Athletics to upgrade the Main Gym

During the winter break, with support from the administration and many CAC community members, CAC has accomplished an extensive update to the main gym equipment. Working with the CAC maintenance department and Schelde/Sportex Dubai, CAC has installed 6 new and up to date basketball baskets, replacing the old baskets. A new format of lines has been painted on a newly sanded and refinished floor- including a main basketball court, 2 small side basketball courts, a main volleyball court, 2 side volleyball courts, and 5 badminton courts. The upgrade work also included a new center dividing curtain and upgraded floor mount volleyball t-stand connections for all 3 volleyball courts. It is exciting to have the up to date equipment in the CAC gym to join the new bleachers installed in August.

New basketball baskets have also been installed on the CAC outdoor basketball court. Quality Schelde portable baskets replace the main baskets, and 4 side baskets to upgrade the outdoor court in line with the new court surface installed in August.

Many thanks to all contributors to this project.
