1. A modular structure for a sprung floor comprising:
at least two elongate members parallel to an X-axis; and
at least one elongate member parallel to a Y-axis and perpendicular to said X-axis; and
at least two elastomeric pads, each having a planar surface portion; and
said at least two elastomeric pads fixedly engaged, in an upright orientation, with said elongate members parallel to the X axis and with said elongate members parallel to the Y-axis; and
said at least two elastomeric pads fixedly engaged, in an inverted orientation, with said elongate members parallel to the X-axis and with said elongate members parallel to the Y axis; and
at least two performance-surface panels; and
at least one linear, structural channel having a first end and a second end, a right side and a left side and an elongate centerline extending from said first end to said second end; and wherein;
said planar surface portion of said at least two elastomeric pads which are fixedly engaged, in an inverted orientation, with said elongate members parallel to the X-axis and Y-axis being movably engaged with a sub-floor; and
said planar portion of said at least two elastomeric pads which are fixedly engaged, in an upright orientation, with said elongate members parallel to the X-axis and Y-axis being movably engaged with said linear structural channel and said linear structural channel fixedly engaged with adjacent edges of performance-surface panels, said performance-surface panels substantially covering said modular structure, providing a sprung floor.
