Our Pickleball Championship Shade Structure
In 2016, we were contracted to cover the court for the US Open Pickleball Championship. During a feasibility study for the championship, the event's architect realized that attracting fans during the hot summer months would be a challenge unless something changed. A covered structure would be ideal, and the architect reached out to USA SHADE with the belief that our company was the most qualified to design it while meeting a tight timeline for the upcoming event.
Starting with an idea sketched on a napkin, we worked with the architect to create a 15,000-square-foot custom structure that shaded the pickleball court and grandstands. We completed the installation in April, just in time for the 2017 US Open. That year's event saw a significant increase in the number of fans who attended.
Today, our fully custom pickleball court canopy provides plenty of shade for the US Open Pickleball Academy and various tournaments throughout the year.
Benefits of Pickleball Court Shade Structures
What is the USA SHADE difference? We're known for unmatched levels of reliability and innovation, crafting solutions that can attract new visitors to your court and encourage them to return. Among the many benefits of adding pickleball court shade structures, you'll find:
1. Improved Comfort
Whether they're playing on the court, waiting on the sidelines or sitting in the bleachers, quality shade structures will keep your guests comfortable and cool. No matter the weather, shade helps visitors enjoy their time outside with a lowered chance of sun glare, dehydration, overheating or sun damage.
2. Protection From Sun Damage
It's not only the athletes and fans that will appreciate the reprieve from harmful UV rays. Protecting your equipment, flooring and seating will extend their shelf life and prevent warping and fading.
3. New Life for Your Court
No matter your pickleball court's age, our shade structures provide a unique opportunity to update your architecture and aesthetics. Our custom design allows you to choose colors, styles and branding that represent your facility and enhances the visual appeal of your space.
4. Extended Pickleball Opportunities Year-Round
From professional pickleball competitions to friendly weekend tournaments, there's always a reason to hit the court. Whether your court hosts serious competitions or recreational hobbyists, incorporating shade structures opens it up for use year-round. Even during the peak of summer, visitors can enjoy playing comfortably outdoors.
Why Choose a Waterproof Pickleball Court Shade Structure?
Our waterproof solutions allow you to take advantage of our stunning, shade-enhancing structures in all kinds of weather. Installing a waterproof structure can make the difference between hosting an event as planned or having to cancel it due to a last-minute storm and the resulting risk of damage to your sound systems and equipment screens.
Along with keeping your equipment safe, a waterproof court shade structure will create a more enjoyable experience for attendees. As they watch and cheer from the stands or spectator area, they'll stay dry and comfortable. You won't have to worry about fans skipping the event due to rainy weather.
