Outdoor badminton is a fun activity to do with friends and family. It can be played on the beach, in your backyard, or even on an open field. Setting up the net might seem like it’s complicated but it’s actually pretty easy! This blog post will teach you step by step how to set up an outdoor badminton net so you can get started playing right away.
How To Set Up Outdoor Badminton Net
Step 1. Finding a flat surface, 100 foot by 20 foot is best, but most people just use their yard.
Step 2. Take two 10ft pieces of PVC pipe and make sure they are the same height as the net you will be using (this is usually 8ft or 5ft). You can get like 10 of these at Home Depot for about $10
Step 3. Put one PVC pipe in each corner of where you want the net to be.
Step 4. Take some string or rope and tie it around both lengths of the pipe until there is no slack left when pulled tight from opposite corners.
Step 5. Use an electric drill with a hole saw attachment to create holes in each side of the PVC pipe at ground level for stakes if desired, and put some stakes in the holes on each side of the net until they are securely held.
Here Are Some Questions You Might Have:
Q: What is the best way to anchor the net?
Ans: You can either use stakes to hold the net in place, or you can use sandbags. If you are using sandbags, make sure to place them on each side of the net so it is evenly weighted down.
Q: What is the best net to purchase?
Ans: There are a few different companies that make outdoor badminton nets. A good one to start with is the Badminton set HERE. It comes with almost everything you need, including the net, poles, and stakes. You can also purchase nets separately if you want something a little different.
Q: How do I know what height to set my net at?
Ans: Most nets are either 8ft or 5ft in height. You can either set it at the 8ft height or use the adjustable height poles to make it 5ft.
Q: What type of surface should I use for my badminton net?
Ans: A good surface to use is a grassy area, as this will give you the most consistent bounce on the shuttlecocks. If you want to use concrete, it’s best to place some plywood down first for a flat surface.
Q: How long does the net last?
Ans: The badminton set that comes with everything should last around 5-10 years depending on how often you play and if you leave it outside during the winter months.
Q: How far apart should the poles be?
Ans: Place one pole of each side around 8ft-10ft apart. You can also use adjustable height poles for this so you don’t have to find two trees with a 10ft gap between them.
Q: What is the diameter of the frame?
Ans: The frame is 3 inches which hold the net to the poles just fine.
Q: Do we need a rain protector for a badminton net?
Ans: No, it won’t be necessary because it is made of nylon and doesn’t mind a bit of weather.
Q: Is this sturdy enough for kids?
It is very sturdy and can stand up to kids playing, but it is always recommended that an adult is present when children are playing.
Q: Is there any way to make this portable?
You could put wheels on the bottom of the poles. It does come with stakes for anchoring (if needed).
When choosing a badminton net, you want to make sure that it is of good quality. Not all nets are created equal, and there are a few things you should look for when purchasing one. The first thing to consider is the material the net is made from. The back of the net should be made from a durable mesh material that won’t fray or get holes easily. You also want to make sure it is attached tightly to the actual frame without any slack in between.
