If you’ve been weighing the pros and cons of a multipurpose court construction or a single sports court, then this article is for you. Based on our experience, here are a few of the biggest reasons to consider going with a multipurpose court.
Accommodating different group sizes
Whether you have half a dozen guests over or just one or two friends, with multiple games possible to play conveniently in your backyard, you’ll have no problems entertaining them.
It’s far better to have all the anchors built into the foundation
Each sport that’s included in your multi-purpose court will have its own structural needs. Basketball requires a hoop net with a backboard, and tennis utilizes a long net that goes across. It’s also recommended to have a fence installed around the perimeter for tennis so that you’re not chasing the ball constantly. These accessories need to be firmly connected to the ground, which is typically done by installing posts and anchors during the initial construction process. Modifying the court afterward for additional sports is very time-consuming and costly, so we suggest making plans for multi-purpose space in the beginning, even if you’re not sure.
Reduced risk of sports-related injuries
Individuals who play a diverse number of sports are less likely to suffer from injuries caused by the over-use of specific muscles. Some of the most common sports injuries happen because the muscle group hasn’t been given enough rest. Possibly, little effort was made to get enough variety of physical activity, which would ensure that all the muscles in the body are being strengthened at relatively the same pace.
Hopefully, this information has helped you put some thought into whether a multi-purpose court construction is right for you. If you have any further questions, give us a call, or stop by!
