Cheap outdoor structure to hang rings on

Hey guys I'm really just looking for some ideas for a structure to hang rings on outside. Ideally a temporary structure.

Many thanks

Thanks but I want to hand them in my garden and don't have a suitable tree!

Plant one then! I suggest oak.

Although that's probably not the kind of timeline you were thinking of.

I did this with a couple 6x6's and 4x4's. 15' to the top and hang a rope climb too. Great for outdoor wods!

I barely have any $ into it as I had some extra lumber laying around. If you were to buy everything new, less than $100 for the structure itself.

Would there be a cheaper way to do this indoors?

That is awesome... the HOA wouldn't let us get away with that.
