HARO Sports Flooring - It’s rolling! - Sports Center for the disabled Thuringia goes for HARO sports floor

HARO SPORTS, 15.07.2014

Rosenheim – The 2009 opened sports center for the disabled in Elxleben, Thuringia, has had an addition to the family. A former tennis hall has been converted to an Eldorado for wheelchair basketball players. 1200 m² of HARO sports flooring model Helsinki 15 in oak were installed. Even German premier league teams train here. HARO sports floors, whether permanently installed or portable, haven been making basketball players of the DBB get a move on in international championships as well as in Olympics for many years. The model Helsinki is a sports floor with an elastic layer which is perfectly suitable for refurbishments thanks to its low installation height. And thanks to its even construction, the floor features excellent sports-physiological properties.

Being able to offer handicapped athletes the possibility to train regularly and with professional help: this dream came true in 2009, when the sports center for the disabled in Elxleben was opened in May. Completely new prospects became available for the association (“TBRSV e.V.”) and the club („Reha-Sport-Bildung e.V.), as well as for the sport for the disabled in Thuringia in general. Such a development spread quickly, especially among wheel chair athletes. Initiator and chairman of the club, Lutz Leßmann, has been pushing the development since the founding of the club in 2001. Training and match activities were taken on in the converted tennis hall. “Of course I already knew HARO sports floors. The best basketball and tennis players in the world play on the sports floors from Rosenheim. Hence, the decision taking was not too hard. Contact and implementation of the project ran smoothly, too. You quickly realize that you’re working with pro’s who are as passionate about the sport as you are.” Lutz Leßmann says enthusiastically after completion of the project.

HARO Sports Flooring has been playing in the top league for centuries now. For example, the training hall of the FC Bayern ProA basketballer players in the Säbener Strasse in Munich was equipped with HARO Sports Flooring model Helsinki 15.
