In this blog post, we will be covering:

These topics will be explored in detail, highlighting the benefits and real-world examples of using Allsite TFS in sports facilities.

Durability in Extreme Environments:

Sports facilities located in extreme climates require structures that can withstand the elements without compromising performance. The Whistler Racket Club, situated in Whistler, BC, is a remarkable example of an Allsite TFS that has stood the test of time. Built in 1995, this three-court facility has demonstrated the quality and longevity of our structure in a mountain environment. Despite heavy snowfall and high winds, the Whistler Racket Club continues to thrive in its 28th year, showcasing the durability and resilience of Allsite TFS structures.

Efficiency and Adaptability:

One of the key advantages of Tension Fabric Structures in sports facilities is their unparalleled efficiency and adaptability. These structures can be customized and reconfigured to accommodate a wide range of sports, allowing seamless transitions between different activities. The Nick Bollettieri Academy in Bradenton, FL, serves as a prime example of this versatility. This renowned tennis academy purchased a 36m x 60m Allsite TFS structure in the 1990s. Over the years, the structure has transformed from a four-court tennis configuration to a multi-purpose gym, demonstrating the adaptability of Allsite’s TFS. Remarkably, the Allsite TFS structure has maintained its value and can be resold today at a higher price than its original purchase, making it a wise investment for the Bollettieri Academy.

Cost-effectiveness and Financial Flexibility:

Tension Fabric Structures offer an excellent solution for sports organizations dealing with limited budgets for facility development. An illustrative example of this can be seen in the Langley Tennis Center located in Langley, BC. In 2011, the center faced capital constraints and lacked the funds to purchase a facility outright. To address this challenge, we devised a long-term lease option that included the opportunity to buy the building at the end of the contract. As a result, the center decided to lease a four-court 36m × 65m Allsite TFS tennis structure. This arrangement efficiently and economically met their space requirements, enabling them to offer high-quality year-round tennis programming to benefit the community and entrepreneurs. By avoiding significant capital investments and having the ability to plan for the future, the center achieved financial flexibility while maintaining cost-effectiveness. 

Long-term Value and Versatility:

The Virginia Academy in Ashburn, VA, represents a shining example of Tension Fabric Structure versatility and long-term value. When the academy needed a semi-permanent gym solution that would allow them to retain capital for other expansion requirements, they made the strategic decision to purchase a 36m x 40m Allsite TFS structure. This investment not only efficiently and economically fulfilled their recreational space requirements but also provided them with a versatile facility. Today, the academy’s VISAA Division II team, known as the Virginia Academy Patriots, excels in their top-of-the-line Allsite TFS facility, enabling them to train and compete at the highest level while maximizing their long-term value and flexibility.

The use of Tension Fabric Structures in sports facilities has revolutionized the industry , offering an ideal combination of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. These structures provide adaptability, durability, and financial flexibility to meet the evolving needs of sports organizations. Langley Tennis Center, Whistler Racket Club, Virginia Academy, and the Bollettieri Academy are just a few examples of the success and benefits of using a TFS for your sports application. By embracing Allsite TFS, sports facilities can elevate their operations, create optimal environments for athletes, and achieve long-term value for their investments. 

Allsite’s Tension Fabric Structures also offer a remarkable combination of efficiency and low maintenance.
