“Laver Cup” in Chicago

The Laver Cup 2018 was played out in September 2018 at the United Center venue in Chicago. A team competition, the Laver Cup (named after Australian tennis legend Rod Laver) was the brainchild of Roger Federer and his sports agency Team8. Over the three days of the tournament, Team Europe and Team World battled each other for the coveted trophy. The original planning called for the tournament to skip the years of the Summer Olympics, but the inaugural event in 2017 proved so successful that the organisers decided to change to a proper annual format. After three days of hard-fought matches, Team Europe emerged as the clear winner by 13 points to 8.

Sports floor manufacturer HARO Sports supplied its ROME TENNIS portable flooring solution for the event, installing a 1,200 m² tournament court plus an 826 m² practice court. The ROME TENNIS floor with the Rebound Ace top layer is the perfect solution for professional tournaments in sports and multi-purpose arenas, which require rapid changing of the floor covering. No other portable sports court system on the market offers this combination of top performance and unbeatable logistics. The innovative tennis floor is subjectively more comfortable to play on and places less strain on an athlete’s body than conventional hard courts. As a consequence, players tire less easily and the risk of injury declines. At the same time, the floor ensures the same ball bounce and pace as a hard court. A well-drilled team is able to install and dismantle the flooring in just a few hours. The perfect fit of the patented interlocking system that connects the individual modules even eliminates the need to recoat the surface after installation, a process which is normally required for portable hard courts. The high quality of both basic construction and finish guarantees problem-free tournaments and top-class performance.

2018 Commonwealth Games

After the Olympic Games and the Asian Games, the Commonwealth Games is the third largest multi-sports event in the world. In addition to most Olympic disciplines, the sports programme also includes some sports that are only popular in the Commonwealth countries, such as squash and cricket. More than 4,400 athletes from 71 nations took part in the competitions in 18 disciplines from 4 to 15 April 2018. The organisers of the Commonwealth Games had already opted for HARO Sports back in 2014, when a number of temporary centre courts were used in the competitions in Glasgow. This year too, HARO Sports was the official outfitter for the basketball competitions in cooperation with Australian partner Aura Sports. The temporary HARO Rome 20 was installed as a 628 m² FIBA certified court. The exceptionally high HARO quality standards are achieved in manufacture thanks to the QMS quality assurance system and through compliance with the strict ISO 9001 standard.    The floor boards are connected by means of the patented interlocking system. This ensures a seamless surface that is completely even at the joints, which minimises the risk of injury for players and allows perfect ball rebound. The multi-layer construction of the HARO Rome 20 floor offers the advantage of elasticity and strength, while the patented PERMADUR seal features perfect grip. The players can achieve top performance since the floor feels soft, yet the ball bounces perfectly. The HARO sports floor is also a highlight visually. The court markings in the striking emerald green of the “Gold Coast 2018” emblem contrast beautifully with the oak wood floor.

Vocational training centre

Hamburg‘s largest vocational training centre for commerce and administration offers training for some 4,000 students and is the largest new construction project in the vocational training sector. Four previously independent vocational colleges have been merged on the site to create two amalgamated colleges. Each is located in a separate block with its own courtyard, classrooms and instructor workstations. The third building is used by both colleges. A central Piazza and a shared canteen act as the meeting place for the students.

To make sure the students can achieve optimum performance at all times, regardless of the weather, the new sports hall with its two fields has been equipped with high-quality sports flooring manufactured by Rosenheim’s sports flooring specialist HARO Sports. HARO Sports has been playing in the very highest league in its industry for decades now. FC Bayern Munich has also been relying on HARO Sports products for a long time. Among other things, FC Bayern’s training centre was equipped last year with HARO sports flooring and protective wall.

A sports floor measuring 810 m² with a lino surface in a red marbled look was installed in the sports hall. Thanks to its preassembled double-swing beam system, the high-performance Munich flooring model features outstanding properties tailored to soften the physiological impact of sport. With its excellent elasticity, the floor is gentle on athletes’ joints and locomotor systems. HARO’s protective walls were again the product of choice: “Protect Classic Plywood” with acoustic perforations in the Pine Tessin textured surface fulfils the client’s specifications to perfection.

This is the most important tournament in women’s tennis, similar to the Davis Cup for men. The USA emerged as winners this time for the first time in 17 years.

Sports floor manufacturer HARO Sports supplied its ROME TENNIS portable flooring solution for both of these tournaments. The innovative tennis floor is more pleasant to play on and subjects the player’s body to less stressing than conventional hard courts.

Such flexibility is indispensable for intensively used sports facilities in today‘s sports and event world. The high quality of both the basic construction and the finish ensure that ROME TENNIS can be installed and removed hundreds of times. The ROME TENNIS floor is therefore the perfect solution for professional tournaments in sports and multi-purpose arenas, which require quick changing of the floor covering.

Apolda’s new, large sports hall

The new recreation centre in Apolda, a city in the eastern German state of Thuringia, was opened in August 2016. It has been the home of many sports clubs and the athletic venue for many students ever since. HARO Sports Rosenheim delivered the perfect sports floor covering for this impressive three-field sports hall.

One of Germany’s most modern three-field sports halls is located in Apolda, a county seat in the eastern state of Thuringia. Apolda is the administrative centre of the Thuringian district of the Weimar area, forming a triangle with Weimar and Jena. The architecturally eye-catching facility blends harmoniously into the surroundings thanks to its sloping design.

The playing surface, 1,250 m² overall, is ideally equipped for all athletic needs. HARO sports floors play their part as well. With the help of an array of different colours in the floor, the areas for different ball sports are clearly identified and segmented. The court for European handball is defined by an area of 684 m² in green and a space of 205 m² in black. The remaining areas are beige and delineate other functional parts of the sports hall.

The hall uses the multi-purpose sports floor ATHEN 70, whose tremendous durability is due in particular to its special elastic layer of composite foam made of bonded polyurethane. The dual-layer pressure-distribution panel applied on top of it yields excellent elasticity, creating a cushion for athletes’ joints and musculoskeletal systems.

Enthusiastic kids, teens and adults alike are faced with another sports icon: the HARO Helsinki 10-10 ash sports floor. Due to its size, the MMTC was a great challenge even for the HARO Sports Flooring specialists, who have successfully completed more than 12,000 projects worldwide.

Numerous credentials – also in the US – as well as their quality and amazing features gave the ‘Made in Germany’ floors the green light. The Helsinki 10-10 model is a sports floor with an elastic layer and, with its construction height of 34.6 mm, is the perfect choice for refurbishment and renovation projects. Due to its homogeneous construction, the floor shows great performance characteristics as well as 60% force reduction for the safety of the athletes and 98% ball rebound. The Helsinki 10-10 model features a 12.6 mm thick HARO sports parquet consisting of a premium choice parquet top layer, which is supported by a top-quality plywood core layer.

In her opening speech in October 2014, the three-time Olympic gold medalist in beach volleyball said the MMTC was a palace and she was very proud that it was named after her. Misty May Treanor significantly contributed to the popularity of beach volleyball with her particular playing technique, which was the reason why the new sports center in Irvine should carry her name.

Sports floor at more than 3.400 metres altitude

A HARO Sports Flooring and Rebound Ace portable sports floor was opened in mid-July in the airy heights, in a world of rocks, ice and snow. The goal was the Jungfraujoch, the Top of Europe, and namely called, Europe’s roof.  And rightly: with 3.454 metres, Bergstation is the highest railway station in Europe. Packed in multiple boxes and with a total weight of around twelve tonnes, a HARO Sports Rome tennis floor was firstly transported on a rack railway and later, it was carried to its place of destination on a piste caterpillar. On the Alpine glaciers a tennis show-match between the tennis ace Roger Federer and the popular ski racer Lindsay Vonn took place on the 16th July with the occasion of the opening of Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven. Habegger, the event organizer commissioned by Lindt & Sprüngli, has chosen a HARO Sports Rome tennis floor because it is portable, so it can be set up and dismounted in a very short time and it is already finished coated.

The HARO Sports Rome tennis floor _ on a surface of 800 sq. m. _ can be set up and dismantled in just a few hours. It is ideal for certain events which mostly take one only day. Due to the perfect fit of the individual panels with their patented locking system, this floor model does not even need the additional coating necessary for portable Hardcourts. So was then the floor made in Rosenheim, at the company headquarters of HARO Sports, ready coated in the Lindt design corporative colours: blue on the surface together with the golden logo. Once everything was completely prepared for the performance of both sport stars at the show-tournament, the lorry was sent to Switzerland. The sports floor was transported for nine kilometres from the small Scheidegg up to the Jungfraujoch on a rack railway. After seven kilometres, it went through a tunnel, where the railway crossed the mountains Eiger and Mönch. A piste caterpillar took over the last metres of the transport. The different elements were assembled under bright sunshine. Cold and humidity could not affect the sports floor and its performance.
