Home Pickleball Sports Game Courts Are The New Backyard Swimming Pool! Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in America and is close to being the fastest-growing sport in the world. However, to play the sport you NEED the court. Our team at Gappsi has retrofitted former tennis courts into new pickleball courts via our court resurfacing and painting. We have enhanced basketball courts into multipurpose sports game courts by adding pickleball striping.
The simple but exciting game can be played by people of all ages, making it a sport for everyone. If there is enough space on the property, get the most out of it by having a pickleball court to spend some fun and playtime with friends and family. Building a court from scratch is not simple, but a sports game court construction company like Gappsi will be more than happy to assist.
Pickleball Sports Game Courts Surfaces
Pickleball borrows a lot from tennis. Thus, it’s no surprise that a pickleball court surface is similar to a tennis court surface. As with tennis courts, pickleball courts are often made from either concrete or asphalt. Texturing is done using non-aggressive, round silica sand to provide a slip-free surface when playing.
Since pickleball is easy to play, you may think pickleball court construction is as easy as pouring a driveway. However, there are several considerations to keep in mind, including the size of the court, slope surface, drainage, and surface texture. Thus, it’s a good idea to hire a professional pickleball court installer to do the job for you.
Pickleball courts are similar to doubles badminton courts (20 x 44 feet). Similarly, the net height is 34″ in the middle and 36″ at the sidelines. They are striped like tennis courts with left and right service courts and a non-volley area in front of the net.
If multiple courts are nearby, fencing is essential to protect those playing on other courts. The American Sports Builders Association recommends orienting your pickleball court north-south to ensure the sun or shadows on the court surface don’t obstruct the player’s vision.
Before pickleball court construction begins, check the area for low spots and cracks. Level or fill these deficiencies before proceeding. The courts should have a slope for drainage. Standing water can weaken the playing surface or force players to wait longer after it rains to play. If applying an acrylic finish, make sure the underlying asphalt or concrete surface is dry and clean before the finish adheres.
Sports Game Courts Dimensions
A typical pickleball court is 20 feet wide by 44 feet long. The width of the court is split into two 10-foot sections: the right and left service areas. The length is split into two 22-foot sections on either side of the net. The 22-foot sections are then each split into 7 feet of non-volley space and 15 feet of the service area.
Pickleball Sports Game Courts Nets
A typical net on a pickleball court is 36 inches tall (with a center height of 34 inches) and covers the width of the court at 20 feet long. You don’t need any sort of fancy permanent net taking up space in your driveway or basement; a portable net is a great alternative. Plenty of net options will work for either indoor or outdoor play, but you can also go with a sturdier net to withstand wind or other outdoor conditions, or a simpler net for indoor games.
Asphalt is the preferred foundation for pickleball courts in New York due to our varying climates. Concrete is too brittle to withstand the constant heating and cooling that come with each season. Concrete court surfaces are much harder on the feet and legs of players as well. The texture of asphalt also ensures excellent adhesion for the color coating and sealants applied.

We build our courts with 4 different systems that will offer everyone the perfect choice for their family. At Gappsi we offer both hard courts and soft courts, asphalt courts, concrete courts, and hybrid courts.
Sports Game Courts Lighting & Fencing For Night Time Play
Consider this step if you wish to play at night. The standard protocol is to install two 1500-watt light poles near the court’s center.
Fencing is essential when building multiple courts. It promotes safe playing and viewing and prevents the ball from getting out of the playing area. Rust-resistant wire materials are more popular, and the preferred height ranges from 4 feet to 10 feet.
Asphalt Pickleball Sports Game Courts In Quogue NY
Gappsi installed an asphalt Pickball Sport Game Court in Quogue NY. The sport game court was constructed with an asphalt base. The asphalt was then primed and painted with asphalt paint. Our team then stripped the court with white lines and used two tones of green to paint the court. The lighter green for the outside perimeter and a darker green within the regulations lines of the court. In addition, the Gappsi team installed a 6 feet tall black chain link fence and outbound netting to keep the ball within the playing area. The clients are very happy and make lots of use of their Pickleball Sports Game Courts. Another sport game court was built by Gappsi on Long Island.
