Sport Court is typically less expensive than even basic suspended wood systems, and competes well against most other synthetic alternatives. From a life-cycle cost perspective, low maintenance costs and long-term durability make Sport Court the smart budget choice.

Minimal Maintenance Required

Sport Court modular surfaces are easily and inexpensively maintained compared to most other sports surfaces. Regular dust-mopping, and intermittent deeper cleaning with a mop or auto-scrubber are typically all that is required.

Easy to Repair

Sport Court products are durable and of the highest quality, but sometimes damage does occur. Unlike other surfaces, Sport Court floors are easily repaired by popping out the damaged tiles and replacing with new ones.

Quick and Easy Installation

Whether for new construction of retrofit, Sport Court flooring can typically be installed, striped, and ready for play in less than a week.

15 Year Warranty

Ball response is one of the performance characteristics governed and measured in the DIN standards, which are the acknowledged metrics for basketball floors. DIN-certified basketball floors must deliver at least 90% ball response, and Sport Court modular surfaces typically range between 93% – 100% ball response values.

The polypropylene used in our modules is impervious to water damage.

Sports Flooring – Frequently Asked Questions

1. Does Sport Court flooring require a climate-controlled building?

2. How do Sport Court floors compare cost-wise to other alternatives?
Sport Court modular flooring provides durability and multi-sport playability at an affordable price. Sport Court is typically less expensive than even basic suspended wood systems, and competes well against most other synthetic alternatives. From a life-cycle cost perspective, low maintenance costs and long-term durability make Sport Court the smart budget choice.

3. How is Sport Court flooring affected by moisture?
Unlike wood and most synthetic floors, Sport Court’s modular systems are virtually unaffected by water, whether in vapor form emitting from concrete slabs or sub-surface, or even (in most circumstances) in case of flood or submersion. Many Sport Court floors have been used to retrofit other systems damaged by flooding (and where the possibility of future floods exist). The polypropylene used in our modules is impervious to water damage.

4. Does Sport Court use any hazardous chemicals or materials in its manufacturing processes or installation?
No. Sport Court products meet all safety standards and contain no hazardous chemicals. Some paint and coatings require ventilation during application, but leave no harmful residues or compounds behind. In fact, Sport Court is the only ISO 14001 sports flooring manufacture in the United States—the international standard for environmental controls.

5. What colors do you offer?
Sport Court modular sports floors can be produced in almost any color you desire. In addition to our standard palette of over 20 stock colors, we can also design to your color specifications, to match school or other desired color schemes. In addition, we can create unique logos and other designs to personalize your floor, or utilize different-colored sections to help you establish your activity schemes and teaching curriculum.

6. What makes Sport Court flooring different from others?
There are many available options when it comes to indoor flooring, but few offer the versatility and multi-purpose applications of Sport Court. We have a few competitors in the modular field, but the most they can claim is that ‘they’re like Sport Court’—no one else has the history of pioneering and creating unique, playable, and safe surfaces for sports. And compared to wood and other synthetic sports floors, no other product delivers more for less, or can be used in as wide a variety of applications.

7. How long does it take to install a floor?
Whether for new construction of retrofit, Sport Court flooring can typically be installed, striped, and ready for play in less than a week.

8. How long will a Sport Court floor last?
Sport Court modular sports floors are covered by a 15-year limited warranty, and we expect them to deliver playability, safety and durability for at least that long.

9. Does Sport Court flooring provide any safety benefits?
Sport Court modular floors are among the safest in the world. Our patented Lateral Forgiveness™ provides protection against the stresses on limbs and joints, and we can adjust the shock absorption values to almost any level desired.

10. How well does the ball bounce compared to other basketball floors?
Ball response is one of the performance characteristics governed and measured in the DIN standards, which are the acknowledged metrics for basketball floors. DIN-certified basketball floors must deliver at least 90% ball response, and Sport Court modular surfaces typically range between 93% – 100% ball response values.

11. How does maintenance compare with other sports floors?
Sport Court modular surfaces are easily and inexpensively maintained compared to most other sports surfaces. Regular dust-mopping, and intermittent deeper cleaning with a mop or auto-scrubber are typically all that is required. Our High-Gloss™ floors, with a durable polyurethane coating, can be field-maintained every three years by your Sport Court Dealer, typically requiring one day of application and 3 – 4 days before active play.

12. Why do you call Sport Court floors ‘multi-purpose’ sports surfaces?
Most sports surfaces have limitations. Wood floors require costly field renovation and maintenance at least annually and can be easily damaged by water. Most synthetic surfaces must be glued down and can delaminate or be affected by ground water or vapor emission. Sport Court modular surfaces can be used for almost any activity, in almost any type of facility, whether climate-controlled or not. They are durable and resistant to damage, but their modular nature makes repairs simple and quick when necessary. For facilities watching their maintenance budgets, Sport Court provides a safe and playable surface with some of the lowest life-cycle costs in the industry.

13. Why are some of the other modular products cheaper?
Sport Court was the pioneer in the industry of modular sports flooring, with nearly 40 years of experience. Some companies with injection-molding capabilities have jumped into the business, thinking that they only need to copy a basic module design to create a sports floor. However, not only do they lack our manufacturing expertise and discipline—Sport Court is the only ISO-certified modular surface manufacturer in the world—most of them fail to understand even the most basic concepts of safety, performance design, and applicability for sports. They can make plastic tiles, but the creation of a safe, durable performance floor is beyond their capability. As with most products, you get what you pay for.

Residential – Frequently Askeed Questions

1. How much room do I need to fit a Sport Court game court in my yard?
Sport Court game courts are custom-designed to fit not only the available space in your yard, but your family’s lifestyle, interests, and sports activities. So the answer is—we can build a court of almost any size or configuration, and our network of court builders is the world’s largest and most experienced, with over 100,000 projects completed. Why would you trust anyone else to build your family’s dream court?

2. What is the time frame to install a game court?
Depending on the size and scope of your court, your Sport Court representative can have you ‘ready to play’ in a matter of days. Of course, site preparation, concrete placement, and busy schedules—both for your court builder and your family—can require a little more time and planning. On average, count on about 4 – 6 weeks from the first time you meet with your Dealer until you’re shooting hoops or playing tennis with your kids.

3. Are there court accessories available for purchase?
Sport Court game courts feature the widest variety and highest quality of components, accessories and equipment. Depending on your family’s interests, these could include our SlamSystem hoops packages, with professional-style tempered glass backboards, lighting systems for night-time play, nets and racquets for tennis, badminton and other sports—virtually everything you would need for years of enjoyment and time together on your court.

4. May I pick more than one color for my game court?
We hope you will! Sport Court game courts offer an almost unlimited number of color options and combinations. Whether it’s your school colors, or just a scheme that will fit your house, yard, or neighborhood, you set the design, and we build the court!

5. Do you offer custom designs on game courts?
Check out our photo galleries for ideas—we’ve done literally tens of thousands of courts, and you can either choose from one of the beautiful designs we’ve done, or sit down and create your own unique look with your Dealer. And for a truly professional finish, we can create special logos of your alma mater, favorite team, or family crest, right on the surface of your court. There will be no question whose court your friends and neighbors are playing on!

6. If the sports surfacing becomes damaged, how difficult is it to replace?
Nothing simpler! Since Sport Court game courts are constructed of durable polypropylene modules, the chance of any damage is slim, but in the event one or two modules need to be replaced, your court builder can quickly and easily fix the problem.

7. How expensive is a game court?
Sport Court game courts are a world-class investment in your family’s property, health and lifestyle, but can be built to almost any budget or specification. Because the typical court includes concrete or asphalt placement, our patented sports surface delivering safety and performance, and the highest-quality components, prices start at $15,000 – $20,000 and up, depending on the size, scope and features of your personalized court.

8. How do I maintain my Sport Court game court?
Maintenance and care of your Sport Court game court is simple. A broom, blower, or hose can be used to keep the top surface free of debris, and since water drains quickly through the open grid, your court is ready for play soon after cleaning or inclement weather. We recommend that you have your Sport Court Dealer conduct an annual inspection and cleaning, check and greases components, replace nets and balls if necessary, and power-wash the sub-surface.

9. How long has Sport Court been in business?
Sport Court has been building quality game courts and backyard recreational facilities since 1974. No other company has done it longer, or built more courts—we are the World’s Largest Courtbuilder—and that expertise and experience ensures that your court will be built with the skill and care it deserves.

10. Why is the Sport Court surface important? Can’t I just play on painted concrete?
Many of us grew up playing on a backyard concrete or asphalt slab—and some of us have the scars to prove it! The bottom line here is the safety of your children, and there is no outdoor sports surface that delivers a better combination of shock absorption (protection from injury), ball response, traction and playability than our PowerGame outdoor modular flooring. There are other choices available, but why would you trust the safety of your children to an inferior surface?

11. In what ways are you better than other companies selling the same products?
With almost any purchase you make, you have choices and alternatives, and there are a few other companies who build outdoor courts. Most of them claim to be ‘just as good as Sport Court’ and some will sell inferior products at lower prices. Sport Court is the original brand, with the world’s largest network of experienced courtbuilders. A game court is an important investment in your family’s health and togetherness—does it make sense to invest in something less than the best for your family?

12. How long will a game court last?
Sport Court game courts are constructed of the highest-quality and most durable materials. Your Sport Court surfacing is covered by a 15-year limited warranty, and we expect it to deliver at least that many years of playability and fun for your family.

13. Is the surface slippery when wet?
Almost any surface—whether grass, artificial turf, or even concrete or asphalt—can be slippery when wet. We don’t recommend active play on any wet surface, until the athlete has had the opportunity to test the surface and adjust his or her play accordingly. Fortunately, Sport Court’s open-grid design sheds water quickly, making it possible to return to action much sooner than with other surfaces, once the weather subsides.

14. Do I need a permit to build a backyard court?
In some communities, you may be required to get certain permits before building your backyard game court. Your Sport Court Dealer may have experience in working with your municipality or neighborhood, and can help you navigate the required regulations. There may be some restrictions on size, proximity to your property line, drainage, fencing, or lights, but you and your Dealer can work together to manage those requirements.
