Tent Shelter with Many Uses

The Sport Brella provides shelter from the sun or the storm! They are very versatile with many uses.

Sports Events

If you have young children participating in sports events like soccer or baseball and you are sitting on the sidelines one of these shelters sure would come in handy.

It is the perfect place to stay out of the sun and keep dry if it rains. It will only add to the enjoyment of watching your kids game and it also gives the little ones a place to run to for shelter if the weather does take a turn for the worse.

Beach Shelter

The Sports brella can do double duty at the beach too. It is much roomier than the traditional beach umbrella and thus provides better coverage from the sun. Beach umbrellas can easily come loose if it's windy and are often not large enough to provide shelter for more than one person. I have struggled many times with beach umbrellas trying to get them to stay put. If it is windy constantly readjusting (or chasing!) your beach umbrella will run the day. I know this from experience.

Camping

Personally, I don't like camping but I can see how the Sports brella could come in useful for camping enthusiasts. When you are all living in a tent or tents in close quarters; its always nice to have another place to escape. A Sports brella provides another room to have some quiet time alone to read or just get away from the crowd.

Bright Colors

These shelters come in a variety of colours red, green, blue. Choose a color you like it but choose one that will stand out so you can find it among all the other umbrellas on the beach or campground.

Easy To Set Up

These small tents are easy to pack in the car and simple to set up. You don't have to worry about the weather anymore as long as you keep your Sport brella in your trunk; it's always there and ready to go.

Sun Protection

They also offer great sun protection. I think these are perfect for the beach since I do enjoy sitting near the water to read but I do not like the sun or sun bathing. Fair skinned people who burn easily will appreciate these shelters as they have this extra protection that people need.

Peace and Quiet

The Sports brella is perfect for those who love to read whether you are on the beach or in the woods; it's little spot to grab some quiet time for a snooze or a read.

Perfect Shelter

UV Protection

Do you know that the Sport-Brella protects you from 99.95 % of harmful UV rays?

Choosing the Color

The shelter comes in a light blue color as well as red, green, orange and white options.

I'm not sure about white as a color choice because it would become dirty quite easily and be somewhat invisible looking on the beach. On the other hand white would stand out in a wooded area.

Red is a good choice for a stand out color especially on the beach. Kids can often get confused when beaches are crowded and not know where their family is in the sea of umbrellas.

I have had this experience, often when you go into the water you don't realize you are drifting away from the original spot you entered the water and when you look up at the beach your "base camp" has disappeared! With this in mind a bright color is a good choice for the beach.

Easy to Transport

Regardless of color they are very easy to transport in an umbrella sleeve; just like regular beach umbrellas. There is a handle on the sleeve that makes them easy to carry around. They are quite lightweight when folded up. Although they look quite large the Sport brella folds up and is very portable.

UV and Wind Protection

Did you know the this shelter provides UV protection? Again, perfect for the beach especially for those readers or non-sun worshippers like myself.

The brella will stand up to windy days too with extra spikes and tethers that are included to keep the shelter in place. Beach umbrellas don't have this extra tie down and I find they are often hard to keep adjusting. You don't want to spend your time on the beach constantly adjusting your umbrella so these shelters just make more sense. Put it up and forget about it.

Ventilation

Do you like the ocean breeze or any breeze for that matter? Well, you can still enjoy that breeze even while sitting within your Sports-brella because there are ventilated flaps on either side which you can adjust to your liking.

Simple and Fast to Set Up

Do you know it only takes 3 seconds to put up a Sports Brella?

Its just like opening a regular umbrella. You don't want to fuss with your shelter when you want to be enjoying your childs' game, the beach or the wonder of nature in the woods. Easy operation is important for these pass times

Shelter Chairs - Here is your own personal shelter from the sun...

Sports Brella makes other types of shelters and seating too. If you are looking for a chair of your own with a built in shelter from the sun and/or rain, look no further than the Sport Brella Chair. You don't have to share this shelter with anyone else and it folds up for easy transport; just toss it in the trunk and it's ready when you are.

These are great for the side lines of your kids sports events too and at the beach with no need to carry a umbrella and chair. It is an all in one chair/umbrella.

Do you think the Sports Brella is Cool?

      I think this is a great product, and I had never heard of them before. I especially like the fact of being able to hook two together for a group. Terrific! Thanks for sharing!

      I have seen some people using these during weekend baseball tournaments. They look easy to carry, put up and take down. We might have to invest in one this Summer. If so, I will come back and buy from your link.

      Yes! They would be great at lots of sports events - I wonder if they would be too spooky for the horses.

      I seen a bunch of these at the kids football practices. It gets so hot out in the sun that these are essential at kids sports games.

      These sports sun shades are very popular in Arizona. All the parents bring them to their kids soccer games, etc.

      @Diva2Mom: Absolutely! I wish these were around when my kids were small.

      These would be great for those new families with infants still trying to get out there and socialize in this HEAT! Sometimes those strollers get too hot, even with shade, so this would allow an escape.

      I wish I had known about these when my kids were playing sports - I see that they're all the rage now at the local soccer field!

      This lens makes me want one, unfortunately I can't afford one, and hardly ever go somewhere where I would need it.
