Gerflor's Taraflex Sports Flooring was selected by the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando for the 25th Annual Youth Basketball of America (YBOA) Championship Games. The OCCC selected 16 portable Taraflex courts for the tournament, which sees around 10,000 visitors, including 300 teams from across the U.S., daily. Taraflex has been used in the summer Olympic Games since 1976 and is the preferred solution of numerous NCAA athletic programs and youth sports associations across the U.S, according to the company.
“As the second largest convention center in the U.S. with millions of visitors each year, it was crucial that the quality of flooring we have installed be lined up with the caliber of play that takes place during the YBOA games and other events at the Center,” said Kathie Canning, OCCC executive director. “Taraflex’s proven track record combined with its easy installation, removal, and great look made it the most logical choice for the Convention Center.”
“According to Safe Kids Worldwide, more than 46.5 million youth participate in sports each year in the United States,” says CEO, Benjamin Bachman, Gerflor USA. “It’s very important that flooring provides excellent safety characteristics to young players, so we’re honored that the OCCC chose Gerflor to accommodate the nearly 50,000 spectators and athletes who will use Taraflex during the YBOA Championship Games.”
