Sport Court at the White House

On March 28th, 2016 the 138th annual Easter Egg Roll was hosted on the south lawn of the White House, with games and activities for more than 35,000 kids and their families in attendance.

As in past years Sport Court Power Game™ mini-tennis courts were on display and in a fun exhibition with WTA pro Caroline Wozniacki, President Obama proved that he is more skilled on a basketball court than with a tennis racket in hand.

Sport Court in the DRC

Power Game™ bright blue (BBL) and mustard (MUS) multipurpose surface including two Solid Slam™ hoop systems at The American School of Kinshasa (TASOK) in the Democratic Republic of Congo, located just meters away from the majestic Congo River, scene of Joseph Conrad’s novella “The Heart of Darkness”.

After decades of playing on unforgiving painted concrete, the school upgraded to Power Game for both safety and long-term maintenance benefits, and because of the ease of installation during spring holiday:  a hard-working team installed the surface, planted u-bolt anchors, painted game lines, and assembled the Solid Slam Systems over the course of 3 days.  TASOK’s “roof but no walls” facility keeps the rain out, the sun off the court during the hottest part of the day, while allowing breezes to filter thru, and any dust/sand brought in by the wind sifts thru Power Game’s perforated grid to the subbase leaving the top playing surface relatively clean and dry.  These facilities are very common in tropical regions and Power Game™ is a practical, attractive solution for surface refurbishment.

Many thanks to TASOK staff for their confidence in Sport Court.
