Ways to cover a pickleball court

There are many ways to cover a pickleball court. We manufacture prefabricated covers, but here are some of your alternatives:

  1. Tarpaulins: An inexpensive idea that you can put up and take down whenever you want, but not very functional against bad weather.
  2. Fixed roof: These are permanent structures with metal roofs. They are installed on top of the rink and cannot be moved. Ideal for more stable climates or when you want a more permanent roofing solution.
  3. Prefabricated roof: These are aluminium structures with a stretched canvas roof. They are anchored on top of the runway, without central pillars, and provide temporary or permanent protection. Ideal for all types of weather.
  4. Prefabricated retractable roof: These are roofs that can be slid to cover the track and can be retracted to leave it in the open air.
