If you want your court to be level with the surrounding ground, you would need to dig down about 4 inches and then pack down the loose soil with a plate compactor. Put up some 2x6 lumber as a form, make sure to reinforce it. You would want allow for a few expansion joints in the surface I should think at minimum dividing the court in 1/4s. Then you would need to compute how much concrete you would need Order a pour and then be prepared to finish it (if you are intending on doing this yourself) ie screed/float the surface, cut in your joints, finish the edges, make sure to wet it down so that it does not cure to rapidly. Of course you can also consider asphalt which would be alot cheaper and easier (since you would hire the whole thing out.

A few things to consider:

1. Size. You planning to construct a regulation sized court or smaller-modified dimensions? You could even go with a regulation-sized half court.

2. Proper foundation is a must. If going with cement court, you'd need to dig down enough for a solid sub-base, reinforced rebar and wiring and good quality cement. Plus, some kind of sealer that won't be slippery.

3. Permits. I suppose you would need the town's OK and permits.

4. Then you have the matter of lights. Do you want lights? Do your neighbors want lights? Could be some headaches with this feature, huh!

5. Direction of the court. I don't think you want one end of the court to be in the S or SW facing direction as the setting sun would impact play. Same for the other don't want the morning sun to blind you. So, position the court so the sun has minimal impact.

Basketball court dimensions are Not all the same..Build your own NBA Court - College - or Middle School..Have fun and HoopsUp..

An NBA court is 94 ft long and 50 ft wide. A College or High School court is 84 ft long and 50 ft wide. A Junior High court is 74 ft long and 42 ft wide. Half court is well.. half the distance of the full court.. (I know, I didn't need to add that)

The free throw line is always 15 ft from the line to the backboard The distance from the ground to the rim is 10 ft. The 3 point arc in the NBA is 22ft to the center of the rim on the sides ( the arc starts 5 ft 3 in from the baseline, being a straight line until that point) then the curved part of the arc is 23ft. 9 in. from the center of the rim.

The 3 point arc in college and high school is 19 ft 9 in. (The straight part extends 63 in out from the baseline before the arc begins). The key is 12 feet wide (the width of the free throw line) the backboard should extend 4 feet out over the baseline. The 12 ft wide free throw line forms the center of a circle with a 6 ft radius. The backboard is 72 inches wide by 42 inches high and has an 18 inch diameter rim. The inner square is marked above the rim in a rectangle of 24 inches wide and 18 inches high.
