The USTA recognized The Courts at Gabe Nesbitt Community Park as the 2012 Featured Facility Award winner, the organization’s highest honor.
It took place after McKinney opened the $3.7 million tennis complex in February.
The award recognizes one facility from among all those that meet the criteria for an outstanding facility award.
The “featured facility” exemplifies the highest level of excellence in facility design; court construction; court amenities; and other related components such as strong programming and implementation of 10 and Under Tennis.
In addition, The Courts at Gabe Nesbitt Community Park has been recognized as one of seven winners of the USTA’s 31st annual Outstanding Facility Awards Program, recognizing excellence in the construction and/or renovation of tennis facilities throughout the country.
