In a tennis court the minimum recommended distance between the baselines and the backstop netting is 15 feet, being 21 feet the standard distance when tournaments take place. The backstop netting height should not be less than 10 feet, but 15 feet is considered the optimal height. Iron and wood posts are driven in the ground at a distance of 10-15 feet. After securing the poles, the netting must be stretched between them and fixed with fastened plastic clips. Hockey Backstop

Discrete and neat appearanceOur backstop netting is available in black. The black color minimizes any aesthetic impact. So its appearance does not bother nor impede visibility. In fact our black backstop netting is practically invisible, less perceivable then the white one. This feature is particularly interesting when it is used in leisure areas like hotels, spa, club, swimming pool. Contrarily at what it is a common thought, the black color in case of netting is the most transparent. So it is possible to see through it. The reason of this is that black mesh does not reflect all the light that we are able to see. In addition darker colors blend better with the surroundings. For creating a more natural result the net can be converted in a green screen. In fact it is possible to grow vining plants over the mesh, to create a more natural appearance. It is possible to achieve optimal vegetal divisions using climbing ornamental plants such as trumpet vine, honeysuckle and roses for example.

Backstop netting installationBackstop netting installation is quick and easy, but it is advisable to do it carefully, because it is the key for the success of the solution. In fact if you choose the wrong material for the posts, or they are not sufficiently buried into the ground, the structure could collapse under the hits of the balls. Using the nets is practical because the structures are removable and easily storable, if desired. But they are also frequently applied in permanent set-ups. It is preferable to use metal or wood vertical poles, high enough according to the distance and the heights of the ball throws. The poles the support the backstop netting must be firm and with a stable upright position. Distance between poles varies. For instance in a golf installation, you should place a pole every fifty feet minimum. Approximately the 10% of the pole should be insert in ground, but it could also vary depending on the type of soil and climate. Additional steel cables along the top and the bottom are useful to stabilize the system and anchors sometimes are needed for guaranteeing more security. The border of the netting is fixed to the cable and the posts. Especially when the soil is very humid, it is possible to consider not to set the support in the ground, but instead on the ground, cabled with a system of wires. This type of installation is preferable in case you need to move the barrier frequently. It can be easily dismounted, plus it is economical to build and maintain.
