It is vital that the sports equipment is coordinated with the sports equipment and the dimensions of the sports equipment you purchase.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for any advice with regard to dimensions of courts, layouts, run-offs, typical compromises etc. We would also be pleased to prepare a coordination line marking drawing for your project. We charge £350 for the production of line marking drawings including as many iterations are necessary and we are pleased to offer a credit to that value if we are appointed to carry out the line marking work in your facility.

We can mark courts on any type of sports flooring – from vinyl / polymer type floors to solid timber floors including the necessary seal on top of the lines on timber floors.

We have set out below various governing body recommendations for different sports along with court marking drawing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Sport England have recently revised their guidance on the standard size of a 4 court sports hall.  Previously the standard dimensions were 33m x 18m x 7.6m.  The current guidance is now 34.5m x 20m x 7.5m.  At the same time, Sport England changed the "old" terminology for the different levels of sport: Recreational, Club, County / Regional, National / International, to: Community, Club, Premier and International.
