ASBA Honors Distinguished Sports Facilities

ASBA 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.

The announcement of winning projects is one of the most eagerly anticipated parts of the Technical Meeting. This year’s meeting, held in Ponte Vedra, Florida, included announcements of the overall winners in all categories, held during the opening breakfast of the meeting. The winners of the facilities of the year, meanwhile, are named during the Closing Dinner.
