How can you make your own shade cover for spectators at an event using PVC pipe? Answered

We are having a handball tournament and behind the courts is a basketball court the only place to sit and I wanted to make a background with shade material for the spectators.


PVC pipe often gets used as some kind of construction-kit, but it's not often the best material. Wood is generally quite good for a lot of things. - can you give us some dimensions / plans? L

we were thinking about 6-8 feet long and 6 feet high....thank you

I think wood might be best, for those lengths it's probably going to be cheaper and stiffer. You could just nail it together, and hook fabric across it? L
