Are you thinking about having an event in your garden, but don’t think you have the space? If you have a tennis court then you already have the ideal location!
We specialise in erecting marquees on a tennis court surface, it is a great way to utilise space for up to, and over 250 guests, and the large, flat surface area makes a great base for a marquee to be situated on, you can make use of your garden and entertain guests in an enclosed, warm area. In the winter months it might seem impractical to have a marquee; however we can assure you it is not, read about winter marquees here!
We understand that your tennis court is an expensive, well loved part of your garden that you do not want to be damaged, we take absolute care when the marquee is erected and dismantled, our foremen are experts at what they do. Firstly we will organise a site visit and look for certain features of the tennis court, we’ll determine the best solution for you and have the expertise and experience to provide a solution that will suit your needs without causing any damage to the surface of the court.
The marquee will require a boarded floor and carpet or ring beam flooring system to allow water to run underneath, and not saturate the ground. There are certain aspects of a tennis court that make marquee construction more difficult, such as the netting and poles, however no job is too difficult for us. There are always solutions and our experts will plot out the size of the marquee, taking into consideration all the posts and ensure that there is enough space for the guy ropes to be pinned at accessible points if necessary. The netting can be, in most circumstances, simply temporarily removed.
If you are also looking to hire a portable toilet for your event, a site visit will allow us to see whether there is the correct distance and facilities to locate a toilet, as near or as far away from the site as you would like.
The are many pros to having a marquee on a tennis court;
- Solid, flat surface so that heels don’t sink into the ground
- Utilise space that would otherwise not be used at the event
- No damage
- No muddy or saturated surfaces to deal with, unlike a grass based event
One of our most recent customers who used a marquee said: “Seriously we were very impressed with Inside Outside, with the quality of the marquee supplied and your erection crew. They were very helpful and responded positively and swiftly to our last minute changes. Dismantling was just as efficient with our tennis court left in pristine condition.”
