December 11, 2009

Andover, MA — Plexipave, the world’s largest selling brand of acrylic tennis court coatings, is pleased to announce that the Capitala World Tennis Championship will be played on their Plexicushion Prestige tennis surface. The Capitala World Tennis Championship will bring the world’s best players to Abu Dhabi for the three day tournament that starts off the 2010 tennis season.

This single elimination series of matches will be played at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex at Zayed Sports City, seating up to 5,000 spectators. Competing for $250,000 is not the only incentive in the winner-takesall championship, as several awaited rival re-matches may occur. Opening December 31st, this match will set the pace for the tournament’s six competing players as well as the highly anticipated 2010 tournaments leading into January 19th Australian Open.

“Plexipave worked closely with IMG and Bin Sabt Traders LLC, the local authorized applicator of Plexicushion, to insure the surface is similar in all play characteristics to the Australian Open series that follows the tournament,” said Art Tucker, Vice President of Plexipave.

Plexicushion Prestige, a full-cushioned tennis court surface is highly regarded for delivering uniform ball bounce with consistent speed. The surface of the Australian Open, Plexicushion System combines the outstanding durability of Plexipave with the shock-absorbing properties of EPDM rubber cushioning. This tennis surface responds to body impact and reduces fatigue on the players’ legs, knees, ankles and feet.

Plexipave is the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic sports surfacing systems and surface preparation products. Plexipave Systems are used at ATP and WTA Tournaments such as Del Ray Beach, Memphis, Indian Wells and Los Angeles.
