Outdoor Wedding - Tent the tennis court?

Hi All,

My fiance and I are having our wedding at a home and I'm not sure about tenting the tennis court for our reception. The homeowners are ok with it, but it is a clay court.

We would be saving 1000's if we don't have to get the event decking that usually goes on the grass to make the hard floor. I would still lay indoor/outdoor carpeting on the surface of the court, and have a dance floor put down, just not sure if people walking in heels and sitting in chairs will make depressions in the clay.

Has anyone held a reception on a clay court before???

 A far as I know a clay court is pretty soft so heels would damage it.

Have you looked into alternative flooring? My neighbour bought deck tiles from Ikea for a party in their yard and then sold them after the event. Just an idea xx

 Canooknic - Yes! Actually I just saw something on one of the boards like that. Our tent will measure 40 x 100 so I just have to check out pricing. For the event deck it would be around $3200 so if I can get an alternative that will protect the floor for around $1000 I'll be happy!

Thanks for the idea!
