FIBA Women Afrobasket pre-olympic tournament 2016
Location: Yaoundé - CAMEROUN ,
In 2016 the city of Yaoundé in Cameroon hosted the women’s Olympic qualification tournament in partnership with FIBA (the International Basketball Association).
An important factor in the Architect’s decision to choose a Junckers sports floor for this event was the long term technical partnership between Junckers and FIBA.
Junckers has many years experience of designing sports floor systems for the highest levels of sport. Junckers floors have always met the highest technical demands made by elite athletes at top competition level.
The agreement became a reality after the close cooperation between the French and African Basketball union.
A court measuring 608m2 was laid using the Junckers Portable A4 floor system with a factory-applied silk matt lacquer finish. The A4 floor system comprises prefabricated lightweight panels in solid beech, with sprung elements factory- fitted to the underside, all of which makes the system very easy to handle and fast to install.
