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 “special recognition.”
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.
