    Elmer – I’m replying to let you know that in Scugog (Blackstock) we have painted white (stenciled) lines right on the concrete floor or the old hockey arena. The surface itself was never intended to do anything more than hold water (mostly level, mostly flat, mostly shiny) and makes for “drifty” courts. but is very playable – we have 17 courts marked out but I believe there are a couple we avoid due to uneven surface. Due to other uses of the arena, our lines tend to wear (chip, flake) and need re-doing after a couple of years. Let me know if you have any other questions.
    Cheers, Bill

    Elmer: I agree with the comment from Bill above. I am a Florida player and only really played in Ontario last year. Last year In Ontario, I played on mats, vinyl flooring and on concrete hockey and curling rinks painted as Bill has described in London and St. Mary’s. I was more than pleasantly surprised when I played on the concrete flooring. Initially I thought they would be very difficult but I found them to be quite good. Some were “drifty” but not more so than some courts I have played on in Florida. In my opinion, you should strongly consider painted concrete flooring. I am sure you can use shuffle court waxes on them e.g. Nella Seal and of course proper beads to make them slippery. Good Luck. . . John Mickle, Ancaster, Ontario
    p.s. there are many very good shufflers in Ontario who can give you proper advice so keep researching. . .
