Sport Court® provided and installed all basketball court surfaces for the recent Nike National Invitational Tournament (NIT) in Chicago at McCormick Place and the current United States Junior National Tournament (USJN) in Washington D.C. at the Walter E.

Washington Convention Center allowing for hundreds of games each day. The NIT hosted more than 450 girls’ teams from 46 U.S. states and all Canadian provinces along with 600 college coaches, and the USJN is expected to attract 300 teams and 800 college coaches from across the U.S. and Canada.
