If you’ve been considering getting a sport court for your home, you may be wondering how long the sport court materials actually last. Depending on the materials that you use and how often you use the sport court.

What to do If You Have a Concrete or Asphalt Court

Before playing on your asphalt or concrete court, you will want to check for any signs of winter damage. In some cases, you may find areas that have cracked or crumbled due to the repeat freezing process throughout the winter season.

You also need to check for any low spots that could trip you up during practice. You will need to contact a company that specializes in asphalt or concrete work to repair your court. If your court is aged or damaged, it can be dangerous to play on. It is also likely that your painted lines have faded, so those will need to be touched up too before using the court.

PowerGame Sports Surfaces

Winter is no match for PowerGame™ suspended sports surfaces.
When you’re ready to enjoy the nice weather and play on your sport court, all you need to do is sweep away any debris, powerwash away any dirt or debris, and then have fun!

The PowerGame sports surface is designed to expand and contract with temperature changes, unlike concrete and asphalt, which can crack due to the freeze and thaw cycle.

These tiles are also self-draining, meaning they will dry quickly for a safe, dry playing surface. Additionally, these tiles will not mold like conventional court surfaces since they are anti-microbial.

Additionally, the sport court tiles will remain vibrant, even when exposed to the sun!

How Long Will My Court Last?

While asphalt courts last around 6 to 10 years and concrete last about ten years, they require extensive maintenance and repairs to keep them safe for playing on.

With a sport court, you are covered by a 15-year limited warranty. The sport court is expected to offer safety, playability, and durability for at least the time of the warranty.

If a tile becomes damaged, you can simply replace the damaged tiles rather than needing to replace the entire court. The length of time your court lasts will depend on the material you use, how often you use your court, and if you properly maintain your sport court.

Benefits of Using a Sport Court vs. Concrete or Asphalt

When playing on asphalt or concrete, your knees will absorb the shock of landing on the hard surface when jumping or running. Also, falling on asphalt and concrete can lead to bumps, cuts, and bruises.

PowerGame sports surfaces are designed to reduce the likelihood of head injuries and concussions. Meanwhile, Sport Court’s patented Lateral Forgiveness™ technology helps to reduce the wear and tear on joints and muscles from active play, so athletes of all ages can keep playing longer and safer.
