Why You Should Consider a Multi-Use Sport Court for your Backyard

Are you a homeowner that is looking to provide your children or extended family more fun when not working or in school? Maybe you are an athlete yourself and want to provide yourself and your loved ones an area to improve skills? If either of these applies to you, your family should consider the addition of a multi-use sports court for your backyard! As the leading expert​in building and installing these types of courts, we wanted to provide our site visitors a resource regarding the advantages of having one built for your home!

Staying Fit and Building Athletic Skillset

Whether you are looking to stay fit or ​provide an opportunity for your children that play sports competitively​…the installation of a multi-use sports court is proven to help improve skills in several ways. To start, you or your family will have ​unlimited and private access to an exceptional court​ anytime. From working on their basketball shot or backhand, access to train will never be ​the same with your own custom sports court.

Secondly, it is proven that athletes that play multiple sports as opposed to just focusing on one tend to perform better. The reason this occurs, especially in younger athletes, is because the act of playing two different sports works different muscle groups. It also gives athletes a better understanding of their body’s ability to move. One may be surprised to learn that the types of quick motions in tennis or pickleball easily translate to the basketball court and vice-versa. The ability to explore other sports also ensures athletes do not get worn out and breeds competitive nature.

Types of Sports You Can Play on a Multi-Use Court

Depending on your preferences and court size there are a wide variety of games and sports to play on a 360 SportScapes multi-use sports court​s. When first setting up the court, we will inquire about the expected main use of the court. The two types of we usually see are Basketball and Tennis courts. Additional lines can then be added! Check out the wide variety of additional court lines we can easily add!

Backyard Basketball Court Building Process for Florida Homeowners 

When you decide you need a court built for your home, a few things need to happen first. Step one is to determine which size court fits your needs and the available space you have in your backyard. Next, a concrete foundation needs to be poured which will allow the court to be sturdy and long-lasting. Some of the courts we create already have existing foundations which allow us to strictly resurface. After the foundation is poured, 360 SportScapes experts install your custom color court surface securely to the foundation. During this time, the hoop and other add-on accessories are also installed.

Backyard Ice Hockey Rink Games for your Family

Are you considering building or contracting a company to build your family a backyard ice rink? If you are concerned that there are only a limited number of ways your rink will be used, that should be the least of your concern. Here at 360 SportScapes, we have installed hundreds of ice rinks for families across the East Coast. In addition to the exceptional games of pick-up hockey that are played on our rinks, look at some of the creative games people play on backyard ice rinks!

Broomball

Broomball is a great game played in gym classes across the US. Some adaptations of the game are played on a basketball court but those lucky enough with access to an ice rink can enjoy the game on ice! Broomball can be played with or without ice skates. Using a small rubber ball similar to a dodgeball and a broom, teams of 4 or 5 players each compete to push the ball into goals. Teams can elect to use a goalie or have all their players on the offensive. Look at this article outlining the rules.

Freeze Skate & Tag

Freeze Skate involves a DJ and a group of eager skaters! The perfect game for a parent watching from inside the warmth and comfort of their home! The DJ will play music (holiday-themed optional), which will prompt those playing to begin skating. When the music is paused, everyone must come to a freeze. Those who freeze make it to the next round. Those still moving are eliminated from the round.

Freeze tag differs from traditional freeze tag on land. In this version of the game, the ‘Freeze’ refers to the game being played on ice. Select someone to be ‘it’ and let the game of tag on ice begin!

Tic Tac Toe

This game is perfect for strong skaters that are also competitive. With either teams or in games of 1 on 1, a tic tac toe grid is set up on one end of the ice. This grid can be spray painted into the ice or even outlined with snow. Skaters race towards the grid with one game piece in their hand. The game pieces can be small towels, hockey pucks, or even shoes. Skaters then drop the piece in a spot then skate back to either grab another piece or tag their team member in to drop the next piece! Speed is the key to this game as there are no ‘turns’ unlike traditional tic tac toe.

Skate Races

Have a lot of speedy skaters on the ice? Create speed races for your family! If your children range in ages, create racing ‘handicaps’ to say, with slower skaters starting ahead of those faster to make the races more competitive.

Dodgeball

Ideally, this should be played with softer, foam-filled dodgeballs and if you are organizing this game, be sure players are on the same skate/ size level. Using the mid-line as a boundary for both teams, skaters pick up the balls and fire them towards each other to hit opponents. A hit opponent is considered out, and if you catch the ball thrown by your opponent, the thrower of the said ball is out.

Curling

360 SportScapes can add curling point zones directly into the ice providing you, your family, and neighborhood a competitive game that everyone can play. Never curled before? Play once and you will see why people dedicate themselves to achieving Olympic status in the sport!

Ice Rink Skating Skills Activities

Our rinks have also been used by families or individuals looking to improve their overall skating skills in general. This may be a hockey player performing drills to increase their speed skating forward or backward or a figure skater growing their repertoire.

Backyard Ice Rink

Benefits to Having your own Backyard Ice Hockey Rink

New England homeowners that are not fortunate enough to live near a lake or pond have been creating and building their own backyard ice hockey rinks for years. Low winter temperatures allow New Englanders to enjoy and full winter of skating. Some homeowners take on the burden of building their own rink, but this can lead to frustration if not properly built. 360 SportScapes offers New England homeowners expert ice rink building services. We wanted to write a blog for our website visitors highlighting the benefits of having your own backyard ice hockey rink!

Personal Rink Time

If you are an avid skater or ice hockey player, you know fully that ice time can be hard to come by and expensive. Furthermore, anytime you can get on the ice, it is rare to be completely alone to train, improve skills, or enjoy skating. Homeowners with an ice rink constructed in their backyard will not have to experience these issues.

Keep your Children Close

Winter in New England is a time for children to play in the snow and continue exploring the neighborhood. With shorter days, limited daylight & icy road conditions, it’s best to keep your children and their neighborhood friends nearby. There is no better way to keep your children in the backyard than with a fully outfitted backyard ice hockey rink! Your backyard will be the talk of the neighborhood! Just make sure you buy enough hot cocoa mix for all the neighborhood kids who will be frequenting your backyard for hockey games.

COVID-19 Rink Closures

Indoor rinks across the country continue to close due to COVID-19 spikes. Having your personal backyard rink allows you full, uninhibited access to skating all winter long. Having an outdoor backyard ice rink helps keep your circle close and enables you to safely practice social distancing.

Improve Skating & Hockey Skills

Are your children pursuing a competitive figure skating or ice hockey career? Even if they do not go pro, other opportunities can arise from exceptional talent on the ice. In terms of ice hockey, 360 SportScapes can outfit your backyard rink with regulation hockey lines, netting, siding, and goals. Furthermore, we can install lighting to expand how much quality ice time you and your children have to refine their skills. Provide your children the opportunity to grow their skillset with their very own backyard ice rink.

Backyard Hockey Rink Installation FAQ 

Are you considering installing a backyard ice rink for your home this winter? If this is your first time, there is no doubt you have questions before getting started. 360 SportScapes is New England’s leading ice rink installation professionals. Please continue reading to see some of the questions we are asked when we start planning an ice rink build with our customers! 

Does the area need to be completely flat to create a Backyard Ice Rink? 

When it comes to building an ice rink in your backyard, the flatter the area is, the better, but it does not need to be completely flat. If the site is on a slope or uneven ground, 360 SportScapes uses its landscaping abilities to create a completely flat surface. When necessary, we build retaining walls to size to ensure your ice rink is 100% safe and compliant.  

How Deep Should a Backyard Ice Rink be? 

This can depend on a few different factors, but a general rule of thumb is ice thickness greater than 4 inches is recommended. When you consult with a 360 SportScapes ice rink installation representative, they will review your yard and the best thickness required to get the most out of your ice rink. 

How long does it take for a backyard Ice Rink freeze? 

This can depend on several factors but primarily, and of course, the temperature outside. We recommend getting started on building ice rinks before the first freeze, which means for clients in New England, it means late Fall. This way, as the cold weather hits, the rink is filled, and its core temperature will dip below the freezing point. 

Is it challenging to build a Backyard Ice Rink? 

Many first-time ice rink builders run into issues with creating a level surface, retaining water before the first freezing, or the frame of the rink moving after the first freeze. Naturally, the more experience in this type of work improves ice rink builders’ chances of succeeding the first time. Due to the cost of materials and the limited time frame required to get the rink completed, we recommend partnering with 360 SportScapes for your backyard ice rink building. Partnering with a professional like 360 SportScapes is proven to save you time and money in the long run. 

 360 SportScapes: New England’s Top Ice Rink Installation Expert 

We have constructed hundreds of ice rinks throughout New England and have the process down to a science. If you want a hassle-free, reliable ice rink that is done right the first time, save yourself the time and hassle of YouTube videos and runs to Home Depot by contacting 360 SportScapes

We offer six different backyard putting green packages to prospective clients. Continue reading to learn more about these packages to decide which one is best for your backyard.

Build the Right Green for your Backyard

When deciding on a backyard putting green, you need to assess the existing space in your backyard. This includes assessing the pitch/slope as you will want your putting green on even ground. If your backyard is naturally hilly, we can construct a retaining wall to make your backyard putting green a reality. 

An additional factor to consider is how your family will be using the area around the green. If your backyard is limited with space and you have small children, you most likely want them playing on your green. This is why we offer a range of sizes for backyard greens we install for our clients.

Backyard Putting Green for Smaller Backyards

Our Par, Birdie, and Eagle packages are ideal for small backyards. Ranging from 300 square feet to 750 square feet (these can range in style and shape). In addition to being perfect for smaller backyards, the fringe is included in the square footage so you can master your short game.

Backyard Putting Greens for Larger Yards

For larger backyards or individuals not concerned with taking up all your backyard space with a putting green, our Hole in One, Masters, and Green Jacket packages are perfect for those who take their game seriously. From 1000 square feet to 1500 square feet of putting green and fringe, our Masters and Green Jacket packages are customized with life-like artificial or synthetic grass that replicates the grass you would find on a golf course putting green. This provides a professional level putting green that you would find on any of the world’s finest courses.

Putting Green Features

Benefits of Installing a Basketball court in Your Backyard

Are you a homeowner considering the installation of a backyard basketball or sports court for your property? Here at 360  SportScapes, constructing high-quality backyard basketball courts is our specialty. We wanted to write a quick blog on the additional advantages of a custom basketball court, aside from being able to shoot hoops 24/7. Continue reading to learn more!

Personal Gym & Workout Area 

One of the more popular reasons homeowners opt to install a basketball court is to have a work out area on their property. In addition to shooting hoops or playing full games of basketball, the Sport Court can be a platform for other workouts. From cone drills and sprints to dynamic High-Intensity Interval Training or Plyometrics, you and your family will always have a reliable, consistent surface to lead a healthy lifestyle. 

Children’s Athletics, Safety and Teamwork 

Some of the biggest beneficiaries to your new addition will be your children, (and those in the neighborhood) as they will get the most use out of your backyard basketball court. The game will take place at your house and not at some faraway park or in the street, with the court being right in your backyard. The basketball court will provide your children with the ability to improve not only their basketball game but also improve teamwork and communication skills all in the safe confines of your home. 

Patio Surface for Outdoor Events

An undervalued aspect of installing a basketball court to your backyard is the ability to transform the court into a space for outdoor events. With the simple addition of a rented tent, you now have an even, sturdy surface to place tables, chairs, and even a stage if your party calls for it. We have seen people transform their backyard court into an area for graduation parties, anniversary celebrations, summer cookout spaces, and more!

Increase Home Value

With any home renovation, the question of return on investment always comes into mind. A professionally installed basketball court immediately increases your home value. Regardless of it is a full-court with two hoops or just a half-court setup, homeowners can trust to see their money back upon selling the home. The increase in home value alongside its benefits for homeowners, while residing in the home, makes installing a court a no-brainer.

Minimal Maintenance

Here at 360 SportScapes, we build beautiful courts that are meant to last. By using ‘Fast Drain Open Grid Surface’ technology, rain and snowmelt away and dry to quickly. Additionally, our antimicrobial tiles protect against mold build-up, unlike conventional courts. Each of our courts comes with a 15 Year Guarantee and a 25-30 year life expectancy.
