This court combines
the full size play of the original tournament Roll-A-Court version but
with a thinner vinyl that not only provides a cost savings, but allows
the court to be set up with just one person.
For best play the official Arco brand "bevelled" discs are strongly recommended (see below)*.
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. Typically
only 1/5 gallon of Nella Sealer is required to recoat the courts once
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 3/32 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.
