Mar 29th, 2012

RALEIGH, N.C., March 29, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Escalade Sports recently recognized two dealers of their Woodplay and ChildLife lines for their 2011 Dealer of the Year awards. These awards are given in recognition of outstanding performance in every aspect throughout the year. "This year's recipients went above and beyond, providing excellent customer service to every client and acting as strong ambassadors of the family friendly Woodplay and ChildLife products," said Tom Ellingson, Product Manager at Escalade Sports.

Glenn Nicholas and Steve Milligan of the Dallas, Texas based Beyond Backyards were named the Dealer of the Year for 2011. Their company has a celebrated tradition within the Dallas metro area; some of their customers have even been parents who grew up with Beyond Backyards swing sets in their homes and now want to pass on that same legacy of quality to their children.

In the mid-market range, Jon Simons of Backyard Play World in Omaha, Nebraska and Gunnar and Allison Graven of Steepleton in Kentucky won the top honors. This is Simons' second year of recognition for excellence: his company was named Dealer of the Year in 2010 as well. Steepleton, a Kentucky based company that specializes in recreation, combines unique indoor offerings like billiard tables with outdoor playsets.

Woodplay and ChildLife both have a long history of excellence throughout the United States. Woodplay is an all-Redwood construction, built using sustainably grown renewable Redwood. As the original Redwood swingset, Woodplay has created many innovations within the industry. It continues to set the standard for safety, sustainability, and fun. ChildLife is an economically priced line of high quality play sets. Both Woodplay and ChildLife offer the highest standards of safety, including full compliance with ASTM standards.

About Woodplay & Escalade Sports: Woodplay® Redwood Playsets are manufactured by Woodplay in Raleigh, NC. Woodplay and ChildLife are part of the family of brands of recreational and leisure time activity products for the home owned by Escalade® Sports.
