Tennis posts play an important role in holding and maintaining the weight and height of a tennis net. The repetitive abuse of fast balls, wind, rain and players yanking on the net over time, makes the two pillars as important as ever. There are two categories of posts; external wind where the winding mechanism is on the outside of the post and the internal wind that has its mechanism on the inside. There is also two different types of tennis posts; round and square.
