Outdoor Basketball Court Sports Surfaces
Basketball is a very popular sport in schools, colleges and leisure centres across the UK, this means there is a high demand for top quality outdoor basketball court facilities where the sport can be played. But you don’t have to have a court built just for basketball, you can install a multi use games area where a number of different sports can be played, including netball and tennis.
Specifications For an Outdoor Basketball Court
A modern day outdoor basketball court has standard sizes and dimensions of 28m x 15m but depending on the level or standard of sport that you wish to be played, this can be adapted and changed to suit many sizes of MUGA outdoor basketball courts, depending on budget, costs and size / location. Basketball is a sport that can be played on various types of surfaces but the most common types are asphalt tar macadam and EPDM rubber crumb polymeric / tartan surfaces. These surfaces can all have anti slip sports colour coatings and line markings applied in different colours so a number of different sports can be played on the same surface, including basketball, tennis and netball.
All Weather Sports Surfaces
Both macadam and polymeric surfaces are designed to be porous so they allow rain water to drain through them. All of our all weather MUGA surfaces are porous to allow for good water drainage, preventing flooding and waterlogging which can cause damage to the surface and make it unsafe for people to use. The good drainage characteristics of these sports surfaces mean they can be used in all weather conditions and at all times of the year, this is a great quality especially in schools and colleges.
