The close of summer signifies many things: cooler weather, back to school, and the end of the wildly successful 2014 NBA Nation Tour presented by Sprint. The NBA’s largest mobile experience, with a tour record attendance of over 3 million fans visiting 8 cities, ends this weekend with event “Arts, Beats, & Eats,” in Detroit August 29th-September 1st. The Motor City Labor Day Finale will feature Pistons legends Rick Mahorn and Earl Cureton, the Detroit Pistons Dancers and drumline, and the high-flying dunk squad ‘Flight Crew’. These appearances as well as other fan-friendly activities will take place on Outdoor Bounceback® ShockTower® surfacing, the official Court of the NBA Nation Tour.

“SnapSports and the NBA Nation Tour have had a fantastic summer; we could not be more pleased with each of the tour events," said Jorgen Moller, SnapSports CEO. "Having our patented outdoor courts used by NBA professionals and over three million NBA fans illustrates exactly what SnapSports is about: bringing top rated, safe surfaces to any backyard or facility with families and athletes at any level."

SnapSports, a Utah Based company, initially partnered with the NBA during the 2014 All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, providing over 100,000 square feet of athletic surfacing for the interactive fan-centric NBA Jam Session. This successful partnership continued with SnapSports being selected as the Official Court of the 2014 NBA Nation Tour. Top Rated BounceBack ShockTower outdoor courts were chosen to travel across the country with the tour, applauded for their ease of installation, durability, and recognition as the only surface in the industry with shock absorption system built into the understructure. It was important to the NBA to choose a surface that would guarantee safe play for millions of fans while still playing like a professional floor. Both SnapSports and the NBA are ecstatic with the outcome of the 2014 Summer Tour.

"The NBA was proud to partner with SnapSports for the 2014 NBA Nation Tour," said Patrick Sullivan, NBA Vice President of Events. "The quality, performance, and guaranteed safety of SnapSports surfacing played a big part in the success of the NBA's largest mobile experience."
