Bakko Backboard, Professional Flat 10' x 16'
Panels are 2 1/2” thick with metal interior frames dividing each panel into 20 sub-compartments. Each sub compartment is filled with sound deadening materials. Panels are encased in thick fiberglass and UV protective gel coat unitized under pressure in large molds. Front and edges of panels are sprayed with a high quality impact, solar and temperature resistant green polyurethane Imron paint. Panel faces have no holes; attachment is in back with wheels. Wheels allow panels to roll in galvanized metal channels horizontally attached to fence post. Each panel weighs 150 lbs. Flat backboards are traditional; this is Bakko’s oldest model and over the years, a best seller. Typically purchased by country clubs, resorts and private court owners.

Over twenty steps go into the construction of each backboard panel. Pre-fabricated panel concept allows virtually an unlimited size and/or placement capability for any facility or application. Each panel is 4 feet wide, 8 or 10 feet high and weighs 80 to 150 pounds. The backboards are ready for play when the pre-fabricated, completely finished, green fiberglass interlocking panels are affixed to your tennis court fence posts or wall. The Bakko assembly kit holds the panels in a tight, unitized, side-by-side construction. Kits come in traditional flat and single curved styles. All kits are complete.
Minimum adequate size is 8’ high by 12’ wide backboard (3 panels). Attaches to two tennis court fence posts which, on most tennis courts, are spaced 10’ apart.
Typically 16’ wide (4 panels) and 20’ wide (5 panels) backboards require 3 tennis fence post for attachment. A 16’ backboard, if post are standard, expose more channel and hardware. It is not as aesthetically pleasing. Typically 3 or 5 panel models have minimal hardware and channel exposure.
If post are 8’ apart a 16’ wide backboard can be elegant. 20’ wide backboards are very popular, especially in the 10’ high series. Bakko feels a 12’ backboard is adequate if only 1 person hits.
If occasionally or potentially 2 people may practice, a 16’ backboard is recommended. If 2 people hit and elegance is important, a 20’ backboard is a must. Schools and tennis camps sometimes purchase 6, 7 and 8 panel kits, several panels for a continuous wall.
