Sports Ground Canopies & Sheltered Seating

Our range of structures for sports grounds includes spectator stands, canopies, walkways, and dugouts.

Providing the appropriate shelter for a sports ground can have a significant and positive effect on the experience of people who attend the events. Having the right canopy or shelter for a spectator stands ensures that viewers are able to enjoy the event, kept dry when it is raining or in the shade on hot days.

Covered walkways and hospitality areas will also allow visitors to be sheltered when walking across the premises or waiting to use facilities, such as refreshments or the toilets. A structure can also ensure that sports participants have somewhere sheltered from the elements to rest between plays and during breaks.

A structure for a sports ground will also add a distinct style and can add colour and interesting elements of design. Customers can choose from a metal canopy, a polycarbonate structure or one of our glass canopies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are your canopies usable all year in all weathers?

Yes unlike some solutions that need to be taken down in the winter or during high winds our canopies are designed to be useable all year round. The cladding materials as well as providing shade are also waterproof so that they can be used during wet weather.

Can we view existing canopies, so that we know what we are buying?

If you are considering purchasing a canopy from any company, it is in fact strongly recommended that you visit an existing installation to see exactly what you are paying for. At Clovis Canopies we are proud of our work and are happy to arrange (with the clients consent) for you to view examples of our work and structures.

Do you fix your canopies directly onto tarmac?

No, all canopies are fixed on to concrete pads or bases as the structures can lift out from the ground if not fixed into a suitable concrete base due to the uplift created by wind acting on the roof area.

Do you use Polycarbonate, PETG, GRP or Acrylic for non fabric cladding?

At Clovis Canopies we use polycarbonate roofing as although slightly more expensive, we find it has a better combination of strength, impact resistance, sheet size and colour, fire / flame resistance and longevity of life than any of the other above mentioned cheaper materials.
