After the Olympic Games and the Asian Games, the Commonwealth Games is the third largest multi-sports event in the world. In addition to most Olympic disciplines, the sports programme also includes some sports that are only popular in the Commonwealth countries, such as squash and cricket. More than 4,400 athletes from 71 nations took part in the competitions in 18 disciplines from 4 to 15 April 2018.
The organisers of the Commonwealth Games had already opted for HARO Sports back in 2014, when a number of temporary centre courts were used in the competitions in Glasgow. This year too, HARO Sports was the official outfitter for the basketball competitions in cooperation with Australian partner Aura Sports. The temporary HARO Rome 20 was installed as a 628 m² FIBA certified court. The exceptionally high HARO quality standards are achieved in manufacture thanks to the QMS quality assurance system and through compliance with the strict ISO 9001 standard.
The floor boards are connected by means of the patented interlocking system. This ensures a seamless surface that is completely even at the joints, which minimises the risk of injury for players and allows perfect ball rebound. The multi-layer construction of the HARO Rome 20 floor offers the advantage of elasticity and strength, while the patented PERMADUR seal features perfect grip. The players can achieve top performance since the floor feels soft, yet the ball bounces perfectly.
The HARO sports floor is also a highlight visually. The court markings in the striking emerald green of the “Gold Coast 2018” emblem contrast beautifully with the oak wood floor.
