’re a country club manager with outdoor club-level bocce ball courts or a homeowner with a simple backyard bocce court setup, Gappsi has a bocce ball court lighting package for your sports court.
The Number Of Light Poles
If your bocce ball court is about 60 feet long, it may require 3 to 5 light poles along the edge of the court itself. The pole positioning has to be placed evenly to ensure that the lights to be installed would illuminate the same lighting from each other’s end of the court. This would also give ample allowance if in the future you plan to extend the court.
LED Light Pole Height
You have to ensure that the poles are identical to each other’s lengths/heights. The general height requirement for it is about 16 feet. The poles are typically made of wood, but others prefer metal poles. So, it is up to you which one to use as long as they’re the same height and installed properly. The general height requirements give ample lighting when used and it won’t get in the way when tossing the ball when playing.
Why Use LED Lights?
It’s no secret that LED lights are energy and cost-efficient. But, at the same time, it is ideal to use LED lighting for the bocce court in your backyard so you to have the option of the color temperature. Bocce ball is a casual game and lighting is important when you’re playing in the late afternoon or at night. You don’t want bright lights to become a hindrance for a fun game—and too bright lighting would be harmful to the eyes up close—so warm lighting rather than bright sunlight white is more advisable.
LED lights are flicker-free compared to others so it won’t be irritating when they are used.
Bocce Ball Sports Game Courts With Stone Coping Sands Point NY
Gappsi designed and built this Bocce Court for a private residence in Sands Point NY. The sports court was built over a recycled concrete base with a thin layer of blue stone screening. The structure of the wall was built with pressure-treated lumber and faced Azek on the inside and outside of the Bocce Ball Court. The floor for the court is the Gappsi bocce court synthetic turf and the coping on the walls is Indiana limestone. It was the customer’s design choice and selection. In addition, the limestone blends in with the Azek finish on the walls.
An led light system was installed under the coping. The night version is featured in the video. The led lights can be rotated to different colors or stopped on a desired color. This is the latest Gappsi Sports Court Built in Nassau County Long Island NY.
