ASBA announce publication of new maintenance manual for courts and recreational surfaces

April 13, 2023

The American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), the national organization for builders and suppliers of materials for athletic facilities, announced the publication of its new resource, Courts & Recreational Surfaces: Construction and Maintenance Manual.

The book is the latest in ASBA’s Construction and Maintenance Manual series and promotes quality design, construction, maintenance and repair of track facilities by providing information to facility owners, administrators, coaches, athletic directors, builders, architects, engineers and others in the industry. It is also a resource to parks and recreation officials and those who manage and operate club, league, intramural and recreational sports programs.

“Our members have let us know there is an increasing demand for a wider variety of sports venues, whether those are located in parks, on the campuses of colleges and high schools, in clubs and even in backyards,” said David Clapp, CTB, CTCB, chairman of ASBA. “By creating this publication, we have given these entities, and the industry as a whole, a comprehensive resource to get the information they need without doing a random Internet search that could provide inaccurate information.”

The new publication includes information on an array of facilities for sports, including:

  • Volleyball
  • Para sports
  • Cricket
  • Lacrosse
  • Disc golf, footgolf and more.

The book covers the construction and maintenance of facilities on specific types of surfaces including outdoor hardscapes (asphalt and concrete surfaces), grass/synthetic turf (facilities for sports not presently included in the ASBA’s Sports Fields Manual) and more.

The book also contains 50 new diagrams illustrating not only playing areas but construction and maintenance details. It also includes chapters on accessories, amenities and equipment for various sports, as well as on lighting (indoor and outdoor.) It has extensive contact information on industry resources, as well as listings on each sports diagram of the appropriate governing bodies.
