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.
