Tennis on the USS Midway - San Diego, CA

Aboard the deck of the USS Midway on Monday July 16, 2012, two women labeled as “The future of American Tennis” gave a demonstration, prior to the Mercury Insurance Open tennis tournament at La Costa Resort and Spa in San Diego.

19-year-old Sloane Stephens and 20-year-old Christina McHale played a fun tennis match with a few sailors on a half-sized tennis court. They were playing on Sport Court’s PowerGame surface.

  “It's nice to do with Sloane. It's fun to do something different that we don't do every day.” Said McHale.

PowerGame is the #1 and official modular tile of the USTA. The court was unique as it was part of The CenterCourt program for 10 and Under Tennis. PowerGame tiles are the safest and highest-performing tennis surface and feature Lateral Forgiveness ™ and impact protection.

Madonna Inn Pink Tennis Courts

 Sport Court of Southern California provided more than 14,000 square feet of custom, bright “Madonna” pink and neon blue acrylic tennis surfacing for the Madonna Inn Resort and Spa.

“The tennis courts at The Madonna Inn have been a long time in the making. About 40 years ago, Mr. Madonna promised to build tennis courts as a gift to Mrs. Madonna. We've made good on that old promise and just finished a regulation and junior tennis court along with basketball court. To keep it unique for our guests and to stay consistent with our theme, we colored the courts pink! Sport Court had never made a pink court but were up to the challenge and did a wonderful job. Their professionalism and quality workmanship exceeded our expectations and left us very satisfied.” said Clint Pearce, President of Madonna Enterprises.

 “The project was the most unique color combination that has ever been done, and unlike anything that I’ve seen in my 35 years of building and servicing tennis courts.” said Paul Geyer, Sport Court tennis court specialist.

The Madonna Inn Resort and Spa announced its tennis facilities will offer a regulation tennis court as well as a full basketball court and, QuickStart®, or 10 and Under Tennis court.

The Madonna family requested a custom pigment that had to be matched perfectly.

“We are honored that Sport Court® was chosen to build the vibrant tennis and basketball courts at the Madonna Inn. This project provided a unique challenge in matching the Madonna Inn "pink" known around the world,” said Scott Cleere, project administrator and San Luis Obispo resident.

The Madonna Inn is widely identified for its combination of thematic rooms, eccentric furniture and imaginative atmosphere. The newest addition to the facilities is nothing short of “over the top”.

“Thanks to the "out of the box" thinking of the management team at the Madonna Inn San Luis Obispo is now the home of the only permanent pink tennis and basketball facility in the country and perhaps the world,” said Cleere.

See for yourself, visit the Madonna Inn and get a bright pink work out if your travels take you through the Central Coast.
