The significance of toilet accessibility for your guests at sports events

Running sports event

Any sporting event is an exciting time for everyone involved. When run well, it can create a sense of community, become much talked about and raise a lot of money, but this means that it needs to have all of the right facilities in place.

This doesn’t just mean a fully functioning bar and a burger stand, but also plenty of clean and working toilets. Why is this so important? Read on…

Not missing the match

Whatever sport you are hosting, there are likely to be a lot of people waiting to get to the toilet during a break. It is therefore important to consider how many people might want to use your facilities at the same time and think about whether you have enough of them in place.

Hiring portable toilets can be the perfect solution as they ensure that there are enough toilets to go around, therefore reducing the length of any queues and making it more likely that everyone will get to see the event they have come to watch without worrying about missing anything.

Disabled access

Whilst there are not enough toilets at any event, there are certainly never enough accessible toilets. Those who need to use them may need extra space and extra time, so it is important that there are plenty of them. This helps to make your event more inclusive and can attract a much wider and more diverse audience that it would ordinarily have done.

Some people avoid attending certain events because health conditions mean that they might need to use the toilet more frequently or more urgently than usual. A fear of there not being a toilet accessible when they need one can mean that it is safer to stay away.

Having plenty of toilets on site means there is something for everyone to use. By employing portable toilets, you can also distribute these around your site, ensuring that there is always one close by, avoiding any long treks to the other side of a venue.

Families

Anyone with small children knows how important it can be to have adequate toilet provisions. Whether it is for a toddler who can only give you a minute’s notice that they need to go, or a small baby that needs full changing facilities, providing a range of accessible toilets means that it is possible to perform any nappy change or accompany a small child into the toilet.

Having portable toilets also means that there is plenty of provision for all genders. When this becomes possible then your event becomes much more accommodating to families spanning all age ranges.

Health and safety

Providing the right number of toilets and taking accessibility into consideration isn’t just courtesy, it is also a health and safety requirement. Showing that you have sufficient, accessible, clean toilets on offer for the number of people that you are anticipating shows that you take your health and safety considerations seriously and can stay on the right side of any regulations.

Toilets might not seem like the sort of thing that requires much thought, but to your guests, they can be essential. Having the right facilities on site, and a healthy number of them means that your event can have a much wider appeal.

Whilst many venues are not necessarily set up this way, hiring portable toilets means that you can offer your guests everything that you need without making costly and permanent changes, spending a fortune on renovations or missing out on a valuable opportunity. This means more people through your gates, more support for those competing and a healthier bottom line for the organisers.
