Tarkett signs a partnership with Le Mans Professional Basketball Club
Signed for three seasons, and until 2015, this partnership includes the installation of a new playing surface, equivalent to those used in the world famous NBA tournaments.
The brand new “Sportable” parquet, which has already gained official LNB (Ligue Nationale de Basket), FFBB (Féderation Française de Baskettball) and Euroligue approval, offers world-class aesthetics next to an unequalled playing comfort due to an optimal shock absorption, a steady and regular ball rebound and an excellent slip resistance.
The partnership also includes a technical support dimension by the club and its players to impact on the development and improvement of future Tarkett sports surfaces.
The new Sportable surface can be dismantled in just 90 minutes, to give way to other sports events in the same venue or to be transported to another play-off location.
This new partnership between Tarkett Sports and MSB is clearly designed to contribute to the development of the basketball discipline in France and on a national or regional level.
As a matter of fact, Tarkett Sports’ involvement in professional basketball championships relates back to 2005. Engaged alongside the FFBB for the past 7 seasons, Tarkett has throughout the years equipped many of the professional Basketball floors in the French Pro A and Pro B championships: Chalon-sur-Saône, Hyères-Toulon, Strasbourg, Villeurbanne and now MSB.
