Field Netting

We suggest a minimum 40% netting for the bottom 3m of the field and 20% netting for the top 3m of the field barrier netting around the playing field.

International regulation suggests a 6m internal boundary before the play area, or alternatively tests must be done on the nets before using it.

SANPA has tested various netting according to the ASTM standards.

SANPA do however suggest a inside boundary of at least 2-3m and that netting be tested on a monthly basis for safety.
