MultiSports Game Courts For Pickleball And Tennis

MultiSports-Game-Courts-For-Pickleball-And-Tennis1

MultiSports Game Courts For Pickleball and Tennis in the backyard are a great way to optimize space in your driveway, on your property, or playground. With the growing popularity of Pickleball, there has been a demand for smaller courts and combination courts to accommodate players. In areas where the interest in Pickleball exceeds tennis, blended lines are added in another color so that the courts can be used for both sports.

Pickleball has become one of the fastest-growing sports in the nation. The demand for places to play Pickleball leads to the question, “Can Pickleball be played on a tennis court?”

Yes, Pickleball can be played on a tennis court surface, and we will discuss some great options to keep Tennis and Pickleball players happy.

Pickleball Lines Blended With Tennis Court Lines

A common option, that is working well, is to maximize the current “real estate” of existing tennis courts. That is usually a “win-win” and has been done for years with tennis and basketball court combinations. By USTA and ITF rules, tennis court lines must be white. Pickleball court lines can be added in a different color so that tennis or pickleball can be played on the same court (at different times, of course) and the eye can focus on the applicable set of playing lines.

**The USTA’s children’s tennis program known as 10 & under tennis recommends painting the Pickleball lines in the same color family as the court surface color. For example, if the court base color is blue, apply Pickleball lines in a shade of blue that is lighter or darker than the surface color. This makes the lines less distracting to tennis players.

What Is a Custom MultiSports Game Courts?

When it comes to active sports, most games require a large area of land e.g., tennis or soccer. Then it may also be challenging when different family members have different sports preferences.

That’s where multisports game courts come to your rescue.

Multisports game courts have a customized design that caters to all your favorite sports. And it is only a quarter the size of a standard tennis court. An average multi-game court is about 30’ x 60’ or 1,800 sq. ft. You can alter the multi-game court dimensions based on your requirements.

How Is It Beneficial?

Customized multisports game courts create more efficient use of space and land. When you have a limited budget, multi-purpose sporting courts are an economical solution.

Custom multi-game courts can accommodate up to 8 games. These include games like:

  • giant chess
  • badminton
  • basketball
  • shuffleboard
  • bocce ball
  • giant pool
  • tetherball
  • batting cage
  • putting green

Various combinations of these can be incorporated depending on your preference and the size of the court. Most court dimensions range from 18′ x 18′ to 56′ x 104′.

Further, these courts allow you to play different sports depending on the season. For instance, you can practice hockey on an outdoor court in January. So instead of building separate areas for the different games, you can simply take down the nets and play hockey on your tennis courts. Or add a couple of all-pro-hoops to your court for basketball games. This way, you can save land, money, and tonnes of expenses in maintenance.

Home Pickleball Sports Game Courts Are The New Backyard Swimming Pool

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.

Building a court from scratch is not simple, but a sports 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.

Home-Pickleball-Sports-Game-CourtsPickleball Construction

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.

Pickleball Courts With Painted Asphalt

Pickleball-Courts-With-Painted-Asphalt2Pickleball Courts With Painted Asphalt or Concrete both provide an acceptable base for the courts. Make sure to review surfacing requirements before having the base installed, as there are recommended specifications for slope, drainage, surface finish, and overall construction.

A better court equals better and safer play. These guidelines are based on collected feedback from fellow members of the pickleball community, and while your situation may differ, we offer these as a starting point for those looking to get the most out of their court and their game.

We can provide you with free estimates for Pickleball court construction & resurfacing throughout Long Island New York. Pickleball has been around for quite a few years but has recently become one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. Backyard pickleball courts are a great investment for families and friends to enjoy and have a much smaller footprint than tennis courts. Contact us today and we can perform a site visit to see if a backyard pickleball court can be built within your available space.

Do You Have A Pickleball Court And Need Resurfacing?

The process of surfacing a pickleball court varies, and may include the application of a resurfacing material and/or a cushioned material, in addition to paint for color and texture and line-striping the court boundaries. Some jobs, such as repurposing tennis courts for pickleball, may only require line-striping.

Pickleball court resurfacing should be done every 4 to 8 years, depending on a variety of factors. Overall traffic, or usage, of the sports game courts, is the main factor. However, proper construction, slope, and drainage of the pickleball courts are also very important to the longevity of the slab and pickleball court surfaces. Gappsi is experienced in resurfacing larger Pickleball court facilities with multiple courts. These are ideal for tournaments, leagues, or park systems with a large demand for pickleball. Converting tennis or basketball courts to pickleball courts is also an option if there is more demand for pickleball courts. However, we recommend adding blended lines in another color to existing courts and keeping the existing sports lines. This way you make the most of your real estate and can play all sports in the same area.

Pickleball-Courts-With-Painted-Asphalt-&-Basketball-CourtsSurface Preparation Is Key To Successful Resurfacing

The pavement surface must be cleaned entirely of dust, dirt, and debris. Repair of pavement surface defects, depressions, and cracks should be completed prior to application. All repairs must be flush and smooth to adjoining surfaces for best results. New asphalt must cure 30 days and new concrete must cure 28 days prior to application. It is recommended that any uncoated/bare surface receive one or more coats of TCS Court Resurfacer as required by surface roughness and porosity to provide a smooth, dense underlayment for the application of color coatings. Concrete surfaces should have a light broom finish or a similar roughened texture.

Interested In Cushioned Pickleball Court Surfaces?

We can also install cushioned pickleball court surfaces. You can have a premium, softer playing surface for reducing shock on the joints and body. The system consists of multiple coats of rubber-filled acrylic coatings to produce cushioned padding beneath the colored surfaces.

The acrylic resurfacer is important for courts that intend to add a cushion layer. Without the resurfacing acrylic, the rubber wants to pile up instead of grabbing onto the texture below, and the rubber in the cushion product will fill the voids so the surface won’t feel as cushioned.

Cushioned pickleball courts are created by applying multiple layers of acrylic with small rubber granules using a soft rubber squeegee. To ensure even application, we recommend pouring out the cushion product in relatively small amounts, to prevent piles of rubber at the end of the squeegee pull. After spreading the cushion acrylic, Gappsi recommends being gentle while scraping any high spots.

You Do Not Have A PickleBall Court – Plan Your Sports Game Courts

If you are constructing a pickleball court from start to finish, one of the first considerations will be the size and layout of the court.
Pickleball courts measure 44 feet long and 20 feet wide, including the court’s boundary lines. The USAPA Rule Book recommends a minimum total playing surface of 30 by 60 feet, though 34 by 64 feet is preferred. Anytime multiple courts will be in close proximity, fencing between the courts is important to protect players on other courts.

Just as with other sports courts, it is ideal to orient the court north-south to limit the sun obstructing players’ vision and the impact of shadows on the court surface.

Coloring The PickleBall Sports Game Courts

The color coating USAPA recommends 100 percent acrylic paint for outdoor courts.  The color is typically applied with a minimum of two coats. Pickleball courts are smaller and are often used for doubles so there’s more wear because the players are always scuffing the same little boxes. It may be worth adding an extra coat to extend the life of the surface.

Although tennis courts tend to be painted blue or green, the USAPA says pickleball courts can be painted any color as long as it contrasts with the lines of the court.

You want to choose a color that contrasts with the color of the pickleballs.  Pickleballs are most often yellow, orange, or lime green. Generally, colors opposite from each other improve contrast. For example, if the balls are yellow, paint the court blue.
