sportsequip.co.uk sells the widest range of Tennis Nets available in the UK, including types used at major events such as Wimbledon, The Olympics, the US Open and many other ATP & WTA events.
You can choose a headband made from traditional cream 'canvas', white spun polyester or vinyl coated fabric. All 3 types come sewn to a range of nets, made from 2.2mm to 3.5mm twisted or braided netting, with either 2 or 4 rows of stitching.
All our tennis nets come with an integral plastic coated steel headline wire, with a loop one end and a pin the other, for fixing to the most common type of UK tennis posts. Singles tennis nets, a made-to-measure custom net service and double loop headlines are all also available.
The two main decisions to make when choosing a new tennis net are the headband type and the net thickness. In addition you then also need to decide whether you also want the extra strip of netting along the top of the net - Double Netting Top, more of which below.
Headbands (the white band that runs across the top of the length of the net) are available in either a traditional cream / white 'canvas' type material or a wipe clean vinyl material. Each has their own benefits, such as aesthetics, maintenance or durability. Find out more on our net buying guide.
Netting thicknesses - Tennis nets are manufactured in a choice of thicknesses, 2.5mm and 3.5mm. In simple terms the thicker the netting, the more durable the net. Some tennis nets come with the standard two rows, or double stitching along the headband, some offer the alternative and stronger four rows - quad stitching, and these are best for heavily used courts, further increasing durability of the net.

Over time some nets fail because the stitching holding the net to the headband deteriorates. In most cases the whole net is tired and ready for replacement, but it can be frustrating if the netting is otherwise in good condition. This is the time to consider a 'quad stitched' replacement.
Another option to consider is the Double Netting Top, a double layer of netting covering the top six rows of mesh on the tennis net. Whilst less commonly seen in the UK, this type of net is extremely popular in the USA in particular. It reinforces the area of the net most likely to be struck by the ball during competitive play, especially when serving. The double layer of netting helps provide extra durability to the net and can extend its lifespan.
We understand that buying a new tennis net can be complicated!
