An emerging and highly popular game right now is pickleball. Many schools, clubs, and recreation centers are riding the trend of setting up contemporary pickleball courts. But not everyone has basic knowledge regarding the steps that go into pickleball court construction. Here is a brief miniguide:
1. Gauge Right Pickleball Court Construction Space
Outdoor pickleball court construction requires adequate space, using the correct dimensions of net height and playing area. For example:
- The standard field for singles and doubles pickleball games measures approximately 20 feet (6.1 meters) by 44 feet (13.41 meters).
- The standard pickleball net height measures 30 feet (9.14 meters) by 60 feet (18.29 meters), especially if you convert a tennis court into a pickleball court.
- A standalone outdoor pickleball court or tournament play area measures approximately 34 feet by 64 feet (19.51 meters).
2. Choose the Right Pickleball Court Construction Materials
The best and most used materials include:
- Concrete because it assures court durability. A durable pickleball court increases its value.
- Asphalt is an incredibly affordable material that won’t compromise your budget. And while it is a near-perfect playing surface, routine maintenance is crucial to keeping it in tip-top condition.
3. Finish with Suitable Perimeter Fencing
Perimeter fencing helps to keep the ball within the court’s playground. But it also provides security for both the participants and the audience. A wide range of pickleball fencing exists. You can pick based on functionality and style. For example, a wire mesh fencing type enables the spectators to see what’s happening on the court. Light and air also effortlessly flow through.
