Pickleball Courts

A popular new sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton, and life-sized ping pong. Pickleball allows for the same fun and social aspects of tennis while only requiring a quarter the space! It does not take the rigorous skill, proficiency, or physical fitness of tennis lessons either. Pickleball lines can also easily be added to any existing tennis court transforming it into a multiuse recreational facility.


Tennis Courts

Recently, one of our custom tennis courts was awarded “Residential Tennis Court of the Year” by the American Sports Builders Association. Experience the beauty and functionality of a DeShayes custom tennis court. DeShayes also converts existing tennis courts into multi-use courts, basketball courts, turf fields, and more!

Customer Testimonials

“We just wanted to write and tell you how thrilled we are with our new basketball court. It was well worth the expense! Every time we pull into the garage after school my daughter grabs the ball and heads over to shoot ‘a few’. A few turns into an hour since she’s usually joined by her brother returning from school. It’s so delightful to look out my kitchen window and see them playing and excersing together, and it’s also comforting to know where they are, too!”

– Theresa, Vernon, NJ

“We’ve been enjoying our court for the past two years and I can tell you that is truly brought the family together. Joe’s team did a great job and I would highly recommend him. Very professional in his approach and true to his word as they’ve come back yearly to service the court.”

–  Ed, Caldwell, NJ

“We are pleased with court and the landscaping that surrounds it. You are flexible and try to please your customers. As our friends and neighbors inquire we will refer them to you. Thank you for the basketball, the inkberry plant and for a job well done.”

– Sharon, Princeton NJ

“I had a DeShayes Dream Court installed at my home a few years ago and my family and I couldn’t be happier. Joe DeShayes and his team worked with us to design a court that best fit our needs and desires, as well as the size of our backyard. They installed and delivered on schedule; and to this day I can call them for immediate maintenance/repairs. I would highly recommend a Deshayes Court to everyone. You won’t be disappointed. ”

– Jim – Shamong, NJ.

“Everything is looking great! It was really impressive watching the crew work this week – they definitely have the process down to a science!”

– Ashley, Sewell, NJ

“Our beautiful court is finally finished and we couldn’t be any more thrilled than what we are! Not only is it an asset to our home, but it enhances the beauty of our yard. Everyone that comes into the yard comments on how beautiful and impressive it is. What could be better than looking out my kitchen window and seeing our court filled with my sons and their friends? This summer we had several get togethers with family and friends and the court was the focal point of the day. Both adults and teenagers played together and had great fun. The best part was the versatility of the court. Our court definitely exceeded our expectations. Thanks also to your professional construction team. They worked diligently and completed the job right on time. I am so glad we got our DeShayes Court!”

– Stephen & Lisette, Hillsdale, NJ

Smile Train Charity

I wanted to introduce you to our company charity, Smile Train. Knowing that my children are happy and seeing them smile is one of the greatest feelings in the world. For every court we finish, DeShayes will donate the cost of one cleft lip operation on the behalf of the client so that a less fortunate child will finally be able to smile, as should be the right of all children. Our wish is that every child has many reasons to smile, and our mission is to make a DeShayes Court one of those reasons!
