Jim Taylor got his start by building tennis courts in Utah in the 70’s. Realizing that the work could only be seasonal there, he left Utah for Southern California. Here in California, Jim was able to work for George Peables’ company in Santa Monica. Jim secured his California contractor’s license and Taylor Tennis Courts was born. In 1980 Jim’s brother Dave joined the company and they have been partners ever since. Together they have built the company into a multi-faceted game court construction and surfacing company serving all of Southern California with services ranging from court construction and surfacing to fencing, lighting, windscreens, basketball systems and more.
