Installation Instructions

The Alley Oop kit comes with 2 white lines down one side and one line down the other. The extra outer line needs to be cut off. This is used to mark the ‘free throw’ line and the outer edge of the ‘d’.  The lines were you need to cut are marked on the back of the turf.

Once this is laid out and joined in place the outer green grass can be installed. Firstly cut two x 3m lengths these are installed at the ‘d’ end of the court. You will be left with a run of grass 6m long. This is then cut in half running up the middle of the grass. Simply find the approximate middle and cut along a rib. **DO NOT CUT ACROSS THE GRASS HERE.
Now you should be ready to lay all the green surrounds. Simply put in place, you will need to trim in around the half circle, this requires a little patience. You should now have all four pieces of green grass in position and ready to join to the key with the qualtape.

When you have finished joining all the seems you can trim off any remaining grass.

Finally you are ready to sand the court. Make sure that the grass and sand are dry when doing this. Also it is very important to spread the sand evenly, use a drop spreader or drill holes in a bucket and fill with sand. Broom the sand in with a stiff yard broom or hire a mechanical groomer.

When finished you will most likely have a very sandy surface, this is perfect and the sand will keep filling the grass with use making a hard firm base.
