This is the original,
official full size tournament Roll-A-Court. Used for many years in tournaments
across Canada, the US and Europe.
The ROLL-A-COURT is shipped
pre-waxed with 2 coats of Nella Sealer and is ready for immediate use.
The only maintenance is an occasional coat of sealer-wax to protect
the surface. (1/5 gallon of Nella Seal typically to recoat)
CARE OF ROLL-A-COURT
The Roll-A-Court is made of an extremely flexible Vinyl/Rubber composition and is custom colored and embossed. The thickness is less than 1/8 inch. Size is 6 x 40 and the lines are painted white.
The courts have 2 coats of sealer pre-applied before shipping.
One thing you must be careful of: When rolling court on core leave some core at each end and line up core with dead line on court so it is straight across.
Start to roll and make sure corners are tucked in properly or they will fold over.
Proceed to roll to other end, and if court is not even stand on end that has core showing, hold onto loose end, let some air get in and court will slide to floor. Then tighten and tape middle and each end with duct tape.
If placing in box keep loose end of court facing up so it does not fold over.
Use plastic beads sparingly, and save by collecting and running through a window screen to remove dirt and re-use. Glass beads of a good quality can be used (not recommended), but may require sealer applied more often as it contains some broken glass, and you must ensure that the sealer does not wear off or the surface will wear/cut and shorten life of the court.
Depending on use, courts must have a thin coat of Nella-Seal applied to protect the surface. This may be required yearly but it depends on use. Sealer is applied by shaking bottle to put a puddle on court, then spreading out with an applicator. Drying time is 4 hours to roll up and 24 hours before use.
If the Roll-A-Court
is cared for properly you can expect many years of enjoyment.
