The club has purchased “SwiftNet” portable nets for usage at all of our playing sites.
Here is a portion of the description from PickleballCentral:
“The SwiftNet Portable Pickleball Net System is a game changer for those who play often and desire precise regulation heights from their net. The unique locking system and supportive brace used on this system keep it at the perfect 34" height at the center and 36" height at side lines of the court. The net uses a high-tensile, non-stretch top cord which means that the net doesn't sag or require re-adjustment even after weeks of use. Another big benefit is that the system's poles can simply slide in and out of the feet without needing to slip the net off for easy breakdown and setup. With only five parts, the net can be quickly and easily assembled (or disassembled) in under 3 minutes.
Weighing in at approximately 14 lbs, it is far less of a struggle to move than other net systems in the 25-35 lb range. The structure is made with recycled aerospace-grade carbon fiber, making it stronger than steel, lightweight, and rust resistant. The carbon fiber feet and boom bend (and rebound back into shape) but don't break, and can survive impacts from players during game play without deforming the net structure.”
AS WITH ANY NEW EQUIPMENT, YOU NEED TO SPEND A FEW MINUTES LEARNING HOW TO USE THE NET.
Everyone who plays should know how to set up and take down the nets as it is a responsibility we all share in, so below is a brief video showing how to set up the net. Also, the full setup and takedown instruction document is provided below. You only need to do this once or twice and then you’ll be an expert.
When putting away, please carefully roll up the net so that it doesn't become a tangle and get damaged.
