Solutions designed to support high impact athletes and heighten basketball game play
Basketball has a long and rich history, from its origins in the late 19th century to the excitement and popularity of today's national league teams. One thing that has changed little over the years is the court itself which is still constructed in wood just as it was in the first games. However significant advances in flooring – such as patented sub-construction systems to improve sports performance - have enabled players to take the game to new heights. Tarkett Sports has worked with the FIBA Research Study Centre over many years to evolve its sports flooring to the athletic requirements of basketball – securing the constant underfoot changes of direction and deflecting the heavier impact of players in their jumping and landing to ensure an optimal level of performance, comfort and safety.
For professional players intensively training and playing Tarkett Sports recommends: Proflex M – top of the range area elastic multi-layer double-joist wood system for superior shock absorption, consistent ball rebound, excellent playability and high visibility surface aspect.
