The Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System was developed for the 2018 USA National Pickleball Championships at Indian Wells Tennis Garden. It is the closest you can get to a permanent net’s durability and quality without having to deal with the expense of pouring concrete and drilling hole for permanent net posts. This net is a great option for clubs that use their courts for tennis and pickleball. Facilities with multi sport surfaces should give serious consideration to this portable net system. The Douglas Net is easy to assemble and uses an internally wound gear mechanism to lock each piece into place. The posts are 3” wide and made with an 11-gauge stainless steel finished with a polyester powder coat to help resist rust.
The Douglas Net appears and performs like a permanent net system. The rigidity of the heavy duty net structure supports the net cable that runs across the top of the net encased in the top tape. This cable can be tightened to an equivalent tension to a permanent net system. This tension, combined with the mass of the steel net cable and heavy-duty netting and top strap, result in balls tipping off the top net-cord in the same way they do on permanent nets. Net-cord tension on typical portable pickleball nets is under 20 pounds. Net-cord tension on the Douglas Premier Pickleball Net System is closer to true permanent net tension of 400-500 pounds!
At 215 lbs the Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System has considerable heft, but thanks to the end wheel assembly, one person can easily roll it around the court. The Net System sits on its frame structure. The net's weight is distributed over 360 square inches. It never exerts more than 1 PSI on the court surface.
Douglas Lift Assist Handles (qty 2) are included with your purchase, and are also available as an optional accessory if you purchased your net before Douglas started including them. Please click here to purchase Douglas Lift Assist Handles separately.
The net can be used on both indoor and outdoor court surfaces and is weather treated for year-round use. We recommend you store it indoors during off season for a prolonged life. Stabilizer legs on both sides of the net improve safety for players. The net comes with a Velcro center strap to meet the 34” center height regulation for pickleball. This product has a warranty of 1 year for the net frame and 4 years for the net.
The Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System is a sturdy and well-made system that will, with proper care, last similar to permanent nets.
