The Champion Sports Tournament Pickleball Net is compatible with any permanent, in-ground posts. Although this net is made with the highest quality materials, it can get damaged if left outside for extended periods of time. This net is comprised of intertwining black 3-millimeter braids of polyethylene to create the net itself. The top ridge of the net is hugged by a pure white 23-ounce vinyl headband, which protects the integrity of the net. A 27-foot long cable runs inside of this band, and neatly attaches to any post. There are approximately 30” of cable on either side of the net outside of the headband. A 1/2” diameter fiberglass dowel slides through pockets on the two sides of the net to maintain its shape.
