If you and your family will benefit from it for the 5 years, then the investment will make sense.
Either option if based on what works for you and then resale is based on the needs and wants of the next buyer.
If you put in the pool you could have yourself a summer rental opportunity. We all get lots of calls looking for a great summer rental in Greenwich. These are few and far between. If you spend part of the summer elsewhere, this might be a great way to recoup some of the cost.
That's a tough question because both of them are features that a new home buyer may not want at all or may absolutely love. Some do not want the high maintenance of a pool and others may have wanted to put in a garden instead of having a sports court. Or someone may specifically be looking for a pool (which does happen more than sports courts). Also, they are both problematic if someone wishes to remove it, so you are looking at the possibility of less traffic when you are trying to sell if a potential buyer does not want these things. However, considering you will be occupying the home for some years, maybe your family would like those amenities. That of course is up to you and your family's preferences, and if you want to wade in a nice cool pool all summer long, go for the pool! And likewise, if your family are sports lovers, go for the court! It all comes down to personal preference and that will also be the case with buyers in the long term. Just be sure that whatever you decide to get, you keep it in top in anticipation of the resale. Good luck to you!
Install the pool, everyone wants a pools,plus it adds value to your home. Any questions regarding pool installation or building please don't hesitate to call or email.
Congratulations and Good luck!

Good luck with your new house
I suggest that you construct whatever your family will enjoy most whether it be a pool or sports court.
I don't believe that one has a much greater value over the other monetary-wise but both are amenities that will add value to the property.
Good luck to you!
