Answer: Authorized Sport Court dealers, contractors and/or factory trained installers. SportProsUSA’s courts are built to specifications provided by the company engineering department and construction team. We can work with your contractor on base preparation, orientation, concrete specifications, setting anchors or sleeves, electrical, or other issues. We can provide an experienced installer to come in once the concrete has been poured to complete the installation of your surface, components, and lining. (Any lighting assembly hook-up would need to be done by a licensed electrician.)
Each family’s court is custom-designed with consideration to the following court building conditions and variables: climate, frost levels, soil type, water runoff/table, slope, neighbor considerations, Home Owners Association Guidelines, City/County/Township requirements (setbacks, easements, or other considerations) underground or over ground utilities, septic systems, drain fields, landscape aesthetics, orientation, sun direction in relationship to court, safety, optimum use, activity level, interest, and budget.
