Outdoor courts are a very good investment for both property values and health. Most people can find enough room for at least a half basket ball court on their property. The most common and cost effective surface for basketball and game courts is asphalt or concrete with acrylic surfacing.

Acrylic sport surfaces are used on tennis courts and all kinds of recreational areas in parks, playgrounds, and residential properties. There is a variety of options to research when considering what sport surface will work best for you and fall within your price range. Some of these choices include:

• Substrate: Asphalt or Concrete

• Color Choices

• Preferred Textures (smooth or rough)

• Hard or Cushioned Acrylic Surfacing

• Types of Activity on Court Surface (just basketball or skateboards, vehicles, etc.)

Most manufactures have many color choices from bright and vibrant to dark, earth tone colors. Some manufacturers have color choices that qualify for environmental programs, like LEED, and reflect the sun’s rays to provide a cooler playing surface and surrounding ambient temperature. Basketball can be hard on the body. Continually running, jumping, and landing on a hard surface like concrete or asphalt can result in sore and swollen joints. Knee, ankle, and back injuries are commonly associated with sports like basketball. Many acrylic sport systems have premium options that add layers of cushion beneath the color coatings. These layers are flexible, acrylic coatings that contain various sizes of granulated rubber particles. Each additional rubberized coat adds to the resilience and shock absorption of the system. The average installed cost of a cushioned basketball court surface ranges from $2.00 to $3.00 dollars per square foot. In comparison, the average installed cost of an acrylic basketball surface without cushion would be $.45 to $.70 cents per square foot.

Acrylic sport surfaces for basketball require very little maintenance. Basic cleaning with a blower and broom to keep the surface free of debris should be performed as needed. This will extend the life of the coatings by removing any abrasive particles that can act like sandpaper under the feet of players on the court surface. Outdoor basketball courts often benefit from rain showers that aid in rinsing any spills or other organic, rotting materials away. However, occasional pressure washing is recommended to prevent growth of mold or other organisms that feed off of surface contaminants. When using a pressure washer, make sure to keep the pressure setting under 70 pounds per square inch. Setting the pressure any higher may damage the surface coatings. If there are visible stains on the acrylic basketball surface, a mild detergent can be used with water and a soft-bristled brush to remove them.

If you are interested in having your own outdoor basketball court and would like to get an estimate from a sport surfacing contractor, it is recommended that you contact a manufacturer of acrylic basketball surfaces. They can help you locate a qualified installer that can handle all phases, from basketball court construction to resurfacing and striping.
