Tennis Nets

Tennis Nets


sportsequip.co.uk supply the UK's most extensive range of standard 42' doubles tennis nets, including types as used at major events such as Wimbledon, The Olympics, the US Open and many other ATP and WTA events.


All of our tennis nets are supplied complete with an integral plastic coated steel headline wire with loop and pin ends for fixing to an anchor post and into a British winder mechanism.


Singles tennis nets, a made-to-measure custom net service and double loop headlines are all also available.


Choosing the right tennis net

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.


Contact our sales office for further details on 01858 545789.


Headband Options

  • Canvas headbands - Traditional cream coloured headbands (actually continuous filament polyester)
  • Polyester headbands - Canvas style whitespun polyester headbands
  • Vinyl headbands - Wipe clean, durable whitevinyl coated fabric headbands

Headband Stitching Options

Over time many tennis nets fail because the stitching holding the net to the headband breaks. In most cases the whole net is tired and ready for replacement, but if this is all that has happened, it is frustrating to feel that the net is otherwise ok and it should have lasted longer. This is the time to consider a 'quad stitch' replacement.


  • Standard double stitching - Two lines of stitching along the length of the headband to hold the net. For domestic and lower use tennis courts.
  • Quad stitching - 4 lines of stitching. Only 1 line is required to hold the net in place so having a quad stitch net offers maximum life expectancy. Recommended for clubs, schools and all heavily used tennis courts.

Double Netting Top

A double layer of netting, covering the top six rows of mesh on the tennis net. Although mainly cosmetic, this is the area 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 ultimately helps extend its lifespan.


Netting Options

  • 2.5mm twisted - low cost entry level tennis nets for low use domestic and public courts. Our most basic 'Club' nets come without an edge reinforcement tape. Instead Club nets have a simple selvedged edge - a thicker woven edge designed to reduce fraying. Our Matchplay nets though have the much more durable black vintl coated fabric tape edges to the sides and bottom edge.
  • 3.5mm braided - The best weight and all quality tennis nets use this stronger interwoven polyethylene fibre. All come with edge tapes. As used at Wimbledon.

Other Available Options

  • Singles tennis nets - 33' long nets, available off the shelf.
  • Special length tennis nets - we can make any non-standard length to order, up to around 42' 9".
  • Double loop headlines - These fit continental manufactured tennis posts, not common in the UK, so made to order only.
