Types of courts
A multipurpose court is a playing surface that integrates multiple sports into one surface by providing multiple sets of lines for different games. Multipurpose courts can be indoors or outdoors on almost any surface, it is just a matter of what lines are painted on the surface.
The different playing lines normally start with white and are the first sport/main sport and never break. A different line color is chosen for each sport to help distinguish which lines are for which sport. When any other sport crosses the main lines, they break an inch and a half instead of passing over the main sports lines.
Factors to consider
It is important to decide which sport you want to be the “main” sport of the court and what other sports’ playing lines are going to be featured. The colors that are desired to feature each sport should also be thought out ahead of time.
Budget & court quality are two important factors you should work on before planning for multipurpose court construction. These two factors may drag you in two opposite directions. High quality means higher budget whereas with limited budget, you may be worried about the quality.
