    Basically, run your sample through a band-pass filter (or a high-pass and a low-pass).

    Narrow slowly the allowed band, by raising the low threshold and lowering the high one, until you lose a little quality. If you narrowed it a lot, you'd reach the old boxing announcement style (Check Timbre's sounds for many Tannoy versions of announcements) but you won't need to go that far as the current pa systems have a higher quality.

    Finally, add a good reverb, with noticeable feedback but not overwhelming, and a mid/long time.

    In qubodup's good examples you can hear different reverb settings at work, as you see it's quite easy to recreate the feeling of any space you want.

    Might I elaborate on copyc4t's suggestion...

    It would also be useful to add a subtle delay or (echo), with a delay time of say 50-100ms and a very short feedback time, this simulates the acoustics from the hard flat surfaces in an open air court.

    If you have an advanced reverb system like Wizoo or Altiverb, you can easily find an IR from a similar space that will give you a perfect simulation.

    If not, then it will suffice to use simple delay and reverb plug-ins.

    Hope this helps

    ...and to whet your appetite some more (since this is a field where curiosity pays back well instead of killing the cat - whew!)

    Here's a list of free convolution reverbs in VST format,

    And here's a list of free impulse responses.
