The best example would be here in Melbourne. The world-famous Australian Open, a tennis tournament that takes place annually, usually over the last fortnight of January at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Australia.

If you have ever found yourself in Richmond before, during, or after the event, you may have noticed temporary blue fencing surrounding Melbourne Park. When the Australian Open site is being built during the initial phase, these blue fences act as barricaded to keep people away. During the event, these fences allow the organisers to let people in with tickets only. 

Once you enter the AO site, you can find various fencing types that are used for crowd control. On game days, fences are used to keep the paths clear, or traffic moving in the desired direction. Also, fences are used to barricade tennis courts and the players’ areas for security reasons.
