How to fix slippery outdoor courts

Outdoor courts like basketball courts are designed with specially made floors that provide traction, while still allowing athletes the ability to slide. However, over time, this traction can decrease significantly through corrosion and abrasion. As a result, anyone can slip and fall on the playing surface, which can lead to costly injuries.

Treat Basketball Court with Anti-Slip Coating

Courts like with outdoor basketball are designed to provide the needed tracking for athletes to move comfortably. However, dust, dirt and corrosion can cause courts to become sleek, which can lead to unfortunate slips and falls.

But how do you ensure your basketball, tennis or pickleball court has the needed traction? The best way to fix these types of surfaces is with a non-slip sports paint coating. However, it needs to be a specially formulated coating that is designed to work on outdoor courts and benefit the athlete. When the wrong type of coating is applied, it can affect movement and the friction of the surface, which can make the surfaces slippery and hazardous in damp and wet conditions. To avoid this, the anti-slip paint coating should contain certain texturing agents that provide good grip in both dry and wet conditions.

What level of slip-resistance is sufficient for courts?

Basketball, tennis and pickleball courts all require a very specific level of traction. While very high traction may be considered desirable, this is not always the case. If it is too high, players may struggle to turn and move. The level of slip resistance of the coating is mainly influenced by the size of the particles used to form the texture. At SlipDoctors, we recommend Dura Grip for outdoor courts like basketball courts, as it contains suitable particles that provide just the right amount of traction.
