Netball Court Markings in Schools: A Game-Changer in Durability and Safety

Netball Court Marking in a School

Understanding the Need for Quality in Netball Court Markings in School Sports Facilities

In schools across the UK, netball holds a special place as a vital part of physical education, promoting teamwork, physical health, and a love for sports. For educators and school administrators, providing a top-notch playing facility is crucial. It's not just about the sport; it's about ensuring safety, long-term use, and managing costs effectively. That's where thermoplastic markings for netball courts come into the picture.

Thermoplastic Markings: The Smart Choice for Netball Courts

Thermoplastic is a material that's transforming how we view sports court markings. Unlike traditional painted lines, thermoplastic offers a range of benefits that align perfectly with the needs of a bustling school environment trying to keep costs down.

  1. Durability: These markings last up to ten times longer than regular paint. This means less frequent reapplications, ensuring the court is always game-ready.

  2. Safety First: We understand the paramount importance of student safety. Thermoplastic markings are non-slip, reducing the risk of falls and injuries during play.

  3. Eco-friendly and Safe: The non-toxic nature of thermoplastic makes it a safe choice for schools. It's a relief knowing students are playing on a surface free from harmful chemicals.

  4. Cost-Effective in the Long Run: Initially, thermoplastic might seem like a higher investment compared to paint. But, its longevity and reduced need for maintenance make it a cost-effective solution over time.

Flexible Installation Options: Remark or a New Court?

We understand that every school's needs are unique. Whether you're looking to breathe new life into an existing court or install a brand-new one, we're here to help.

  • Remarking Existing Courts: Our team can expertly reapply markings to your current court with our thermoplastic lines. Please note this does depend on how much of the old court is still visible (please contact us to discuss) as it's not good practice to install new lines onto material which is letting go.

  • New Court Markings: If you're considering adding a netball court to your school playground, we offer complete installation services. We tailor the court size to fit your available space or adhere to the standard dimensions of 30.5 x 15.25 metres, ensuring a perfect fit for the available space.

  • Customised to Your Needs: Our team will work closely with you to determine the best course of action, ensuring minimal disruption to your school schedule.

  • Professional and Trustworthy Team: Rest assured, all team members are fully DBS checked and highly qualified in their roles. Your school's safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.

Why Netball Courts Need the Best

Netball, as a sport, demands precision and clarity in court markings. Accurate lines play a critical role in both training and matches. We mark the courts out first and then check everything is as it should be before we install the lines. With thermoplastic markings, once they are installed they're there for years to come so it's worth us spending these extra moments to get everything lined up before we start installing the thermoplastic line markings. You're not just getting durability; we're ensuring that every line is precise, clear, and contributes to a fair and enjoyable game.

Beyond the Game: A Learning and Community Space

A well-marked netball court can be more than just a sports court marking. It can also be a community space where students learn about teamwork, develop sportsmanship, and engage in healthy competition, perhaps even with other schools. It's where memories & friendships are made, and life lessons are learned. Investing in high-quality markings is investing in the holistic development of students.

Thermoplastic Colours

We can make your netball court in any colour you wish. We suggest bright colours like white or yellow (England Netball suggests white is the preferred colour. Source) which clearly stand out against the dark playground surface making it easier for players to see.
