We are moving in about a year and I'm going to do everything I can to get enough land to squeeze in a real court. That would just be so awesome ... In the meantime I was thinking of building a wall in my current backyard - has anyone done this? Due to my schedule I just can't get to the courts nearly as much as I want, but I work from home and there are plenty of times when I have 30 minutes of free time. I could see myself using it almost every day. I am thinking I could hire someone to come out and lay a 30' x 50' concrete slab, then just build a wall out of bricks and lay some thin plywood over it. Paint it green with a white line going across and presto. Maybe design it somehow so that the wall leans away from the "court" a tiny bit to get a better bounce off the wall? Doesn't seem like it could cost THAT much could it? The ground is relatively flat ... anyone have any idea how much it would cost for a slab? I don't even really care how long it lasts - I'll only be here another year. I don't have time to do it myself but I figure it couldn't cost more than 5-8k for a really nice one?
