OSports was responsible for the overall facility master plan in combination with a phased design approach for construction of the Buchtel Field Tennis Facility (NCAA D1) at the University of Akron. The overall master plan included six new tennis courts with elevated bleacher seating for 200 spectators, covered scorer’s table, restroom and storage buildings, new scoreboard, facility parking, dedicated large event spaces, and other various site improvements.
OSports led phase 1 of the design in partnership with Edge Landscape Architecture & Urban Design. This phase, which is currently completing construction, included the six new tennis courts, site infrastructure and numerous other site improvements. The new tennis court complex was designed and specified to accommodate all the needs and desires of the University, coaches, and players. The court surface features a medium-fast court speed with U.S. Open colors and includes custom stenciled University logos on the courts.
