Reasons to Refresh Your Outdoor Sports Court Markings

If your playground is starting to look faded and dated, it may be time to refresh your outdoor sports court markings. Line markings in sports court fade over time due to exposure to the elements as well as friction from constant use.

The general wear of outdoor sports court markings reduces visibility and makes it difficult for users to use the grounds. That’s why UniPlay provide sports court markings removal and installation services to ensure your playground looks vibrant and inspires team spirit in the players.

Why You Should Refresh Your Outdoor Sports Court Markings

There are numerous reasons why you should refresh your outdoor sports court markings. These include:


Sports court are high energy activity areas and players rely heavily on the line markings for performance as well as safety. Keeping the grounds clearly marked ensures players enjoy their games safely while playing inside their designated areas.

When done accurately and professionally, sports court markings also help players follow the safety rules of the game.

Promote Physical Activity

Refreshing old sports court markings turn the playground into a vibrant space that is attractive to children of all ages. We use bright colours and patterns that encourage children to take part in physical activities on the playground.

The NHS recommends that all children between the ages of 5 and 18 enjoy at least an hour of exercise every day. Having vibrant sports court encourages kids to meet their daily quota of exercise to stay healthy.

Separating Opposing Teams

Sporting teams also rely on clearly outlined court to participate in competitive sports. Refreshing your outdoor sports court ensures players can see their positions and compete more effectively as well as fairly.

If your outdoor sports court are marked using paint, we recommend switching to thermoplastic markings which are anti-slip, durable, and more vibrant.

Determine Points and Offences Fairly

Refreshing outdoor sports court markings ensures players can clearly see the demarcations and makes it easier to allocate points and determine offences. This boosts team spirit and makes the games more enjoyable for players.

Helps Mark Specific Areas for Spectators

Faded sports court markings make it difficult for team players and spectators to distinguish between their respective areas. Refreshing these markings makes it easier for each of them to stick to their allocated areas and promotes the safety of both the players and spectators.
