Recently we produced and shipped a series of netting panels for a residential customer of ours that needed nets to surround the sand volleyball court that they have in their backyard. The issue that they were alleviating was the inconvenience of constantly chasing down and retrieving errant volleyballs as they flew out of the court space. In addition, they wanted to avoid volleyballs flying out into their neighbor’s property, and from crashing into the bushes and vegetation on their property line. These are all very typical factors in which the usage of barrier nets is a great benefit for backyard netting needs – and certainly to enhance the function of volleyball court locations.

#15 X 4″ Twisted-Knotted Nylon Netting used for Blocking Errant Volleyballs

In this recent customer order and production, they opted for the #15 X 4″ nylon netting for their volleyball containment solution. This has historically been a very popular choice for blocking volleyballs, for both indoor and outdoor netting installations. The #15 twisted nylon twine has a tensile rating of 125 lbs., making it a strong and dependable net choice that also is lightweight and minimally visible. This barrier netting is built in a convenient square mesh pattern, and typically manufactured with a 5/16″ polyester rope bordered perimeter edge around it (when supplied to sports court netting jobs). On this backyard netting order that is exactly how this series of nets were prepared. In this case our customer was seeking volleyball containment nets for both sides and both ends of their sand court. They opted for 2 netting panels that were built 10′ X 65′ to be used on the long sides, and then 2 additional nets that were 10′ X 35′ for use on the ends of the volleyball court. Our customer had a series of support posts surrounding their sand court, which do a perfect job of suspending the netting around the area. As you can see from the customer-provided photos below, these barrier nets look great and also provide effective containment protection against errant volleyballs.
