Despite the many advantages of outdoor sports facilities, such as space and natural light, indoor complexes offer more efficient sports playing solutions - people don’t have to skip games because of the weather and can play comfortably in a safe, climate-controlled environment. Let’s take a look at some of the greatest benefits of indoor sports facilities and find out why they can be a better option than outdoor arenas.
Indoor track with Mondo Super X 720 surface
Clemson University installed a state-of-the-art banked indoor track with Mondo’s Super X 720 surface in its Indoor Track & Field Complex. The Super X 720 surface was installed in the complex on a straightaway eight-lane sprint track, one high jump apron, two pole vault runways and two long and triple jump runways.
Mark Elliott, Clemson’s head coach for men’s and women’s track & field and cross country, said Mondo is generally recognized as the fastest surface for indoor tracks. In particular, he said, coaches and athletes consider the indoor track at the University of Arkansas, which is a Mondo banked track, to be the fastest in the U.S.
“Everyone wants to compete there, so we wanted to get a track like that one,” he said. “I wanted the track that is considered the fastest, and I think I’m getting that with our new Mondo track.”
