Basketball Court Netting and Custom Gymnasium Nets

Basketball Court Netting and Custom Gymnasium Nets


At Gourock.com, basketball barrier netting is available to be prepared to your own preferred custom dimensions, which can be entered into our online custom netting calculator. Nets for basketball court or hoop containment are supplied for commercial, industrial, municipal, and residential applications - and are chosen for barrier installations in both outdoor and indoor settings. There are seven recommended netting types and sizes used for basketball barrier purposes, all of which are available according to your own custom sizing.

4” and 1-3/4” mesh nets are both recommended for basketball barrier netting, and we supply those meshes in a range of twine thicknesses. All are constructed from 100% Made in USA DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon.

#21, #30, and #36 twine thickness nets are recommended for basketball courts, indoor divider nets, barrier nets, spectator protection, indoor training center nets, gymnasium barrier, driveways, and most all multipurpose basketball netting installations for residential, scholastic, municipal, commercial, and professional uses.

#12 and #15 twine thickness are good selections for lightweight and low-impact general basketball protection, and are popular for high-ceiling protection, lighting and sprinkler barrier, indoor window barrier, and other multipurpose basketball net uses where the thinnest and lightest netting option is preferred.

Most net options are black in coloring, but for basketball barrier netting installations that may require some alternative colors, consider the #40 X 2” knotless nylon netting selection which can be supplied in Black, White, Grey, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Tan and Magenta/Red.

For incorporating a very heavy-duty type of basketball barrier netting, the #72 twine thickness nylon is the maximum-strength and abrasion-resistant selection.


Gymnasiums and gyms that focus on activities that use medium-sized balls such as baseball, softball, lacrosse, and tennis should most consider the 1-3/4” mesh nylon netting. 1-3/4” mesh size is a multipurpose sports netting product that is used for a wide range of protective netting uses, including baseball hitting nets, batting cage nets, structural barrier and protection (windows, ceilings, scoreboards, lighting), bleacher and spectator netting, divider nets, impact netting, kicking nets, and general multipurpose sports barrier netting applications. 1-3/4” also functions very well for larger balls/objects as well.

A gymnasium that has a primary concern regarding larger balls/objects like soccer, basketball, volleyball, and football can use the 4” mesh nylon netting. The 4” mesh nylon netting is very functional and dependable for soccer netting, basketball barrier netting, volleyball containment nets, football barrier netting, and general purpose sports netting applications that feature larger objects. 4” mesh nylon netting is very popular for soccer and volleyball training facilities, for football field goal catch nets, and for scoreboard barrier nets.

Over the last few weeks, one of our commercial netting clients required custom netting panels fabricated for their own particular installation needs on-site.  They typically have nets built to correlate with the spacing of the different hoop and training zones, along with taking into account specific entry ways through the netting.  As this is a commercial sports application, the preferred netting material for them is the #36 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon.  These nets are fabricated in a square mesh pattern with a 1-1/2" webbing border sewn-on, and featuring brass grommets stamped around the edges every 12".

Also custom on these basketball gymnasium barrier nets is the incorporation of rope-bordered pass-though areas that are built in.  These entry slits are spaced out on specific intervals in order to line-up with the different individual shooting and training zones within the overall facility.

Feel free to get in touch with us at Gourock.com for all of your inquiries into custom netting solutions for gymnasium and basketball barrier installations!  We specialize in supplying the highest-quality nylon netting productions that are individually prepared according to your own custom sizing needs!

Recent Custom Sports Netting and Nylon Net Productions

Recent Custom Sports Netting and Nylon Net Productions


At Gourock.com we specialize in supplying very customized nylon sports netting productions, which are used for a wide variety of different athletic applications.  Nylon netting is a fantastic solution for most all sports, athletic, and training purposes - and with Gourock.com you have many opportunities available to consider for your sport netting needs.

Our company features custom nets that are fabricated from the highest quality DuPont type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting, which is 100% Made in USA and prepared with expert craftsmanship.  We offer a spectrum of different twine thicknesses and mesh sizes, which all have some popular functions within the sports and athletic environments.  The DuPont nylon that we supply is a very high-quality netting material, and features:


  • high tensile strength rating
  • high abrasion resistance
  • low weight and wind shear %
  • UV protected and bonded against moisture
  • customized dimensions, sizes, shapes, designs
  • 100% Made in USA
Our Gourock.com online custom netting shopping experience is geared towards making your sourcing needs as clear and efficient as possible, while offering premium materials and products that are prepared specifically for your order.  We offer knotted nylon mesh sizes of 3/4", 1", 1-3/4", and 4" square sizing.  And throughout those mesh size selections we offer twine thicknesses ranging from #12 (1.7mm) up to heavy #72 (3.5mm).

Here are 3 recent examples of highly custom nylon netting productions and shipments that we have facilitated and supplied over the last couple weeks here at Gourock.com.  Each one of these examples demonstrates some of the very unique sports netting needs and requirements that we have available - and each one was specifically prepared for each unique customer and considerations.  We welcome you to contact us at Gourock.com for any of your netting and custom net questions or inquiries!

Example 1:
This is an example of a custom baseball/softball batting cage netting enclosure - which is a net design that incorporates 2 side walls, 2 end panels, and 1 top ceiling net.  These are all seamed together with 5/16" polyester rope borders, so that the entire inner volume area within the netting enclosure can block all balls and objects that are flying around the contained area.  This one was fabricated for a private customer's residential installation, and was built from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting.  The sizing of this custom baseball/softball batting cage sports net is 10' high X 12' wide X 50'-4" long - and also featured a 3' overlapping net entrance door incorporated into one corner.

Example 2:
This is a pair of nets that are also constructed from the #21 X 1-3/4" knotted nylon netting, but for a completely different type of sports usage.  These nets were constructed with particular dimensions and tapers/angles in order to properly line-up with the surrounding ice-rink boards that our customer had at his location.  The barrier nets were needed around the rink boards in order to block and contain objects within the ice for their recreational Broom-Ball league, games, and practice.  These nets are expected to be setup in an outdoor, fulltime winter installation - and feature 5/16" rope borders around the edges.

Example 3:
This job was a custom netting production and supply for a brand new driving range facility being constructed in Texas.  This order included 24 custom netting panels, built to 50' and 60' heights, with 75' overall lengths.  Each net features a 5/16" polyester rope bordering around the edges, along with a horizontal rope wind-line through the middle of each net as well.  These nets were fabricated from the #12 X 1" tarred DuPont knotted nylon netting - which is a fantastic and very popular golf barrier netting and driving range ball containment material.

Driving Range Netting and Golf Barrier Nets, Connecticut Installation

Driving Range Netting and Golf Barrier Nets, Connecticut Installation


At Gourock.com we specialize in the supply of custom netting and customized barrier nets.  Barrier nets and protective netting panels are used for a very wide range of different types of applications, and generally the main purpose is to either contain objects within a particular space - or to keep objects out of a certain area.  One of the more well-known applications for protective barrier netting is in the golf industry - and generally can be seen installed at driving ranges, country clubs and golf courses, properties along fairways, and golf training facilities.  Gourock.com has many, many years of experience supplying the highest quality custom golf barrier nets that are constructed according to your own preferred sizes.  Considering Gourock's availability of barrier netting that is prepared per-order, nets can be built to match your own particular and unique coverage areas.

Golf barrier netting is used primarily to keep golf balls contained within a driving range area (or along a fairway) in order to lower the chances of property damage and lost balls, as well as enhancing spectator/human/pedestrian safety.  Golf range barrier nets need to be dependable in outdoor environments for an extended period of time, while taking into consideration many durability and usage variables such as netting strength and physical weight, material resilience to exposure, wind conditions, visibility considerations, and proper product fit.

Gourock.com supplies driving range barrier nets that are constructed from 100% DuPont® Type 66-728 Twisted-Knotted Tarred Nylon Netting, featuring a 1" mesh size and a 5/16" rope bordering sewn-in around the perimeter edges.  These are premium Made in USA materials and fabrications, and are highly recommended for long-term golf driving range and barrier netting installations.  There are 2 twine thicknesses available to consider, which are the #12 (116 lb./twine) and the #18 (191 lb./twine) and both can be researched and customer ordered directly through our Golf Barrier Netting section of our site:
https://www.gourock.com/golfbarrier.html

LaPorta Partners LLC, a commercial customer of ours from Milford, CT recently finished up a driving range netting installation in which they replaced all of the barrier nets at a practice location in Fairfield, CT.  This job is a great example of how a functional and durable driving range netting installation is accomplished - and here at Gourock.com we were very appreciative about a set of photos and footage that they sent our way to show the job.

Although Gourock does not provide installation services, we do offer some general context, basic approaches, and hardware item options on our site:
