What Size are Home Basketball Courts?

Home Basketball court dimensions can vary according to available space. From small free-throw shooting courts to giant full size installations, court sizes can be compared in the 3D Basketball Court Configurator. Garden basketball court sizes start with the free throw court, stepping up through 3×3 inspired half courts and full courts from 17 x 24 m.

The Importance Of A Flat, Level 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 a self-build project, to be completed by you or your preferred contractor.
Fully Managed Court Installations begin by booking a site survey after configuring your court.

Outdoor Basketball Court Surfaces

Outdoor basketball court surface options include tarmac and concrete courts. Both can be enhanced immeasurably by the addition of a polymeric modular sports tile surface. OnCourt’s Traction² tiles are the best possible outdoor sports surface, designed to mimic the ball response of an indoor spring-loaded gym. You can order a sample pack of Traction² sports tiles, featuring printed game lines and unique anti-slip traction coating.
