How to Build
With the help of ZSFloor, DIY Basketball Court is like a puzzle, like 1, 2, 3...
Level the ground and establish a concrete base
If the ground is not level, you must level it.
- Dig the site to a depth of 8 inches (20 cm).
- Add a 4 inch (10 cm) thick layer of compacted gravel.
- Build concrete/asphalt base: recommended concrete (100mm thick/25MPA/rebar).
Gravel helps level the ground and allows water to drain from under the floor, so it is less likely to be damaged.
Measure the size of the site
Measure the length and width of the court to facilitate the design of the field and the drawing of lines.
Install the basketball hoop
Choose two 10-foot (3.0-meter) high basketball hoops (1 for half court). Look for a ground basketball hoop that can be permanently installed for the most durable option. If you want to make them shorter or taller, choose an adjustable basketball hoop. In this way, it is easier for younger children to shoot.
Design your basketball court
Look for a designer, design the line drawing position of the court according to the size of the venue and design your own LOGO, you can put the LOGO in the restricted area and other places. Then make drawings of the basketball court.
Note: If you use ZSFloor basketball court floor, ZSFloor designers will design your court and make drawings with you according to your court size for FREE.
