Elm Street was resurfaced and resealed in the fall of 2013. Pads that wrap around the basket poles were also replaced.
The courts were totally reconstructed from scratch in 2006 with a blacktop first and then multiple coats of synthetic sealant (made from recycled tires). The useful life of that sealant is 5-7 years so it was time to have it redone. A-B Travel Basketball was pleased to work with A-B Schools to fund this project both originally in 2006 and again in 2013. We are grateful for Lisa O’Brien and Hal Rosenstock’s continued involvement as community liaisons to the town and school district on this property.
NOTE: We are aware of the crack in the court closest to Elm Street. Unfortunately it’s a crack in the hot top (the pavement under the court that you can’t see) and it was not detected before we renovated the courts last fall with new sealant. A paving company has been in to look at it and the hope is it is repaired before the winter before frost heaves make it worse.
