Who doesn’t love a DIY Project?  We at Sport Surfaces know that sometimes you just want to do things yourself.  That is why we have DIY Packages for your courts with detailed instructions to help you tackle your DIY tennis court or basketball court project.

Step-By-Step Tennis & Basketball Court Resurfacing Instructions

Step 1

Pressure clean and power blow court(s) as necessary to remove loose dirt, mildew and oil.

Step 2

Patch depressions greater than 1/8” after 1 hour drying time in sunlight, grind down any ridges as necessary and fill existing cracks as best as possible prior to surfacing.

Step 3

Apply (1) Coat of Acrylic Resurfacer over entire court area to fill voids and provide smooth surface. The acrylic resurfacer is applied using a rubber bladed squeegee. It is important to make sure that you keep the squeegee edge wet to ensure that material flows smoothly.

Step 4

Apply (2) Coats of Color Concentrate (two-tone) to provide in depth color over court surface. Note: the two tone is a popular combination but 1 color can be used. It is easier to install the paint using 2 people

Step 5

Stripe (paint) lines to regulation size.

Painting can be a very time consuming experience. 3M Masking tape is highly recommended. Use our tape machine to help install the lines. Also download the diagrams from sportsurfaces.com site in order to lay out the lines properly. You will need a chalk line and two people in order to achieve straight lines.
