Factors to consider when using a portable pickleball net

If you are in the market for a tournament net, look for a durable study netting system that is standard regulation size.  Maybe it is just a recreational net you seek and price and easy setup are most important. One thought you might give if you have plenty of space are nets on wheels that can be rolled off the surface when not in play, without having to be taken down.

Bear in mind that weight will be important in your purchase, especially if frequent transportation will be a feature of your net use.  Most all truly portable pickleball nets will come with a carrying bag with straps or wheels.

IFP and USA Pickleball Regulations for Tournament-Approved Nets

The guidelines of USA Pickleball and the International Federation of Pickleball say regulations nets are 22 feet and 36 inches high at the sidelines and in the center they are 34 inches.  The extra two feet extend past a regulation court’s width of 20 feet by a foot on each side, past the sidelines.
