Plastic grid-type courts have been available for several years but this new court has a patented grid design that allows discs to slide more easily. The secret is the little "bips" that reduce friction along the surface of the disc and allow the discs to slide better, straighter and using less force. There is no maintenance. No beads are required for play. No wax is ever required to seal the surface. Courts are designed for outdoor use as weather will not affect them. Equally awesome at home, indoors, or for multi use areas. Ideally suited for the needs of resorts, camps, condominiums, churches, seniors centres and community centres.
