California Sports Surfaces Selected To Provide Court Surfaces For The 2018 Laver Cup

ANDOVER, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Innovative Chemical Products (the ICP Group) and their leading sport
surface brand, California Sports Surfaces, have been selected to provide
the court surface for the 2018 Laver Cup in Chicago, Illinois, USA. The
event will be held September 21st through 23rd at
the United Center. This is the second edition of the Laver Cup, a men’s
tennis tournament between teams from Europe and the rest of the world.

This year’s event features the world’s best tennis professionals playing
on custom indoor hard courts specially constructed for this event. The
courts feature unique black surface systems provided by California
Sports Surfaces, which improves contrast for both players and viewers.
Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Juan Martin del Potro, and Alexander
Zverev are just a few high ranking professional tennis players confirmed
to play at the event.

California Sports Surfaces, a brand of ICP’s Building Solutions Group,
is an industry-leading global manufacturer of sports and recreational
surfaces. In 1953, they invented a durable, comfortable multi-layered,
cushioned surface that enhanced athletic performance and promoted more
fluid game play. This technology led to many California Sports Surfaces
brands being regularly selected for use at the world’s most prestigious
events, including every US Open since 1978, several NCAA Championships,
the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, the 2008 Summer Olympics
in Beijing, China, the Australian Open, and countless other venues.

California Sports Surfaces will provide installation and dismantling
services for the Laver Cup’s portable timber match and practice courts.
The company is also planning to supply promotional roll-out mini courts
for marketing activities around Chicago in support of the event.

“Last year at the inaugural Laver Cup in Prague, California Sports
Surfaces provided the portable court surface. This year our role in the
event has expanded, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to help. When our
world-class sports surfaces are selected for world-class events, like
the Laver Cup, it is the highest compliment a company can receive. We
look forward to working with them on future projects,” said Tom Magner,
Director of Sales, California Sports Surfaces.
