Things to know

About the game pro tile

A Sports+ GAME PRO court is made up of tiles, each measuring 12” square. These tiles are connected by a simple, but precise interlocking mechanism. The picture shows the 2 post sides, hidden are the receiver sides of the tile.


Sports+ tile is a polypropylene plastic floor, which expands and contracts with temperature changes. A 100’ floor can expand 2” on both sides lengthwise when the weather warms up to 100°F (37°C).

For this reason, it is important that the tile be trimmed at least 1/2” from any stationary object such as a goal post or fence post.

Subsurface preparation

It is important that the surface of the substructure enables the Sports+ Game Pro tiles to expand and contract. Asphalt, being oil based and rough, is inherently slippery and makes a very good subsurface, as well as a rough (medium broom) cement finish. If the tiles expand without being able to slide, it will start to buckle in various portions of your court.

Sports+ Game Pro tiles can be laid over structural cracks (no wider than 1/2”) in the subsurface. Sharp cracks should be facetted or rounded so that the ball bounce is consistent and the tiles don’t “catch” when the floor expands and contracts.

Before you begin

1. Review your packing slip and verify all materials are included and have not incurred any damage during shipping.

2. Review your custom, numbered court layout document found in your Sports+ Installation Packet.

3. Confirm your base is ready for court tile installation and relocate your pallets to the install site.

4. Unpack your tile pallets, remove and discard the plastic and cardboard wraps.

Sports court tiles installation steps

Step 1

The easiest way to install Sports+ GAME PRO tiles is to start in one corner with the post end of the tiles facing to the right and down; or in a more basic description “pointing towards the corner”. Locate Panel #1 on your diagram and find panel #1 of your tile and simply lay the tile
into place.

Do not snap your tile together on this step. Lay each panel of tile next to each other until your court is fully laid out. You will snap your tiles together in Step 4.

Step 2

Locate Panel #2 and lay into place, continuing in numerical order moving across your diagram until all panels are in place.

Step 3

Step back and visually inspect to ensure sure your sections are in their proper place. Make sure the basketball lane lines up with your goal, as well with any tennis lines, logos and other lines matching your diagram, etc.

Step 4

Snap your tiles together. Starting with #1 and move across your court in the same order you laid the tiles down. By gently stepping on the seams, starting at one corner, the post ends are pressed into the receiver ends for a strong hold.
