5 Tips for Making Your Home Tennis Court More Versatile

A tennis court can be a great addition to your home, but you may want to build in some versatility. This can be especially important if you want the space to eventually add to the resale value of your home, and it can also make the court more enjoyable for your family or your guests. Here are some ideas to consider.

1. Add Basketball Nets

Rather than just putting in a plain tennis court, consider putting in a sport court. That allows you to play multiple sports on the same surface. In particular, if you are a basketball fan, you may want to add basket ball nets to either end of the court.

You don't necessarily even need to add poles. Rather, you can attach the nets to the fencing that goes around the perimetre of the court. Then, you can move the nets out of the way when not in use and use the space for other sports.

2. Make the Court Squash Friendly

If you like to play squash, you may want to build a tennis court that can double as a squash court. To do this, you need to enclose part or all of the court. Instead of putting up fences around the court, you need to put up walls. Then, you can bounce your squash balls off those walls as you play.

3. Put Floor Games on the Court Surface

For just a bit of variety, you may want to put some floor games on the surface of the tennis court. You could add games such as shuffle board, or you could focus on classic children's playground games such as hopscotch or four square.

If you're feeling especially creative, you could even make up your own games and have the tennis court installer paint lines as needed on your court.

4. Consider Pickleball

Pickleball is growing in popularity throughout Australia, and if you are one of its many fans, you may want to add some pickleball lines on your tennis court. The pickleball court is slightly smaller than a tennis court, so it's easy to include the extra lines, and you can just use the tennis net whilst playing.

5. Paint Lines for Street Hockey

In addition to or instead of some of the ideas above, you may want to add lines for street hockey. This is just like ice hockey, but you play on a hard surface. There's no reason to worry about keeping ice cold. You can play in trainers or inline skates.
