have massive 70 x 30 patio in my back yard, it is always puddling water. We use as a basketball court and it makes it un-usable for 2 days every time it rains for an hour.

what are my options, can i just try putting a round 8" hole or so, in the center of where it puddles and put in a drain cover and hope the water will find its way down to the dirt under the slab?

you cant squigee and play right away, you squigee and wait 30 minutes and play, but that also only works if the sun is out. the kids go out to play several times a day, its not something they can really do on their own at this age. and looking for a solution that would also have us look in our backyard and not see a puddle about 30% of the time.

yes im in the north, but the concrete is 14 years old, so the freezing puddles dont seem to be an issue.

I was thinking make a 4 foot x 10” hole or so , fill it with drainage pebbles and then put some sort of drain cover on it. Or making some more expansion joints .
