Sport and leisure canopies & walkways

Provide the perfect, cost effective year-round sports or leisure experience with inspiring and weather protective canopy solutions.

We work with clients like you in the sports, leisure and visitor attraction sector to design and build inspiring walkways, canopies and buildings. The benefits of these improvements will enable customers to have optimum enjoyment using your facilities throughout the year, regardless of weather conditions. All structures come with a 25-year guarantee.

Attractions

Working with the likes of Wetlands Wildlife Trust (WWT) and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, our solutions have transformed essential aspects of many leisure attractions sites’ customer journey leading to increased revenue, visitor numbers and customer satisfaction.

Take a look at the ZSL Whipsnade Zoo case study as an example of a successful visitor centre and ticketing entrance. If you are considering the provision of a covered queuing area, Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Club did so using a canopy.

See how Drayton Manor increased their outdoor dining space and revenue with the use of a timber barrel vault canopy.

Sports and leisure facilities

Perhaps you are looking to provide all-weather sporting facilities, such as Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), spectator canopies, green gyms, covered football pitches or canopies for tennis courts for your school, college or leisure facility.

Fordingbridge will design and build the perfect covered space for you.

See an example of a MUGA canopy at Kaizen Primary School and a covered children’s play area at holiday park, Whitecliff Bay, on the Isle of Wight.
