Tunnel for Residential Use

I am thinking of putting a batting cage in my basement for my two children and I was trying to find out some pricing information. I have a limited space to work with and a low ceiling. A rough estimate of the dimensions are as follows: 6.5′ high, 10′ wide, 30′ long. I was interested in the curtain cage concept so that I could slide the net out of the way when it is not in use. I am currently planning on only using plastic balls so the net would not have to be super heavy duty. Also the net might need to be small enough to be used with the small golf ball sized plastic balls used in some pitching matches. If you could provide some type of estimate based on those dimensions and details, I would greatly appreciate it. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Thanks for inquiring about our netting. You will need about 6″ to 1′ of space between the net and the ceiling and walls. So if your ceiling is 6.5′H the net will need to be at least 6″ below it along with 1′ of sag on the ground so the total height should be about 7′. Please confirm that this would be sufficient space for the net (the dimensions would be 30′L x 10′W x 7′H). Also how old are your children and please provide the zip code where the net would be shipping.

Thanks again,
Cory

Cory,
Thank you for the quick reply. I think the 7′ would be sufficient. My children are 9 and 6 and the ship to zip code would be 43026. If you need any additional information please let me know.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
In order for the net to slide like a curtain, it needs to be run on cable lines (3 for your width). The cables would run parallel with the length of the net so please let me know the distance from wall to wall and the types of walls you have (cinder block, drywall with studs). If it is a drywall you most likely would need to place some wood headers between the studs since the studs would not line up with the cable lines.

Thanks,
Cory

Cory,

The distance from wall to wall is actually only 28′. Apparently I was off a little in my original estimation. One wall is cinder block and the other wall is exposed studs, so it shouldn’t be a problem to put wood headers in there.

Thanks,
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
Do you think you’d be able to provide a sketch of the building? I should be able to get you some initial pricing.

Thanks,
Cory
