TVS can offer solutions at every level: from the elite and professional requirements of stadiums and arenas, through recreational and training facilities for all ages and budgets, to the small assembly or multi-purpose community hall. TVS has designed and installed dozens of basketball floors over the past decade. We can use hardwood or engineered timber for indoor courts to suit your budget. The most popular outdoor playing surfaces are acrylic and asphalt.

Why Choose TVS?

We have extensive basketball court experience having worked on hundreds of indoor and outdoor basketball projects. Our customers include amateur and professional teams, gyms, sports centres, community centres, schools and colleges.

We can design a basketball court to suit your budget and sporting requirements. Whether you want a professional playing surface or basketball flooring that can also be used for other sports like indoor hockey this is no problem for us.

In addition to timber hardwood flooring for professional basketball use, we also supply polyurethane basketball floors. These can be used for indoor tennis and other court games. If you are building an outdoor court, we recommend porous acrylic or asphalt. Both surfaces have their pros and cons. We tend to mostly recommend acrylic.

We provide a complete basketball flooring solution including design, supply, installation and recycling. You will only need one contractor for your project. You can also expect the very best customer service. Advice is free and we provide aftercare for the lifetime of your floor, so if you have any issues, we will look after you.

What is The Best Basketball Flooring?

The best basketball flooring for indoor courts is timber (hardwood or engineered wood). This is the traditional material favoured by professionals and the NBA. An alternative to timber for indoor courts is polyurethane. This is a good option when your space will be used for other sports and non-sport events.

Outdoors, we recommend porous acrylic. Porous acrylic is the same material used in tennis courts. It offers excellent performance for basketball.

If you don’t want acrylic, asphalt is another option. Asphalt is the least forgiving basketball surface, but it provides excellent wear and bounce. Most of the outdoor basketball courts in urban environments have an asphalt floor. Whichever floor you choose, it’s important to prioritise player safety. The floor needs to provide adequate grip.

If your indoor basketball court is in an enclosed space, you should also install wall crash pads to protect players. We can recommend the right basketball floor for your budget and use case. Get in touch for free advice and a chat about your project today.
