Pickleball 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 pickleball courts. A pickleball court should measure (diagram) at least 30′ wide by 60′ long, the preferred size is 34′ wide by 64′ long.

Typically pickleball 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 pickleball. 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.
