Backyard Courts Pittsburgh

Benefits to sport court installation Pittsburgh at your home.

We know dedication, hard work, and discipline help foster a good athlete. This entails a lot of practice and good access to the right courts and equipment. There are open gyms to attend and gyms to join, but this means, joining pick-up games (when you were hoping to practice your free throws), annual and monthly fees associated with memberships, having to reserve a court in advance, and in some cases, age-restrictions and unkept courts. But, what if you had a sport court in your own backyard? Sport Court of Pittsburgh is sharing why installing a sport court at your Pittsburgh home is a healthy investment for you and your family!

Open Gyms

Don’t get us wrong, we support neighborhood “open gym” sessions and agree they’re wonderful to attend for many reasons. They are however very limited on time and space and host a slew of people typically sharing 2 hoops.  From the social aspect they are great, but if you’re looking for a more solo or one-on-one experience to train, a sport court can offer these features for budding and seasoned athletes alike.

Gym Memberships

Large recreational and fitness facilities may offer a court, but it’s usually an all-inclusive package. So, if you want access to the court, you going to have to pay the monthly or annual fees that support the pool, group fitness classes, juice bars, saunas and steam rooms too. If you’re not using these amenities, you’re wasting your money. Also, consider you’re competing with possibly hundreds of other members also wanting to hit the court. If you’re a volleyball enthusiast, but the courts are mostly used for basketball, you’re at a disadvantage. If you just want to practice lay-ups, but there are rec leagues scheduled at the times you want to hit the gym, you’re also at a disadvantage. If you like tennis, then you’ll have to get in line with the other members who reserved the two or three squash and racquetball courts your gym has to offer. Limited space, limited availability, and a pricey fitness center you joined just for one sport? Sounds like it’s time to call Sport Court of Pittsburgh!

Age-Restrictions for Kids.

While many gym chains have basketball court access, some require a parent or guardian to be in attendance, as well as an overall age-restriction. This is something to consider when raising a child athlete.

Travel Time to the Court

After a long day of school, work and traffic, don’t you just want to head home, grab a bite to eat, fill up your water bottle and hit the court? If you’re traveling to and from a public court, you’ll have to consider packing clothes, shoes, water bottles, and equipment. If you have kids, that’s even more packing and running around. This is a lot of rushing to the court, only to find out there are three other families who already beat you to it!

Borough Courts

It’s awesome your borough offers parks and recreational features like asphalt and concrete dek hockey rinks and basketball, tennis and volleyball courts. But, these courts are likely not tended to as much as your school’s property, a fitness center or a court in your own backyard. Cracks or uneven cement, wet leaves and other normal wear and tear pose injury to any athlete.
