POSTED ON 9/16/10 | Four specially designed Sport Court® dodgeball courts will be installed for the 2010 DodgeBarrage, charity dodgeball tournament, held on Saturday, September 18th at the Salt Palace Convention Center. All proceeds will benefit Deron William’s Point of Hope Foundation, Kyle Korver Foundation and Ronnie Price Foundation.
“We are excited to partner with these foundations,” said Ron Cerny, President and CEO of Connor Sport Court International. “We share the goals and ideals of these wonderful organizations and are pleased to assist them in helping to improve the lives of families and children living in our communities.”
The court installations will be provided by Sport Court West, Utah’s Sport Court Dealer for more than 30 years.
The DodgeBarrage event will consist of 96 dodgeball teams, 8-10 players each, ages 18 and older. Teams will be split into morning and afternoon pools, with teams from each session qualifying for a single elimination bracket play. The championship game is scheduled to start between 4:30 & 5:00 p.m. Spectators will be charged $10 per person and children under 12 will be admitted free of charge with a paying adult.
In addition, spectators can expect to see all three NBA players at the event participating plus other Utah Jazz teammates.
Sport Court is the world leader in outdoor and indoor playing surfaces. Their surfaces have been used in the Bejing Olympics, in the NCAA Volleyball Championships for the last 17 years; they have also been the official volleyball surface of the USA Volleyball Championships for more than 20 years and have been approved for outdoor competition by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) since 1994.
Furthermore, Sport Court has been named the official modular surface for the USTA and has worked jointly with them to help promote children’s tennis at numerous events throughout the country including many at the White House.
