Home outdoor basketball court

Looking into getting one installed.

Keen on some feedback on what has and hasn't worked well for people who have done the same.

Keen on suggestions re the type of hoop to get and also how well the rubber tiles work.

Consult your neighbours and get approval if required by your local council.

You will get complaints if you are in relative proximity to people nearby.

You may be forced to take it down as I guaranteed you will piss everyone off with your constant bouncing.

Suggest you go play at your local courts which have better facilities.

You may be required to lodge a local development application with the council, which may require various forms of local government approval, building reports and safety assessments.

I suggest thorough research of the full breakdown of costs, approval paperwork and community impacts assessments that may be required before making any decisions.

Mick - local courts often have terrible facilities. It's rare to find a decent outdoor court. Then when you do there's a line-up to play at it.

Any idea what a Dreamcourt setup goes for.

I installed an in-ground Goalrilla setup on our driveway a couple of years ago. It still looks brand new after being out in the weather all that time with practically daily use. Far from cheap, but it is very good value for money in my opinion.

I have not investigated laying down tiles, the bricked driveway serves the purpose.

Just went through the above post's link as I'm getting a 9x5m court soon for a new house.. looks like lots of differing opinions.

Does anyone have a Dreamcourt? According to them, the tiles reduce the bounce noise by 30%, does it affect bounce quality?

Swish Courts are FIBA approved for bounce and rebound but doesn't look like it reduces noise.
