Shelter for Your School’s Sports Day

Shelter for Your School’s Sports Day

Have you ever had to cancel or reschedule sports day due to bad weather or have pupils and spectators complained about being too hot or getting sunburnt during your event? An ideal solution to all these issues is to have a canopy installed on your sports field.

Our free standing systems are ideal for this – particularly our Ennerdale Junior which is a cantilever structure and therefore only has posts on one side, offering an unobstructed view of the event. Benches would fit perfectly underneath to allow spectators to watch your event whilst keeping dry in a seated area.

Alternatively our Grange Mono-Pitch, Welford Dome and Hamilton free standing canopies are also perfect for creating large sheltered and shaded areas for events:

The Grange Mono-Pitch is the ideal canopy for where structures cannot be fixed to a wall for structural reasons. It has a wall mounted appearance due to its mono-pitched roof, yet it is completely free standing. It provides comfortable shelter to those underneath protecting them from the rain as well as the sun with high protection from UV rays.

The Welford Dome creates a great spectator canopy particularly if you provide seating underneath the canopy. It is an attractive domed structure that can be coloured to match your school’s colours; alternatively you can create a striking contrasting effect to make a feature point of your sports canopy.

The Hamilton is our largest canopy; it can be manufactured with a maximum span of 11m and an unlimited length. This makes it the most perfect canopy by far for large events such as sports days. You could use the Hamilton to provide comfortable shelter to spectators or you could hold many events underneath to provide shelter to participants.

If your main priority is to provide protection from the sun rather than the rain, then shade sails are the solution for you. Shade Sails are perfect for summer events and activities as they provide high protection from the sun but are not waterproof. They look fantastic within any environment due to the wide range of colours they are available in including bright and vibrant colours to gentle and tranquil colours.
