DOUGLAS PREMIER PPS-22SQ PORTABLE PICKLEBALL NET SYSTEM
The Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System is the closest you can get to a permanent net’s durability and quality without having to deal with the expense of drilling and pouring concrete. It was developed for use at the beautiful Indian Wells Tennis Garden for the 2018 USA Pickleball National Championships. This net is a great option for clubs that already have courts for other sports like tennis and want to add pickleball to their offerings. This system is easy to assemble and uses an internally wound gear mechanism to lock each piece into place. The posts are 3” wide and made with an 11-gauge stainless steel finished with a polyester powder coat to help resist rust.
These portable pickleball systems raise the bar and are the gold standard when permanent installation is not desired for either indoor or outdoor court applications. Portable PPS-SQ systems are easy-to-assemble and offer the same long-lasting features as the classic Premier™ SQ tennis post. The 3” square post is constructed from heavy-duty 11-gauge steel. This portable system is supported by unique flat stabilizer legs that offer a greater range of play and increases player safety. Post is internally wound and features a self-locking gear mechanism. Gears are constructed of plated steel and the small gear is case hardened. Gear housings and caps are made of cast aluminum alloy. Gear function is 30:1 to ensure a smooth, easy operation. Systems are finished with black baked-on polyester powder coat to resist rust and increase durability. Heavy-duty base frame is also constructed of 11-gauge 3” square steel and 3-1/2” square 3/16” heavy-wall steel. Net easily attaches with the top cable and to an eye-bolt on the base frame; no lacing rods are needed. Systems are complete with the PN-30 Pickleball net and a velcro center strap. Flush mounted gear plate cover and removable handle are chrome plated. The end wheel assembly features heavy-duty non-scuff swivel casters that allow for smooth and easy mobility. Lift assist handles are included and allow to easily lift each post end to flip the transporter bracket up and out of the way while unit is in play.
Top players note that the Douglas Net appears and performs like a permanent net system. The rigidity of the net structure supports the heavy-duty net cable that can be tightened to an equivalent tension to a permanent net system. This tension, combined with the mass of the steel net cable and heavy-duty netting and top strap, result in balls tipping off the top net-cord in the same way they do on permanent nets. Net-cord tension on typical portable pickleball nets is under 20 pounds. Net-cord tension on the Douglas Premier Pickleball Net System is closer to true permanent net tension of 400-500 pounds.
At 215 lbs the Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System has considerable heft, but thanks to the end wheel assembly you can maneuver it around your court as needed. The Net System sits on its frame structure. The net's weight is distributed over 360 square inches. It never exerts more than 1 PSI on the court surface. It can be used on both indoor and outdoor surfaces and is weather treated for year-round use, however we recommend you store it indoors during off season for a prolonged life. Stabilizer legs on both sides of the net improve safety for players. The net comes with a Velcro center strap to meet the 34” center height regulation. This product has a warranty of 1 year for the net frame and 4 years for the net.
The Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Portable Pickleball Net System is a highly sturdy and well-made system that will last as well as most permanent nets with proper care.
