The Many Different Applications of Tents for Sporting Events

The lightweight-movability and ample square footage of an instant canopy can’t be rivaled by any umbrella out there. Canopies are ideal to put on sports players’ benches to give them a respite from the biting sun in the summer and protect their equipment from getting wet in the rainy months. For fans and coaching staff, canopies are a great way to make sure that you, all of your loved ones and many of the other team supporters don’t get sunburned, have heat stroke, or catch a cold as you cheer your athletes on to victory. If you’re in sports medicine or you are planning/facilitating a sports tournament, then pop-ups are going to be your best friend to provide spacious, covered shelter for any function at your event. Love to tailgate? A canopy makes a great addition to any backyard or parking lot. Bring the gift of shade to your favorite sports team or fanbase so that everyone on your side can focus more on winning the game and less on the uncooperative weather.

What to Look for in Pop Up Tents for Sporting Events

By now, it should be apparent just how versatile tents for sporting events are for every part of game day. Rather than asking yourself if you should invest in a pop-up tent, your next logical question should be: what should I be looking for when purchasing a pop-up canopy tent? Not all pop-up tents are created equal. Some tents are dirt cheap but made with sub-par materials and shoddy craftsmanship. Other tents may offer too many bells and whistles and too high a price to justify their function. So what is the best canopy tent for sporting events? The trick is to find an instant canopy or “pop-up” that hits the mark in terms of both budget and build. Look for the following characteristics in your search for the right pop-up for you and your team.

  • High Quality Materials Built to Last: The Parthenon wouldn’t still be standing if it was built with sandstone and low-grade mortar. Your canopy is not going to stand for all that long if the legs are made of cheap plastic and the fabric sides are made of thin material that rips easily. Look for legs that are made out of thick aluminum that’s both lightweight and strong, joints made of an even stronger metal (since joints are the places on a canopy most likely to break), and a covering made of strong, thick fabric like thick polyester or PVC coated in weather-resistant materials. Fabric is especially important for inflatable tents, which have no frames. These unique, easy-to-set-up tents are another great pop-up option for sporting events of all kinds.
  • Impeccable Craftsmanship: Simply having good materials isn’t enough to ensure that your pop-up canopy tent is going to last. It also has to be put together the right way. Steer clear of the megastore (or online megastore) canopies for sale. Even if a canopy from the megastore appears to be made of quality materials (many of them are not), you’re rolling the dice on whether or not that canopy was constructed properly. Canopies are relatively big products with specialized functionality, and even small oversights in construction can quickly stop them from working. To ensure that you get a well-made canopy tent, go with a company that specializes in building pop-up tents and has been doing so for a long time. In the long run, you’ll be happy that you went with a trusted manufacturer so that your canopy can go up and down on the field for years to come.   
  • A Great Warranty. Words will only go so far in ensuring that your tent lasts for seasons to come. Warranties are concrete. If a pop-up tent company isn’t offering up a guaranteed warranty with their tents for sporting events, there’s probably a reason for that. Warranties are attached to products that last, not ones that will break on you a couple months in. Every company would rather not replace a product. Those that put long warranty coverage on their tents for sporting events are sure that their tents are going to last at least through the warranty period. Those are the pop-up tents for sporting events you should trust.
  • Adaptable Features. Wind whips in, the sun tracks across the sky, you’re putting up your pop-up in a concrete parking lot instead of on a grassy pitch for the first time. These are circumstances your tent needs to be able to handle. The best kind of tents for sporting events are the tents that can adapt to these changing circumstances and more. Slide-in kedar walls are great for combating wind and rain — not to mention they cool down or warm up the inside area of the tent by several degrees in harsh conditions. Having flexible anchoring options for your pop-up tent is also an excellent idea so that you aren’t tied down (literally) to one type of terrain. Make your pop-up adaptable by getting tent stakes, tent weights, and anchoring straps so that you can secure your canopy on whatever sort of ground you encounter.
