When building your court, you will need to install sleeves for your net posts. These sleeves are pre-prepared, cut to the correct length (500mm long) with hinged end caps for covering the holes when the net posts are not installed. Unlike our standard sleeve kit, these hinged end caps need to be built into the court and cannot be removed, with the hinged cap sitting flush with court surface level for an even finish.
The sleeves have an internal diameter of 104mm, suitable for standard sized square posts (75mm x 75mm) with a diagonal measurement of 102mm (leaving 2mm of play).
When installing the net posts, they will come with a "collar" which sits over the sleeve (the collar is supplied with the net posts, not this sleeve kit, as the collar will be specific for your net posts). The collar will have an opening suitable for the net post to be inserted into. It will slide into the collar until it reaches the correct height, where it will automatically rest.
The net can swivel in the sleeve and should face the opposite side of the court. Once the net is installed, the force of the net pulling on the post will lock the post in place. Note, due to the 2mm of play inside the sleeve (1mm each side), the post can appear to pull inwards slightly. Court builders often angle the sleeves outwards very slightly during installation to counter this issue.
These sleeves should be installed 12,800mm apart (from the centres) for a standard court.
