SnapSports® Athletic Surfacing was the flooring of choice for the Japanese National Basketball League (NBL) as they hosted their Inaugural All-Star Games December 29th in Tokyo, Japan. Six events took place on SnapSports® multi-patented Indoor ShockTower® basketball surfacing, beginning with the Japanese Women’s Wheelchair Basketball Exhibition and finishing with the premier of the NBL All-Star Game. High energy Slam dunk, 3-point, and 3 on 3 contests were also held to the delight of the 4,000+ fans in attendance.
The National Basketball League, in its first year in Japan, is composed of 12 teams divided into Eastern and Western conferences.
