Netball Court Resurfacing is a fast and demanding sport, which requires a durable surface to reduce injury risks. When a netball court becomes damaged, it may be time for an upgrade to improve playability and the overall appearance of your sports space.
Netball resurfacing can involve replacing the existing surface with a fresh new layer of flooring materials. The choice of material will depend on the level of use and type of sport that is played. Typical options include polymeric, needle punch carpets and tarmac surfacing. Each of these has different characteristics which will suit a particular sport or level of play. Polymeric surfaces are favored by England Netball as they offer shock-absorbent layers to help reduce player fatigue. Needle punch carpets are hardwearing and offer high levels of durability, ideal for club-level play.

Resurfacing can also include a fresh coating of nonslip paint to improve safety. These colored anti-slip paints are available in a variety of colors to suit your sports facility and can be applied to any hard surface. Many of the surfacing and paints that we use are porous, which means they comply with Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) regulations. This helps to prevent flooding and puddles in wet weather, which can create a dangerous playing environment.
Dubbo Regional Council recently undertook a project to resurface the netball courts at Nita McGrath, with funding from Round Four of the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund. The resurfacing upgrade upgraded the facilities to Netball NSW competition standards and corrected cracking in the surfaces, which posed a risk of trips and falls for players.
