About Sport Courts

Sport courts, both commercial and residential, include all courts that you play a sport on – tennis, basketball, pickle ball, and so much more.

Each type of court will have its own unique installation process and timeline depending on requirements of the project. Some court can even have multiple uses.

    New Installation Sport Courts

    Here are the basic steps for installing a new sport court:

    1. Site Preparation. Assess the area where the court will be installed to ensure it meets the necessary size and accessibility requirements. Clear the site of any obstructions such as trees, rocks, or debris.
    2. Excavation. Excavate the area to create a level playing surface with a smooth, well-compacted base. The depth of excavation will depend on the type of court and the soil conditions.
    3. Drainage. To prevent water from pooling on the court, an appropriate drainage system should be installed. This usually involves incorporating a slope and installing either standard or French drains around the perimeter.
    4. Sub-base Construction. Build a stable sub-base layer using materials such as crushed stone or gravel to provide a solid foundation for the court and assist drainage.
    5. Court Surface. Apply the desired court surface material – common options are asphalt, concrete, or synthetic turf, each of which has its own installation process.
    6. Markings. Once the court surface is in place, mark the playing lines and other necessary markings using paint or tape. These can include boundary lines, center lines, and other specific markings as per the sport’s regulations.
    7. Net, Posts, Goals, etc. Install necessary nets, posts, goals, poles, baskets, or other required equipment according to the desired sport. Ensure the installed equipment complies with official sport rules.
    8. Fencing and Accessories. Install fencing around the court perimeter to enclose the playing area. Consider adding other accessories such as wind screens, lighting, and seating if desired.
    9. Finishing Touches. Inspect the court for any irregularities, such as bumps or cracks, and make necessary repairs. Clean the surface and remove any debris.

    It’s important to note that the specific installation process can vary depending on factors such as court type, location, local regulations, and personal preferences. Consulting with a professional sport court contractor is recommended to ensure the installation is done correctly and meets the necessary standards. Here at Macadam Construction, our team is highly experienced in sport court installation and will be able to assist with all of your needs.

    Existing Court Conversion

    Do you have an existing court that you would like to convert to use for a different sport? No problem! Here are some common sport conversions:

    1. Tennis courts can often be converted into:
      • Pickleball. The dimensions of a pickleball court are smaller than a tennis court, so several pickleball courts can fit within a single tennis court.
      • Basketball. Tennis courts can be converted into basketball courts by removing the tennis net, adding basketball hoops, and marking the appropriate lines for basketball.
      • Volleyball. By placing a volleyball net in the center of a tennis court and marking the boundaries, you can create a volleyball court. However, note that the surface of a tennis court may be harder than ideal for volleyball, so modifications may be necessary.
    2. Basketball courts can generally be transformed into:
      • Futsal. Futsal is a variant of soccer played on a hard court surface. By adding goals and marking the appropriate lines, a basketball court can be converted into a futsal court.
      • Volleyball. Similarly, a basketball court can be used for volleyball by adding a net and marking the boundaries.
      • Multipurpose. Some sports courts are designed to accommodate multiple sports and can be easily converted for various uses. These courts often have markings for different sports, making them versatile for different activities. Examples include:
        • Multi-Sport Courts. These courts are typically designed to accommodate sports like basketball, tennis, volleyball, and more. They may have adjustable nets or markings for different sports.
        • Sport Courts. These are modular sport surfaces that can be customized to accommodate various sports. They offer flexibility in converting between sports like basketball, tennis, roller hockey, and more.

    It’s important to consider the specific dimensions and markings of a court, as well as any local regulations or requirements, when converting a sports court for another use. Our sport court experts at Macadam Construction will ensure your conversion is completed safely and properly.
