DAVE MEHARG,                                       


Dave developed the Next Court, one court size for multiple racquet and paddle sports that was on display during the Racquet & Paddle Sports Show at the Orlando Convention Center in 2018 and 2019, held in conjunction with the PGA Merchandise Show.   A long-time industry veteran who has held executive positions at major court construction and supplier companies, since 2001 he has operated Putnam Tennis Courts, one of the oldest and most experienced tennis court construction companies in the country.  He is an independent design/construction/maintenance consultant who actually understands tennis from a player’s perspective.  Manufacturers, suppliers, contractors and suppliers don't always bring a player’s perspective to the project. David Meharg does.  Simply put, David is a life-long tennis guy. He grew up in a tennis family, has played consistently since age 6, and over his tennis life has coached tennis and also earned USPTA- PPTA and PTR pro certifications.    Suffice to say, David knows his way around a tennis court – especially what materials and techniques are proven most effective to create quality courts.
