Tarkett Sports Partners with Good Sports to Launch “Better Tomorrow” Program
The program aims to help youth athletes in need with the opportunity to participate in team and individual sports.
Within Tarkett Sports there is one resounding core principal: “Stop at nothing to make a difference”.
It’s best demonstrated by the founders of our renowned brands. They were all aligned in their purpose to create a better and safer surface for athletes. The founders of our FieldTurf brand knew that there was a better solution to the synthetic turf carpets of the 1960s and thus long-pile infilled turf was invented and revolutionized an industry. John T. Beynon created a specialized high-performance system and grew Beynon Sports to become a global leader in track & field. Our GrassMaster Solutions brand pioneered hybrid turf and is now recognized across the world and our Tarkett Indoor and Renner Sports brands have grown into leading experts in their segments.
Tarkett Sports surfaces help unite communities, forge teammates and friendships, teach essential life-lessons, and offer youth athletes the opportunity to strive for greatness. Unfortunately, the reality is that not all kids have the same opportunity to participate in team sports. Without access to the proper equipment, and the means to procure them, many are left on the sidelines.
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new program “Better Tomorrow” and our partnership with Good Sports. Together, we’re confident that we can make an impact, and help Make A Difference for youth athletes across North America.
At Tarkett Sports, our team is driven by sport and many of our team members have even performed on the biggest stages. Sport plays a major role in our lives and we believe every athlete deserves their chance. Good Sports has helped serve millions of kids by donating the necessary equipment to get them in the game. Tarkett Sports will help support Good Sports’ efforts and create opportunities for youth athletes.
”Our partnership with Tarkett Sports is integral to the success of our organization.” said Melissa Harper, CEO & Co-Founder, Good Sports. “Together we will be able to increase access to sports for kids in need across the country. We are thrilled to partner together in critical work”.
“We’re honored to partner with Good Sports and their remarkable team.” said Eric Daliere, President – Tarkett North America & Tarkett Sports. “This partnership will help lay the foundation of our “Better Tomorrow” program and allow us to continuously strive to Make A Difference and an impact for those that need it most”.
