Rosenheim - From 22 to 24 September 2017, the first Laver Cup was held at the O2 Arena in Prague. Stars such as Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal took part in the international men's tennis tournament. HARO Sports, the German manufacturer of sports flooring, joined in again and equipped the tournament with its portable floor solution "ROM TENNIS".
The Laver Cup is an international men's tournament, which was held for the first time in 2017 and took place at the O2 Arena in Prague from 22 to 24 September 2017. The best players from all over Europe came out against the rest of the world in three singles and one double each day. With 6 players per team, stars such as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem met outside the regular tennis events. The tickets were already sold out in just 45 minutes, and the O2 Arena had to be extended to 17,500 seats due to the high demand. The team "Europe" prevailed against the "World" team with 15 points and won the trophy.
The sports floor manufacturer HARO Sports equipped the entire tournament with the portable floor solution "ROM TENNIS". In addition to the tournament court with a size of 1,200 m², there was also an 826 m²-large training court. For the first time in Europe, they were both delivered with a black covering.
The innovative tennis floor is more comfortable and significantly reduces impact on the joints and spine compared to conventional hardcourts. This causes less fatigue for the athletes and lowers risk of injury. At the same time, the ball can be played just as well as on a hard floor.
The floor can be installed and dismantled within a few hours. Due to the perfect fit of the individual panels with their patented locking system, it is even possible to install it without the additional coating usually necessary for portable hardcourts. This offers a level of flexibility that is indispensable for intensive indoor use in today's sports and event world. The high quality of the underlying structure and finish makes it possible to install and remove ROM TENNIS hundreds of times.
The ROM TENNIS sports floor is the perfect solution for professional tournaments in sports and multi-purpose halls when a quick change of the floor surface is needed. No other portable court system on the market offers this combination of top performance and perfect logistics.
