Tent and Team Space Policy for Nathan Benderson Park (NBP).

NBP experienced multiple encounters at past events with tents that were not properly anchored or secured that resulted in safety hazards to the venue and its patrons.  Therefore, in the best interest of safety for the athletes and spectators, SANCA is mandating that any tent larger than two combined 10x10 EZ set up tents must meet specific safety standards regarding fire and wind load. In order to ensure that these requirements are met, larger tents are required to be rented through SANCA and installed by the SANCA approved tent contractor.  This policy is to better enhance the safety of our NBP customers.   Please provide your request 10 days prior to the event to ensure availability.  If your team is larger than 75 athletes and you require a larger space special exceptions can be made in writing to accommodate such request.
