SnapSports Athletic Surfacing, the industry leader of the modular sports surfacing industry, will provide the official flooring for the 43rd USA Team Handball National Championships, being held May 13-15, 2011 at the Salt Palace Convention Center, in Salt Lake City, UT. The three-day tournament, will feature competition in three different divisions, for which all of the games, will take place on SnapSports®, patented BounceBack® surfacing, manufactured specifically for durability during competitive play. By the end of the event, two teams will walk away as the 2012 Men’s and Women’s Championships.
The 43rd USA Team Handball National Championships, notably the biggest weekend in American Handball, will be held for the first time in Utah, and has been welcomed with open arms by the Utah Sports Commission.
“We are excited to host this event for the first time,” said Jeff Robbins, CEO of the Utah Sports Commission, “Utah’s already diverse portfolio of sporting events continues to grow each year, and this Olympic sport particularly helps to build our Olympic legacy.”
All of the games at this National event will be played on SnapSports® multi-patented sports surfacing. SnapSports® Athletic Surfacing, is the industry leading manufacturer of high-performance modular sports surfaces. SnapSports® patented BounceBack® surfaces, are designed specifically to accommodate aggressive play using patented Shocktower® technology, which provides superior shock absorption, and eases the impact on joints, creating a safer playing surface for athletes.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership as the official flooring of USA Team Handball. Our multi-patented surfaces, combine patented shock absorption technology with traction and control features, to meet the unique demands of the sport, which is why for handball, no other surface comes close.” Jorgen Moller, CEO, SnapSports®, Inc.
Utah will become the 17th state to host the Nationals event, which was originally held in 1968 in Long Island. The selection of Salt Lake City as the host city was not surprising, as USA Team Handball’s national governing body recently moved and established its headquarters in Utah’s capital city in 2005.
