To create a safe space for playing basketball, it’s important to have the highest-quality and best possible playing surface. Players need to be able to make sharp cuts without worrying about slipping. Specialized basketball court tiles from Greatmats deliver outstanding performance and durability.

We offer both indoor and outdoor tiles that work well for a DIY installation. They do not require specialized installation techniques, which greatly simplifies the process of creating basketball flooring in very little time.

Size and Shape Options

The individual interlocking tiles each measure 1 by 1 foot, which is an easily manageable size for the installer. You do not need any specialized equipment to install the basketball court tiles.

Each tile uses a hidden interlocking edge, rather than a jigsaw puzzle edge, which ensures that customers receive a full 1 square foot of coverage from each tile. (A puzzle edge tile may have a slight interlock loss in terms of coverage area.)

These square basketball court tiles have thicknesses ranging from 1/2 inches to 5/8 inches, which keeps the tiles lightweight and easy to handle throughout the installation process. Individual tiles weigh between 0.75 pounds and 2 pounds.

Material Options

The best type of material to create your basketball or volleyball court will depend on whether you are seeking an indoor or outdoor installation.

For an indoor layout, customers can use a perforated or solid tile. Our solid tiles will have a polypropylene plastic material throughout or a hard plastic base with a vinyl top layer. The vinyl tile contains a printed layer designed to resemble a hardwood basketball floor, as would appear in a gymnasium.

Outdoor basketball court tiles typically consist of polypropylene plastic or PVC plastic. The majority of these tile designs will consist of a perforated design. With the holes that extend through the entire thickness of the tile, any rainwater will drain through, making the surface playable faster after the storm.

The design of the perforated tile ensures that it will not have any weaknesses. It can stand up to rough play and continue to look like new, unlike a cheap tile can do.

Pattern and Texture Options

Although these smooth tiles do not contain any texture on the surface, they give basketball players a high level of traction as they play. Players do not have to worry about slipping, and they can wear their favorite basketball shoes safely on these surfaces.

The solid plastic base tiles with the vinyl cover layer contain a printed layer that resembles a basketball floor. Customers can select from a range of wood stain colors, so they can achieve the perfect look.

For the polypropylene and PVC plastic tiles with either a solid design or a perforated design, more than a dozen color choices are available. Colors in these tiles include:
  • Blue
  • Gray
  • Red
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Pink
  • Orange
  • Gray
  • Brown
  • Black

For a brand of basketball court tiles that has multiple colors available, customers can mix and match the colors, if desired, as every tile within the brand uses the same locking system.

Common Use Options

Both residential and commercial customers can make use of these tiles to create a versatile basketball court.

For use at home, customers may construct the basketball court outdoors in the backyard over concrete, over a gravel surface, or over hard ground. If wanting to place the basketball tiles indoors, they can go over a cement floor in a basement or over carpet in a rec room.

At a fitness center, school, church, youth center, or YMCA, customers can create courts indoors or outdoors. Depending on the amount of space available, these tiles work equally well for a full court installation, for a half court installation, or for creating a series of side-by-side courts with a continuous floor.

Installation Options

Installing our basketball court tiles takes very little time. Just line up the tabs on one tile with the slots or hooks on the adjacent tile and press them together.

There is no need to place glue or adhesive on the interlocking system, as the tabs and hooks will hold the tiles together, even when placing them under the stress of basketball players running, cutting, and jumping over the top of them.

By not using glue, installers can disassemble the tiles and return to the subfloor at any time.

Should installers need to place one of these tiles up against the wall, they can cut the tile to fit tightly.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

To clean the tiles, start by removing any dust or other dry debris from the surface. When the tiles are indoors, use a vacuum cleaner or a broom to clean dirt. For an outdoor installation, a leaf blower works well to remove debris, or you can just rinse them.

You then can wash the tiles for a thorough cleaning. Indoors, make use of a gentle household floor cleaner and apply it with a mop. Outdoors, use a garden hose with a sprayer attachment to rinse the tiles before allowing them to dry in the sun.
