What to Know About Building a Basketball or Tennis Court on Your Property, 9, Tennessee

Adding a basketball or tennis court to your rental property encourages residents to get healthy exercise, and also attracts the kind of tenants that sustain your business. That’s why many apartment complexes feature sport courts. Before working with a paving company to install a basketball or tennis court at your complex, here’s what you should know. 

Why Build a Basketball or Tennis Court?

Installing a sport court is an excellent way to take your apartment complex to the next level. Many people enjoy playing sports, both for exercise and for entertainment, and tennis and basketball are two of the most popular with 1 billion and 825 million fans respectively. Adding a tennis or basketball court to your property saves your residents the time and money they might otherwise spend at the gym or in the traveling in the car. Sports courts also help attract new residents and maintain current ones. 

What to Consider Before You Start Building

  • Size: Most paving companies offer different sizes and shapes for sport courts. Think about how big you want your court to be, and make sure your property has enough space for it. 
  • Material: when choosing the material for their basketball or tennis court, many people choose asphalt because it stands up well against the elements and extensive use. Asphalt is also available in a wide variety of colors, so you can pick hues that complement your complex and please your residents. 
  • Maintenance: For your sports court to attract residents, you’ll need to take care of it. Asphalt is an ideal low-maintenance option—sweep it weekly, pressure wash it yearly, and resurface it about every five years.
