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.

Spring sports season KentuckyThe start of April marks the beginning of the end of the school year. With about two months left for most schools in our area and spring break in full force, most students and faculty can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

The beginning of spring also means the beginning of a lot of other activities in Kentucky and Indiana like:

  • Baseball season starting up
  • The end of March Madness with The Kentucky Wildcats winning their Eighth National Title!
  • The Masters kicking off
  • Keeneland Spring Meet opening
  • The Kentucky Derby Festivities are getting underway

Because school isn’t far from closing for the summer, this is a great time to start thinking about preventative maintenance for your equipment and bleachers. It’s also a great time to re-stock on new equipment for your sports facilities.

Right now, Toadvine Enterprises has openings for summer maintenance programs for bleachers and gymnasium equipment. Call us at (502) 241-6010 or fill out our maintenance form on our website to get started.
