If the court surface is damaged, how difficult is it to replace?
Some of our courts were installed over 30 years ago and are still in play. While any damage is unlikely because our sport flooring is made of durable polypropylene, it’s very easy to swap out any tiles that need to be replaced, and every court is backed by our manufacturer's 15-year warranty.

How do I maintain my Sport Court home gym flooring?
This couldn’t be easier! For home gym owners, all you need is regular dust-mopping and the occasional deep clean from a wet mop.
How do I maintain my Sport Court outdoor game court?
This is simple and easy. A broom, blower, or hose can be used to keep the top surface free of debris. Water will drain quickly through the open grate, making sure your court is ready for play soon after cleaning or inclement weather.
How long has Sport Court St. Louis been in business?
Sport Court St. Louis has been building quality game courts and backyard recreational facilities for over a decade, with Sport Court building backyard courts since the 1974's. In fact, Sport Court invented the backyard game court. No other company has been around longer or built as many courts, so you can be assured we will be here to service you for years to come.
Why is the Sport Court outdoor surface important? Can’t I just play on painted concrete?
This is about the safety of your children, and no other outdoor sports surface can deliver a better combination of shock absorption, ball response, traction, and playability than our PowerGame™ outdoor modular flooring. With the combination of a PowerGame surface atop our patented SportBase™, heads are protected from injury from falls of up to 46 inches. Our other sport flooring options offer comparable safety benefits.
How long will a game court last?
Our modular sport floors are covered by a 15-year limited warranty, and we expect them to deliver playability, safety, and durability for even longer.
Is the surface slippery when wet?
Almost any surface can be slippery when wet. However, Sport Court’s open-grid design sheds water quickly, making it possible to return to action sooner than any other surface.
Do I need a permit to build a backyard court or home gym?
It depends on your neighborhood. We have experience in working with municipalities and neighborhoods to help you navigate the required regulations.
Why do I need a visit from a local CourtBuilder?
