Cricket isn’t just a summer sport in Australia, it’s a way of life. It’s a passion that unites people across generations and backgrounds. From the local matches played on the neighborhood oval to the grand stadiums hosting international fixtures, cricket runs deep in the veins of the nation. If you haven’t experienced the thrill of test cricket yet, you absolutely should!
However, while cricket brings joy and excitement, it also brings challenges as it is played outdoors. In this blog post, we review the advantages and options for your club providing shade during a cricket match.
While we are focusing on cricket, the same applies for all our summer events. Providing durable marquees and shelters for surf life saving clubs, netball and athletic clubs and for school events, all have similar advantages.
Challenges of outdoor cricket events
While cricket is a beloved tradition, it also comes with challenges, especially as the game is played outdoors. The intense Australian sun, with its harsh UV rays, can be a daunting opponent for both players and spectators. Sunburn, dehydration, and discomfort are common concerns during cricket events. Besides the strong sun, let’s not forget the challenge of the unpredictable Australian weather, where showers can surprise you when you least expect it.
This is where shade solutions, like marquees, come into play. Easyshade’s range of marquees offers clubs a practical and effective way to battle the challenges of outdoor cricket events, providing essential sun protection, shield from the rain, and comfort.
Benefits of marquees for cricket events
As mentioned above, the sun in Australia during the summer can be very strong and unforgiving.. Some days it’s enough after 30 minutes in the sun to get burned since the UV rays are so harsh. The statistics say that 2/3 of Australians get skin cancer because of the sun. A shady area during a cricket game will reduce these concerns.
All of Easyshade’s marquees are made of heavy-duty materials such as PVC, polyester, and canvas, which are all waterproof materials. So when the rain is coming, you can ensure keep spectators and players dry until the shower passes.
- Shade for the teams and spectators
By providing shade during the cricket match, you can prevent a lot of concerns for both the team and your supporters. In local games there is not always rees or cover available, so it is upto the club to organise shade.
Providing a marquee for your players offers them a place to recharge, sit down in the shade between overs and deliver their best performance when it’s game-time, all while being protected from getting sunburned. Officials and scorers can also benefit from the marquee, as it provides essential shade during scorching conditions and enhances their visibility, preventing glare from the sun.
In larger stadiums spectators can get relief from the sun from the stands. However, in smaller ovals, your club will need to provide the cover. Obviously this will decrease their risk of getting overheated and sunburned, enhancing their comfort and enjoyment of the overall experience. No longer will fans have to endure the harsh sun or find makeshift shelters.
Since cricket games can span several hours (or days), providing food options for attendees can enhance their overall experience. Having a marquee for food and drinks not only ensures the safety of the food from birds but also shields it from the sun. It prevents you from overheating while preparing food, which otherwise can be quite hot and dangerous for so many hours.
You can also provide your team and spectators with shade from the sun while eating their food. Offering everyone a comfortable environment and place to sit while eating, will certainly enhance their overall experience.
Marquees for cricket training
During cricket training sessions, having a marquee is a valuable addition. It allows the coach to observe and run the training comfortably in the shade, preventing overheating under the Australian sun. Additionally, it provides a designated space for breaks, allowing players to pause, rehydrate, and discuss the training afterward in the shadows.
