When we moved in to our new home in Maryland it had a backyard court with an existing sport surface with absolutely no traction. We looked at options for a new safer surface decided to go with FlexCourt. It was both a price and quality selection. The FlexCourt outdoor basketball court surface traction is absolutely superb. My kids are playing on the court as often as they can. Great way to enjoy time with family and friends and always know where your kids are.
