A Detailed Look into Indoor Basketball Court Steel Buildings

Building an Indoor Basketball Court With Steel Buildings

While sudden weather changes can ruin your game on outdoor basketball courts, indoor basketball courts are a great way to keep up with your basketball games all year round. No matter what the weather is, with indoor basketball courts you can forget missing practice sessions.

An indoor basketball court can use any of the conventional materials like wood-frame or a brick-laid building for its construction, but a steel building has its own benefits to offer.

Steel buildings last a lot longer than other customary buildings. Your indoor court will last for decades without the need to replace your steel building. Moreover, they are weatherproof, come with a great warranty from the manufacturer, and they won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

The indoor basketball court steel building comes in various sizes. A steel building basketball court can be customized into different sizes, starting from 80 x 100ft and going up to 200 x 400ft. When the building is erected other features such as flooring, paint, sporting equipment, etc will be added to finish the project.

Indoor Basketball Dimensions

The size of the indoor basketball court depends on how much space you have to dedicate to the facility. The court dimensions are measured by length, width, and height.

Length and Width

The standard basketball court measures 94 ft. in length and 50 ft. in width. These measurements can be reduced for clubs, community centers, or areas with less space.

You need extra space for amenities for staff, fans, and athletes. You can also accessorize your building and install screens and sound systems for organizing bigger events.

An indoor basketball court steel building usually comes in the following sizes:

  • 100 x 100ft
  • 100 x 200ft
  • 80 x 100ft
  • 200 x 400ft

These measurements can be easily customized depending on the court size you need and the space you want for bleachers, padding, sports equipment, and other amenities and facilities.

For a mini basketball court or a half-court, you can reduce the measurements, while for professional basketball practices, no compromises should be made on the size of the court.

Another factor to consider before deciding on a court size is your budget. The full court requires a bigger budget than a half or reduced court.


The minimum standard height for an indoor basketball court is 22.96 ft. (7m). But the height can be increased; in fact, the higher, the better.

The height of the court also alters the total cost needed to build the court. The higher you keep the ceiling, the higher the cost goes.

Features Needed to Complete Your Basketball Court

Selecting the dimensions of the steel building for the basketball court is just the beginning. Once the steel building is erected, then comes the interior of the indoor court. The metal building is just the exterior of the court. The interior includes remaining features like flooring, basketball equipment, paint, bleachers, amenities, and more.

1. Flooring

Flooring is the foremost crucial part of the court. You don’t want a simple cement slab! The entire game depends on the flooring quality, or should we say, flooring is a game-changer! The material of the flooring should be sturdy so that the ball bounces smoothly and consistently. Some suitable flooring materials are:


  • Maple
  • Oak, tigerwood, or other hardwood floorings
  • Synthetic plastic flooring
  • Green basketball court

2. Indoor Basketball Hoop

Usually, mini hoops with adjustable height are preferred for indoor activities.

3. Paint

Metal buildings are best painted with acrylic latex paint. This paint is specifically designed for metal. Paint not only improves the visibility of the building but also increases its durability.

4. Bleachers

Any sports facility is incomplete without fans and supporters. Bleachers are a customary part of every basketball court, whether big or small; the court should accommodate some spectators.

5. Basketball Equipment

Facilities to hold basketball equipment are also an essential part of court interiors.
