Home Basketball Court Checklist

Court sub-base

A precision finished reinforced concrete sub-structure provides the best base for optimum ball response.

Basketball Court Surface

Bare concrete can be brutal so consider adding modular outdoor basketball court flooring.

Basketball Hoop System

Height adjustable, in-ground basketball hoops are the way to go for pro grade basketball courts.

Basketball Court Lighting

To extend play into the night you’ll need a basketball court lighting solution.


Hoop swag is optional, but basketball is better with beats.


Backyard Basketball Court Sub-Base

Consistent and true ball response is critical to achieve the best basketball playing surface. Ensuring sub-structures are finished within a flatness tolerance of 3mm in any 3m radius, guarantees the best performance from polymeric surfaces such as Traction tiles.

The job of installing a precision finished sub-structure can be completed by an approved OnCourt sub-base installer or we can supply technical specification for self-build projects.

Outdoor Home Basketball Court Surface

Outdoor basketball court surface options include tarmac and concrete courts. Both can be enhanced immeasurably by the addition of a modular sports tile surface. Versacourt Game Outdoor tiles are the best possible outdoor basketball surface, designed to mimic the ball response of an indoor spring-loaded gym.
