How to choose your tennis net

Relax, all our nets are superior quality braided nets but which one will best suit your court?
There are 3 decisions to be made when choosing your tennis net

  • Net length, 40 or 42 ft?
  • Net drop, 3/4 drop or full drop?
  • Net mesh, single or double mesh?

The following three steps will help you to make these decisions but we are always available for help via email or phone

  Step One

Net Length

Establishing a new court? 
A standard size court requires a 42 foot (12.8m) net.

For an existing court?
To establish which length net you require you simply need to measure the distance between your posts. It is important however to measure the distance from the correct place so the net fits snuggly against the post, this depends on which winder system you have;

  • If your tennis posts have an Internal Winder System measure the distance from inside post to inside post
  • If your tennis posts have the older style External Winder System measure the distance from the end of the winder to the inside hook on the opposite post

Nets come in two standard lengths 42 feet (12.8m) and 40 feet (12.2m). If you have an unusual court measurement because of site restrictions our nets can be trimmed to a custom length at an additional charge

 Step Two

Net Drop

3/4 drop or a full drop? This choice  is purely personal preference.

  • Full Drop: Gives the court a professional tournament look and is aesthetically pleasing
  • 3/4 Drop: Gives users the practicality of being able to return balls under the net 

 Step Three

Net Mesh

Single mesh or double mesh?

  • Single Mesh: 1 layer of braided mesh. Perfect for a private court.
  • Double Mesh: 2 layers of braided mesh on the top 6 rows of the net (where the ball most often hits the net) This aids longevity and is designed with high use courts in mind. 
  • NB: All our nets have a polyester head band, resistant to strong UV rays.
