The tension fabric structure in Rübenberge was built in 2001. The outdoor sports pavilion for the Cooperative Comprehensive School in Neustadt am Rübenberge was co-financed by the Land Lower-Saxony as a pilot project.

Since then, the attractive tension fabric structure with its roof made it possible for the students to exercise outside and not to depend on the weather conditions.

The roof of the tension fabric structure covers a total asphalt surface of 930 sq.m. This surface is divided into a multifunctional field with the dimensions of 18 x 30 meters (basketball, streetball, soccer, inline-hockey etc.) and a skating range including a half pipe. Unlike a conventional gymnasium, the outdoor sports pavilion can also be used for open-air events, concerts, school celebrations or even as an ice rink in the winter. The tension fabric structure does not only provide attractive options for physical education, but also represents a much appreciated expansion of the recreation hall.

Tension fabric structures by Ceno are used to cover large open air sports areas to extend the use to almost all weather conditions
