St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
The 2010 National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Women’s Division III Volleyball Championship begins play this week to determine the 2011 National Champion. Sport Court is once again featured as the official playing surface of the NCAA Volleyball Championships.
This year’s Division III championships will be Nov. 18-20 at Washington University Fieldhouse in St. Louis. Division I games, slated for Dec. 15-17 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, will also be played on Sport Court surfaces. Sport Court will provide surfaces for Division II Sports Festival scheduled for May 14-19, 2012, in Louisville and the NCAA Men’s Collegiate Championship next spring.
The championship will feature Sport Court’s Response HG™ featuring Maple Select™ . The high-gloss championship playing surface will cover about 7,000 square feet and features Sport Court’s proprietary SportGuard™ surface technology.
For the 19th consecutive year, NCAA volleyball championships will be contested on Sport Court® playing surfaces. Sport Court will provide a total of more than 50,000 square feet of performance flooring for all three divisions.
Connor Sport Court surfaces are NCAA favorites: Since 2005 Connor Sport Court has also been the exclusive provider of hardwood basketball courts for the NCAA Final Four®
“Superior performance and player safety are two of the primary reasons Sport Court continues to be the choice of the NCAA Volleyball Championships,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International.
“Sport Court’s continuous development, ongoing research and safety testing has resulted in a unique playing surface that provides easy installation, customized layouts, vibrant colors and natural wood appearances.”
In what has become a long-standing tradition, at the conclusion of the championship, each member of the championship team will receive a piece of the competition floor in commemoration of their team’s victory. It is a tradition similar to the net-cutting ceremony at the end of the basketball championships.
“With safety and performance as two of our main considerations, Sport Court has been our choice as a playing surface since 1993,” said David Clendenin, Assistant Director of NCAA Corporate Alliances. “Sport Court provides us with colorful and exciting volleyball courts that meet our requirements for performance and flexibility.”
