Seven at Once - Three Fed Cup tournaments simultaneously on seven portable tennis courts from HARO Sports

HARO SPORTS, 17.03.2015

Krakow / Stuttgart / Budapest – High shock absorption on the one hand and maximum mobility on the other: Tennis aces appreciate the portable HARO Sports Rome tennis floor from HARO Sports Flooring and Rebound Ace Europe. In early February some of the world's best female tennis players competed with each other in three Fed Cup tournaments. A total of seven portable tennis courts were used – all at the same time! Besides its sport-specific performance, the floor convinced the decision makers by its quick installation and removal. The flexible high-tech sports floor had already demonstrated its capabilities at the 2014 Fed Cup in Budapest, and so this year the tournament hosts decided to equip a total of five courts with the tennis floor.

The best of two worlds
HARO Rome Tennis combines the best of two worlds: HARO Sports Flooring, a leading manufacturer of portable and fixed-installed, elastic-coating sports floors, provides the technical substructure while Rebound Ace, a leading provider of acrylic-based sports floors, refines the floor with its acrylic surface. Featuring optimal physical performance characteristics and the highest quality standards in compliance with ISO 9001, HARO Rome Tennis is a top player in the world rankings. In addition, the floor fulfils the requirements of DIN V 18032-2 of April 2001 and EN 14904 and is thus approved for use in the Olympic Games and all international tournaments.
The innovative tennis floor is subjectively more pleasant to play and objectively places less strain on the player's body than standard hard courts. Athletes tire less quickly and there is less risk of injury. At the same time the floor ensures the same ball bounce and pace as a hard court.

Portable and flexible
The floor covering for an 820 sq.m. court can be installed in just a few hours – and removed just as quickly. The perfect fit of the patented interlocking system that connects the individual modules even eliminates the need to recoat the surface after installation, which is usually required for portable hard courts. This flexibility is indispensable for intensively used sports facilities in today's sports and event world. The high quality of both the basic construction and the finish ensure that Rome Tennis can be installed and removed hundreds of times. The Rebound Ace® acrylic surface enables applying the logos of sponsors, tournament hosts or arena operators in full colour fidelity, thus showing off not only the athletes but also the sponsors to best effect.
