Interlocking Garage Floor Tiles
Skip to Content
Cost of a full court basketball court can range from $10,000 - $24,000*. A half-court cost can range between $2,700-8,300.* As with most construction projects, the cost to build basketball court can vary greatly depending on a number of factors. Below are 9 key elements to estimating the cost to build a basketball court in your backyard.
Size of Court
This may seem rather obvious, but the larger your court, the more costs you will incur for excavation, base preparation, court tile and accessories. To get a rough idea for material costs, you can start by estimating the square footage you will need for the base and tile.
While a regulation NBA basketball court is 50’ wide by 94’ long, very few homeowners feel the need to actually build a full basketball court in their yard. Fortunately, our team at VersaCourt can produce a basketball court to fit any space. However, we also offer a number of basketball court kits to help give you a few ideas for some of our more popular sizes and designs.

Once you know the dimensions of your space, you can use VersaCourt’s Interactive Court Designer or work with one of our dealers or in-house designers to choose your court tile colors, designs, and lines options. There is typically no charge for this service.
Interested in transforming your entire backyard? For an added fee, you can also work with one of our certified landscape architects at Lanmark Designs to integrate your backyard basketball court into a more comprehensive landscape design.
Land Preparation: Excavation & Grading
Estimating the cost for this work will depend significantly on how complex the work is and who will do it.
How Complex is the Work - Building a basketball court requires an extremely flat, hard surface. Depending on your space, making an area flat may be one of your biggest costs as there are many variables:
Who will do the work - VersaCourt customers range from do-it-yourselfers or those who act as their own general contractors to those who prefer to work with a VersaCourt dealer or their own landscape company.
Subsurface: Concrete, Asphalt, or Other
The ideal base for a VersaCourt basketball court is a 4” thick concrete slab using 3000 PSI concrete and #4 rebar reinforcements. You can learn more about base and sub-surfacing options, but for the purpose of this analysis, we are highlighting the most popular and most highly recommended base. National averages for concrete slabs built to our general specifications typically run $4 to $10 per square foot* but can vary based on the following:
While VersaCourt provides general concrete specifications for each of their court systems, local state and building codes vary and should be taken into consideration when determining the cost of a backyard basketball court base.
Once again, most VersaCourt customers find that their local concrete contractors can provide a bid on this aspect of the project. They can also typically bid on pouring the piers for the goal post, net post sleeves, fencing and lights for basketball court applications.

VersaCourt Surfacing & Assembly
Determining the costs for the VersaCourt tile surfacing is easy. Simply provide our in-house sales team or dealer with your dimensions or tell us the standard court kit you’d like to use. VersaCourt volleyball courts typically include the cost of pre-painted lines.
Additional Lines & Logos
For those wanting to add additional 3-point lines or turn their basketball court into a multi-sport game court, VersaCourt offers a number of additional line options. Our in-house painting and decorating team can even add a logo or other artwork to your court for an additional fee.
VersaCourt Tile Assembly
VersaCourt's click-together latching mechanism and innovative production process make the installation of the VersaCourt tile systems one of the easiest aspects to building a backyard basketball court.
All courts are fully assembled in our warehouse and all requested lines and logos are pre-painted by our team of professionals in a controlled environment to ensure accuracy and longevity. We then number each section, disassemble your court and pack the tiles according to your numbered diagram. This process makes your VersaCourt DIY installation a breeze.
Basketball Court Accessories
No basketball court is complete without at least one basketball goal and most full-size courts will typically utilize two goals. So, when determining the cost to build your backyard basketball court, you should consider the following:
Beyond the goal systems, you’ll want to consider the material and installation costs for other common accessories like rebounders, lighting systems and more. Learn more about the most common Court Accessories we offer.
Design, Project Management, Construction & Installation
As with any construction project, there are many details involved in designing and building your own basketball court. In general, the more elements of the project that you manage yourself, the less costs you will incur, but the more work you have to do.
The Supplier You Choose
Finally, who you choose to supply your tile, manage your project and do the construction/installation can have a profound impact on its cost.
At VersaCourt, we focus on manufacturing high quality, high performance surfacing in an environmentally friendly manner with the goal of providing our customers with the best value possible. We don’t inflate our prices based on how long we have been in business or expensive corporate sponsorships that don’t add any value to your court.
So, while we typically offer some of the lowest costs in the industry, we never sacrifice quality, safety or design to provide this value. Rather, we use innovative designs and highly systematized and automated manufacturing techniques to reduce costs while achieving massive economies of scale due to our family ownership of Swisstrax, IceCourt and CH3 Solutions modular flooring systems.
Plus, unlike some of our competitors, we don’t force you to use a certified dealer that has to pay high franchise fees for the exclusive right to sell to you. Rather we let you choose by providing the information you need to build your own basketball court while also maintaining a nationwide network of experienced dealers that can provide complete turnkey solutions.
