Concrete is a great solution for your basketball court construction project in areas with limited space and accessibility. The benefits of a concrete court are:

  • It is an easier installation than other court surfaces
  • Most economical court surface choice
  • Weather resistant to both hot and cold climates
  • Has a longer lifespan,
  • Low maintenance


Our team uses a special cementitious acrylic product and a vapor barrier during installation. This process ensures that paint will adhere well, and the court will maintain its durability.

Typical basketball court dimensions are approximately 50’x 94’. Please note: Court must have a minimum of 1% slope on the concrete slab to guarantee water removal.
