Volleyball Barrier Netting

Volleyball courts and volleyball facilities often need to use barrier netting around them to contain volleyballs from leaving the practice and playing areas.  Gourock.com supplies nylon netting that is perfectly suited for volleyball barrier installations, and can have the netting prepared according to any particular custom dimensions that you require for the job.  Volleyball barrier netting is generally a bit of a larger mesh size netting, such as a 4″ mesh size material.  A mesh size like this functions very well to contain and block larger sports objects like volleyballs, basketballs, soccer balls, footballs, and dodge balls.  But in combination with the functionality, the larger mesh size of 4″ means that you can minimize the amount of netting within the entire area – which keeps the netting minimally visible, and as lightweight as possible.

There are a couple of twine thicknesses available in the 4″ mesh size nylon netting that Gourock supplies for volleyball barrier netting uses, and they are the #15 (1.7mm) and the heavier #30 (2.3mm).  Both are fantastic for volleyball containment netting uses, and have their own set of preferred features.  For instance, the #15 is most popular for indoor installations because there is no detrimental effect from UV exposure, and the thinner twine thickness minimizes the amount of material pre square foot (which means that the most amount of light can shine though, and the netting is minimally visible).  The #30 is more popular for longterm outdoor installations, or for areas that expect higher amounts of wear/abrasion – such as commercial or high-traffic areas.
That said – both the #15 and the #30 can and are installed in both outdoor and indoor installations, and you can view/price/order them from this page of the Gourock site:

Many schools, training facilities, and commercial sports businesses require volleyball barrier netting to surround their individual courts from each other, as well as to block balls from passing into spectator areas.  Here are a couple of example photos from Indoor Sand in Northwood, OH – a Gourock customer that installed the #15 X 4″ knotted nylon netting for their volleyball containment purposes.  You can check out their establishment at www.indoorsand.com – and thanks again, we appreciate your business!

  1. Looking to create a batting cage with a double use of a volleyball court. Also on a small budget. Was thinking about army surplus netting. Any thoughts from the experts for a struggling non-profit building a community park after a fire disaster?

    1. Thank you for writing Kris! Sounds like a great project you are working on! To contain baseballs you will need to utilize a netting that has a mesh size of 1-3/4″ – which will also be a good selection to block/contain larger objects like volleyballs as well. If you were only working with the volleyballs you could use a larger mesh size like 4″ for the netting – however a larger mesh such as 4″ will be too large to block baseballs, so for multipurpose application you should stick with the 1-3/4″ mesh size to function correctly. If you opt to try and use something like some surplus netting material that you may have on hand or have access to, just verify that the mesh of it will be at the 1-3/4″ sizing in that case. From Gourock’s product line we have 1-3/4″ mesh size nylon netting that is available in very lightweight twine thickness (#12), a mid-weight twine thickness (#21), a more robust twine (#36), and then a very thick/heavy twine (#72). The thinner the twine the lower the overall pricing – but also the lighter the netting and overall abrasion durability. Something very lightweight like #12 is great for volleyball – but is not that popular for baseball batting uses. Generally speaking, the sports facilities we supply netting to that are doing multiport containment and impact will opt for the #21 X 1-3/4″ or #36 X 1-3/4″ in most cases. Our to your budgetary considerations, leaning towards a netting solution that is like the #21 X 1-3/4″ twisted-knotted nylon netting is probably the sweet spot for function, price, and overall value: https://www.gourock.com/KNN21175.html Gourock has nets built per-order according to any dimensions that are requested by our customers, and they can be finished with a rope bordered perimeter edging – or supplied just as bulk/cut pieces of mesh. The rope bordered nets are the most finished product and will have the higher pricing – whereas the cut sections of bulk netting/mesh will have lower pricing but be less user-friendly to work with (since there is no finishing edge installed). But no matter what, right through our online store you have immediate access to price out and order any sort of option and sizing preferred – so hopefully it helps you out with your research into your project!
