Portable Net Update from the USAPA

There has been a delay while we are requesting some design improvements.
We placed an initial order for 100 units and those sold out quickly. While those nets are are the best solution for a lightweight, inexpensive portable net for pickleball that we have seen, we still think that the design could be improved. We have been negotiating those improvements with the factory since the beginning of the year. It has been a struggle with some delay of getting the improvements through the engineers at the factory. We are now very close and expect to have a sample within ten days.Once the order is placed, it takes about 3 months for production and shipping from Taiwan.We regret the delay, but think that we will all be better off in the long run with the improvements.

If you have an immediate need, you might prefer one of the solutions in this link:http://usapa.org/construction/portable_netstands.html

If you think that you will still be needing portable nets on the above schedule, please reply with an estimate of the number of units. It is not a commitment on your part, just something to help us estimate future requirements.

Thank you,
Bill BoothPresident, USAPA
