  • How long does it take to build an outdoor multi-court?
  • No two backyards are the same and each game court is custom designed, it is difficult to say with certainty how long it will take. It depends on weather, access, terrain, permits, council approvals, and so on.
  • Once the designs, colors, and plans are finalized, components are ordered and construction schedules are set, most courts are ready to go in under two weeks.
  • What is the recommended foundation for Exhibit Sports flooring?
  • We recommend a 4in court base of steel-reinforced concrete, as it offers the best long-term result. For unstable soil, compaction or water table concerns, Exhibit Sports recommends post-tension concrete reinforced with cables. Asphalt can also be used as a less expensive option for tennis courts. Unusual conditions may require custom base options, so your personal Exhibit Sports expert will help you choose the right base for your needs, but steel-reinforced concrete is generally the best option. Steel-reinforced concrete is generally the best option.

  • Who installs the outdoor game courts?
  • Authorised Exhibit Sports contractors and company trained installers will install the courts. Who we use depends on where you are in Australia. Our sport courts are built to specifications calculated by our engineering and construction teams.
  • We can work with your contractor on base preparation, orientation, concrete specifications, setting anchors or sleeves, electrical, and other issues. We can also provide a professional to install your sport surface, lining, basketball hoops, ball containment, rebounder and lighting assembly (hook-up needs to be done by a licensed electrician) once the concrete has been laid.
  • Can we just buy the flooring and do the installation ourselves?
  • Yes, Exhibit Sports can just provide the components with the option of installation and/or laying of the concrete.
  • What is a multi-court?
  • A multi-court is designed to accommodate all your favorite sports & games in a space ¼ the size of a tennis court. A standard tennis court is 60ftx120ft (7200 sq. ft.), while an average multi-court is 30x60ft (1800 sq. ft.).
  • Families with a favorite paddle or racquet sport may want only the official lining of that sport installed, and we are happy to accommodate. Pickleball lines are 20x44ft, badminton doubles are 20x44ft, short and foam tennis are 20x50ft, and paddle tennis are 20x50ft.
  • Is there a half court size available?
  • Yes, Exhibit Sports builds half and full court basketball courts. Our most popular half court sizes are 30x30ft, 30x40ft, and 30x50ft. Our most popular courts are 35x55ft, 30x60ft, 35x65ft, 40x70ft, 46x75ft, 50x80ft, 54x94ft & 56x104ft.
  • What fencing is recommended?
  • It depends on how the court sits in the yard, the adjacent topography, proximity to neighbours, and your personal preference.

    Unless there is a safety concern or nearby hillside we encourage customers to use a 10ft high containment on both ends of the court and a 30ft return, 10ft high, along the sides of the court. This will use about 30% less fencing than a full enclosure. For example, a 60ft x 120ft court fenced this way uses 240 linear feet of fence, while a full enclosure uses 360 linear feet. This design reduces costs yet contains most errant shots. Also, open sides make the court look better and feel less confined. If there is a severe slope or close neighbour on one side, you can use 10ft fencing on that side only.

    Another option for full enclosures is to use 10ft high fencing on the ends and a mix of heights on the sides. Sides that are 10' high at the ends, but drop to 5ft high toward the middle of the court (about 30ft from each end) look great.
