Step 1: Getting What You Need.
Duct tape (light colors, traditional could work) you will need a lot depending on your driveway
4 square/playground ball
-optional, something to easily reel duct tape off of ( i used a whiffle ball bat)
Step 2: Measuring
I suggest that you test your court before making it semi-permenant
so maybe some chalk could do this job
the measurements of the court are taken by paces because it does not need to be exact
i have a size 8 shoe and the total length of my court is 32 "feet" (heel to toe) long, some people may want longer, or shorter, its all preferance
the width of the court is the size of your driveway or 24 ish heeltoe long
Step 3: Making the Court
when making the court look for edges, in my case i used the side of the driveway which is grass
it helps with telling if the ball is in or out.
your best case scenario is that you actually have curbing on your driveway, which makes the court extremely high quality
try to make the lines as straight as possible by laying the tape down slowly and carefully mine is a little bit cuvy but makes no impact on the game
Step 4: Matinence
to keep the court clean, it isnt much work
try to make sure it has no rocks or rubbish on it, and that is all you will need
