i've been wanting to make a basketball court in my backyard but idk what to make it out of. the problem is that asphalt and concrete are not options because i live on a mountain and there is a pretty steep slope getting up to the place where i want the court to go so a truck cant get up there. Also i've been told my my parents that they aren't going to pay a whole lot for it to be done, so something preferably cheap would be nice or else i have to pay for it. thanx

I don't remeber what its called but there is a material thats like hard fome and it snappes together like a puzzle. Alot of gyms use it. I will try to think of the name of it. Try searching gym supplies.

Well considering it needs to be level, do u have a level surface? I dont see y concrete isnt an option, just buy the powder stuff and a wheelbarrow. Then just add the right amount of water. Sure its gonna be a pain but still.

yea i have a level surface b/c i have a swingset up there right now since i was little....and yea concrete would be a huge pain in everypart of my body, but i just might have to use that.

vs3-if u could find out what that stuff is that would be great. but it has to mithstand any weather all yr round

anything else?

^the personlization part of those tiles seems so awesome. Wonder if that would be a great floor for some pb,:questionicon:

you can buy slabs of concrete that are like 3X3. you could use those and just fill in the cracks with something.
