Custom Nylon Netting for Sports Facility

Indoor sports training facilities are generally quite unique establishments that cater to a wide variety of athletes and activities.  Here at we have years of experience supplying a very diverse spectrum of indoor training facilities with custom barrier netting.  We have facilitated netting to be installed within very large arenas, as well as more modestly-sized practice spaces.  Regardless of the amount of area that is required to contain balls/objects, we have a really great selection of netting options to consider - and all of the knotted nylon netting choices can be produced to any dimensions, as well as a variety of custom shapes and tapers.

The main considerations to account for as you plan your installation of barrier netting for the training space are:
  • diameter/size of the objects needing to be contained (baseball, soccer, golf, etc.).
  • amount of wear/abrasion that you expect the netting to be subject to.
  • visual preferences (thinner twine netting vs. thicker).
  • areas that you may need to pass-through or gain access to other parts of the facility.
  • planning for how the netting will be hung/suspended, and if the building itself is already conducive for the netting installation (rafters, cables, walls, etc.).
There are also other general preference considerations that you may want to make based on your own personal ideas, and we can certainly assist as much as possible as far as that side of things.  All things considered, the best bet for sourcing barrier netting for the indoor sports/training facility is the DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting that we specialize in supplying.  This material is very high-quality, extremely user-friendly, features a high tensile strength and abrasion resistance, and we have a long history of providing netting panels according to any dimensions (and many shapes) in order for your facility to be as professional and functional as possible.

You can view many examples of custom netting productions on the Gourock site, as well and throughout this company blog.  Over the last 2 weeks we have facilitated an interesting netting job for a sports facility in Ohio, and you can view the interesting dimensions and shapes that were required for the building.  The selected netting was the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon, diamond mesh pattern, with all edges featuring the 5/16" Dacron® rope bordering installed.  This is probably the most commonly selected netting type and construction for most general multipurpose sports facilities, as the #21 twine is a fantastic value that functions extraordinarily well for most sports.  And due to the tapered shape requirements, the diamond mesh pattern is required - as has been written about previously in this blog (click here for reference).

The best way to get started on getting some pricing quotes for your facility or building is to contact us and forward over the list of panel sizes and quantities that you need.  Diagrams or drawings are certainly accepted, and it is also good to know the types of objects that are required to be contained within the space.
