Backyard Basketball is better on a synthetic surface

A sloping section and limited area did not prevent this basketball enthusiast from creating the ultimate back yard basketball area.

  • Turf: Domestic Landscaping & Multi-Sports
  • Date Project Completed: December 2017
  • Area: 197m2
  • Surface: MapeCoat Acrylic
  • Base: Concrete base

A passion for basketball fulfilled
Our client’s passion for basketball inspired him to want his own court. However, his sloping lawn wasn’t suitable for ball sports, so he contacted TigerTurf.

Inspired by Auckland Council's Sparks Boroughs Project
Our client had played on the community courts we had installed in various Auckland parks for the Sparks Boroughs Project and asked us to use the same Mapei Acrylic surface for a basketball key. The Sparks Boroughs Project was made possible by a major Spark sponsorship and was managed by the Auckland Council to provide top quality basketball courts for Auckland communities.

Youngsters inspired by Steve Adams
The Sparks Boroughs Project was made possible by a major Spark sponsorship and was managed by the Auckland Council to provide top quality basketball courts for Auckland communities. Youngsters inspired by Steve Adams have taken up the opportunity to play on the brilliantly coloured courts in their local parks.

The Layout provided plenty of room for play
The contour of the land was steep and there wasn’t room for a full-size court. We thought it was an excellent idea to use the action-packed goal box instead providing plenty of room for play by a few people within a relatively small area.

The concrete base was built by the client’s building contractor, retained by concrete block walls with the steep side protected by a fence.  TigerTurf installed the Mapei Acrylic basketball key over the concrete base, with line markings completed to basketball’s specifications.

We even managed to install his basketball court before Christmas so he could enjoy basketball throughout the summer with his friends.
