Eagle Play Structures

Eagle Play Structures manufactures and installs commercial playground equipment in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. As a division of Sport Systems, LLC, the company is located in Ijamsville, Maryland.

Sport Systems, LLC was founded in Maryland in 1983 by Tilford C. Jones. A former tennis pro, Jones started the company as a tennis court construction company. As the company grew it began to sell playground equipment made by another company. When sales volumes exploded, Sport Systems began a manufacturing division to compliment its contracting business. Sport Systems presently manufactures the Eagle Play Structures’ line of commercial playground equipment as well as 100% acrylic sports surfaces for tennis and basketball courts under the trade names Sport Coat and Sport Turf, and Rally Master Backboards for tennis and sports training.1

Eagle Play Structures’ Titan line of play equipment utilizes recycled aluminum support posts and massive 48” X 48” play decks. The Novus Play System line is a free-play concept that has ropes combined with unusual climbing devices. Eagle Play Structures also offers a wide variety of independent play features including climbing walls, spinners, fitness courses, obstacle courses as well as dog parks, site furnishings, and shade shelters.

All Eagle Play Structures’ designers and sales personnel are Certified Playground Safety Inspectors (CPSI) as certified through the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). As International Play Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA) members, Eagle Play Structures complies with ASTM International F1487-07 specifications and participates in IPEMA's structural integrity testing program.2

In 2009, Eagle Play Structures donated a playground to the Saint Thomas More Catholic School in Northeast Washington D.C. and a playground addition to the River Road Unitarian, Universalist Congregation in Bethesda, Maryland.
