What's New in Tennis Courts? A Lot!

ASBA’s popular book, Tennis Courts: A Construction and Maintenance Manual, is getting ready for its next edition. The joint editorial board (JEB) is hard at work on this book, which is expected to be published in late spring 2015.

The JEB met during the Technical Meeting, and has continued to edit and adapt the book since that time. The new publication is expected to be even more concise and readable, incorporating information on rule clarifications, updates to existing diagrams and more.

The book will include new information, such as:

  • New information on lighting systems, including LED!

  • Updates to the section on 36-foot and 60-foot tennis courts

  • Clarifications throughout the book

  • Streamlining and editing throughout the book, allowing for answers to be more easily located than ever before

The book is one of ASBA’s all-time best-sellers and this issue is expected to be even more popular. It’s sold not only by ASBA but by the USTA, and is available on as well.

Purchasers include builders, design professionals, specifiers, contractors, suppliers and owners/users, including schools, colleges, parks and recreation departments, club owners and managers and current and prospective owners of residential tennis courts. Most purchasers of this manual are planning projects for the very near future. These include clubs contemplating resurfacing jobs, to homeowners looking to build a backyard tennis court, to parks departments looking for a new facility design. And you can make sure that your company’s name is seen by all of them.

Want to be a part of it? How would you like having your company’s name in front of the multiple readers of this publication? Here’s your chance. ASBA is now accepting advertising in the book. To encourage more manufacturers, designers and builders to advertise in this special manual, the association has reduced the rates for full color ads on non-preferred chapter divider pages and for all black and white advertising. The one-eighth page business card-size ads for contractors are just $195.

To receive the advertising information, call 410-730-9595 or e-mail Cynthia Sanchez at ASBA headquarters,
