Because “Game On” is Meant to be Cool
Shade Structures & Sports Venues: The Perfect Combo
Whether cheering from university grandstands or competing at local park courts or fields, sports are meant promote healthy socialization and exercise. Still, they often pose dangers beyond their necessary physical demands. Exposure to heat and direct sunlight, even for short periods, can evoke serious health risks and discomfort. With metal bleachers, dark asphalt courts and treeless fields, many sports facilities are not equipped to contain the sun with cooling shade. Fortunately, Apollo’s dynamic and breathable shade structures offer practical solutions for any athletic venue.
Functions of Shade

In smaller venues, our Industry-Standard Bleachers Covers can encompass 3-10 seating rows. These facilitate game viewing by preventing solar glare and overheated seats and rails.
