Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
Following a stellar turn-out in Los Angeles last weekend, the NBA Nation Tour and their custom SnapSports® Outdoor Game Courts are not quite done California dreaming. The tour heads to San Francisco this weekend, July 25th -26th, to get in some Bay Area Basketball. Events will be taking place on SnapSports Outdoor BounceBack® ShockTower® surface, the only modular surface featuring a built in shock absorption system to take any game to the next level. With an estimated weekend attendance of over one million fans visiting Union Square, the NBA needed a surface that promised easy installation and guaranteed safety for participants of all ages and skill levels.
“When it comes to NBA fan events, quality, performance, and safety are key. SnapSports surfaces are portable, high performance courts and the NBA is excited to partner with SnapSports for the 2014 NBA Nation Tour.” - Patrick Sullivan Vice-President Events, NBA
The NBA Nation Tour presented by Sprint is the league’s largest mobile basketball experience. The interactive fan experience brings 20,000 square feet of basketball fun, including the Sprint Ultimate Shot, the NBA Fan Combine, and the Sprite Slam Dunk Showdown where amateur dunkers can earn cash prizes and the chance to compete during 2015 All-Star Weekend. Fans will also be treated with scheduled appearances by NBA Legend A.C. Green, Tour Ambassador Darryl Dawkins, the Golden State Warriors dance team and high flying professional dunk squad, the Flying Dubs. The Union Square event offers FREE admission, giving kids and adults alike the chance to dribble, dunk, and show off their skills on the high performance SnapSports surfacing. SnapSports is ecstatic with the tour turn-out thus far and is thrilled to have been chosen to partner with the NBA.
