What is a Sport Court?

A Sport Court is an outdoor games area consisting of the following components:

A flat, hard Sub-Base (usually a concrete slab). The Sub-Base is required for the PowerGame+ modular tile surface to be placed on.
J-bolt anchors and/or ground sleeves for Mega Slam Hoop systems or Sport Court Game Poles. These are encased in concrete padstones installed in the ground, usually within the court perimeter.
Your court components including the PowerGame+ court surface, Mega Slam Hoops, Game Lights, Multi-Sport Net System and Futsal Goals.

All Sport Courts can be easily configured to accommodate Basketball, Futsal, Racket Sports and more, without compromising on gameplay or safety. PowerGame+ modular sports tiles provide exceptional protection against abrasion, head injuries and joint strain. Extensive third-party testing ensures that athletes of any age remain safe while playing and competing on Sport Court PowerGame+ surfaces.
PowerGame+ sports flooring is used at the highest levels of competition by leading sports federations around the world. Perfect for residential projects, temporary events and permanent commercial installations.

Configure a court for your garden or business in the 3D Court Builder.

What size is a home Sport Court?

Residential courts vary in size depending on sports and space. Basketball can be enjoyed in a relatively small space with the key court measuring just 6.4 x 9.5m. To enjoy racket sports or volleyball, you'll obviously want more space. Most sports can be enjoyed on a reduced scale as demonstrated by the popularity of 3x3 basketball, touch tennis and other compact variants of popular full-scale sports. 

Sport Court offer PowerGame+ court schemes of all shapes and sizes from the small key basketball court to massive international competition futsal courts at 40x25m.

Where should I build a Sport Court in my garden?

If possible, we recommend orienting your court from north to south (top court to court baseline) to prevent sun glare during play. If that’s not possible, you can  introduce a planting scheme around the court to screen direct sun-light.

How long does it take to build a home Sport Court?

A standard, mid-range court project will take approximately 4 weeks from commencement to completion. An Approved Sport Court Installer will be with you for approximately 1 week to install the sub-base. The sub-base is then allowed to “cure” for at least one full week, before the installation team arrives to install your court surface, hoop system and components.

Do I need planning permission for a Sport Court?

In most cases a Sport Court does not require planning permission and can be installed under permitted development rights, your right to carry out certain forms of development within the curtilage of your house without needing to make a planning application.
Different rules apply over your front garden but elsewhere within the curtilage of your house there are no restrictions on the area of land which you can cover with hard surfaces at, or near, ground level. Furthermore, our Basketball hoops are not permanent structures since they are bolted down on to the court Sub-Base and can be moved if necessary.
The circumstances for each property can differ and you will need to satisfy yourself that you have the necessary consents in place, but as a general guide if you meet the following criteria you are unlikely to need planning permission for one of our courts.

Planning permission not normally required:
The court is used as part of your enjoyment of your house.
The court will be in the residential curtilage (generally garden area) of your house.
The court would be located behind the principal (front) elevation of the house, i.e. to the side or rear of your house.
Planning permission will be required:
The court is not for personal use as part of your enjoyment of your house, i.e. is for commercial purposes.
The court would be located outside the residential curtilage, on a paddock or adjacent field for example where the classification of land may differ from that of your garden.
The court is built in the garden of anything other than a house. Converted houses, apartments, or houses created through the permitted development rights to change use do not enjoy this permitted development right.
If you require the installation of permanent fencing, netting or walls more than 2m high, or fronting a highway.
Areas where there may be a planning condition, Article 4 Direction or other restriction that limits permitted development rights.
Any element of the court would be attached to a listed building or structure within the grounds of a listed building.
If any significant engineering works are required to support the court sub-grade (e.g. embanking, retaining walls or terracing).

A word of caution – If you have trees near the court that are protected by a Tree Preservation Order then consent may be needed from your local Council. This may also apply to trees within a Conservation Area that could be affected by the court Sub-Base installation.

For any further planning advice or assistance with planning applications or advice on establishing the lawfulness of your court installation then we recommend speaking to our independent planning consultant based in Hampshire. Please contact Alex Munday at: info@hampshireplanningconsultants.co.uk

What is a Sub-Base?

Your court Sub-Base is a minimum 100mm (4” thick), reinforced concrete slab on which PowerGame+ sports surface is installed. Within the concrete slab, we install bolt anchors and ground sleeves encased in concrete padstones that are used to secure your court components above ground. When installed correctly, concrete slabs are extremely durable and provide a dense, responsive sub-structure beneath the court tile. Concrete has a 30+ year life expectancy and requires very little maintenance.

If you select our Fully-Managed Installation option, then we’ll install a slab using a C32/40 pump mix composition. This is to ensure the concrete is sufficiently strong enough to withstand the weight and tension of our premium american style Basketball Hoop Systems from Mega Slam Hoops.

Can I use an existing hard-stand area as my Sub-Base?

Many of the courts that we sell can be installed on existing concrete slabs, driveways or other surfaces. It is important to ensure the area in question complies with our recommended flatness tolerance of 3mm in any 3 metre radius of the court. In some cases, subsurface preparation is required. We recommend applying outdoor self-levelling compounds to poorly finished concrete slabs. In every case, it is important to consider the following key issues:

Court surfaces should not be installed on Grass or structural cracks wider than 12.5mm.
Sharp cracks and/or “snots” should be faceted or rounded to ensure full contact between the court tile and Sub-Base. This will ensure ball bounce is consistent and that tiles will not catch when the court tiles expand and contract.
Court tiles expand and contract slightly with temperature changes so we advise specifying a court (including edging components) that is at least 100mm shorter in width and length than the total base area you have available for the court.
We also recommend trimming court tiles at least 100mm from any obstructions within the court area including Basketball goal posts, fencing posts and Game Poles.

If an existing subsurface does not exist, we recommend installing a concrete Sub-Base due to its density, durability and longevity. However, other subsurface options may be considered. Please speak to a member of our team on 01962 809206.
