NBA Centre Court Toronto

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

We recently returned from the exciting NBA All-Star weekend in Toronto, Canada where we provide 125,000 sq. ft. of Revolution® with TuffShield® and Pro36™ premium basketball flooring to the NBA Centre Court held at the Enercare Centre. It took the SnapSports installation team under three days to install over 40 basketball courts! The NBA Centre Court was an Interactive fan event featuring hands on basketball clinics from current and former NBA and WNBA athletes, skills and activity competitions, dunks squads and dance teams. Fans had an opportunity to test and hone their skills on SnapSports indoor basketball flooring a well as meet some of their favorite players.

We were very happy to have been chosen by the NBA for the 3rd year in a row to provide flooring for this exciting fan event and to be a part of the history making as they held the NBA All-Star weekend outside the United States for the first time in All-Star history!
