How SportaFence was created: The company owner and president, Dan Gentry, is a former public sector employee with 26 years of experience in city management, parks and recreation. As such, Dan truly understands the importance of community, as well as, the reality of limited financial resources.
Dan worked for over six years with the City of Woodland, California. Through teamwork, the city planned, designed, financed, and implemented an award winning, environmentally sensitive, state-of-art sports park facility. The first phase of the facility included four lighted synthetic turf combination softball/soccer fields, and a dedicated lighted synthetic soccer field. Once operational, the city began shopping for a durable fence that could quickly and easily be setup for varying sport events.
A broad search was conducted for a fence that could be used on a synthetic turf field, as well as, a product that could serve other purposes. Not finding anything available, Dan turned to S&S Fence Company, a well-known, reputable local fence contractor who has been doing business in the greater Sacramento, California area for over 20 years. Working with the specifications Dan created, SportaFence was born. The fence debuted at the City of Woodland Community Sports Complex, and has received numerous accolades from users, clients, and the sporting industry.
SportaFence provides safety enhancing, quality, and durable portable fencing solutions which are cost-effective. While originally designed to maximize the use of synthetic sports fields, this product can be used on traditional fields, and for other activities.
