Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 7, 2009
SnapSports, the industry leading manufacturer and provider of premium courts and athletic sports flooring, announced today the recent classification of their tennis court surfacing by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the sport's world governing body.
SnapSports received notice of the ITF classification for two of their multi-patent & patent pending outdoor tennis court surfaces, the BounceBack® and DuraCourt®. These surfaces are considered the top performing modular sports surfaces in the industry, based on combined results of a independent laboratory test on performance, slip resistance, impact, and abrasiveness.
The ITF is recognized as the world governing body for the sport of tennis. The ITF Court Pace Classification Program has been developed to assist purchasers of tennis court surface products to determine the type and speed of surface most suited to their specific requirements. The ITF Court Pace Rating (CPR) measures the effect of ball-surface interaction. This concept includes: friction, which primarily determines the reduction in the horizontal component of post-impact ball velocity; and vertical restitution, which determines the time between successive bounces.
Located in Salt Lake City, Utah, SnapSports manufactures 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year in their 100,000 square foot facility. The family at SnapSports is proud of more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing & providing courts and athletic sports surfacing worldwide.
