December 20, 2010

Andover, MA — Plexipave Sport Surfacing Systems has announced that their Plexicushion Prestige surface has been chosen for the ASB Classic in Auckland, New Zealand. This Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) tournament will be played at the ASB Tennis Centre from January 3 to January 8, 2011. Several top performing players will be competing in this Australian Open lead up event, including Grand Slam champions Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova.

“We are pleased that the tournament and the tennis center selected Plexicushion,” said Art Tucker, Vice President of Plexipave. “Not only do they get a great “grand slam” surface that will bring the top players to New Zealand, but they also have a surface that is comfortable and predictable. This surface will provide a great experience for players of all levels.”

Plexicushion, a full-cushioned tennis court surface, is highly regarded for its medium speed of play as well as its shock-absorbing properties. This tennis surface responds to body impact and reduces fatigue on the players’ legs, knees, ankles and feet. The Australian Open and lead up tournaments have all selected Plexicushion Prestige for the best in uniform and consistent conditions. The surface truly makes a difference.
