Pickleball Court Conversion and Construction
Adding or converting Pickleball court lines and posts is a new great and fun way to get a lot more out of just having a standard tennis courts. Here are Sport Surfaces we can either add a pickleball court to an existing tennis court or convert the court to be exclusively used for pickleball. Note: when a tennis court is used exclusively for tennis we can add (2) pickleball courts for each tennis court.
Pickleball Court Specifications
When we are just adding pickleball court lines to a tennis court we usually try and use line colors which are in the same color tone but are either darker or lighter than the tennis court playing surface. We find that this allows pickleball players to differentiate the tennis lines while giving the courts a good appearance.getting confused and allowing tennis players to continue to enjoy tennis with little or no interference from the pickleball lines.
- The court dimension is 20 feet wide x 44 feet long for both singles and doubles matches.
- A total playing area 30 feet wide x 60 feet long. Note: this is a minimum size. Most players prefer to have a standard size of 34’ x 64’.
- Lines size should be 2” (same width as tennis court lines) and it is recommended to have a contrasting color in the same color family that is currently on the playing surface of the tennis court. We have found that too great of a contrast leads to confusion for tennis players.
