SnapSports named newest sponsor of USATH
USA Team Handball today introduced Utah-based SnapSports as its official playing surface provider.
The four-year partnership creates a comprehensive alliance between the two organizations, with SnapSports accepting a seat on the USA Team Handball National Board of Directors and providing its premium sports flooring system in customized red-white-and-blue for USA Team Handball's signature events. The first competition to take place on "National Court" will be the 2009 Club Championships in Elgin, Illinois.
SnapSports Vice-President of Sales, Dan Wollman, went with USA Team Handball directors and management to the 21st IHF World Championships in Zagreb Croatia, where he hosted some of the company's European distributors.
"SnapSports is excited to join USA Team Handball as a sponsor. We feel the sport has great potential for growth in the United States with the development plan and outstanding leadership assembled at USA Team Handball," said Wollman. "As one of the most popular Olympic team sports, we felt it was important for our company to establish a strong relationship and global presence with the U.S. national governing body. We look forward to getting world class athletes of this exciting sport on our new Bounceback ShockTower suspended sports surface."
SnapSports' patented courts "snap" together and can easily be assembled by volunteers in just a few hours. The floors provide both lateral and vertical "give" - reducing injuries to athletes.
