Having a shade tent on the sideline is a huge benefit in weather of all kinds. Getting out of the sun in the hot summer or staying dry (and keeping your gear dry!) in wetter weather is a vital part of a good tournament experience. While some top end tournaments offer teams shade tents on every sideline, having your own for smaller tournaments or even for practice is a great option.
Right now, you can get a high quality Abba 10′ x 10′ portable pop-up canopy shade tent for just $119.99. This is the lowest price ever offered by Amazon and beats other stores’ prices by $30-40. Many shade tents are cheaply made — this has superior build quality while not sacrificing its portability. The Abba tent gets an average of 4.3 out of 5 stars on 49 Amazon reviews.
If you have a bit of a tighter budget, you can actually get a very solid shade tent from AmazonBasics for just $89.99. It’s not quite as well built as the Abba, but it’s almost impossible to beat that price for a 10′ x 10′ tent that’s not going to disintegrate in the wind. The Amazon tent get an average of 4.4 out of 5 stars on 47 Amazon reviews.
Orders of $49+ get free shipping on Amazon. You can get free two-day shipping on all orders (and tons of other benefits!) as an Amazon Prime member.
