This is much better than our old badminton net. The wire is thicker, with vinyl edges on all sides. I'll buy this again. This is also a real badminton net, because the holes in the net are very small, so badminton will not be caught.
This is very easy to set / remove, and so on. It only takes five minutes from out of the box to the courtyard. The only thing to note is that you will want to add some weight at both ends (just one brick on each side). The setup is so simple that my daughter (11y) can now take it down and put it back when she doesn't need it. Highly recommended.
What cool equipment! It's really easy to assemble, especially for two people. The cool part is that it can be like a tennis net or higher badminton. So my youngest son can play lower & feeling like he's part of the fun. When it is in the bag, it is very light, so it is easy to carry for those who want to take it to the park or beach. We used it in the backyard for a few hours. Nice purchase!
My daughter is disappointed that the net is so low. I went to the hardware store and got a 74-inch PVC cut, and they slid onto the pole and the net onto the PVC. This makes the mesh want to pull toward the center, but I just tie the knot and nail the pole to the stake, which is good. It is still easier to set than many other options.
I bought this net to play badminton (doubles) with my parents, my husband and myself. My dad ordered another (more expensive and better rated) website from Amazon, and since we tend to be just a little competitive, I want to find an equally good web at a better price. I can easily say that he did better this time. The price of this net is OK, but it does look a little fragile. It is about 3 pounds lighter than my father, but the setting is the same. Mine also brought ropes and stakes, which is good, but it makes me feel that manufacturers are not super confident about their strength. We don't need piles, because we use them on concrete mats, so I can't say how it stands on the grass with or without piles. The frame is what looks like a fragile part, but the web is the equivalent of my dad. The net did fuse in some places, and I cut it with a pair of scissors. Foam blocks or wheels help keep the net standing and keep the blocks together when the storage is soft and easily deformed. This bag is so cheap that the rope zipper button is broken after one use. Overall, if you only use it here and there, it's not a bad net, but if you're serious, spend an extra 20 pounds to get the highest rating on Amazon.
Easy to setup, needs floats in the middle for pool volleyball net
It is easy to install and fail. I bought it to play swimming pool volleyball, and the bar in the middle drooped up and down in the 15-foot swimming pool. I bought a thick pool surface, cut it in the middle, and attached a zipper, which seemed to help. I know it's used to build lawns, but if your pool is narrow enough, the tripod bracket is very stable. It only took me a week, but it seemed to hold up well in the rain and humidity in Florida, without rust!
