DIY Versacourt Modular Basketball Court Surface Installation
Before you begin installing the court surface, review your packing slip and verify everything is included and has not been damaged in transit. Review the numbered court layout document and check your sub-base is ready for tile installation. Move the pallet close to the court, remove wrapping and you’re ready to begin…
The easiest way to install the tile surface is to start in one corner with the hook end of the tiles facing to the right and down; or in other words pointing towards the corner. Locate Panel #1 on your diagram and find panel #1 of your tiles and position into place.
Locate Panel #2 and lay into place, continuing in numerical order moving across your diagram until all panels are in place.
Step back and visually inspect to ensure your sections are in their proper place. Make sure the basketball lane lines up with your goal, as well with any tennis lines, logos and other lines matching your diagram, etc.
Lock your tiles together. Starting with #1 and move across your court in the same order you laid the tiles down. By gently stepping on the seams, starting at one corner, the hook ends are pressed into the receiver end for a strong hold.
Install your ramps and corner pieces. You will have 2 types of ramps, a hook and a receiver, and 4 corner pieces.
Play ball on your newly installed court surface!
