In late 2020, the Ben Garza Gymnasium in Corpus Christi, got a huge flooring upgrade. For several years, athletes suffered through playing a variety of sports on the hard unyielding cushioned vinyl floor at the Ben Garza Gym. These vinyl floors cause countless injuries and just don’t age very well. Gym staff and the players were ready for something better.
In 2018, City Parks & Recreation staff contacted South Texas Sport Court searching for a better flooring option. Following a quick phone conversation about the numerous benefits of Sport Court® flooring, city staff decided they needed to see for themselves. Over the next few weeks they visited some of our projects in Corpus Christi and San Antonio. They tested ball bounce and surface friction. They spoke with gym staff to get their opinion about the Sport Court® flooring in their respective gyms. In other words, they did their due diligence and reached the conclusion that Sport Court® Response High Gloss Maple Select gym flooring really was the very best option.
Staff at the Ben Garza Gymnasium were ready to upgrade their floor, but other city staffers were not quite ready to fund the project. Corpus Christi was looking for a new city manager and during this search many projects were put on hold.
