The American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) has announced the winners of its annual awards program. In various categories, the group named facilities built by its membership that “best exemplify construction excellence.” Of those, a handful received “Project of the Year” status.
Projects were scored individually based on considerations such as layout and design, site work, drainage, base construction, surface, amenities, innovation, and overall impression. Presentation of all the award plaques happened at the group’s recent technical meeting in Ponte Vedra, Florida.
In terms of tennis-related projects, “Indoor Facility of the Year” went to Bishop’s Tennis Inc. (Sterling, Virginia) for its work on the new Montgomery TennisPlex (Boyds, Maryland) while “Residential Facility of the Year” was bestowed on Boston Tennis Court Construction (Hanover, Massachusetts) for a new court in nearby Newton. The “Outdoor Facility of the Year” was claimed by Cape & Island Tennis & Track (Pocassett, Massachusetts) for its upgrading work on Springfield College’s Appleton Tennis Courts.
