The American Sports Builders Association awarded the Springfield College Appleton Tennis Courts Project with the 2014 Outstanding Outdoor Tennis Facility of the Year Award. Gale provided civil and structural engineering services for this design-build tennis reconstruction project. The previously existing bituminous pavement tennis courts were in very poor condition and were experiencing significant cracking, as well as planarity and drainage issues. The lighting was inadequate and the courts were not handicap accessible. Gale worked closely with Cape and Island Tennis & Track and Springfield College to provide a state-of-the-art post tension concrete tennis court facility. The project included eight (8) post tension concrete tennis courts, new lighting, new fencing, drainage improvements, accessible walkways, and aesthetic improvements such as landscape walls and planting areas.
