Need Court or Field Diagrams? They’re as Close as Your Phone

April 3, 2018

The hunt for correct diagrams and dimensions just got easier. Instead of toting books or surfing the Internet, the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) is now offering a new app, containing all that information.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not – and it gets even better. The app, available for both iPhone and Android devices, is free.

The new app, formally known as the ASBA Diagram Showcase, is live on the App Store. It contains updated diagrams for the following facilities:

  • Tennis Courts
  • Running Tracks
  • Sports Fields
  • Pickleball Courts
  • Courts & Recreational Venues (sports include basketball, volleyball, badminton, fencing and more)

The diagrams illustrate not only the facilities themselves (an example might be an NCAA-regulation men’s lacrosse field) but necessary technical details to those maintaining, building and repairing such facilities, such as a cross-section of a synthetic turf anchoring system.

The new app represents a tremendous advance in the industry, and will allow those in the field, or even working from the office, to access the information they need quickly and easily, and to save it for future use. ASBA will update the information in the app to remain current with any rule changes.

“ASBA is really excited that we can offer the Diagram Showcase app,” said Kristoff Eldridge, CTB, ASBA’s chairman. “We see it not only as a way for builders, design professionals, managers and others in the industry to access information easily, but as a way to promote quality design and construction of athletic facilities worldwide. The fact that the app is free means it is even easier to put this information into the hands of anyone who needs it, and it makes it possible for everyone to have the most updated diagrams available.”

The ASBA Diagram Showcase can be accessed on the App Store by keying ASBA into the search box.

The use of the app is part of the Association’s continuing efforts to allow industry members access to the most current and correct information. Ultimately, it furthers the Association’s mantra of “Build it Right” when it comes to sports venues.

“The Internet, as we all know, is a great resource,” says Eldridge. “But the information you’re getting is only as good as the source. This app – which comes direct from the source – ASBA as well as governing bodies – ensures that venue owners, designers, contractors and suppliers – as well as plenty of others – will always have access to the most current information. ASBA’s decision to offer it free of charge is a testament to our commitment to excellence in the industry.”
