ELITE TRAINING FACILITIES
United States Tennis Association Flushing, NY, USA
We work closely with organizations, administrators, coaches, trainers, and student athletes throughout the design process. Developing a keen understanding of the very specific needs of all user groups of a facility is critical to help achieve the highest levels of success on and off the playing field. From the individual training fields and courts to sports medicine and academic facilities, each project is uniquely tailored to the specific needs of the client and each provides an ideal environment for coaches, administrators, trainers, and athletes to work, train, and rehabilitate year-round in what is oftentimes a home away from home.
Our training facilities are designed to provide a holistic integration of the latest state-of-the-art training accommodationsâ€”and the flexibility to incorporate and adapt to future best practices and technology. We work closely with our clients to incorporate additional overlay uses that provide for known and unknown year-round uses, including public events, hospitality, and a range of community and sponsorship opportunities.
