Whether it’s for residential or commercial use, modular courts are becoming increasingly popular for sports enthusiasts. Not only do they provide a safe, enjoyable space for your favourite court games, but they’re also attractive and completely customizable.

There are numerous benefits to installing sports rubber tiles, but there are also several things to consider before deciding to do so. In this article, we’ll go over important considerations to make before making your purchase.

What Types of Surfaces Can My Court Tiles Be Installed On?

Court tiles, like our SnapGRID® LX – Sport Tiles & Court Kids, should be installed on a hard and level base, such as concrete, asphalt, or paving stones. This will provide the best ball bounce and performance. Our exclusive SnapGRID® XXL – Sports Base & Court Panels can be installed on a level, compact aggregate base and are specifically designed for areas where concrete and asphalt are not desired. We do not recommend installing sports rubber tile flooring directly over grass because it doesn’t offer a stable base for your court and won’t give you the best ball performance.

Can Sports Rubber Tiles Be Used Outdoors?

Yes, absolutely! Our sport rubber tiles and court kits are designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The tiles have UV protection and perforations that allow for proper drainage.

Why Use Court Tiles Instead of Just Using the Concrete of Asphalt?

Court rubber tiles are stylish and offer higher shock absorbency than concrete or asphalt, which helps to reduce the impact on your joints. Sport tiles provide the right amount of traction for gameplay, while concrete and asphalt can be too grippy, leading to potential strains and sprains. Additionally, fewer scrapes and cuts occur with sport tiles should falls happen, making it a safer surface to play on.

Our sports rubber tile flooring allows for drainage and dries much quicker than most other surfaces. Another reason these court kits are gaining popularity is that you can customize designs and add custom game lines paint to your court, making it more functional. Custom logos can be added, as well, furthering personalization options and ensuring your court is unique.

Sports rubber tiles are ideal for a variety of indoor and outdoors sports, including pickleball, badminton, gaga ball pit, and volleyball.

How Do You Maintain Sports Rubber Tiles?

Court tiles are easy to clean. To remove debris, use a broom or leaf blower. You can also hose down the tiles to remove any additional dirt or debris that doesn’t brush away.
