Why you need a pickleball net on wheels for your games

Is there any other way? Spend more time on the game!

Pickleball is a fun and exciting game that can be played indoors or outdoors.

There’s a catch:

Finding a good place to play can sometimes be a challenge. And you know this.

Tennis courts are either being converted altogether to pickleball courts or simply placed over tennis court – these are called mixed-use or multipurpose courts.

Either one of these requires portable pickleball nets. Actually, that’s not true: if one pickleball court is placed on a tennis court, then the tennis net can be used for pickleball play. Not ideal but it works.

Portable pickleball nets

If you use a multipurpose court (i.e., used for tennis and pickleball) you may need to bring your own net!

Yes, it’s true.

With so many cities and towns having limited budgets, if they provide a court (half-ass court, that it is) then they may ask you to supply the net. It’s actually more common than you’d think.

Be that as it may, how do you go about thinking of buying a temporary/portable pickleball net set?

On the the biggest factors you will need to consider is whether the pickleball net is on wheels or you need to drag it across the court – this goes for indoor and out door pickleball courts.

We’re not shy on dispensing our opinion – you need a pickleball net with wheels.

What to look out for when considering a wheeled pickleball net

  • Look for nets that have rustproof and high-quality poles. The poles can be made from metal, alloy, or carbon fiber. Stay clear of the inexpensive aluminum poles, as they come with a shorter lifespan.
  • Metal poles should be powder coated in order to prevent moisture from penetrating through them.
  • Standard but make sure the net is 34″ high in the center and 36″ at the posts which is (are?) the rules.
  • Look for a support in the center of the net to make sure it is always at the required 34″.
  • Wheels? That’s why we’re here: only consider industrial quality wheels that can take the stress of moving them across the court.
  • Some wheels leak! Ask and get the answers. Will they leak and stain the court?
  • Don’t compromise on cost as you will get your money’s worth; you do not want to replace these nets every year!
