FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE…October 10, 2013…Harwinton, CT
Putnam Tennis and Recreation LLC, one of the oldest and most experienced tennis court builders in the United States, has reentered the platform tennis construction and maintenance business. Putnam has developed a business relationship with David Dodge and Mark Kebe at Total Platform Tennis in Loveland, Ohio and will serve as the Authorized East Coast Installer of the “Total Platform Tennis System.” The combination of Putnam’s extensive construction capability and long standing reputation in the tennis business with Total Platform Tennis’ manufacturing expertise and installation experience, brings a new level of construction and maintenance ability to the platform tennis industry.
Putnam Tennis Courts was started in 1944 as one of the first full service tennis court contractors in the country and, by the late 1950’s, also began manufacturing and installing platform tennis courts at private clubs and residences throughout New England. By the mid 1960’s, Putnam offered customers three different types of platform tennis courts, the widest range of court technology available at the time. The COMPETITION, TOURNAMENT and CHAMPIONSHIP courts represented state of the art platform tennis courts, incorporating both wood and metal into court design and engineering specifications. In the 1970’s, Putnam expanded its line of platform tennis courts to include asphalt based playing surfaces, the installation of Mateflex inter-locking tile surfaces on existing courts, and continued the development and application of metal super-structures on both raised and “at grade” platform tennis courts. With the development of aluminum deck platform tennis court, Putnam established a working relationship with Tom Rogers at Eastern Mountain Platform Tennis Court Construction and continued to offer customers the best quality platform tennis courts available. In the late 1980’s, the platform tennis business had slowed considerably and Putnam Tennis stopped offering construction and maintenance services to customers.
Putnam Tennis and Recreation, LLC is pleased to be back in the platform tennis business and is proud to be the Authorized East Coast Installer of the Total Platform Tennis System.
