The ASBA champions the track and tennis court building community. I have gone to their meetings over the last 20 years. They are an incredible group and they are a great resource, when coaches, ADs and communities want to develop a great track or tennis court.

This is the 2020 awards, sent ot me by the ASBA editor, Mary Helen Sprecher.

This celebrates the top Facilities in 2020.

ASBA Honors Distinguished Sports Facilities

Forest Hill, MD - 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, Pickleball Facilities, Indoor Multipurpose Facilities and Track & Field Facilities. Within some categories, there are divisions; for example, the Sports Field category recognizes single- and multiple-field facilities.

Winners of awards were announced at the Association's Technical Meeting, presented for the first time in a virtual format.

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.
