Sport Court Design Guide

WAPA is pleased to announce our new 2022 Sport Court Design Guide.

Consumer demand for outdoor sport court installations — such as basketball, tennis, pickleball courts, etc. — continues to rise. But while the playing surface of these courts may appear different, below the surface they’re generally constructed the same way using hot mix asphalt (HMA). We have developed this guide to help owners, contractors, design professionals, and suppliers in the design and installation of HMA for athletic purposes.

The chapters in the guide are:

  1. Introduction
  2. Supply and Workforce
  3. Court Design
  4. Materials and Hot Mix Asphalt Mixture Designs
  5. Site Grading/Subgrade Preparation
  6. Construction
  7. Repair, Reconstruction and Renovation
  8. Cleaning and Care Instructions
  9. Steps to Ensure a Successful Project
  10. References and Links

Please feel free to share this information with your colleagues and customers.
