Toadvine EnterprisesFISHERVILLE, KY - Toadvine Enterprises, a family owned sports equipment and stadium seating distributor, has hired sales and sporting goods professional David Hedge to manage its clients in the state of Tennessee.

Hedge holds a Master Degree in Sport Management from the University of Tennessee and was hired to manage sales and service of gymnasium equipment and seating needs in the state. He works with schools of all sizes, from elementary up to the collegiate level.

Hedge takes his responsibilities seriously, stating, "I represent Toadvine Enterprises in Tennessee and I work directly with owners and contractors on a daily basis. My end goal is to provide options and answers for all of their gymnasium needs, no matter what budget they have."

Having been in the gymnasium services industry for 10 years, Hedge understands the industry well. That, coupled with Toadvine's reputation in the business, meant an opportunity Hedge couldn't pass up. "When the opportunity came open to work for a business that focuses on customer service and quality products from top notch manufacturers, I was immediately drawn to partnering with Toadvine," he said. 

Toadvine's excellence in the industry as well as the level of service it provides to customers translates into a reputable company for which to work. "Toadvine is unique because it is a small company, yet it is so focused on customer service and quality work," Hedge explains. "Plus, it represents Porter Athletic and Interkal Seating, two of the best manufacturers in the gymnasium equipment and bleacher industries."
When Hedge isn't representing Toadvine, you can find him traveling, cycling, or attending sporting events of all varieties and levels. To get in touch with David Hedge regarding a seating or sports equipment need in Tennessee, email him at

NBA Finals, the U.S. Open, and Bird Noises

Kentucky athletic equipmentAt Toadvine Enterprises we take our sports seriously. If you have been following the NBA finals it has been a treat. The Miami Heat are leading the Thunder 2-1 in the seven game series. Game three had some awesome highlights and predictable stats. It was not surprising that Wade and James combined for 54 of the 91 points the Heat posted in their 91-85 victory. Shane Battier added several three buckets for a ridiculous percentage; 4 of 6 in Game 1, 5 of 7 in Game 2, 2 for 2 in Game 3. That’s 11 of 15, 73.3 percent. With Miami leading 2-1 we want to hear from you. Can the OKC Thunder pull three wins out of the next four games? What will the result of this year’s NBA Finals be?

In golf news, we want to congratulate Webb Simpson on his U.S. Open victory yesterday in San Francisco. Webb sat in the club house at +1 after his four rounds. He had to sit with his wife and watch Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk finish the 17th and 18th hole to see if his score would hold up or if there would be a playoff. Furyk fell apart on the last three holes and gave himself little chance to force a playoff. McDowell, however, left himself a 25 putt for a birdie that would force a playoff. It was not to be. McDowell misread the hole and the ball drifted well left of the hole. McDowell two-putted to secure solo second. Webb claimed his first major win in his second major appearance and received $1.44 million for his efforts. The last nine majors have been claimed by an unprecedented, nine first time major winners so what will happen with the remaining major tournaments this year. Will the next major see a veteran or first timer hoisting the trophy? Let us know your predictions.

There is always a heckler. This year’s U.S. Open Trophy ceremony had a man in a bizarre costume appear in front of the camera while Bob Costas was interviewing Webb Simpson. The man calls himself Jungle Bird and says he is an activist raising awareness of deforestation. He walked in front of the camera and began making bird sounds. This is not the first time he has done this. Apparently he has met the Queen of England and did something similar. He pointed out no charges were pressed that time.

It's March and That Means March Madness Baby

Kentucky athletic equipmentIt’s March. The sun is shining…well most of the time, and high school and college basketball is kicking into full gear.

Kentucky high school basketball is finishing up regionals and getting ready for the State Tournament. You can follow along with your favorite boys’ teams here and girls’ teams here.

The Cats are ranked # 1 and cruising toward a number 1 NCAA seed. They wrapped up the SEC regular season title and now focus their efforts on winning two titles in New Orleans. The SEC Tournament title and the Big Dance. There is a very good chance the Cats will be playing first round games in the YUM Center. Did we mention that Toadvine Enterprises had the honor of providing much of the athletic equipment used at the Yum Center?

The Cards are ranked in the top 20 and have stayed right in the middle of the pack in the Big East. Aside from a recent loss to a gritty South Florida squad, the Cards have played some very steady ball. They could be a very dangerous team come the NCAA tourney.

The Murray State Racers are hanging just outside the top 10 with one lone loss. They were a tough draw last year, and they could surpass that run this year.

Across the river, (now that we can cross it again) the Indiana Hoosiers are making a strong late season bid with a recent win over Big Ten leader Michigan State. They have some great wins on the resume (we don’t have to remind you of one the biggest one). With a strong Big Ten tourney, they could end up with a nice seed come tournament Sunday. You can follow Big Ten Tournament results here.

So let’s start some trash talking.

  • Who’s cutting down the nets in April?
  • How will UK, UofL, Murray State, and Indiana finish in their conference tournaments? How will they fare in the NCAA?
  • Who will win the Kentucky High School Boys Basketball Championship?
  • Indiana? Tennessee? Ohio?

It’s not March without basketball opinions. Hit us on Facebook, leave a comment below on this blog post, or reply to us on Twitter.

P.S. If you find any time to work in March, we’re still working and we’d love to quote you some athletic equipment, meet you about a custom seating project, or just answer some of your general questions about what we do.
