How To Decide on Temporary or Permanent Netting

Author : Jon Moriarty | Published On : 13 May 2022

Are you considering upgrading or making a change to your sports facility and its sports netting ahead of the spring sports season? If you’re not sure where to start with sports netting, our experts at Safe Sport Net can share their insight from more than 20 years in the industry.

We’ll start with one of the first questions you’ll need to answer when considering a new sports netting system: will this be a temporary, moveable netting system, something permanent, or a combination system that combines permanent structures with temporary or portable netting?

Permanent Netting

Permanent netting structures are ideal for barrier netting systems. These are most commonly found in sports like baseball, soccer, field hockey and other field sports. Beginning around 15’ high, permanent netting solutions help protect athletes, coaches and spectators from errant balls during competition and practice. Driving ranges on golf courses also benefit from permanent, tall netting structures to protect roadways, residential areas, and nearby businesses from stray golf balls.


Temporary sports netting solutions can include portable baseball and softball backstop netting, as well as lightweight, moveable lacrosse goals. These netting systems won’t protect entire bleacher sections but are most useful for specific drills in practice.

Combination Netting Systems

Combine the best of both systems to make practices more efficient and keep fans and coaches safe during games. Ranging from temporary netting systems with permanent infrastructure like football field goal nets to perimeter netting and batting cages, our experts at Safe Sport Net can design custom sports netting solutions for whatever your facility needs.
