The American Sports Builders Association is accepting applications through June 1 for its annual awards program honoring outstanding athletic facility design and construction.
Awards are presented for tennis courts, sports fields, running tracks and indoor multipurpose facilities.
Within each category there are subdivisions. For example, the tennis court category recognizes residential courts, outdoor courts and indoor courts.
In addition, there are honors in the "Green" competition, for athletic facilities with the most eco-friendly design, construction and operating techniques.
To be eligible for entry into the awards program, a facility must have been designed or built by an ASBA member company. (To look up whether a company is a member, go to www.sportsbuilders.org and use the "Find A Builder/Designer/Supplier" search feature on the righthand side of the page).
Those who are not yet members of ASBA can apply for membership online, using the tab for "Join Us" found on the toolbar at the top of the page.
With more than 300 member companies, ASBA is a national organization for builders, designers and suppliers of materials for tennis courts, running tracks, natural and synthetic turf fields, indoor and outdoor synthetic sports surfaces. It is recognized as a centralized source for technical information, including consumer-oriented information.
