Junckers courts catch the eye at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023

MIES (Switzerland) - The top players in the global game got to showcase their talent while balling on stunning Junckers hardwood sports floors at the hugely successful FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.

Every venue in the hosting cities of Manila, Philippines;  Okinawa, Japan; and Jakarta, Indonesia, had high-performing basketball floors that were customized with painted sponsor branding - and all beautifully carried out by Junckers.

Five high-performing courts of 3700 m² of solid beech

Pre-assembled as lightweight panels and completed with pre-fixed battens, the portable and reusable sports floor system is made from solid beech. The courts also provided super shock absorption and are designed with optimal player safety in mind. 

Additionally, this ultimate sports floor foundation also provided the perfect friction control and ball bounce for the participating players at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023.
