Basketball court construction
We can design and construct indoor basketball courts to your specifications.
Our domes are typically much more affordable than constructing permanent buildings and come as either fixed or telescopic structures.
We can also configure the interior of the building for multi-sports use allowing you to maximise it’s use.
Whether you’re looking to cover existing courts or start from scratch we deleiver a comprehensive service from planning to installation.
Telescopic domes from CopriSystems can provide all-weather flexibility for outdoor basketball facilities, pulling back quickly by hand or electrically in less than a minute in the event of rain or other disagreeable conditions.
Our fixed structures deleiver outstanding value and are fitted with sidewall curtains as standard which can be opened up to provide natural ventilation in agreeable weather.
For outdoor courts, poured concrete and asphalt are popular as a surface, although rubber is another option, reducing stress on the joints and improving the weather resistance of the court.
A strong defense
We offer a completely bespoke service but some common options include:
Extra insulation in the form of second membrane skins can be added if required, and we can also install bespoke lighting solutions that enable play to continue at night or in gloomy conditions.
Various surfaces can be specified as well as viewing areas and partitions to create changing rooms etc.

Basketball court construction layout
Basketball courts come in different shapes and sizes depending on the body governing the game. For example, under International Basketball Federation rules, the court is slightly smaller than an NBA court.
However, the baskets or hoops into which the ball must be thrown to score a goal are always 3.05 metres above the floor, except in some youth competitions.
A standard basketball court is split into two halves with a centre circle in the middle where the jump ball is contested. Baskets are situated at either end and are surrounded by a semi-circular restricted area.
Free throw circles sit at the end of rectangular free throw lanes around the restricted areas, while wide semi-circles or arcs mark the three-point lines. Any shot converted beyond these lines scores three points.
Indoor basketball courts are typically made from highly-polished wood, such as maple, which is sealed to protect the surface. However, rubber tiles and synthetic materials can also be used.
For outdoor courts, poured concrete and asphalt are popular, although rubber is another option, reducing stress on the joints and improving the weather resistance of the court.
At CopriSystems Ltd, we can provide covers and domes to suit all types of indoor and outdoor basketball facilities, from single courts to large sports venues with spectator areas.
