    I found an abandoned court near my place and having some trouble with marking it out. Tried to make some marking grooves but can't find appropriate tools to do it. The court has forest soil and its very difficult to make grooves with sticks or smth like that. Is there any advanced way to mark out such court? Maybe there is some sort of marking glue to fill these grooves?

    For lines on a baseball field they use chalk (Calcium carbonate). It has to be replaced often, but should be cheap.

    A more expensive option might be a spray can product like this one:

    Lastly, you could somehow tack down vinyl marker tape. These may come with some of the cheap badminton/volleyball picnic sets or you could probably find a roll at a hardware store or you could order them special made with corners http://www.holabirdsports.com/gamma...lAdvisor&utm_source=Become&CA_6C15C=902300407)

    Good luck in your forest court. :)
