Consistently recognized as one of the best tennis programs in its conference, one of UT Martin’s key competitive advantages is its large number of diverse tennis facilities, including multiple outdoor courts. The university sought to replace several of its existing asphalt courts that had become unsuitable for play so this reputation could be upheld.
The focus for this project was to replace six failing asphalt courts with new state-of-the-art post tensioned concrete courts. Replacing the courts also provided an opportunity to improve drainage in and around the facility and to upgrade spectator seating as well.
One of the more unique aspects of this project was the requirement that four adjacent courts remain open throughout the duration of construction. This required thoughtful consideration by A2H’s engineers and planners to allow players to practice in a safe environment without slowing down construction.
