About the Tennis Division
ASBA represents companies actively engaged in the building or surfacing of tennis courts. The Association also represents designers of such tennis courts and suppliers of related materials.
The Association was founded
in 1965 as the US Tennis Court & Track Builders Association (USTC&TBA) by a group of contractors who recognized the need for an organization that could help them address their mutual problems, set industry standards
and keep them informed on issues pertinent to their business. Its name was changed to American Sports Builders Association in 2004 to reflect the broad range of work performed by its members.
The purpose of this book is to promote the quality construction, maintenance and repair of tennis facilities by providing information to facility owners, managers, tennis professionals, builders, architects and engineers.
This book is designed to explain the various choices and the rationales for those choices. This will allow owners to ask important questions and to make reasoned decisions. Asking questions is not only smart, it is essential. The investment of time and energy in learning about tennis facilities can yield a huge return in terms of a quality facility and in the hours of enjoyment that will be derived from it.
The ASBA and the USTA are committed to providing information to assist facility owners and managers in making informed choices in order to promote the construction of quality tennis facilities.
