However, here comes the issue. When sports stadium or facilities are under refurbishments, the need for a versatile and reliable solution arises. This is where sports tents, with their adaptability and feature for temporary use, play the crucial role. Let’s explore the concept of sports tents and how they are revolutionizing the world of temporary sports facilities.

What Are Sports Tents

Sports tents, as well as known as temporary sports facilities or sports marquees, are sturdy and customizable structures which designed to provide a temporary space for various indoor sports activities. These tents are constructed with durable materials, like galvanized steel and/ or aluminum alloy. For example, at Shelter Structures, we design these tents with unique materials, as the consideration for its versatility. Our frames are manufactured with aluminum alloy, integrating with weather-resistant fabric roofs and various side wall packages can be applied.

Sports tents can be customized in order to accommodate various sports activities, including basketball, volleyball, tennis, badminton, skating and more. The interior layout can be tailor-made to meet the specific requirements of each sport. For example, ice skating does not require high roof, so the design can be with flat roofing; Ice skating needs adequate space around the main court, so the span needs to be big in order to fulfill this requirements.

Weather Protection

Weather protection is uniquely important for indoor sports. The weather-resistant fabric roof of this tents can protect athletes and people inside from the external weather conditions. Many sports also need a stable internal environment to carry on, such as badminton, swimming etc. No matter it is heavy winds or big snow, ensuring that games and training become the main purpose.

Compared to constructing a new sports facility or renting alternative indoor spaces, this tents represent the new way of thinking and become the more cost-effective solution. Their existence make sports businesses away from long-term investments, in the meantime, they provide a fully functional space for sports activities.
