Yes, you can. One of our DreamCourt™ specialist will need to inspect the site to make sure the asphalt is in good condition. Things we are looking for are pot holes, large cracks or humps. Our team may need to perform some repairs using grinders and self-leveler to fix up any court areas that might affect the play-ability.
We understand that building a concrete slab can be expensive, logistically impossible for some and or councils just simply doesn’t allow. If you are unable to construct a concrete slab then we would recommend our premium synthetic grass options. Our Synthetic grass is the next best thing. Please note this option is only Available in just New South Wales and Victoria at this stage. If interested we can organise for 1 of our DreamCourt™ specialist to come out and perform a free site inspection at your property. Simply give the team a call on 1300 690 991 or email email@example.com to arrange.
Absolutely, DreamCourts™ offer some of the best warranties on the market. They range from 8 years to 15 years dependent upon the tile model selected. Please see our warranty page for further information www.dreamcourts.com.au/warranty-information/
One of the best features of DreamCourt™ sports tiles is they are easily repaired/replaced. We normally supply, with each order, a few spare tiles so that damaged tiles can be quickly removed and replaced. No expert required. If there happens to be anchors in or around the repair site, all that needs to happen is the centre tile cap lifted off using a small flat head screw driver and then with a normal Phillips screw driver you can then unscrew the visible anchor temporarily, whilst you perform the replacement. Simply Click the damaged tile out and replace with the new tile. If you have ran out of tiles or require some extra tiles posted out to you then please give the team a call on 1300 690 991.
Apart from regular sweeping or pressure cleaning to remove dirt or debris, there are no maintenance required unlike other surfaces such as synthetic grass or acrylic. DreamCourt™ tiles (similar to gutter guard) acts like a filter whereby fine sediment can pass through the porous tiles and the water will navigate majority of the dust or fine dirt away based on the natural slope of the hard surface below. All the course material on top can then simply be brushed, hosed or blown away. Overtime the only thing that may need re-application is the painted linemarking and logos.
Yes, they have been independently tested by several audio labs that have measured concrete vs DreamCourt™ tiles using a fully inflated basketball. DreamCourt™ tiles on average reduce the noise by up to 30%.

If you are looking to undertake the construction and or project management of the concrete slab in preparation for the DreamCourt™ tiles then we recommend the following:
1) Concrete slab is to be a minimum of 100mm thick with reinforced meshing.
2) Helicopter or smooth trowel finish is acceptable
3) 25 MPA concrete strength is recommended
4) Minimum fall required. Just enough for water to navigate away, without puddling from occurring.
5) Try to install the ring anchor at the same time as constructing the slab.
6) Allow ideally 1 week of concrete curing before installing your DreamCourt™ and or DreamHoop™.

If your DreamCourt™ was to permanently be installed over an existing synthetic surface then we would not recommend this. The reason why we don’t recommend this is because the ball bounce reduces too much. The interlocking tiles require a hard surface to work at their optimum and the problem with synthetic grass is it provides a soft layer in between tile and base. We recommend to pull back the synthetic to the concrete below and then re-apply the tiles.
Yes, within reason, you can drive on the tiles. The tiles are rated to 3 tonne rolling load pressure when anchored and professionally installed. Rolling load means when it is continually rolling and not stationary (dead load). We don’t recommend to have cars or trucks heavier or nearly 3 tonne sitting on the court for an extended period of time. If you intend to use the product on a driveway or a high traffic area for cars and trucks then I would recommend going with the EliteX tile as this is thicker, heavier with a more heavy duty anchoring system.
DreamCourts™ currently has 3 different Premium Sport tiles:
DC Multi is our entry level tile that comes with silicon based cushioned feet for a premium bounce. With the textured surface double layered technology that assists with providing a quality grip and is suitable for large and small ball sports. It’s a versatile tile that can be used in a commercial or domestic multi sports environment. This tile also comes with a standard 8 year warranty and can be locked down to the pavement to avoid movement and theft.
ElitePro is our intermediate tile that is suitable for large ball sports only. The major difference with this tile is the surface is a single layer technology that is more suited to large ball sport play. It is currently used by the NBL 3×3 Pro circuit. This tile comes standard with a 10 year warranty. Additional features is the lock down anchor system and cushioned feet technology. More cushions are included with this model vs DC multi.
EliteX is the No1 basketball tile on the market. Recently introduced into the DC range with an improvement to the bounce quality, larger cushions, heavy duty anchoring, thicker and heavier so it can withstand heavy use and traffic. This tile has had an improvement made to the grip rating and noise reduction features. It is mainly suited to large ball sports only.

Based on your Design we manually tape up the court and paint on the lines as per the design in the factory and not on site. The only time we may paint on site is for Commercial jobs or strange court shapes.
Once we have the correct and approved Logo file we manufacture a stencil and then paint on the Logo directly on the tile.
DreamCourts™ Premium flooring has an extensive list of benefits compared to concrete, including:
Sound Reduction – DreamCourts™ flooring considerably reduces the noise on the court.
Bounce – DreamCourts™ have been designed with ball sports in mind. All courts offer exceptional bounce – closely resembling a professional indoor experience.
Convenience – Instead of travelling to your local park or stadium now you get the ‘Pro’ experience at home in your backyard.
Drainage – DreamCourts™ premium flooring allows water to easily move through the tile, flowing rapidly to the hard surface below where the water freely runs off keeping the courts – puddle free and quick drying. Perfect for die-hard players that don’t want to wait!
Anti-slip – DreamCourts™ flooring has been designed to provide maximum traction through all weather conditions.
Aesthetics – Are you ready to show-off your court to your kids, friends, neighbours and family? DreamCourts™ are not just a great playing surface, they also add to the look and value of your property.
