Outdoor Barrier Netting for Backyards and Sports Courts

Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom nets that are constructed to your own preferred dimensions, which works out very well for different barrier netting projects that people have at their home properties, backyards, and sport court areas.  For many of these types of projects, the best netting solution is one that contains typical sports objects and balls such as basketballs, hockey pucks, baseballs/softballs, tennis balls, soccer balls, lacrosse balls, volleyballs, etc.  Fortunately through Gourock's website you can locate the best-fit mesh size net for your particular needs, and in a variety of different twine thicknesses as well.

For instance, if you are concerned only with blocking larger objects for such sports as soccer, basketball, football, volleyball, and dodgeball - you may want to most consider a netting with a larger mesh size, such as the 4" mesh nets that we have available.

Alternatively, if you'd like to have a functional netting barrier for sports that have smaller balls/objects such as baseball, tennis, hockey, and lacrosse - then a good fit is the 1-3/4" mesh size netting that we supply.  The 1-3/4" is a great multipurpose mesh size since it functions really well for both the smaller balls, as well as the larger object sports as well.

And then if you need to consider even smaller objects, such as golf balls, you can go with the 3/4" mesh size netting, or the 1" mesh size as well.  The smaller mesh nets such as these 2 mesh sizes are also selected for situations where people would like to block/contain all of the different balls or objects that may be flying around the space - and also would like a barrier against leaves or debris as well.

The custom netting supplied by Gourock is 100% Made in the USA, and we offer very quick mfg. turnaround times for your specialized sizing preferences.  You can order right online using the convenient Online Custom Netting Calculator which allows for a variety of different supply options and shipping options.  We ship netting out to thousands of customers per year, ranging from small private home users all the way up the largest professional, industrial, and commercial entities in the country.

Here are a couple of great examples of recent backyard netting installations that two of our customers from last month finished up.  They do a really nice job of showing a couple of different installations that utilize a very similar installation approach, but with different overall function needs and sizing requirements:

Example 1:
This netting supply was for a customer's private home backyard in New York.  They have a full-size soccer goal back there to practice shooting drills with, and of course that means that there are errant shots that were passing the goal.  He has a 7' tall fence lining the property, however it was not tall enough to contain the missed shots effectively.
So his goal was to get another 7' of containment clearance above his existing fence, and at the same time protect the fence itself from the consistent impacts of soccer balls.  The best netting match in this case was the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting, with a rope bordering around the perimeter edges.  The 4" mesh size is perfect for soccer barrier applications, and the #15 twine thickness is great to keep the overall netting installation as minimally-visible as possible.  As you can see from the following two photos, it certainly is a great looking mesh selection.  The netting in this project is 14' tall X 50' wide.
For the installation approach, he purchased Gourock's In-Ground Sleeves (for 2" poles) and set them at 12' spacing.  He then sourced 2" diameter poles from his local fencing supplier, which are then slid down into the in-ground sleeve for support.  Connecting the netting vertically down the poles was accomplished using the Bungee Ball Attachment Straps that we also have available.

Thank you again Chuck!  It was very nice working with you, and the finished project looks really great!



Example 2:
This netting and materials supply was for a customer in New York that has a backyard sports court and hockey rink that needed barrier netting around it to contain hockey pucks and basketballs.  As you'll be able to see in the photo below, it's a multipurpose rink that also incorporates two basketball hoops as well.  He already had his rink walls surrounding the play area, so was seeking to get netting made that would extend up over the existing walls, and overlap them slightly to avoid any gaps.  He did not need netting to go all the way down to the ground, as the plan was to connect the bottom of the netting to the walls themselves.
The best match for the netting in this case was the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, square mesh, with a rope bordering around the perimeter.  This is a great choice for general hockey puck barrier, as well as for basketball barrier and any other typically-sized object being used within the sport court area.  There were 3 netting panels needed in total:  One of them at 8' X 122', and then two of them at 8' X 35'.
For the installation approach, he purchased 22 of Gourock's In-Ground Sleeves (for 2" poles) and set them at relatively equal spacing intervals.  He then sourced 2" diameter poles from his local fencing supplier, which are then slid down into the in-ground sleeve for support.  Connecting the netting vertically down the poles was accomplished using the Bungee Ball Attachment Straps that we also have available.

The project looks really great Corey!  Thank you again, and it was nice working with you!

Custom Nylon Netting for Industrial Applications

Gourock.com supplies custom nylon netting to a wide variety of customers that have unique applications and uses for the materials that we have available.  Oftentimes, the nets we ship out are used for more traditional jobs such as stadiums, gymnasiums, and sports fields.  Other very popular needs are for bird exclusion, pond barrier, and golf range/fairway barrier uses.  But aside from some of the more typical types of netting installations, there are always many industrial situations where the nylon netting we provide is meant to solve a very particular set of circumstances.

Typically we see a lot of these more specific needs within the broad range of general industrial netting applications.  Nylon netting is really well suited for many industrial locations such as warehouses, processing facilities, construction sites, municipal locations, and business/retail complexes.  Gourock.com has a pretty wide range of twine thicknesses and mesh sizes available to consider using for your unique needs - and the netting is prepared per-order so that you have the ability to get nets made to your own preferred sizing and dimensions.  Some examples that we have experience in are:

  • pallet rack and conveyor belt nets
  • railing and loft barrier nets
  • debris barrier and containment uses
  • lighting protection nets
  • warehouse divider netting
Recently, we had a customer at a commercial business/retail location that was experiencing a series of problems with the brick facade of their building.  Due to some construction design issues they were occasionally having pieces of tiling becoming dislodged from the wall of the building and falling a couple of stories down to the sidewalk below.  The facade was going to be reinforced and fixed, but in the meantime they needed to ensure that a loose tile would be able to freely fall down and cause safety issues for the pedestrians on the ground.

Their preference was for a strong material that had a larger mesh size, and a minimally visible appearance.  The best match was the #15 X 4" DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  The #15 twine thickness features a 144 lb. tensile strength rating, and the 4" mesh size keeps the amount of material per square foot to a minimum.  The tiles are all about 12" square, so the mesh size of the 4" functions very well to contain them close to the wall in the event they come loose and fall down.  The netting was basically intended to be a debris cover to protect anyone down on the sidewalk and to keep the falling tiles as close to the facade wall as possible.

Here is a short series of photos demonstrating this unique usage of the nylon netting that we supply at Gourock.com - and you can always feel free to order online through our Online Custom Netting Calculator or contact us for a quote if you prefer!

Netting at Coors Field in Denver - Colorado Rockies Stadium

This past February we supplied a custom netting production for installation at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado.  Coors Field is the home to the MLB's Colorado Rockies baseball team, and is located in downtown Denver.  The need for this particular netting was unique, as the intention was for a dependable bird barrier running along the entire centerfield mezzanine-level staircases - and since the area was pretty clearly exposed to the outside street and sidewalks, the bird barrier netting needed to be as visually unobtrusive as possible.

The solution for this request was a custom-colored nylon netting construction that would closely blend-in with the surrounding infrastructure.  All of the steel at Coors Field is painted a specific green color that is known as "Coors Green", so it was requested that the netting be fabricated to match that color pigment as to remain as camouflaged as possible when installed.

The goal over at Coors Field was to completely block-off the mezzanine stairwells to keep small birds from entering and nesting in those areas.  Also, the netting would be a multi-purpose barrier to prevent various and miscellaneous objects from being able to fall or passed-through the existing rails.  the best match for this type of installation, taking into account the custom coloring, was the #26 X 1" square mesh braided-knotless nylon netting.  The 1" mesh size functions very well for small bird barrier (as well as general-purpose containment), and the mid-weight #26 twine thickness (2.2mm) provides for long-term durability in terms of exposure and abrasion.

Each net was constructed to particular heights and lengths to match the open areas that needed to be blocked-off, and there was a total of 231' of netting required to cover the center-field stairways.  Each net was colored to the custom "Coors Green" pigment, and featured a 5/16" rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The netting was then installed on-site by the local contractor in-charge of the project - and they clipped the netting tightly between tensioned cables.

Gourock.com specializes in supplying custom netting solutions for many different types of industrial, commercial, and municipal locations.  Professional stadiums as well as collegiate facilities are also very well served by using the barrier netting supplied by Gourock to best handle their particular needs.  Coors Field is a great example of a high-profile commercial location that required functional and dependable netting that needed to be as minimally visually obtrusive as possible.  Here is a series of photos that show the netting and the installation context from around the stadium - and as you are doing your research into custom netting solutions please feel free to contact us at Gourock.com and we can take a look at what you're aiming for.

Drone UAV Netting at US Space & Rocket Center

Gourock.com supplies nylon netting for drone and UAV barrier purposes, and we ship nets out for installations that are both very large and also more constrained in overall sizing.  Drone netting is used for a variety of different needs, and some popular UAV netting uses are for trade shows and conventions, university research applications, commercial drone racing facilities, airport and municipality requirements, and also for organizational installations.

There are many different mesh and twine sizes available for drone and UAV safety nets - although the most typically preferred are the #21 X 1-3/4” knotted nylon, or the lighter-weight #12 X 1-3/4” knotted nylon netting. Alternatively for a bit of a larger mesh size, the #15 X 4” knotted nylon, or the thicker #30 X 4” knotted nylon are both suitable and popular as well.  Gourock.com offers drone netting prepared to any custom dimensions that you require, and it is very conveniently sourced right through our Online Netting Calculator:

The DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting that Gourock supplies is the ideal material for drone and UAV safety and barrier installations.  Some notable features include:
  • a very high tensile strength rating
  • a very lightweight physical load per square foot
  • high abrasion resistance
  • UV stabilization with latex/urethane bonding against moisture

  • 100% Made in the USA
  • prepared per-order, to custom dimensions, with fast preparation and turnaround
If you have a drone netting installation that you'd like to get some information on options, quotations, or receive netting samples for - please feel free to contact Gourock and we can assist!

The US Space & Rocket Center is located in Huntsville, AL and is the home to the well-known Space Camp.  A large drone and UAV enclosure area was constructed at their facility, and Gourock supplied the custom netting needed for the project.  After considering several different twine/mesh options, they opted for the #12 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, diamond mesh pattern, with a 5/16" braided polyester rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  The nets were prepared to match their installation area, which was four nets of 44' X 151', and then 3 more nets of 51' X 151'.  Just shy of 700 lbs. of nylon netting, and shipped out within 2 weeks of the finalized order.

As per WAFF news:

Huntsville Gets First Outdoor Drone Space
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Huntsville now has its very first outdoor drone facility at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. It looks like a huge net but it serves a purpose.

"A pilot can stand on the outside and they can fly their vehicle on the inside," said Space & Rocket Center's Camp Director, Anthony Greer. "So, there's that extra layer of protection especially for new pilots who've never flown before."

Greer said it can also be used for those who are more experienced.

"The idea is to engage the community and give them a safe place to fly."

The Space & Rocket Center will use the new drone safe space for the first time at this Saturday's Alabama International Drone Day.

"We want it open to the public so that people can come learn the safe flight of unmanned aerial systems, what are the rules and regulations around that and just to learn more about drones in general," said Greer.

They're still working out a plan to make it more accessible to the public more often.
Meantime, their younger visitors will practice flying drones this summer.

"We're also going to use it for our camp programs moving forward in space camp, robotics and also aviation challenge."

Custom Golf Netting Enclosures

Gourock.com specializes in supplying customized netting productions for a variety of unique uses, including many golf hitting and golf ball containment applications.  In many instances, the golf nets that we ship out for our customers are being used within golf cage frames or being used for typical golf cage installations.  Golf cage nets primarily are used for driving full-velocity drives and shots from a close-range distance, and are to block, catch, and contain the golf balls within the space.  Typically a golf cage netting enclosure will incorporate impact and barrier netting for both sides, the top/ceiling, and the back end (all seamed together with rope borders).

Gourock offers golf cage netting enclosures that are built per-order, according to your own preferred sizing and dimensions.  Any height, width, and overall length can be fabricated and shipped out, and ordering online is efficient and easy directly through our Online Custom Golf Cage Netting Calculator:
http://www.gourock.com/golfcages.html

Built from the highest quality DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, the custom golf nets available from Gourock are 100% Made In The USA, and are fabricated per-order.  The mesh size that is used for golf impact and direct containment netting is a 3/4" mesh, and there are two twine thicknesses available to select from - which are #15 (1.8mm, 144 lb./tensile) and a heavier #21 (2.0mm, 241 lb./tensile).  Most golf cage nets also utilize a secondary reinforcement netting panel that covers the entire back-end of the netting enclosure, which is called an impact net.  The impact net aids in reinforcing the back of the cage netting that ends up taking the majority of the wear-and-tear from golf shots, and are composed from the heavier #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting.  The Custom Golf Cage Netting Calculator provides the option to add the secondary impact panel net to the overall job.

Many of the custom golf cage nets that are supplied by Gourock.com are pretty straightforward in general design, and simply feature the specified dimensions needed.  However for many customers there are quite a few customized design aspects that are incorporated into the overall production, including:

  • tapers and angles
  • additional reinforcement ropes installed
  • weighted rope bottom edges
  • combinations of twine thicknesses for the netting walls/ends
  • divider panel nets
  • fully-enclosed designs
  • portals, door areas, and notches
Many of the golf nets that are supplied by Gourock.com are shipped to private use and residential customers.  But there are many commercial and professional customers that utilize golf cage nets for training facilities, golf courses, pro-shops, driving ranges, field houses, and other high-abrasion and high-traffic installations.  These nets are often over-sized in dimensions, and utilize a variety of the additional features noted above.  If you have some more specific or unique features that you're considering having incorporated into your golf netting design, certainly feel free to contact Gourock to get a quote on your particular request.

Here are a couple of custom golf cage nets that were produced and shipped out in the last couple of weeks that each show some of the unique characteristics and features required by our customers for their golf netting installations.  Both are oversized nets that were built for commercial and professional training applications.

Example 1:
This golf cage net features a very large overall volume of 36' high X 77' wide X 92' long.  Built for a golf facility, they also required a series of reinforcement ropes to be run through the mesh - to be used when hanging and suspending the netting to their framing structure.  A very unique feature of this production was that both side nets and the ceiling net are the #15 X 3/4" knotted nylon, whereas the back end panel netting is from the thicker #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting.

Example 2:
This golf cage net also features an oversized volume, with a spacious 11' height X 23' width X 23' length.  Built for a private golf training installation from the #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon netting, it also incorporates 2 additional ceiling reinforcement ropes, and 3' long rope tie-off tails.  The secondary impact net on this production also has a weighted-rope "leadline" bottom edge.

Custom Batting Cage Nets - Commercial Use

Gourock supplies very customized batting cage nets that are designed and constructed for professional commercial users, as well as for university, league/team, scholastic, and residential customers.  A conventional batting cage netting design is essentially a box-style netting enclosure, incorporating 2 sides, 2 ends, and the ceiling - all seamed together.  Gourock.com readily offers custom batting cage nets built in this style, which you can order to any 3 dimensions you prefer, right through our online Custom Nylon Batting Cage Netting Calculator:
http://www.gourock.com/battingcage_nylon.html

These nets are constructed per-order, 100% Made in the USA, from the highest-quality DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting.  There are 3 twine thicknesses to consider (#21, #36, and #72), and are a fantastic custom netting product for customers that have specific sizing needs to accommodate.  They often range from being very large volume enclosures with divider nets, to much smaller enclosure nets that are required for constrained spaces.

However, we also do very customized designs that have many significant sizing, shape, and unique characteristics to account for.  Some examples of these features are:
  • tapers and angles
  • doors and entrances
  • reinforced netting areas
  • notches and cutouts
  • divider panels and impact netting zones
  • specifically spaced ceiling lines
  • open end panels
Usually the types of custom batting cage nets that require such unique characteristics are those that are being used for professional and commercial installations.  These include training facilities, professional and university stadiums, marketing events and trade-shows, corporate headquarters, and other similar commercial sites.  Should you have some more unique customized requirements that you're seeking for your batting cage netting installation, feel free to contact Gourock with your request and we can certainly take a look at things and get a quote prepared for what we can supply and ship out to your location.

For example, here are 2 examples from the last couple of weeks that clearly demonstrate the amount of customization that is available from Gourock.com with regards to batting cage netting enclosures:

Example 1:
This following net is a very heavy-duty baseball netting design constructed from the thickest #72 X 1-3/4" DuPont® nylon netting.  This is actually the second one of these produced for our customer in South Plainfield, NJ, with the first one being from 2017.  This one is joining that original net at the facility (since the original design has worked so well for their space and their business).  There were actually a couple more very specialized characteristics added to the first design, which took a really custom job in the first place and made it even more specialized for their specific space!
  • sloped profile  shape and sizing needs
  • "flared-out" end area to correspond with their tapered framing
  • notched end-panel construction to line-up with a fence/wall
  • specific netting "cutout" zone to line-up with an existing door
  • extra ceiling line ropes
  • secondary double-layers of reinforcement netting built-in to both side walls
  • secondary double-layer of reinforcement netting built into the flared-out ceiling
Example 2:
This following net is for a fan-involvement pitching display at Miller Field in Milwaukee, WI (Brewers Stadium).  Our customer had a very specific framing construction that needed the netting to be built to function as needed for the space and the intended use.  Nets like this one are generally supplied to national marketing firms that are running the events and displays at every home-game for one of their particular clients.  In this case, the netting enclosure area is constructed from the #36 X 1-3/4" DuPont® knotted nylon, with secondary impact areas built from the heavier #72 X 1-3/4".
  • specific sizing and dimensions
  • customized open end-panel with mid baffle
  • secondary/separate end panel nets to slide "curtain-style" under the framing
  • secondary/separate impact panel nets to absorb pitches
  • heavy-rope (leadline) bottom edges

http://www.gourock.com/custom-soccer-netting.html

Last month we supplied a series of custom soccer barrier netting productions for use at an installation at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan, NYC.  The event was a professional job being built for the New York City Football Club (NYCFC) 24 Hour Game:
via the New York Post: https://nypost.com/2018/03/09/nycfc-kicks-off-24-hour-soccer-marathon-at-rockefeller-center/

New York City FC kicked off its soccer marathon ahead of Sunday’s home opener against the Los Angeles Galaxy with a day-long soccer match at Rockefeller Center Friday afternoon.

The two teams — Team Villa vs. Team Vieira — will comprise over 500 New Yorkers participating in a 24-hour, five-on-five game on an artificial field smack in front of 30 Rockefeller Place.

The netting that was facilitated by Gourock for this job was a series of nets built for the surrounding perimeter area, as well as nets to cover the top of the scaffolding structure covering the playing field.  The netting for this project was built from DuPont® type 66-728 twisted nylon twine, and prepared in a knotted mesh construction.  The nets were all fabricated with a diamond mesh pattern, and each had a 5/16" braided polyester rope bordering installed around all 4 edges.  There were a few different combinations of sizes needed for the overall installation:

Surrounding perimeter soccer barrier netting:
Cover netting for the top of the scaffolding structure:
Here are a series of photos from the event, which do a great job of demonstrating how the custom soccer netting that we have available can be used in high-profile public professional settings.
Thank you again to everyone involved with this project - it was great working with you!

There are many industrial applications that are well-suited for the custom nylon netting productions available from Gourock, and we have many years of experience with this type of custom netting supply.  Industrial uses for netting often involve more "behind-the-scenes" uses, meaning that the materials are being installed in areas or spaces that are within warehouses, factories, shipping facilities and depots, transportation infrastructure, zoos and aviaries, conveyor belt and pallet racking locations, drone and UAV netting, and other similar industrially-oriented locations.

There are quite a few popular needs for nylon barrier nets that are used for industrial solutions, and with the variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses of netting available from Gourock.com you can find the best match for your particular needs and preferences.  We supply nets constructed to most any particular dimensions/sizes required, and in many cases the netting also incorporates more unique features such as tapered shapes, or additional support ropes to install the netting with.

Some examples of netting applications that are frequently shipped out from Gourock to our industrial customers are:
  • warehouse bird barrier nets
  • retention pond barrier netting
  • debris nets around machines and mechanical processes

Custom Enclosure Nets for Professional Sports Installations

Many professional and commercial sports facilities require customized netting enclosures for their establishments, and Gourock.com specializes in the supply of custom nylon netting productions for such installations.  A netting enclosure is a 3-dimensional product design featuring side, end, and ceiling nets that are all seamed together.  Contextually, a box/shell design in which balls and objects that are flying around the enclosed area are well-contained and do not leave the netted-in space.  Some commonly known applications for enclosed netting designs are baseball batting cage nets, and golf cage nets.  However, at Gourock.com we have supplied enclosures for many different sports and industrial purposes such as cricket, lacrosse, birds and aviary uses, drones and UAV containment, soccer, dodgeball, basketball, and specialty training needs.

Gourock.com can supply custom netting enclosures built to most any particular dimensions needed for the job, and you can specify the overall Height X Width X Length that is needed to be installed for your space.  For professional uses, we see nets of all sizes - since each application is unique and different.  Sometimes the netting is meant to encapsulate the entire area of a large warehouse or field-house facility.  Other times the netting is meant for a smaller space, such as a retail or office location - such as golf pro shops, administrative locations, or dedicated spaces meant for more individual practice needs.  And then in many other instances there are large outdoor areas that have permanent telephone/power-line poles installed that will be supporting very large outdoor containment nets such as golf driving ranges, drone racing facilities, and zoo/aviary/falconry establishments.  Gourock.com has quite a few netting mesh size and twine thickness options available to consider, so for the various different uses that require netting, we generally have a netting construction that will fit-the-bill well for your project.

Built from 100% Made-in-USA materials and hand-craftsmanship, the custom netting enclosure from Gourock.com feature DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon materials.  This is a very high-quality material that is known for very high tensile ratings and abrasion resistance, which makes it the preferred choice for commercial and professional establishments - for both outdoor and indoor uses.  And because the custom netting productions available from Gourock are made for your particular and specific job, there are usually other specific features that are often needed to be incorporated into the overall design such as entrance doors, divider nets, secondary impact panel nets, weighted bottom edges, additional ceiling attachment/connection lines, tapers or angles, and unique shape considerations.

We invite you to contact Gourock.com to inquire about quotations, netting samples, or general questions that you may have about sourcing a custom net for your establishment.  We work with customers of all types - ranging from very high-level professional clients, to university and municipality customers, to private individuals and small businesses.  Over the last couple months Gourock has facilitated the quoting, designing, production, and shipment of many unique netting enclosure jobs - and here are three examples of some of the professional and commercial nets that have more recently been manufactured and shipped to some of our appreciated customers:


Example 1
Netting Type:  #72 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, black, diamond mesh
Custom Features:  specialized dimensions, entrance door, weighted rope bottom, secondary impact panel net

Volleyball Barrier Netting

Volleyball courts and volleyball facilities often need to use barrier netting around them to contain volleyballs from leaving the practice and playing areas.  Gourock.com supplies nylon netting that is perfectly suited for volleyball barrier installations, and can have the netting prepared according to any particular custom dimensions that you require for the job.  Volleyball barrier netting is generally a bit of a larger mesh size netting, such as a 4" mesh size material.  A mesh size like this functions very well to contain and block larger sports objects like volleyballs, basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, and dodge balls.  But in combination with the functionality, the larger mesh size of 4" means that you can minimize the amount of netting within the entire area - which keeps the netting minimally visible, and as lightweight as possible.

There are a couple of twine thicknesses available in the 4" mesh size nylon netting that Gourock supplies for volleyball barrier netting uses, and they are the #15 (1.7mm) and the heavier #30 (2.3mm).  Both are fantastic for volleyball containment netting uses, and have their own set of preferred features.  For instance, the #15 is most popular for indoor installations because there is no detrimental effect from UV exposure, and the thinner twine thickness minimizes the amount of material pre square foot (which means that the most amount of light can shine though, and the netting is minimally visible).  The #30 is more popular for longterm outdoor installations, or for areas that expect higher amounts of wear/abrasion - such as commercial or high-traffic areas.
That said - both the #15 and the #30 can and are installed in both outdoor and indoor installations, and you can view/price/order them from this page of the Gourock site:

Many schools, training facilities, and commercial sports businesses require volleyball barrier netting to surround their individual courts from each other, as well as to block balls from passing into spectator areas.  Here are a couple of example photos from Indoor Sand in Northwood, OH - a Gourock customer that installed the #15 X 4" knotted nylon netting for their volleyball containment purposes.  You can check out their establishment at www.indoorsand.com - and thanks again, we appreciate your business!
