Things to Know Before Buying a Tennis Net

Slide2:

Their functionality may be simple, but the tennis nets are undoubtedly an essential part of every tennis court.

Slide3:

The type of net you choose depends on the frequency of use, the length of your playing season and the type of court surface.

Slide4:

Courts with heavy usage and long playing sessions need a net that will last and look good over extended periods of time.

Slide5:

Materials used for tennis nets

Slide6:

The best tennis nets are made of braided net cord material and typically have double the mesh at the top 6 rows, side pockets for fiberglass dowels and vinyl-coated steel cables.

Slide7:

Braided nets are better than twisted because they’re stronger and absorb more energy when a ball hits the net.

Slide8:

Polyethylene and polyester make good net materials because they are resistant to fading from UV radiation and weather well.

Slide9:

Types of tennis net headbands

Slide10:

Polyethylene and polyester make good net materials because they are resistant to fading from UV radiation and weather well.

Slide11:

Generally, the common types of headbands that are used in tennis are made of: - Polyester - Vinyl - Canvas

Slide12:

Polyester

Slide13:

Nets with polyester duck headbands are better for hard courts than for soft courts, where surface material can easily stick to and stain the fabric.

Slide14:

Vinyl

Slide15:

Vinyl headbands are more common on soft courts because they’re easier to clean and more dirt resistant.

Slide16:

Canvas

Slide17:

The canvas headbands are a traditional one and are often cream colored.

Slide18:

Types of headband stitching

Slide19:

Mostly, the tennis nets are durable, but sometimes, a net will start to fail as the stitching that holds the net to the headband begins to break away.

Slide20:

It is important to select the right type of headband stitching while buying your tennis nets which can be categorized into: - Double stitching - Quad stitching

Slide21:

Double stitching

Slide22:

Two lines of stitching across the length of the headband hold the net in place.

Slide23:

Double netting should be adequate for most home tennis courts.

Slide24:

Quad stitching

Slide25:

Four lines of stitching across the length of the headband hold the net in place which maximizes the life expectancy of the tennis net.

Slide26:

Quad stitched tennis nets should be used in clubs, schools or on the tennis courts with heavy usage.

Slide27:

Some important factors

Slide28:

An important consideration when talking about the diameter of the net yarn is whether it is a solid core yarn or a non-core yarn.

Slide29:

Solid core yarns are stronger and stretch less than non-core yarns, making them look and wear better over time.

Slide30:

Headbands are usually vinyl or polyester duck, often with double layers and 4 rows of lock stitching to hold the layers together.
