San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) December 06, 2011
The 2011 National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Division I Women’s Volleyball Championships begin Dec. 15 at the Alamodome and Sport Court is once again featured as the official playing surface.
Division I games are scheduled Dec. 15-17, with the championships featuring Sport Court’s proprietary new Maple Select™ Surface with SportGuard™ surface technology, providing superior performance and increased wear.
The high-gloss championship surface will cover about 7,000 square feet.
Sport Court surfaces will also be used December 8-10 at the regional championships at the University of Hawaii, University of Florida, University of Minnesota and the University of Kentucky.
For the 19th consecutive year, Sport Court will partner with the NCAA volleyball championships providing 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.”
