Basketball Court Netting and Custom Gymnasium Nets

Friday, December 27th, 2019

At, 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.
