Every basketball fan or player, amateur or professional, imagines themselves playing on their dream court. Dunking the ball on professional-grade hoops and dribbling on that smooth floor is out of this world. Now you can have your very own impressive court from the best backyard basketball court supplier in Brisbane.

A basketball court isn’t just for pros anymore, have one installed for a budding player or even for group family recreation time. Backyard basketball courts aren’t just for residential use, consider one for your local community centre or school. Whatever your goals, there is something at Impressive Courts that will suit your needs and budget.
One of the first things you’ll need to decide when choosing your perfect basketball court is the size. Do you want a small practice area, a half-court, or a full size version? In this article, we’ll look at the different court sizes available, and the advantages of each.

What size basketball court should you choose?

The size of the basketball court you choose depends on the purpose of the court, the space you have available, and your budget.

Full basketball courts

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) measures a full basketball court at 28 m x 15 m. This sized court provides the perfect space for athletes to practice, drill and compete, whether at home or with their team.
A full court is particularly useful for players who will be competing at high levels, teams that need to practice on a professional-sized court, or for schools and sports clubs who will be hosting competitions.

Half basketball courts

A full basketball court makes for some great professional practice – but what if you don’t have that much space available? That’s where the half basketball court comes into play.
A half-court measures 15 m x 11 m, making it an easier size to install if space is tight, or for a backyard. While the half-size court doesn’t provide the same opportunity for competition, it still gives plenty of space for training and playing.
This size is most preferable if you want a sports court for home/family use and anticipate having fewer players, since a full-court game usually requires more players. This size is perfect for 1-1 games with the family, practising baskets and anyone who was contemplating the idea of just adding a hoop to your home’s roof. This looks brilliant once installed and will provide years and years of entertainment at the next family BBQ.

DIY basketball courts

It gets better: as well as the full and half basketball courts, Impressive courts provide a variety of smaller courts to fit your space. These are great for competing one-on-one and practising free-throw shooting at home.
Our most popular options for backyard basketball courts are the 9 m x 5 m (to fit the “three-point line”) and the 6 m x 4 m (to fit the “free-throw line”). Complete your home basketball court with a professional grade and high-quality hoop, we have loads in stock to choose from.

We offer a special DIY package, so you can design and create your own as a Do-it-Yourself project if you so wish. For a DIY project, you get a package of:
