Court Line Tape And Boundary Markers

There are a few things you’ll need to play pickleball – a paddle, a ball, and some shoes. But if you’re looking to play on a court, you’ll also need boundary markers. Temporary markers can be as simple as tape or chalk, while permanent markers can be anything from paint to plastic fencing.

If you’re looking for temporary markers, we recommend using tape or chalk. Tape is easy to use and comes in a variety of colors, while chalk is affordable and easy to clean up.

If you own or manage a court and have a crew of pickleball players looking to play a lot, permanent lines are going to be the player’s choice.
