Indoor Basketball Court Tiles
Before installing any basketball court tiles indoors, it’s important to check the subfloor. We recommend using a rubber underlayment and placing the tiles over the top. The underlayment provides a solid material to support the tiles, as well as a bit of cushioning under the hard sport tiles for athletes. Our customers love these snap together tiles because they’re easy to install and clean, whether they’re installed in a school, a home, or a commercial facility. No adhesive is required for installing them either.
When using modular basketball court and sport tiles, the raised base on the tiles will allow airflow beneath them. Should any moisture end up on the subfloor, the airflow will dry it, preventing mold, mildew, or odor in the area. With the flow of air around and underneath these outdoor court tiles, they can be used in areas where moisture-sensitive wood flooring cannot be used, including basements or backyards.
Solid Color Indoor Sport Court Tiles
Toughness and durability highlight the Flat Top Court Floor Tile from Greatmats. This modular pro sports flooring uses an unbreakable polypropylene plastic material that will not absorb water.

The tap and loop connection system on the tiles allows for a tight fit without the need for adhesives. These connectors hold the pieces of the volleyball flooring together, even when they’re placed under stress.
Wood Look Basketball Court Floors
Indoor gymnasiums don’t have to use wood to have a great-looking, high-quality athletic court. Instead, our modular tiles deliver the look of wood in materials that have a much lower cost per square foot of coverage.

Volleyball Court Tiles
Using a volleyball flooring tile style of flooring indoors or outdoors provides the sure footing and cushioned landing that volleyball players need. During normal game play, volleyball players are constantly diving for balls on the floor or jumping at the net to attack the ball or block a shot, meaning a high-quality floor is a must.
Our sport court floor for volleyball will help players practice for longer periods of time when paired with the right subfloor. It’ll have just the right amount of give in the flooring to keep ankle and knee joints feeling fresh when coaches are running drills where the players do a lot of jumping at the net. A hard subflooring with no give to it can wear down the players’ bodies over time.
One of the nicest things about our flooring when setting up a volleyball court is that it’s available in either a wood grain or in a solid color finish. Volleyball courts look great in either a wood finish or solid color, which makes our tiles a perfect choice for an area in a school, church gym, or athletic facility where the sports court will host multiple sports.
Tennis Court Tiles
Many customers like using our tiles to create tennis courts in almost any location. When installing this type of tile outdoors, always look for a tile consisting of UV safe materials. If the material in the tennis flooring tile doesn’t have UV resistance built into it, it could have a shorter lifespan from sun damage.
We offer tennis court tiles that will work for either an indoor or outdoor installation. For athletic facilities that want to provide tennis lessons year around, for example, having these tiles installed inside the building provides a perfect surface for this type of workout.
Outdoor athletic tiles also will work well for sports beyond tennis. Some of our customers choose to make use of these tiles to create inline hockey flooring, shuffleboard areas, basketball courts, or other types of outdoor athletic courts. We even see this type of tile installed around pools, as the perforations in the surface of the tiles allows water to flow through it to keep the surface drier.
Durable Sport Court
Our Greatmats tiles for sports courts have a durable construction. These made in the USA products use safe and high-quality materials, delivering a good value over time. The surface of this style of tile includes a commercial grade vinyl that has a wear layer of about 0.5 mm in thickness. It may seek like a thin layer, but it is specifically designed to provide years of constant use without showing wear.
These tiles are made specifically for use with shoes with flexible soles, like basketball, tennis, volleyball, and other athletic shoes. Even with constant practice and games scheduled on our indoor basketball court tiles, the surface of the flooring will not show marks from shoe scuffs. The court will continue to look great for several years, thanks to the finish on the tiles and the wear layer.
Busy facilities that will be hosting athletic games and practices as well as other events will be able to make use of our durable tiles. The polypropylene does not absorb water, so if those watching the games or attending the event spill liquids on the flooring, it won’t absorb the liquid and it’ll be easy to clean by simply mopping it with a common floor cleaning product.
It’s also a no-break polypropylene plastic material, so it’ll stand up to heavy weights without snapping or collapsing. This allows multiple people to be standing on the court at the same time as spectators without causing damage to the floor.
Sports Court Flooring Underlayment
When seeking an underlayment option for a sports court flooring installation, count on Greatmats to have the materials required at a great price. We recommend using a rubber subfloor between 3 mm and 6 mm in thickness underneath these basketball flooring tiles.
Having the right type of subfloor installed under our basketball court tile product will provide the perfect finishing touch on any installation. As these polypropylene tiles are hard, providing a firm surface and a sure footing for players, having an underlayment with a bit of give to it is a smart idea.
Rubber material in the subfloor underlayment works especially well. Not only does the rubber give players a softer landing spot under the basketball sport tiles, but it also reduces the noise of athletes running and jumping on the hardcourt flooring.
At Greatmats, we also offer rolls of athletic flooring. These rolls have a vinyl top that looks like a wood grain finish that nicely resists wear and scuff marks from shoes. Attached to the vinyl layer is a 5 mm rubber base that delivers the cushioning athletes need to avoid joint soreness and injuries from long practice sessions. Some customers like the sport court roll option when they’re looking for a temporary floor that they can roll up after the event.
