The party stared on a Custom Built stage with DJ Spinning music all event long, and the court was the center of attention with the acrobatic dunk team performing mesmerizing dunks on the court. Not to be shown up by the DJ, the Brooklyn United Marching band showed up and showed off their talent by performing on the court.

The event was capped off when Carmelo Anthony came out and talked about his new line of clothing that is exclusively at Macy’s stores. It wouldn’t be a complete event unless the Ninja Turtles were there to pump the crowd up, and they took a moment from fighting crime to be a part of the event.

Tennis Court Resurfacing – The Truth on Acrylic Coatings

Most Acrylic coating suppliers recommend “Resurfacing” your outdoor tennis court every 3-5 years depending on the amount of usage and environmental exposure. This resurfacing can range from a simple low cost color finish system to higher level cushioned coatings over full overlay(s).

The most common problem with outdoor tennis courts is cracking which is caused, in part, by the natural tendency to shrink as it weathers and ages. Asphalt Courts have a tendency to crack more easily due to weather exposure while Concrete Courts will crack less over longer time but they are more difficult to apply proper color systems on and therefore also more expensive to recolor.

There are a multitude of Crack Repair materials and systems for various sizes and types of cracks some lasting longer than others and therefore it is important to choose the right repair material for each court condition and geographical location. Once a court begins to develop structural cracks, there is a very good chance the existing cracks will grow in width and length and more will develop over time. Choose the Right Crack Repair System for your court.

The Truth on Acrylic Coatings is that there are a multitude of Acrylic Coating options requiring careful selection. Here is a simple snapshot:

Low Grade Acrylic Coatings – Cost range from $3,500 up to $5,000 per Court application and will last 3-5 years

High Grade Acrylic Coatings – Cost range from $6,500 up to $8,000 per Court application and will last 8-10 years

Cushioned Acrylic Coatings for Tournament Play – Cost Range from $12,500 up to $20,000 per Court application and will last 5-10 years depending on Acrylic Grade

FLEX COURT® Surface – Cost range from $22,000 up to $27,000 per Court application depending on each court crack repair requirements and will last for 25+ Years with a high grade crack repair system before new crack repair is needed, hence, remove the FLEX COURT® surface, repair cracks and re-install the FLEX COURT® surface for another 25 years use. Why does FLEX COURT® last so long? The FLEX COURT® surface contains a Composite Material selection with High Level UV Stabilizer System incorporated throughout the entire product and rated at a 1% annual color loss system as of 2013 material compositions. FLEX COURT® is a Cushioned Fast Dry Surface is Rated as Medium Fast by ITF and USTA. For more information call 800-847-4404.

Before, During and After Court Resurfacing

Faced with a court that was in poor repair, this Flex Court customer was faced with the following choices.

1 – Shut down and Demolish the courts a 3 day

2 – Demolish and Rebuild the courts, which would be 3 to 4 week process at 2 to 3 times the cost of just the demolition.

3 – Repair the existing court and resurface with Flex Court at the same cost as demolition, and only a few days of downtime.

What went on during those few days?

Day 0 – The Before

Day 1 – The Prep

Day 2 – The Resurfacing

That was it. For less than half of what it would have cost to completely replace the courts, and just 2 days, not only did they get new courts, but they managed to get a longer lasting, lower maintenance surface that

In the end, what sold them on Flex Court was the Flex Court sales and support team’s complete honest and open presentation of cost numbers and that the Flex Court all-weather, cushioned surface characteristics and appeal were better than what the customer was originally looking for.

FlexCourt Appears On Secret Millionaire!

Flex Court is proud to have helped out Steve Kaplan, a very well known author and business consultant, who was recently on ABC’s inspiring Secret Millionaire. On the show, Steve was taken to parts of Chicago he had never known and exposed himself to areas of great need. This included visits to H.O.M.E., which provides housing assistance to the elderly. Steve was also to see all the great work done by BINDonated, which collects supplies and items from offices and hotels and provides them to those in need.

Last but not least, Kaplan was able to work closely with a non-profit organization known as Kids Off The Block , which provides children a safe place to hang out after school. Thanks in large part to Steve, the boys and girls at Kids Off The Block now have their very own FlexCourt Basketball Court!

When I needed to have a first class court built right away, FlexCourt was there to make it happen. They were quick, professional and right on budget – Steve Kaplan, Secret Millionaire 2012

Everyone at Flex Court just wanted to thank Steve Kaplan for all his generous contributions to the areas of need in Chicago. We’d also like to extend our gratitude to all the hard working members at Kids Off The Block for everything they do for the children in Chicago. We hope you enjoy your new FlexCourt and we are overjoyed to have been a part of the experience.
