Broadway Tennis Center

Burlingame, California

A new indoor tennis facility is planned for a site that is now an existing empty parking lot next to the 101 freeway. Housing 6 courts, a pro shop, a small café and ping pong tables, it is intended to be a kid-friendly facility open to the public for lessons, clinics and parties, hosting tournaments, and a practice location for local university tennis teams.

 

The courts are housed in a pre-fabricated structure that is daylit from above, and the café, viewing areas, locker rooms, offices and pro shop wrap around 2 edges in a stick built structure that provides a friendly façade and great views of the courts. Using bioswales to treat storm runoff and a new trail next to the existing creek, this project brings some additional greenery to a neglected site.
