Overstock.com Upgrades Campus with SnapSports Outdoor Multi-Game Court

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2018

Internet retail giant Overstock.com recently contracted with SnapSports of Utah, the local authorized SnapSports builder, to complete a major upgrade to their employee campus. Overstock, located in Murray, Utah, was looking for a way to utilize a portion of their 19 acre corporate campus for a recreational and fun space for their 1500+ employees.

After working extensively with SnapSports of Utah on design and location options, Overstock chose an easily accessible spot and a 50′ x 84′ full size outdoor court for their campus. The court is floored with SnapSports top-of-the-line patented Outdoor BounceBack ShockTower®. It sports the Overstock colors, a custom center court logo, two regulation 72″ DuraSlam basketball hoops and has game lines for basketball, tennis, volleyball, and various other net sports.

Excavation on the Overstock.com court began in September with the end result complete earlier this week. SnapSports is ecstatic to have been chosen to provide a cool court to a cool company who has a focus on the health and well-being of their employees. Like SnapSports, Overstock is clearly a company who also encourages their staff to “Never Stop Playing!”

SnapSports Corporate is a family owned company who has been manufacturing the most advanced technology in outdoor multi-courts for nearly four decades. The same surfacing used by Overstock.com for their court is used by families around the world as well as top sports organizations. SnapSports manufactures 24/7 in a 100,000 square foot ISO 9001:2015 quality certified facility in Salt Lake City, UT and is supported by an authorized global network.

Why a Backyard Court is More Popular Than a Backyard Pool

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

What is a backyard court? Typically, it’s an area in the backyard where you have a concrete slab poured to the size of game court with a modular athletic surface on top for safer play, performance, and all-weather playability. There are several companies who manufacture and provide these surfaces, but SnapSports® Athletic Surfaces of Salt Lake City is the clear leader.

An outdoor multi-purpose court is much more practical than a pool, which kids typically stop using after a few years. Then there is the costly maintenance and constant upkeep with a pool, unlike a backyard court.

Typically with companies like SnapSports, you can easily convert your court from just basketball to include any additional sports such as volleyball, inline hockey, pickleball, paddle tennis, shuffleboard, and many other sports and activities.

So why are these backyard courts becoming so popular?

  • Convenience – What’s better than having your own custom backyard rec center?
  • Safety – You’ll always know where you kids are and who they are with.
  • Health – Promotes a lifelong habit of healthy sports fun

With the advent of these safer all-weather sports surfaces being adopted by not only families around the country, but top level sports organizations like NBA, AAU, FIBA, US Futsal, Volleyball associations and more, it is safe to say that you will see many more backyard courts in your neighborhood soon.
