PHOTOS OF AWARD-WINNING PROJECTS IN INDUSTRY MAGAZINES

ASBA and Tennis Industry Magazinehave joined forces to bring the sports facility construction industry a better way of honoring its own. Tennis award winners will be featured in Tennis Industry Magazine. 

Additionally, ASBA uses photos in other magazines, including (but not limited to) SportsTurf, SportsField Management, Track & Field and Cross Country Coach, RunBlogRun, PTR Tennis Pro, Athletic Management and more

Photos of award-winning projects in all categories are often featured in the articles ASBA writes for these and other various magazines, and in its publications. Awards have been used successfully in the marketing and advertising programs of our members, and that ASBA presents all award winners with a free publicity kit to help them spread the word about their win.

ASBA AWARDS PROGRAM

Introduction and General Information

The purpose of the awards program is to support the ASBA’s goal of promoting excellence in sports facility construction. The program recognizes those facilities built or designed by ASBA members which have attained this goal. Awards will be made to the facility with recognition to participating ASBA members. Awards are granted to as many facilities as meet the standard of excellence as determined by the judging committee.

Distinguished Facility Award Categories

Indoor Tennis Facility, Outdoor Tennis Facility, Residential Tennis Facility
Indoor Pickleball Facility, Outdoor Pickleball Facility, Residential Pickleball Facility
Indoor Track Facility, Outdoor Track Facility
Track & Field Facility, Single Field Facility, Multi Field Facility
Courts & Recreational Multi-Purpose Field House Facility, Courts & Recreational Multi-Purpose Gymnasium Facility, Courts & Recreational Multi-Purpose Fitness & Wellness

Following their review of the awards applications in the above categories, on a pass/fail system, the individual members of the awards committee are allowed to pick three projects in each category, which they consider the best of all of those they have judged.

NOTE: Indoor tennis courts and running tracks may be recognized either in the tennis or track categories or in the courts & rec category. They then review these projects and decide where they rank to determine the Facility of the Year winners. Award winners in all facility categories are notified of their status and encouraged to come to the Technical Meeting to accept their awards. Announcement of the Facility of the Year is made at the Technical Meeting, but not announced in advance. If you submit a track and field project and there is an error found on one portion (either track or field), this will no longer eliminate the entire project. For instance, if you fail the track portion but the field portion is correct and worthy of an award, you will win a single field award instead of a track and field award.

The Facility of the Year award is subjective and the judges take a strong consideration based on what is provided in the descriptions of the project. The judges also consider the project difficulties/obstacles and the solutions. Please fill out the detailed information to help convince the judges why your project should be the Facility of the Year winner. Facility of the Year gives up to three awards, gold, silver and bronze. If the judges feel there are not 3 projects worthy of the awards, they are not required to award them.

Entries for the ASBA Awards Program are judged based solely on the information submitted by the applicant. ASBA does not visit or inspect facilities submitted, and an award does not constitute a determination by ASBA that the facility conforms to all applicable construction and safety standards.

Please ensure that the information contained in your awards application is accurate and complete. Submission of an application with inaccurate or misleading information may result in rejection of the application and disqualification from the program.
