Do Backyard Sport Courts Add Value To Your Home?

There are many home exterior projects and additions that homeowners can implement to increase the value of their homes. While new roofing and other renovations may add some value to your home when you’re ready to sell, how many of them can actually be enjoyed by you and your family for the time being? According to a study by houselogic, swimming pools may not be the best investment when you’re looking to add value. Therefore, if you are looking for a fun way to add some value to your home it is definitely worth considering an outdoor sports court!

How Backyard Sport Courts Increase Your Home’s Value

At 360 SportsScapes, we specialize in the installation of residential basketball courts, backyard putting greens, backyard batting cages, multi-courts, and other sportscapes for your property. One of the most common questions our basketball court contractors get asked is whether or not sports courts are a good investment in regards to home value. Well, we’re happy to share that a backyard sport court is an addition to your home that will not only bring years of enjoyment to your family, which of course is priceless, but will also increase the value of your home. Here are a few ways how:

Low-Maintenance

Swimming pools are not only expensive to install, but require very intensive and costly maintenance. With a backyard sports court, maintenance is a breeze and inexpensive! Unlike traditional court surfaces, 360 SportScapes are constructed with quality tile that is 100 percent anti­microbial and resistant mold build-up. Maintenance is as easy as clearing leaves and an occasional power washing to remove dirt and dust. 

Because these sports courts are durable and long-lasting, they’ll still be in great shape if and when the time comes to sell your home and will help boost its value.

A Solution To Your Landscaping Woes

The less lawn you have, the more you’ll save on both time and from having to deal with lawn maintenance. Depending on the size of the sports court you install in your backyard, there may not be as much work required when it comes to landscaping. Plus, sports courts can be designed to fit and enhance your landscaping, making it a win-win!

An Eco-Friendly Addition

More and more homeowners are looking for ways to make their yards more environmentally-friendly — which typically translates to using less water. Unlike traditional court surfaces, our sports courts are not only constructed out of eco-friendly materials and the installation will result help lower water usage in your yard. Many homebuyers look exclusively for homes that have green features, and a sports court certainly contributes to an eco-friendly yard.

A Variety of Uses

Can’t decide which sports court will bring the biggest return? Why not invest in all of them? With a backyard multi-sport court you can bring an entire athletic complex to your yard. With a multi-sport court, you can add your favorite game lines, designs, and logos. Because these courts can easily be converted between basketball, volleyball, tennis, and other sport courts, there certainly will be value added to your property.

Keep Your Kids Safe With 360 SportScapes

Keep Your Kids Safe With 360 SportScapes
In our last blog we discussed the benefits of having a backyard sports court in regards to your health. If you happened to miss that click here:
Today we are going to discuss how having a 360 Sports Court in your home or yard increases the safety for your kids. So Mom’s… listen up!

 

Imagine its a warm Saturday evening in the summer. You have cleaned up dinner and the kids disappeared an hour ago to go play with their friends after dinner. Your oldest idolizes the Celtics and your youngest idolizes the oldest so you know they are off with their friends playing a game of H.O.R.S.E. with Johnny down the street. It’s getting darker and darker outside and you feel the first twinge of worry. Your partner calms you down. An hour passes. No kids have come tumbling into the house. Another hour.
Now you are in a full blown panic. Every parent knows the feeling. That heart dropping to the floor feeling when your kids don’t come home when they’re supposed to or when one of your kid’s friends comes running in to tell you they are hurt and you have to run to the park dreading the worst.

 

Now imagine that same warm Saturday evening in the summer. Dinner is done and the kids disappeared an hour ago to go play with their friends. You check the time because it’s starting to get dark. You look outside and there they are, dribbling the ball. Your oldest teaching your youngest how to do a layup on your backyard basketball court.

 

Raising kids in this day and age is not easy. A parent has to battle with their children with too much screen time and yet balancing that with not feeling secure that you don’t know where your children are, because apparently it’s not “cool” to text your parents every hour. At 360 SportScapes it is our goal to get the kids off the tablet, get outside and get moving all while helping their parents feel confident that their children are safe.

 

We don’t need to list out statistics about your children’s safety when it comes to strangers, just tune in to your favorite true crime podcast. We won’t dive into it but about 2,100 missing children reports are filed every day in the U.S. and no parent needs to go through the living nightmare of not knowing where their children are. Instead of your kids riding their bikes down to the park we recommend installing a (mini) soccer field made of highly durable and low maintenance artificial turf in your backyard. Or maybe your children love to ice skate, we can help with that too.

 

With your 360 SportScape you not only will have your children playing safely in your own backyard but you will also be available should any sports related injury occur.  Decrease the chances of sports related injuries by taking the hoop out of your cement driveway and installing your own backyard basketball court. 360 SportScape’s tiles are shock absorbent and gentler on falls than asphalt and concrete. Our backyard courts are made to be comfortable on joints and reduce the impact of falls.

 

More than 170,000 children ages 5 to 14 were treated in hospital emergency rooms for basketball-related injuries, 88,000 children were treated for soccer related injuries and 110,000 children were treated for softball and baseball injuries. Should an injury occur you can rest assured that you are available to your child as soon as possible when they are playing sports at your residence.
We are parents too, which is why it is so important to us to protect future generations while still allowing them to participate in the sports they love. Our dream is for parents to rest comfortably at night knowing their children are safe in their own backyard while also participating in the sports they love. At 360 SportScapes we build our multi-sports courts with the family in mind. We don’t want to just morph your landscape, we want to help you build a community focused on health, safety, and security.

How Having A Backyard Sports Court Can Improve Your Health

It’s no secret that we are big sports and exercise enthusiasts. We love a good neighborhood game of pick- up or H.O.R.S.E., but our love goes deeper than just the game. Playing a quick game in the backyard with your friends isn’t just fun, but it also is keeping you and your family healthy. Whether your sport is tennis, golf, pickleball, hockey or basketball playing for just 30-60 minutes is improving every aspect of your life.

Backyard Athletic Courts Can Help Increase Physical Activity

Obesity is a known epidemic in our country but you may not know that physically active children are 1/10 as likely to be obese. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children are 40% more likely to score higher on their test scores, 15% more likely to go to college, make 7-8% higher annual funds, have lower health costs, and are at reduced risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes. Children are spending more time in front of their phones than they are outside playing with their friends and this is causing a nationwide health crisis. At 360 SportScapes we believe in giving everyone an outlet to make them happier and healthier. Backyard basketball courts and batting cages are ideal ways to get your kids out of the house and get them exercising! Pickleball and putting greens are a great activity if running and jumping are not comfortable for you anymore.

 

360 Sports Courts Are Gentle On Joints

Studies show that less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity every day. Having the convenience of a sports court in or near your home can help you stay active and healthy. All our courts are made with your safety, comfort, and playability in mind. Research shows that the shock absorbing tiles of a 360 Sports Court are significantly less damaging than cement. Jumping, running and falling are all apart of any good basketball game and our courts protect against concussions and other serious injuries. Our tennis courts and pickleball courts are made with the same shock-absorbant floor, so no matter what age you are, you can play a stress free game.

So get out, get moving and have fun! Whether you are 3 or 90 or any age in between, having a basketball court, tennis court, batting cage, or putting green in your home or business will help you play safely and comfortably.
