The most common questions about tennis, basketball, & multi-sport court construction and surfacing.

How much does a tennis court cost & how much does tennis court resufacing cost?

We often receive requests from clients seeking ballpark figures on new tennis, pickleball, basketball court construction & existing tennis court & sports resurfacing / restoration. Quite honestly, it’s a very difficult thing to provide as there are so many variables that impact the price such as; geographic location, grade plan of the land, court access / logistics, fencing, lighting, surfacing, accessories and so on. However, we find ourselves below still answering the question as best as possible:

  • In Ontario, a typical new tennis court construction project from start to finish starts at $100,000+. It’s possible to be below this ballpark figure however some discussion around forgoing certain features will have to occur
  • On the tennis court and other sports resurfacing / restoration side a price per court may range from $15,000 to $30,000+ based on the current court condition, how many courts in total require attention and our recommendation for ensuring upon departure the longevity of the surface will be maintained.
