University Park, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) May 07, 2011
For the 18th year in a row, this week’s NCAA® Men’s National Collegiate Volleyball Championship is being played on Sport Court®.
The games are Thursday and Saturday, May 5 and 7, and will be played on Sport Court’s new Response HG™ and Maple Select™ high performance sports flooring at Penn State University’s Recreation Hall.
Both products include Sport Court’s patented “SportGuard”™ surface technology which provides a proprietary urethane topcoat to the playing surface.
“We are proud to have again been chosen as the playing surface for this year’s NCAA Men’s Collegiate Volleyball Championship,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International.
“Our engineers have constantly developed and improved this court system to make it the optimum choice for volleyball players the world over,” Cerny said.
“Our Response™ playing surface is a state-of-the-art engineered polymer surface, which provides Lateral Forgiveness™ for player safety while at the same time providing vertical shock-absorption required by this fast-moving sport,” he added.
“Their products are A number 1,” said Peter Davis of the NCAA. “Their servicing of our championships is as well.”
Connor Sport Court International is headquartered in Salt Lake City.
