Custom Batting Cage Nets – projects for Fall 2014

As the cold weather months approach us, Practice Sports is heating up with custom netting projects.

We are building new batting cage nets & tunnels for commercial training facilities and home-owners everyday. Some of our recent projects are outlined below to give a sampling on the type of custom netting work we do.

Custom Batting Cage Net — Pittsburgh, PA

A coach in PA recently ordered a double-wide batting cage net to use this winter for his players. He is installing this in a pole barn, using our Curtaincage sliding batting cage kits.

The cage is 55’L x 28’W x 14’W with a sliding curtain, to create 2 lanes at 55′ x 14′ or a giant area of 55′ x 28′ when only a few players are working out. A large ShellCage like this gives a lot of flexibility to create unique practice environments, replicating more of a true game experience without the confined “tunnel effect”.

Ceiling & Wall Perimeter Barrier Netting — Chicago, IL

We are designing several barrier netting panels for a client in Chicago, to protect his walls & lights for an indoor soccer facility. A panel system makes installation less cumbersome, and future maintenance easier.

Custom nets — Sacramento, CA

A facility owner in Sacramento is hiring our installation team to build & install several tunnels in his commercial training facility. The cages will include sliding curtains, and bottom anchor cables to keep the netting walls clean and the base in place. We are designing several custom ceiling brackets to adapt to his tricky ceiling structure, ensuring the cable lines can handle maximum tension resulting in a clean net ceiling with mnimal sag. The anchor points & turnbuckles make all the difference in a cages “playable area”. Weak terminal points equals sloped lines, which means saggy nets and an obstructed environment.

When netting sags it can inhibit the back-swing of a batter, not to mention knock the ball down prematurely preventing ball flight tracking. Maximum ball flight is important for coaches to provide feedback to players, helping to identify weaknesses such as the tendency to pull a ball foul or swing under the ball instead of driving it.
