Arena Group in full swing at Ricoh Women’s British Open

Arena Group has continued its longstanding relationship with the Ricoh Women’s British Open by providing temporary event structures for the golf championship.

A total of 5,000sqm of temporary structures was installed, including a 1,000sqm Arcus roof facility for the Ricoh Pavilion and Champions Club, welcoming both VIP guests and players to enjoy hospitality facilities alongside the course.

The structure contained the Ishga Spa, two hospitality dining areas, and the Ricoh Innovation Centre, all of which were complete with toilets, catering kitchens, internal fit out and corridor awnings.

Over 4,000sqm of additional temporary structures were installed across the course, including players’ lounge, entrance tents, practice range service tent, a media centre, Links Club hospitality, on course catering structures and a volunteer tent.

A wellness centre and yoga tent was a facility unique to the Women’s Open compared to other golfing events throughout the season.

Arena Structures installed multiple temporary buildings through the Spectators’ Village, including a 1,125sqm merchandise store, also home to the Ricoh Experience offering guests the opportunity to try out their latest products.

Golf fans could keep their eye on the competitions’ developments thanks to a central large screen, which was visible from multiple temporary bars and coffee shops at the Championship, which this year took place at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club, 28-31st July.

Arena Structures, Project Manager, Matt Clark, said:

We have years experience of working with the Ricoh Women’s British Open and collaborate very closely with organisers IMG to deliver their vision for each year. It was a privilege to deliver this installation as my first Arena Structures project and I look forward to building upon its success in years to come. Arena Seating were also on hand to install 1,000 clearview™ tiered seats across the course at the 1st, 12th and 18th holes.

This year saw 20-year-old Ariya Jutanugarn from Bangkok clinch the title, securing her place in the record books as the first Thai player ever to win a Major Championship.
