ASBA's Annual Awards Program Recognizes Tennis, Track, Indoor Facilities

The American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), the national organization for builders and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities, has announced the winners of its annual awards. Awards are presented each year to facilities built by ASBA members, which best exemplify construction excellence.

Awards are presented in various categories: Tennis Courts, Running Tracks, Sports Fields, Indoor Facilities and Track and Field Facilities. Within some categories, there are divisions; for example, the Tennis Court category recognizes facilities in Indoor, Residential and Outdoor divisions.

Presentation of award plaques was made at the Technical Meeting, recently held in Ponte Vedra, Florida. Projects are scored individually based on considerations such as layout and design, site work, drainage, base construction, surface, amenities, innovation and overall impression. Winning entries are those whose cumulative scores meet or exceed the standard.
