ORLANDO, Fla.- Gerflor, designer and manufacturer of specialized resilient flooring, announced its Taraflex Sports Flooring was selected by the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando for the 25th Annual Youth Basketball of America (YBOA) Championship Games, which were held June 30-July 12.

 

Taraflex has been used in the summer Olympic Games since 1976 and is the preferred solution of numerous NCAA athletic programs and youth sports associations across the United States.

 

"As the second largest convention center in the U.S., it was crucial that the quality of flooring we installed be lined up with the caliber of play that takes place during the YBOA games and other events at the center," said Kathie Canning, OCCC Executive Director. "Taraflex's proven track record combined with its easy installation, removal and great look made it the most logical choice for the convention center."

 

Gerflor and its local partner, Southeastern Surfaces & Equipment, set up the 16 YBOA tournament courts in 72 hours. Upon completion of the YBOA games, Gerflor and SSE provided OCCC facility managers with custom, long-term storage solutions for easy re-use during future events.
