There’s a lot to love about Pickleball; it’s easy to learn, requires a smaller space, and is gentler on the body than your traditional racket sports. If you’re new to the world of Pickleball, picture a smaller version of tennis, or a larger version of ping pong with bigger paddles. Despite its compact badminton-size court, Pickleball is fast-paced, fun, and more accessible than ever as it continues to grow in popularity. 

What is Pickleball?

Pickleball is typically played on a badminton-size court and a slightly modified tennis net. A sport that anyone can easily play, the basic goals include:

  1. Not letting the ball go out of bounds
  2. Understanding the rules on how to serve the ball to the opposing person or team
  3. The “two bounce rule” or the ball must bounce at least once on both sides
  4. Avoiding the “No Volley-Zone” when serving the ball
  5. Knowing that the score goes up to 11, 15, or 21 points.

Thanks to the lightweight wiffleball used in Pickleball, virtually any indoor or outdoor space can be used as a Pickleball court. Tennis courts, basketball courts, and even indoor gym spaces have been successfully converted. Of course, each surface type will affect the pace of the game; properties like the speed of the ball bounce and surface traction are important aspects to consider for your playing preferences. 

Concrete, Asphalt, & Rubber Gym Flooring 

A quality concrete or gym surface can be repurposed into a Pickleball court. Harder courts and rubber surfaces are wonderful for maximum ball bounce and competitive tournaments. Tough and long-lasting gym flooring installation comes complete with striping, professional coatings, and everything else you need to maintain flawless Pickleball performance for years to come! 

Why Choose A Tennis Courts?

Did you know if you’re researching tennis court costs, you’re already on the right track for creating a Pickleball court? In general, if you’re after a beginner-friendly surface, playing on a tennis court is the way to go. 

The flooring is slightly “bouncy”, providing foot forgiveness and a slightly slower-paced game that’s perfect for new players and sensitive joints. It’s also a great court because of the casual community setting.
