Court Construction & Maintenance Guide: Quality Assurance

The Certified Tennis Court Builder program offered by the ASBA can help ensure your courts and facility are designed, built and maintained to exacting standards.

By Peter Francesconi

The Certified Tennis Court Builder (CTCB) Program was developed by the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) to help raise professional standards and to improve the practice of tennis court construction and maintenance.

To become a CTCB, a court builder must pass a comprehensive exam on tennis court construction and maintenance. He or she must also fulfill prescribed standards of experience and have demonstrated a high level of expertise in tennis court construction.

To maintain their CTCB designation, builders must recertify every three years, so they are constantly in the know on the latest construction and maintenance techniques.

As of early July, there were 61 current CTCBs in North America. We’ve arranged them here by region, but keep in mind, many court builders travel and are not bound by geographical or state lines.

If you are a sports builder, consider becoming a CTCB and providing your customers, and potential customers, with that extra level of knowledge and experience. (In fact, in some instances, bids for jobs may require that a CTCB work on a project.)

Visit the ASBA’s website,, for more information, including applications, resources and CTCB test dates and locations.
