Tennis nets are available in tournament quality that will survive the weather year round. These nets are made with a coating of polyester. There are nets made from 2.6 mm polyethylene that is braided with the top six rows double braided. Many different thicknesses of netting are available. In addition to the 2.6 mm, there are 3.8 mm, 3.6 mm, 2.5 mm, 3.0 mm, and others.

A double reinforced headband is important to look for in tennis nets. This gives stability to the net. Heavy nylon stitching across the headband and top rows gives a professional look and durability. Some nets come with a fiberglass dowel to secure each end to the net post. A cable of galvanized steel runs through many of the nets for added stability.

Sturdy Tennis Nets

Heavy-duty coating is important to preserve the integrity of tennis nets during inclement weather. Vinyl is used on many nets for the headband. Some nets do not come with the center strap. Make sure you have everything you need for a complete setup. If you are replacing a net, determine the type of connection needed for the posts. If you are setting up a new tennis court, match the quality of the net and posts for long-term use.

Tennis is one of the most popular sports for physical exercise. It is also a sport that can be played year round if an inside court is available. It is popular with children of all ages. This type of exercise should always begin with some good stretches to prevent injuring a muscle or ligament when you make a high jump to clear the net.
