In 2015, 12 courts were deemed "worthy of special recognition" by a panel of judges who are considered experts in their field. Only 3 of the 12 recognized were awarded with "Outstanding" honors.
Elite Sports Builders Team is honored to have been named among the ASBA's most outstanding tennis court builds across the United States.
The 10 new post-tensioned concrete tennis courts, in three batteries, at the Bell Recreation Center replace nine courts that were demolished and hauled from the site.

Among the challenges were numerous buried, hidden and unknown obstacles that were discovered during demolition of the more than 30-year-old site, including old, abandoned light footings that had been covered with concrete.
The site was substantially lower than the surrounding facilities and was surrounded by tall block walls, but there was no original drainage around the walls,so a footing drain system was designed and retrofitted into the site.

The project also involved designing new drainage for the courts, including a slot drain in each battery, catch basins in the landscape areas between batteries, and a small retention area — all tying into the new storm-water infrastructure below the courts.
