Options for Gaga Ball Pit Flooring

You might be more familiar with Lady Gaga than Gaga Ball, but you can be a fan of both! Gaga ball is a sport that’s growing in popularity (even some Little Monsters love to play it). When you want to create a fun place for you and the kids to exercise, building your own place to play gaga ball is easier than you think. Greatmats has the best gaga ball pit flooring options for your DIY project.

You can build a court for gaga ball in your backyard, at a school, at an after-school activity center, at a neighborhood or city park, or at a church. Our customer service team has plenty of ideas to help you create the best surface when you are building your gaga pit.

Types of Outdoor Gaga Pit Flooring

The best surface for gaga pit flooring depends on the planned use case. You have three primary options for installing your gaga pit floor.

Plastic Tiles

Polypropylene, polyethylene, and PVC plastic products are available in multiple colors that will ramp up the level of fun for the kids. These plastic flooring tiles provide practicality, too, delivering good traction on a smooth surface, a bit of cushioning in case of falls, and excellent durability. Many plastic tiles have perforations that allow rain to drain away.

Rubber Tiles

Finding the best gaga ball pit rubber flooring is easy with the help of the Greatmats customer service team. Many of our gaga pit rubber floors have several colors available in addition to the traditional black, meaning you can include a fun design in the pit. Rubber is durable, delivers traction, and stands up to weather.


Artificial turf is a great flooring for gaga ball pits, as it looks green all year around while mimicking a natural grass surface without the upkeep struggles. When installed properly, it provides a perfect surface for ball sports, yet it won’t show wear and tear like natural turf. If you want colors other than green, Greatmats has plenty of options for you.

Qualities to Seek in Gaga Ball Pit Flooring

Here are some of the best qualities to seek in a gaga ball pit mat.
  • Flat surface: It is a quick sport, so the surfaces should be flat without edges or bumps that players could trip on. Tiles should connect securely in order to create safer surfaces.
  • Shock absorption: Even with the smoothest surface, trips and falls will happen in this sport. Seek out materials that ensure a softer landing and, ideally, a configuration that absorbs shock to help reduce the chance of injury. Some come with ASTM fall ratings to help keep players safe.
  • Weatherproof: Because it is usually installed outdoors, gaga pit flooring needs to be able to handle weather of all kinds.
  • Drainage: The gaga pit flooring will likely see plenty of rain between games. Look for a configuration that drains fast to allow use again soon after a storm.
  • Ease of installation: If it’s a DIY install, then look for a model that can be installed over a variety of surfaces, like dirt or sand, without requiring extensive site prep.
  • Portability: To have the option to relocate the gaga pit flooring in the future, select gaga ball pit flooring that installs without the need for glue.
  • Low maintenance: Spend more time playing and less on maintaining it. Simplifying the maintenance process guarantees plenty of time for fun.
