There are many options, probably more than you even realize, for the base of an outdoor basketball court. I am sure you realize that those options change the cost to build an outside basketball court. I want to dig into the options for the base and the subsequent costs of those different bases.

Blacktop Surface

It is easy to care for and is not impacted by extreme temperatures. If you are considering installing asphalt, you should consider that you need gravel, leveling, excavation, a base, and a topcoat. The cost of asphalt runs around $3 to $4 per square foot(includes material and labor), which equals between $14,000 to $18,000 for a full court.

Snapping Tiles

They are exactly what they sound like they are which is tiles that snap into place and create a grid. These types of bases are easy and quick to install. These tend to provide a softer place to land, so there are less injuries. However, you still need concrete or some other base underneath of the snapping tiles.

This type of base costs $3,5 to $4,5 for pre-painted tiles per square foot. That brings you a total of $17,000 to $22,000 for a full-court and $3,200 to $4,100 for a 3 on 3 court. Keep in mind, these prices are for the base only. There are some other alternative base options. You could consider a portable base as an alternative to a permanent base.

Cost to build an indoor basketball court?

The cost of an indoor basketball court ranges from $16,650 to $70,700. Houzz gives a less pocket-friendly cost estimate – from $150,000 to $250,000– but this includes all indoor features you could think of.

Is An Indoor Basketball Court More Expensive Than An Outdoor Court?

The cost estimates given by HomeAdvisor for outdoor and indoor basketball courts are pretty close. An outdoor basketball court-sized at 94 x 50 feet would cost you $17,200 to $76,000, while indoor court estimates range from $16,650 to $70,700.

So which kind of court will cost higher depends more on the materials and contractors you choose. But an outdoor court will probably take less time to build.
