PHILADELPHIA – The
Clay W. & Lynn B. Hamlin Tennis Center at Penn Park, which opened in September
2011, has received Racquet Sports Industry Magazine’s “Outdoor Tennis
Facility-of-the-Year Award.” The award is voted upon by the American Sports
Builders Association (ASBA), which each year selects 15 tennis facilities for
Three of those facilities were also chosen for “outstanding
honors,” the first of which was the Hamlin Tennis Center. All 15 entries were
submitted by an ASBA member that designed and/or built the facility. In this
case, Hamlin was built and then submitted by the Stantec Sport Group.
In addition to Penn’s 24-acre, 12-court facility, the two
other winners were a residential court in Boca Raton, Fla., and the Roberta
Alison Baumgardner Tennis Facilty at the University of Alabama.
