Long time Franklin residents David Hedge and Jimmy Weekley have found an interesting niche in the world of sports – they have become experts in athletic equipment and surfacing installation.

Their longstanding passion for sports and their combined 15 years in athletic sales has led to the creation of a national athletic facility surfacing and equipment company called Play On Courts, a division of Recreational Solutions Group.

Both played basketball in high school in the area, Weekley at Franklin High, and Hedge at BGA. Play On Courts is a full-service athletic flooring and equipment installation company that works closely with facility owners and architects to help plan, design and install athletic surfacing and equipment solutions for their specific needs. From basketball courts to synthetic turf fields, Play On Courts can tackle multiple athletic surfaces that are commonly used in athletic facilities.

“We saw a huge opportunity in the current athletic sales market, as most facility owners and operators have to go through multiple points of contact to buy the proper athletic flooring and equipment for a new project,” said Hedge. “This process can be very frustrating and time consuming. It usually involves looking through product catalogs from various manufacturers, purchasing surfacing materials and equipment, and then trying to find contractors who have the necessary installation experience.”
“Our approach is different,” said Weekley. “We work one-on-one alongside facility owners and operators to understand the overall vision for their project and recommend products based on their activity needs and budget requirements.”

Hedge said that the Play On Courts team is involved in every step of the installation process, from the initial planning to the completed job. They provide a dedicated account manager for each project to not only ensurethat the entire process goes smoothly and but also to maintain accountability.

“We want to make the entire installation process as painless as possible,” said Hedge. “After the installation has been completed, we make sure everything has been installed correctly and the equipment in working order. After we pack up, your facility will be ready for competition.”
