ASBA Announces 2017 Award Winners

Honorees Represent Excellence in Sports Facility Design, Construction for Tennis Courts,
Running Tracks, Sports Fields, Pickleball and Indoor Fieldhouse Venues

Hollywood has its Oscars, the music industry has its Grammys and television has its Emmys. ASBA presented its highest honors when it recognized 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 New Orleans, Louisiana. The meeting was another outstanding success on ASBA’s part, with more than 600 attendees and 60 exhibitors in the trade show.

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.
