ANDOVER, Mass. – September 22, 2017 – California Sports Surfaces (CSS), a brand under ICP Construction (ICP), is pleased to announce its innovative Rebound Ace Portable sport surfacing system is being used in the inaugural Laver Cup in Prague, Czech Republic, Sept. 22-24, 2017. CSS’s Rebound Ace system was selected to provide comfort, consistency and playability to the Laver Cup participants, who represent the best tennis players in the world. For this event, organizers worked with California Sports Surfaces to create a stunning black surface that would keep spectators focused on the game play.
Rebound Ace Portable is an interlocking, temporary court system that provides premium cushion and comfort to maximize players’ performance. It has been chosen for use for several high-profile events, including the Fed Cup, Davis Cup, and the Singapore-based WTA Finals, for which it was specifically created. Laver Cup is modeled after golf’s Ryder Cup, pitting the best tennis players in Europe against the best players from the rest of the world. It is the brainchild of Roger Federer and is intended to be played annually.
The following features make Rebound Ace Portable ideal for exhibitions and events like the Laver Cup that require a temporary surface solution:
• Unique surface coatings that create a sharp, crisp appearance and a stunning color contrast to keep spectator focus on the event
• Precoated, interlocking assembly that can be installed and removed by a small team in approximately three hours for quick event turnover
• Storeable in a single container for optimal portability
• Among the most resilient and comfortable surfaces on the market, suitable for world-class events
“Rebound Ace Portable is an exceptional choice for exhibitions and tournaments that do not have a permanent facility, with proven performance at similar high-profile events to the Laver Cup,” said Steve Lock, global vice president, CSS. “During the Laver Cup’s inagaural year, the significance of this court system will be its ability to put the focus where it belongs – on the players and the game.”
