Connor Sports and Praters Flooring Redesign Northern Kentucky's Court
3 years ago
Northern Kentucky University unveiled a new design for their Connor Sports basketball court in BB&T Arena Wednesday morning. The new court design, painted and finished by Praters Flooring, features a Norse ship watermarked in a golden hue, with the NKU Norse wordmark in the middle of the ship’s sail at center court.
“We wanted a new, fresh look for the court to showcase the Norse brand,” said Ken Bothof the Northern Kentucky University Athletic Director. “The Norse ship rising through the sea is meant to serve as a metaphor for the uprising of Northern Kentucky athletics.”
Northern Kentucky wanted to redesign their men’s and women’s basketball court without purchasing a new court. Connor Sports and Praters worked with them on a court redesign that could evolve with the university’s brand while allowing the university to keep the Connor Sports hardwood system.
Connor Sports basketball courts have a long lifespan and can withstand multiple redesigns. The courts are created to develop with the university’s image while maintaining its state of the art manufacturing. This characteristic saves schools time and money as the same court can change with the school’s brand and continue to provide a top of the line playing surface for athletes.
We look forward to watching Northern Kentucky’s basketball teams on their newly designed Connor Sports basketball court!
