ANDOVER, Mass. – February 24, 2022 – Plexipave, a California Sports Surfaces brand, has once again been chosen as the surface of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California.

Plexipave has been the BNP Paribas Open’s surface system of choice for nearly 25 years. The Purple and Green courts are instantly recognizable to tennis fans across the world, and the proprietary Plexipave IW system was formulated specifically to provide optimized performance for the arid desert conditions.

Plexipave IW provides a higher bounce and slow pace of play to compensate for the location’s minimal humidity and its potential effect on tennis balls. The Plexipave family includes both hardcourt and cushioned systems, offering tennis facilities everywhere the highest levels of performance, texture, longevity, and athletic capability.

“The Indian Wells Tennis Garden is possibly the most iconic facility in all of professional tennis and it is both an honor and a privilege to continue to be chosen and to be able to add our own little splash of color to this stunning setting,” added Tom Magner, Director of Product Development for California Sports Surfaces.

California Sports Surfaces is the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic sports surfacing systems and has routinely been chosen by a variety of the world’s most recognizable tennis tournaments, including the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
