Saturday, Mar 31, 2018

Salt Lake City based SnapSports will once again be a key player in the Mizuno Big South National Qualifier volleyball tournament, taking place March 30-April 1st at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The tournament, entering its 30th year, will feature over 200,000 square feet of SnapSports 5050 ShockTower volleyball surfacing.
Big South National Qualifier remains the nation’s largest single weekend volleyball event, this year showcasing 1200 premier teams competing for 3 days in 19 different divisions. 60 of the 160 event courts will be comprised of SnapSports 5050 ShockTower Surfacing used in both tournament and championship play. The conclusion of the tournament will send 34 teams home with a bid to USA Volleyball’s Junior National Championships.
SnapSports 5050 ShockTower surfacing, the only modular athletic surface with a built in shock absorption system, was the easy choice for Big South Officials.
“We could not be happier with this SnapSports sports flooring. We found the installation was faster because it eliminated a time consumer step of first having to put down an underlayment and the locking mechanism of the tile worked great” said Randy Dagostino, of the Big South National Qualifier. “The larger module made it easier to handle both during installation and teardown and from an aesthetic standpoint; they made our tournament look classier and cleaner,“ Dagostino continued. “We heard many positive comments from the athletes and their coaches about how much they enjoyed playing on SnapSports Championship Volleyball Courts.”
The patented 5050 ShockTower Technology not only eliminates the need for time consuming and costly underlayment, it provides an added level of ‘cush’ to reduce impact on joints and limbs. SnapSports Volleyball surfaces ensure an consistent playing surface and excellent coefficient of friction.
