Shading our sports courts for sun safety is a growing trend. We just want to keep our kids safe from the harsh summer sun.
Some of us grew up playing our team sports on dirt courts, or maybe you had the unfortunate pleasure like me to fall over on the gravel netball courts and skin both your hands and knees.
We all grew up running and playing on open grassy fields with the sun beating down on us with not a care in the world.
How things have changed, the grassy fields are all still there and our kids are still running and playing on them. However, we are much more sun smart and safety conscious these days.
Some sports courts are covered with shade sails or shelters and most playgrounds add soft fall safety surfaces. We install covered grandstands and outdoor seating for parents and friends, so they can watch in comfort and be protected from the elements.
These days most of the sports courts are now smooth cement, still, a bit of a killer when you fall over but kids bounce don’t they? Shelters are now constructed over our kid’s sports courts to protect them from the harsh Australian sun.
If your sports club or school needs some shade over your existing courts and fields or you’re wanting to rip up that old gravel netball court and install a new cement one contact us today.
