Neave Sports has been a proud Flex Court partner since 2008. While we love installing the Flex Court product and seeing the smiles on our client’s faces (and their kids!), we also enjoy seeing the many Flex Court installations from around the country that touch so many people.
A great example of this was the Flex Court basketball court installed for the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Midnight Madness event. Below is the full press release from the event.
Keep up the great work, Flex Court! And best of luck Blazers!
FLEX COURT® AND THE UNIVERSITY of ALABAMA at BIRMINGHAM HOST “HOOPS on the HAASE-PHALT” EVENT
The UAB athletics director had no idea what to expect for the inaugural “Hoops on the Haasephalt” outdoor basketball event on October 19, 2012. Neither did anyone else. But after an estimated 2,500 people showed up for the event, to promote UAB men’s and women’s basketball, the event was deemed a success by all.
An outdoor court was constructed on 14th Street South by Heritage Hall on the SOFT STEP™ All-Weather Outdoor Basketball Court by FLEX COURT®.
“Unbelievable turnout,” Athletic Director Mackin said. “The turnout of the students and the fans were very, very exciting. This was really a great event.”
FLEX COURT® is extremely excited to partner with the University of Alabama at Birmingham to help make this event a real success for their entire basketball program.
“I thought it was fantastic”, Coach Haase said. “It was a complete success for UAB. It’s the first actual midnight madness-type thing with basketball. It really was a success. Everybody enjoyed it. It boosted the morale of the school”.
