If you have extra space in your backyard, there’s no better way to use it than constructing a basketball court. With a court in your backyard, you can shoot hoops and use it as a gathering spot for family and friends whenever you want. A backyard basketball court provides excellent flexibility in terms of customization, placement and installation. 

Here are some backyard basketball court ideas to consider: 

Basketball Court Size

A key consideration to keep in mind is whether to construct a full-size or half-size basketball court. The amount of available space and budget play a role in determining the basketball court size you need. If you have extra backyard space and the budget to boot, a full-size court would be excellent. Sport Court Las Vegas works with all spaces and budgets, making your design and customization process a breeze.

However, not every basketball fan has a spacious backyard. In this case, you may want to install a half-court. Shooting courts are a popular choice for residential homes in the Las Vegas area. Depending on how big your backyard is, the experts at Sport Court Las Vegas can install standard half-size basketball courts with sizes ranging from 30′ x 30′ to 30′ x 50′ (you’ll need at least 30 ft. from the hoop for a decent shooting court). This way, you’ll still be able to transform your small backyard into a fun zone. 


When considering a backyard basketball court, you’ll undoubtedly want it customized to your preferences. With dozens of court surfacing and color options, it’s easy to customize your court and create a multifunctional fun sports zone. It’s a good idea to customize your court with all-season, weather-resistant sport surfaces like PowerGame +™.

You may even want to incorporate your favorite team’s colors and logos into your court design or add various sports features, accessories and gear. Standard customization features include multi-sport net systems, court lighting, ball rebounders and containment fencing. 


The beauty of installing a backyard basketball court is that it offers the playability of professional-standard courts at a fraction of the cost while also helping you to hone your ball skills.

It's crucial to consider the type of surface you plan to play on because it determines the court’s playability and longevity. Consider installing a high-quality court surface similar to those you’ll find on pro courts. Since outdoor courts are exposed to the elements, using quality surfacing materials will help withstand the harshest weather.

The surfacing needs to be slip-resistant when wet and allow water to drain off quickly. Likewise, it should be engineered to improve shock absorption. This will go a long way in reducing the risk of injury. The right court surface also reduces fatigue and joint strain, allowing your loved ones to shoot hoops safely.
