Is Asphalt Pavement Best for Sports Courts?

April 2, 2022

A residential sports court installation can be the perfect way to increase your property value and ensure your family and guests have something fun to do. This can also be a beneficial commercial property installation, especially at a school, apartment complex, gym, or community center.

Regardless of where and why you are choosing to install a sports court, you will need to decide on materials. There are different types of pavements for sports courts, including clay, grass, plastic, or asphalt. As you decide on the materials, you will want to consider playability, durability, and maintenance.

Here are three main reasons why a hard court surface made from asphalt pavement works best for most sports court installations.

#1: Asphalt Is Resilient

Asphalt surfaces tend to be incredibly resilient. It can be used for a number of sports, such as tennis, basketball, and even racquetball. Surfaces like grass, plastic, or clay don’t offer as much versatility. When installed properly, asphalt pavement offers skid resistance and storm runoff. It can also be used in a variety of climates and can withstand the elements.

#2: Asphalt Is Low Maintenance

One of the best things about asphalt pavement for sports courts is that it requires minimal maintenance on the part of the owner. For the most part, the only upkeep an asphalt surface needs is a weekly sweeping and a yearly pressure washing. Aside from that, you just need to invest in a resurfacing of the asphalt every five years or so. With less maintenance required, you can enjoy the court.

#3: Asphalt Is Customizable

Many people don’t realize that asphalt can be customized to meet individual needs. The personalization options are abundant, from cushioning the surface to adding color to the asphalt. Therefore, you can still have a softer surface while also using whatever colors you want to create a sports court with a punch of personality. So, if you want a purple tennis court instead of the standard green, it’s possible!
