Here is a list of our best-selling product categories with a few ‘need-to-know’ facts you might want to consider before you buy.
Tennis net and net components are exposed to sunlight for up to 1,200 hours per year. Balls hit the net at a speed of up to 200 km/h. The net headband has to withstand hard hits and grazing shots every day, all while the net is permanently under tension. Weaknesses of an inferior net will show up quickly, often during the first season.
Our tennis nets last for many years. Our best net the ‘CLUB
’, comes with a 5 year warranty - the only net in the UK market with such a quality seal!
Tennis Net Posts
Tennis net posts must withstand enormous force from the tension wire and the suspended net. A strong ground foundation is essential to ensure lasting stability of a net post. And a set of quality tennis net posts is just as important. Posts should be made from either galvanised steel or aluminium. Because the aluminium posts are rust-free, and much lighter, many consider them to be superior.
The net post winder mechanism is another important element to consider when purchasing posts.
External winder tension mechanisms can be a hazard to players and should no longer be installed. Internal winder systems can come with fixed or removable external handle. But a protruding crank handle can be tempting for children, vandals and passer-bys. The latest net posts are designed with an internal winder mechanism that is operated with an internal crank system hidden inside the post.

Clay Courts: drag mats, drag brooms, the Cleansweep
The popularity of artificial clay court surface has been growing in recent years. These surfaces need less maintenance than real clay courts and are wonderful to play on. But some maintenance is still essential to extend the lifespan of an artificial clay surface.
Re-distributing the clay with a drag mat after play is a vital task. And keeping the court clear of leaves and debris with a rubber rake is just as important to avoid rot and algae growth. Infill material must be topped up and re-distributed with a drag broom and lines need to be cleared with a line brush.
As a clay court specialist, we offer all the clay court maintenance equipment you need.
You might even want to consider the Cleansweep
. A patented drag mat that doubles up as a leaf sweeper and is suitable for all court surfaces, including hard courts and grass.
Tennis windbreaks or privacy netting
Tennis windbreaks are a means to advertise your sponsor and personalise your club, and they also serve a very practical purpose. As the name suggests, they reduce wind influences and screen the court for player privacy.
An effective windbreak should be at least 2m high. We recommend the background colour to be a solid, dark shade. The tennis ball should stand out against this backdrop. Any custom print design and colour should take this into consideration.
To help with the cost of windbreaks, clubs like to get a local sponsor for a custom printed windbreak. Custom windbreaks can come in a range of colours, and virtually any size, but there are certain points to consider. Please read our Windbreak Buying Tips
before you go overboard with a custom order that you might regret.
Tennis court divider netting
Divider nettings are traditionally installed at indoor venues. However, because of Covid-19 and social distancing rules
, they are now experiencing a surge in popularity for outdoor tennis courts.
Whether you consider divider netting for indoors or outdoors, they are a much-valued upgrade at any club. They help players focus on their own game and are an important safety feature.
But before you order, make sure you have the right divider netting for your purpose. Read our article The Divider Netting
