Basketball Court Netting and Gymnasium Nets for Basketball Containment

Netting for basketball containment purposes is a very popular product offering that we have available at, and the nets that we supply for basketball purposes greatly enhance the functionality and effectiveness of gymnasium training areas.  Many of our netting customers are facilities, organizations, schools, and municipal establishments that require different areas of their basketball court and gymnasium locations to be segmented into different practice areas – or to properly contain errant basketballs from rolling/bouncing out of the playing space.  Having an effective barrier within a basketball court or gymnasium area helps to make practice more efficient, and also enhances the safety of bystanders and athletes that are training in separate areas of the space.  The netting options and custom net products available from are your perfect solution for basketball containment purposes, and we have them available to be supplied according to any custom dimensions and sizing required for your project.

Gourock specializes in the supply of 100% Made in USA nylon netting, built from the highest quality DuPont type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon twine – and we have a wide variety of different mesh sizes and twine thicknesses to consider using.  Basketball nets are often preferred to be produced in popular mesh sizes of 4″, 2″ and 1-3/4″ – all of which we have readily available to prepare to any sizing you particularly need.  The most popular basketball netting option that we ship out is the 4″ mesh size, which is great for larger-objects such as basketball, soccer, volleyball, football, dodgeball, and other similar activities.  For our customers that want to have a bit more of a multipurpose training space that also incorporate some sports like tennis, baseball, roller hockey, or other smaller diameter balls/objects, a really great option to use is the 1-3/4″ mesh size netting.  Another reason why a 1-3/4″ or 2″ mesh size netting may be preferred for use in a gymnasium or basketball court area is to prevent athlete or bystander hands/feet/arms from being able to poke-through the mesh opening of the netting.

A great benefit to using for your netting supply is not only the ability to have nets custom built to size, but also the fact that you can have many different features and options integrated into the netting design as well.  We supply customers and clients from every aspect of the basketball netting industry, ranging from professional training facilities, to universities and scholastic installations, to private residential homeowners.  For a good reference on some of the very high-end basketball barrier nets that we routinely have produced and shipped out, here is a great example of a nationally recognized basketball training organization that uses Gourock netting for their arena and basketball court installations.

Our client builds out professional basketball training and shooting facilities within various different arenas throughout the country, and they require very high strength and dependable barrier nets that have very specific sizing and customized feature needs.  For many years has shipped out custom nylon netting panels that are fabricated from the #36 X 1-3/4″ square mesh DuPont knotted nylon netting.  This is a high-strength twine thickness that has maximum abrasion resistance, resulting in a fantastic commercially-oriented safety netting for professional basketball facilities.

All around the perimeter of each netting panel is a 1-1/2″ webbing-bordered edge, with grommets stamped at 12″ intervals.  This type of bordering has a very finished-off appearance, and also allows for many different attachment points that can be well utilized during the installation and hanging of the nets.  And finally, because each different basketball hoop and shooting area needs to be easily accessed by players and coaches, there are various nets that have rope-bordered entrance doors that are specifically placed at different intervals to correspond with the layout of the court design and shooting/training zones. can assist and supply you with basketball barrier nets and containment netting, and we invite you to contact us with your inquiries or requests.  We can provide you with some advice or quotations for your specific project or netting needs, and we also have immediate online ordering of custom nets directly through our Online Custom Netting Calculator.  We look forward to being your source for basketball barrier nets and gymnasium containment netting!
