Tennis Net Post Installation:
1. When installed, the top of each net post shall not be greater than 3'6" above the court surface. The concrete footings (base) should be a minimum of 3'6" below the court surface and/or definitely 1' below local frost depth. See adjacent diagram.
2. The center line distance between posts should be 42'0" for doubles courts and 33'0" for singles courts. Post sleeves are recommended because they allow easy removal of the posts for resurfacing, maintenance, post repair and/or replacement, and alternate uses of the court.
3. During the off season or when winterizing, it is best to remove the net posts and cover the ground sleeves with the proper fitting caps to prevent leaves, dirt or debris from falling into the sleeves.
Note: It is important to be sure that the posts are centered to the court and at 90 degrees to the side fence lines. Be sure to use a 4' long level when setting the sleeves in the concrete. If the sleeves are not installed straight and true, the posts will be leaning when installed.
