The Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is the very first impression of a property before anyone steps inside it.  For instance, when a person steps inside their new home for the first time, the site he gets before stepping into his home is the curb appeal.

So, keeping the appearance in mind, how will your Pickleball court’s color theme match with that of your property and house?

Will the colors you paint your court complement your beautiful property?   The answer lies in the color and maintenance of your court.

Traditional colors of the court

Most people tend to choose common colors for their Pickleball court.  Blue and green are the most common colors.

However, according to USAPA, the courts can be painted with any color but it has to contract with the lines of the court and of course with the ball.

Jeff Gearheart said that in hotter climates, light-colored courts are more solar reflective and more in demand.  He states that a light grey court could be 40 degrees cooler than a dark shade court. Pickleball balls are generally yellow or lime green.  Having court colors that contrast this will result in better play for the players.

You can use reds, purples, blues and greens or any other color you want.

Coloring the stripes of the court

USAPA recommends white-colored boundary lines for Pickleball courts. The most important thing to keep in mind while coloring the boundary lines should always be the contrast of the court surface.

Straight application of the lines is important to give a professional look in the court.

The most convenient and perfect method of application of lines is by using a line taping machine and then applying paint with a roller or a brush.
