Basketball and Sports Ball Containment Netting, Customer Installation Over a Fence

Here at we supply netting and nets that are very useful for many athletic and sports applications in which errant balls need to be contained within a court, playing area, or similar athletic practice zone.  For instance, many different basketball court and hoop areas have much better overall functionality when there are nets installed in areas with high tendency for balls leaving the property from missed shots, passes, and bounces.  We see this at a lot of different outdoor basketball hoop installations at private homes, at parks and schools, and at outdoor organizational courts.  The netting that we supply at is a fantastic solution for basketball containment needs, and by using a net or a series of nets around the playing area you can dramatically enhance the convenience and functionality of your court/hoop space by properly blocking balls from leaving the property.  This is especially helpful in situations where errant basketballs fly into neighboring yards, down hills, into streets or roads, into woods or pools/ponds, or into buildings/windows.

Gourock specializes in providing you with netting and nets that are very well suited for basketball and sports containment purposes.  Featuring 100% Made in USA DuPont® 66-728 Nylon, we supply netting that is custom prepared according to any particular sizing or dimensions you require for the project.  A great benefit of using Gourock for your netting needs is that you have very fast availability for netting that is custom made to your preferred sizing, allowing you the best possible fit, function, and appearance for your court and property considerations.  We have great mesh size and twine thickness options to consider, which provides you with different selections to best match your preferences for the finished job.

Here is a recent example that one of our netting customers installed, in which he extended some vertical posts on an existing fence – and hung barrier netting above the fence to contain basketballs from going into the neighboring property.  This is a really great approach that is very efficient and functional.  The netting selected in this case was the #12 X 1-3/4″ DuPont® Twisted-Knotted Nylon with a 5/16″ Dacron® Rope Border installed around the perimeter.  The net was built to a custom dimension that allows for netting coverage above the fence, starting at the top-rail of the fence line and up to the height of each support pole.  The netting was affixed to the poles and the fence line using the Bungee Ball Attachment Straps that we also have available on in the Hardware/Accessories category.  We don’t supply poles/posts from our shop, so to accomplish a similar netting installation at your property we recommend checking with a local or regional supplier of fencing or tubing materials – and then whatever the area of coverage ends up being we can have the netting made to suit.  

As you can see from our customer’s install, having a custom nylon net supplied from results in a really professional appearance, along with highly dependable functionality.  

Many thanks again to all of our custom netting customers!   We greatly appreciate your business and feedback!
