Any particular surface/ finish that will stand up to multiple people kicking up and sliding up and down. Thought of whiteboard as in AFT's Diane vid but wasn't sure how it would cope with shoes.

Or should I just put something up and accept that it will need replacing every now and again?

Cheers, kempie

I use a $10 sheet of white board from Home Depot. After 6 months it does have some scratches but no big deal. I write on the perimeter of the board or in the middle when no HSPU are involved. I have found that socks only on the feet are the best way to do HSPU, shoes just have too much grab.

We put stall mats on one of our walls. They can take all kinds of punishment.
