All of our netting products are manufactured to specific quality standards:
Limited Warranties vary between 3-5 years, dependent on the product
One reason Tennis Net is braided NOT twisted is, so the ball drops down closer to the net when the ball hits. A twisted net would create more bounce.
You can get either single braided or double braided. With single braided it works better for a private court, like one you might have at your home. A double braided tennis net is doubled up on the top 6 rows of the net; the spot most often hit by the ball. This is better for high usage nets. It creates a stronger net that will last longer under higher use conditions.
The purpose of a tapered tennis net is to prolong the life of the product. This is accomplished by cutting the net in a way so that it is 42” at the posts, but tapers down to 36”in the middle. The taper cut minimizes how much of the bottom rubs against the court along its center. This helps prevent wear on the bottom allowing the tennis net to remain playable longer.
