Basketball Court Construction

Welch Tennis Courts, Inc. is not only known for being the World’s Largest Builder of clay (Har-Tru) tennis courts, but also builds other sport style courts, including basketball courts. A typical full size (diagram) regulation basketball court measures 104′ long by 60′ wide (this includes a minimum five foot over run area on all sides of the court). Any size court can be constructed to fit your needs, such as half courts.

Typically basketball courts are constructed of a road base and asphalt and coated with an acrylic color coating system. This process is exactly like the construction of an asphalt tennis court. Once the asphalt has been installed, there is a 30 day cure time for the emulsions and polymers to dissipate from the asphalt. This same cure time would also apply to a concrete type of court, tennis or basketball. When the cure time is complete the preparations can begin to the court surface. The court is checked for any low areas (birdbaths) and patched, followed by the application of acrylics to the court surface. If the court is a concrete court there would be additional preparation for the proper adhesion of the acrylics to the concrete surface.
