Why Convert?

DeShayes Court Conversions specializes in award winning custom tennis court conversions, multi-use court conversions and court resurfacing.

Tennis to Pickleball : Tennis can be very demanding on an individuals body as people get older, not to mention the skill it takes to play proficiently. For tennis enthusiasts, Pickleball is a very similar sport, however requires considerably less skill to get started and involves less stress on ones body. Pickleball is played on a smaller court (1/4 the size of a tennis court) with similar strategy to tennis.

Multi-Use Courts : Why have one court for two people when you can have as many as 26 people playing multiple sports on the same court at one time. By simply altering the court layout, line configuration, and adding a few components, your space for a basketball or tennis court can be turned into a space for a multi-sport activity center! More fun for more people and you’ll always know where your kids are!

Our Story

Upon graduating from college with a background in Landscape Architecture, owner Joe DeShayes concentrated on Landscape Design and Construction, including master plans for developing private residences. As part of the master plans, recreation was usually a top priority for most clients with children. Joe, coming from a family of 10 children has personal experience with this issue. Court sports (basketball, volleyball, pickleball, tennis) and golf, topped the list. Thus, in addition to DeShayes Residential Resort Design, Joe created DeShayes Dream Greens, DeShayes Pickleball Courts, DeShayes Court Conversions and DeShayes Dream Courts.

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 Dream Court!

I would highly recommend a Deshayes Court to everyone. You won’t be disappointed.

“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 Dream Court to everyone. You won’t be disappointed. ”

– Jim, Shamong NJ

We had such a wonderful experience from start to finish with this company. We did a lot of research and received a huge range of prices and “sales” of what we “need”. Joe and his team asked the right questions, took the time to review the property, assess our wants and needs and came up with the perfect solution and price! It was great to hear the options we could have according to wanted. Great company!!! – Trish

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!
