Owned & Operated as a Family
All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty. "
That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe."
We work hard with our hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it."
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters."
We are a Christian based company that specializes in hard court maintenance & resurfacing. Established in 1995, Ray Desilets began the Advantage Tennis journey of a unique tennis court construction company unlike it’s competitors. Beginning his career in the industry in 1974, Ray excelled at developing new and efficient ways of doing things. This efficient way of thinking hasn’t slowed in over 47 years. The future of Advantage Tennis is in it’s innovative thinking, customers and employees.
Innovative thinking has lead to Advantage Tennis becoming an reputable name in the industry by: bringing SportMaster coatings to New England, helping with the innovation of the ColorPlus system and the SportMaster Bulk System (making Advantage Tennis the very first customer), state-of-the-art mixers and pumps (making Advantage Tennis the only company in the nation to own and operate 3 of these specialized systems) and several industry wide developments in coating and maintenance techniques.
Among it’s many accomplishments in the industry, Advantage Tennis has prided itself on making its operations indiscriminate towards gender. Because of the companies focus on efficiency and quality, both men and women are able to be employed, allowing constant improvements to business from different strategic ways of thinking.
Nicquelle Timson, daughter of Ray, has now become a leading voice in the company. Starting her career painting lines for fun as a child, led to becoming an official employee in 2002. Being the bosses daughter did not stop her from starting at the bottom and learning the company inside out. Leaving the customers to her father, Nicquelle has become the voice of the employees as the companies project manager. Working side-by-side with all of the companies employees allows for better communication, better understanding of the labor and a constant means for improvements.
Now, Shawn Timson, Nicquelle's husband had taken over the sales at Advantage. With experience running his own companies and being a lead organizer for many local charitable groups, Shawn fits into the family as Ray tries to slowly retire. We know Ray has tennis courts in his blood so we continue to count on him for consulting on a daily basis.
Good thing he lives next door!
This constant means of improvement, becomes a determining factor for customers in choosing Advantage Tennis. Unlike it’s competitors, Advantage Tennis, uses honesty and quality as it’s selling pitch. The company is not in the business to make money, but to make an honest living. With these values, Advantage Tennis hopes to be in the business for several years to come.
