The evolution of the Basketball courtThe game of basketball was started by a professor, Dr. Naismith on a cold winter day when he had a gym class full of students that were unable to go outside to expend their energy in Massachusetts. With two peach baskets in hand in December of 1891 the game of basketball was created.
The rules that were written that cold December day remain much the same today however, the basketball court has evolved over the years. In fact the first court was half the size of the now standard 94 foot NBA court and it didn’t have the official lines or markings that we see today.
Sports flooring trendsSports flooring certainly has evolved over the years as they are now painted with transparent paint to achieve a stain-like appearance. According to our very own, Jimmy Waters of Arizona Hardwood Flooring “One of the biggest things we’re seeing more and more of in sports floors is the usage of transparent paint to achieve a stain-like appearance,” He goes on to state that “People are really wanting to see the wood show through the paint in lieu of a solid color surface.” This is especially popular in the graphics and the solid painted areas like borders and solid keys.
Another style change that we’ve seen was on a racquetball court that we installed. We mounted purpleheart and ebony in the lines instead of just painting in the red and black lines. Overall, this approach enhances the aesthetics of the floor and it makes long-term maintenance easier.
