Douglas Premier PPS-22SQ Heavy Duty Portable Pickleball Net SystemThe 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.
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.

We waited 12 weeks for our net to come. The first day our league played it was such a difference. When the ball hits the net who knows where it will land. Thank you for making the game more of a challenge. If your wondering if it is worth the money...IT IS!

This system is the real deal!!!
Mar 16, 2022
This is an excellent portable Pickleball net system. Even though it arrived on a 200+ pound pallet in 7 boxes, it was easily assembled in less than 30 minutes. It is made of high quality steel that is powder coated glossy black. It is as sturdy as any permanent system I seen. We use it on a private indoor court. We couldn't be any happier with the system.

It is exactly what we needed.
Great customer service and excellent product
Mar 1, 2022
Extremely pleased with the quick response from staff whenever I had questions about my purchase. They did everything they said they would do within just a few minutes. Even when my nets were sitting in a warehouse less than 15 minutes from me for over a week, they made a call within 15 minutes of my email and the shipping company called me and delivered my nets the next day. Great service.
Nets Look great & Heavy Duty as they appear
Dec 13, 2021
We recently received our nets and have already put them to use. The early reviews are in and our PB community loves them. They look great and amp up the overall PB presentation. Shipping took a while, but PBCentral was up front with the estimated shipping time and actual time turned out to be super close. Overall, very pleased with this purchase
Douglas nets are terrific!
Jun 10, 2021
Our club loves the Douglas nets. So much better than regular portable nets that sag, fray, and break. These are sturdy and very well made.

Excellent net. Heavy duty. Great performance. As close to a permanent net with posts as you can get, although this may be a better option, as it is easily portable with the attached wheels. Assembly should take two adult males about an hour to fully complete...or just 45 minutes for my wife to assemble!
The feet keep falling off
Aug 20, 2020
We have had one of these nets on my neighborhood's courts for over a year now, and the feet keep falling off. This seems like a design flaw. If the feet would just stay on, I'd give it 5 stars.
