Customize Your Basketball Court Colors
To customize the look of your basketball court, and to differentiate your court from others, you can also do a two-color application. Universal Basketball has an amazing "Court Color Previewer" that allows you to view your possible color choices before buying. This is a sure way to know what your court will look like when finished.
You can get started by preparing the court surface. You have the choice of simply power washing the existing surface and applying two coats of color and then lines if the court has been previously color coated and your intent is just to redo the color. If the surface is new or requires major repairs you will need to apply a base coat using the MultiCover™ Acrylic Resurfacer before the color applications. The base coat is recommended to ensure a flawless application of MultiMate™ Color products while filling the chips and voids on the surface and hiding surface repairs such as filling cracks or leveling depressions. Once you have the surface ready you can install the MultiMate Color which comes in a variety of 14 color; 9 standard colors and 5 new specialty colors including yellow and orange.
How to Paint a Basketball Court:
Painting a basketball court can be as easy as 1-2-3; three people and 3 days to get your newly painted basketball court. First you should determine if a base coat is required. A base coat should be applied to all new asphalt and concrete basketball courts (for concrete, MultiAcrylic™ Adhesion Promoter should first be applied). As new asphalt and concrete basketball courts are quite porous and will absorb extra paint, MultiCover™ base coat will seal the new court surface and provide a nice tight finish on which to apply two coats of MultiMate™ Court Paint. If you have an existing basketball court and the surface is degraded and in need or repairs, we recommend applying a base coat after completing our repairs to seal and conceal the repairs, and bring the court surface back to like-new condition in preparation for court paint.

Applying MultiMate™ paint to a basketball court can be easily done by following our simply step-by-step instructions. If you purchase our MultiMate™ Concentrate with Sand (Ready-Mix also available for small areas), then you will need to batch the court paint with 50% clean water on site. (i.e. 10-gallon MultiMate Color with Sand, add 5-gallon of clean water). Court paint can be easily mixed in a 55-gallon drum by using a drill bit mixing paddle which we can ship with your order. We recommended you have the court paint mixed and ready to use at the beginning of a coating application so you will not have to stop the application process to mix more material. Once you begin the coating process, you should have sufficient material mixed to complete the coat being applied. You will likely apply 45-50 gallons of diluted (mixed) MultiMate™ per hour of application time.

Extremely Important Tip for The Team
Workers need to know that each coating of court paint (or basecoat) on a standard 50' x 84' basketball court will take approximately 2- 2 1/2 hours to complete once the first material is poured onto court.
THE IDEAL TEAM FOR APPLYING COATINGS:
Three people makes an ideal team. Each worker has a specific role.
Mixer: Mixes coatings to make sure material is always ready when needed.
Applicator: Walks continuously with the squeegee until entire surface area is completed.
Middleman: Pours material when required by Applicator. Returns empty pails to drum to be filled. Keeps court clean of falling leaves, debris, insects etc.
Applying Playing Lines:
Once you have completed basketball court paint coatings, the finishing touch is the line painting.
Applying lines on a basketball court surface is done one of two ways.
a) identifying each side of each line with a chalk-line and then laying masking tape by hand one roll at a time following the chalk-lines.
b) identifying the center of each line with a chalk-line and then laying two rolls of tape at the same time with a line taping machine.
A line taping machine has a center guide rod that protrudes from the front of the taping machine. When using, you simply follow the single centered chalk-line with the center guide. The use of a line taping machine and a long-handled 2" roller will cut the time to stripe a court by 60% to 70% of the time required by laying the tape by hand and applying line paint with a paint brush.
All basketball court lines are 2" wide. When the four nail holes (or permanent roofing nails) that were inserted in the court surface when you began are located, you will use them as reference points when working from the basketball court layout diagram.
A line taping machine is available at a rental fee of $75.00 USD ($105 CAD) plus UPS shipping costs to and from your site.
If you are laying the masking tape without a line taping machine, do not attempt if strong breezes are present or rain is imminent or forecast.
When masking the playing lines, tape right through the intersections. After all lines are masked, a utility knife and straight edge can be used to cut and remove the tape covering the intersections.
Applying Line Sealant and Line Paint
- Apply one coat of MultiSeal™ Line Tape Sealant to prevent line paint from bleeding under the masking tape. MultiSeal will assure razor sharp lines and that final professional touch to your completed basketball court.
- When MultiSeal™ line tape sealer is dry, apply two coats of MultiLine™ Textured White Line Paint using a 2" wide paint brush or 2" wide long-handled roller. Best results will be obtained with two even coats. Be sure each coat is dry before applying another coat.
- Remove the tape as soon as the lines are dry. Do not leave tape on surface over night. Use care when removing masking tape.
