7 Backyard Game Court Ideas for Your Home

If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own backyard game court but needed some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! There are plenty of ideas to choose from when installing a backyard athletic court, including different types of sports or hybrid courts that can accommodate a number of games.

C&C Courts can show you the easy and awesome ways you can help you and your family get more exercise and playtime in your own backyard.

Check out these seven backyard athletic court ideas for more athletic inspiration!

1. Traditional Basketball Court

If basketball is your game, a traditional basketball court in your backyard is the best way to go. The beauty of a basketball court is that you can do a half-court, or if you have room, a full court.

C&C Courts can set you up with a complete court with baskets on either end, and you can spend hours playing basketball with your friends and family. You don’t even have to play basketball all the time, either. Other games, such as HORSE or Around the World, can help you stay active and healthy.

When it comes to making the decision to install a basketball court, we know that cost is on your mind. There are a few factors that go into the cost of a backyard basketball court, including the site work, base material, surface, components, and installation.

To make the installation easier, you need a flat surface to work with, so the flatter your backyard, the better. Once our crew has prepped the area, they will lay the base material and surface materials that make up the court.

We can also customize the court’s colors. After that, we will install the accessories that make up your basketball court. Then, you can play to your heart’s content!

2. Combination Patio & Basketball Court

If you like a good patio but also want to include a game court in your backyard, then a hybrid patio-basketball court could be right up your alley. Since C&C Courts helps you customize your court, you can design it to match your home’s aesthetic while still allowing you to pull up some chairs and relax after playtime is over.

3. Full-Size Tennis Court

Do you prefer tennis over basketball? No problem! If you have a large backyard, it is possible to build a tennis court.

Tennis courts are built with the same idea in mind as a basketball court, which can also be customized to suit your preferences. You can improve your tennis game while enjoying the privacy and comfort of your home.

4. Keep Your Short Game On Par With a Putting Green

While driving ranges are great for improving your long game, your own personalized putting green can help you improve your short game. You can spend time outside in your backyard practicing your putt.

If you have the extra room, you could pair a putting green with a basketball half-court and take advantage of your backyard space. For the avid golfer, the short game is so important to perfect. There are so many ways to mess up a putt that every golfer should spend more time practicing their putt.

You can improve your putting game by building a practice routine (every day if possible) and following a few drills to help you improve your putt from every angle. The clock, ladder, and path drills can all help you putt better and stay on par.

5. Embrace the Cold With a Hockey Rink

Minnesota winters can be brutal, but why waste a nice, chilly day inside when you could be ice skating or playing hockey in your backyard? All that activity on your personal hockey rink will help you work up a sweat, and you won’t feel as cold.

Practice your ice skating moves or improve your slapshot! You can invite friends and family over to play a game of hockey without the cost of renting ice time at your local ice rink.

6. Have It All With a Multi-Sport Athletic Court

For the ultimate backyard fun, you can have a multi-sport athletic court built in your backyard. With C&C Courts’ multi-sport athletic courts, you can play over 15 sports in one place.

Become the most popular house in your neighborhood when you invite over your friends and neighbors for the ultimate volleyball, basketball, or pickleball tournament.

7. Don’t Forget About Pickleball

Pickleball is heating up in Minnesota, which is why you should join in on the fun. If you haven’t heard of it yet, pickleball is a sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong using a paddle. It was first created in 1965 in Washington State by three fathers who were looking for a new way to entertain their children.

Backyard pickleball courts are also becoming more popular because you’ll have access to a court any time you want! No more searching for a court or waiting in line to play.

Happy Customer Testimonial: The Taylors’ Basketball Court

The Taylors are a family in Coon Rapids, MN, that is benefitting from a game court by C&C Courts. Like with most big purchases, there is always a little apprehension about space and cost, and the Taylors felt the same way.

However, once they met Kevin, the representative from C&C Courts, their minds were put at ease. The Taylors were happy with how helpful Kevin was through the entire process from beginning to end.

Together with C&C Courts, the Taylors designed their ideal sport court for their backyard. Installation began, and despite bad weather, the C&C Court team was able to get the court installed during the course of one day. There was no mess left behind, and the court was pristine.

To celebrate their new basketball court, the Taylors held a 4th of July basketball tournament with some other families, which ended in a riotous good time.
