Gyms come in all shapes and sizes. A variety of factors should be considered when laying out the space. The primary sports to be played in the gym will usually dictate much of the gym design. However, this doesn’t mean that courts must be regulation size. For instance, we frequently make basketball courts slightly smaller than regulation. This is often done to free up space for team benches or bleachers.
Game lines for secondary courts will often fit within the space allotted for the primary sport. For instance, 3 pickleball courts will comfortably fit within the space of a single basketball court. Or, extra basketball goals can be added along the side of a court. This allows more players to work on shooting drills at the same time.
