How to Install a Tennis Net Post

Tennis Post Installation Guide

1. When installing posts, make sure they will rest no higher than 1” above the net cord, at a height of about 3’- 6” above the court surface. The footings should be a minimum of 3’- 6” below surface or to the frost depth of your area. (See diagram)

2. Place footings so that the center line of the posts will be 3’ outside the court on each side.

3. The center lines of posts should be positioned 42’ apart for Doubles court and 33’ apart for Singles court. Post sleeves are recommended because they allow easy removal of the posts for resurfacing, maintenance, post repair/replacement, and alternate uses of the court.

4. During the off season or when winterizing, it is best to remove the net posts and plug the sleeves with sleeve covers to prevent moisture and dirt from falling in.
