It’s extremely important to keep your sports court properly maintained, the maintenance process ensures that the court remains safe and the playing characteristics don’t falter. There are two main types of basketball court maintenance, the first being proactive work, which is keeping the court completely maintained on a regular basis. This can include deep cleaning and pressure washing the court, as well as regular brushing to remove any debris.
It’s important to make sure that there are no contaminations such as dirt, twigs, leaves and mud on the playing surface as this can seriously affect the playing characteristics of the facility. We can supply you with a quotation for any cleaning or repair work which may be required, so please contact us today.
Sport Surface Chemical Treatments
If you have a macadam court or polymeric MUGA it’s important that you remove all contaminants from the surface, but also have a moss and algae treatment done to ensure that nothing will grow onto the surface that could prove difficult and damaging to the surface to remove. The second main type of maintenance is reactive maintenance; this is dealing with an already present problem, such as the fading of line markings or tears/holes in the surfacing. We offer a variety of basketball court maintenance methods to deal with these such as:
- Reline marking – Recoating the painted line markings to make playing on the surface easier and game scoring more precise.
- Repairs – Making sure that any potential safety hazards such as tears or holes in the macadam surfacing are properly repaired to reduce risk of accidents and injury.
- Resurfacing – In the event that the basketball court is in very bad condition, it may be necessary to completely resurface the court as this might be the only way of regaining the top quality performance and safety characteristics.
Costs of Maintaining Basketball Surfaces
The costs of maintaining basketball surfaces will vary depending on a variety of reasons, the main one being the size and dimensions of the court – the bigger the court the longer the maintenance job could take, if spread across two days it’ll cost more due to accommodation charges. Also if the job involves a chemical treatment such as the removal of moss and algae, more agent will be needed therefore increasing the price. However basketball court maintenance should be seen as a long term investment, as with a well maintained surface, the product life will be significantly longer that one that is not maintained.
This means that the costs of maintaining basketball surfaces should be seen as an investment in the future quality of the facility. We also recommend that cleaning and maintenance costs are included in your initial budget for the project as a whole as they really are key factors in the durability and longevity of your basketball surface. However we can tailor a price quote for you which will fit within your budget and still give you a great quality end result.
Woodhouse grove school
Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!
Activity For All
Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
