Retractable Player Tunnels

A Retractable tunnel is a must-have for football and sports clubs that use modern sports grounds. They offer a safe and convenient way for athletes to enter and exit the playing field while creating a sense of anticipation and excitement for fans. 

With a wide range of sizes, shapes, and customisable options available, our tunnels can be tailored to meet the specific needs of any sports team or facility. In this section, we’ll provide an overview and their benefits.

One of the key benefits of retractable tunnels is their ability to provide safe and efficient player entry and exit from and to the football pitch. At Sports Ground Development Ltd, we offer bespoke solutions to meet the unique needs of sports clubs. These come in a range of sizes from 1 metre to 16 metres when extended with any width between 1.5m & 4.0m, plus heights from 2.3m to 4.5m to fit into any area as required. These all come with pneumatic wheels as standard, for ease of use, and are delivered to your ground ready assembled. Another thing they are great for is unusual covering issues in the sports and industrial sector.

Benefits of our Tunnels

Our tunnels offer several benefits that make them an attractive option for sports facilities. In this section, we’ll discuss some of the key advantages, including their space-saving design, cost-effectiveness, and versatility.

Space-Saving Design

One of the main benefits is their space-saving design. Unlike traditional tunnels, retractable tunnels can be easily retracted when not in use, freeing up valuable space that can be used for other purposes, essentially they are a temporary structure. This is particularly useful for facilities with limited space, where maximising the available area is crucial.


Retractable tunnels are a cost-effective solution for sports facilities. They are typically less expensive than permanent structures and can be easily transported to different venues as needed. This makes them an ideal choice for facilities that host a variety of events. They are built on lightweight aluminium frame which are not as expensive as other metals, and a canopy of PVC fabric.


Retractable tunnels are temporary structures, which means that they can be easily removed and stored when not in use. This makes them a versatile solution for facilities that require temporary structures for specific events or purposes, such as football clubs, rugby clubs and more.
