If you are the athletic type and have a good amount of property at your home, you may have opted to have a tennis court installed. This is a great way for you, your family and friends to get regular exercise. However, with time and a lot of use, it is possible to run into problems with your court. This can of course include issues with your tennis net, which can become worn and broken over time. You can either replace the net itself or simply repair it. If you are a good troubleshooter who has do-it-yourself skills, you should be able to tackle this issue.
Fixing a tennis net is basically pretty easy to do. If there are only a minor few pieces in the net that are torn, you can use plastic or electrical tape to seal the broken fragments together. This is a temporary fix that can last for some time as long as the adhesive stays intact, though over time and with varying weather conditions, especially in rain, snow or excessive humidity, can come loose.
Another solution is to use an awl or leather punch. Take these materials and make holes in it that match those in the net itself, and then you can attempt to affix it in place of the broken pieces of netting. Or, you can use an old racket string or that material which is left over from rackets when they are restrung. You will have to lace this material through the holes in the tennis net. Make sure to first pull the cording into the space in the plastic tape on the netting so that the racket net portion can catch it and hold onto it. If the color of both nettings match, the fact that the tennis net is broken will not even show.
Of course, you can always improvise on this problem with other materials as well. For instance, old pieces of pantyhose and stockings may work well to repair your tennis net, as these are made from nylon and can easily be wound around the broken pieces of the net. If you cut the pieces narrowly enough, they can easily be tied around the net and fixed into place so that you can continue to use it. The usage of adhesive tape can help greatly for this method. Your tennis net will probably look a bit funny, but it should prove to be a good way to temporarily repair it.
As a last resort, you will probably want to have a professional repair your tennis net so that it can be restored to its original condition, or have it replaced altogether. This will be especially useful if the tear in the net is quite large, or if it has increased over time and continued usage after your makeshift repair efforts.
Consider talking to someone at your local home improvement or sporting goods store, or check your owner's manual that came with the tennis net. Your best bet will probably be to contact the manufacturer of the net. They may make the repairs if you send the net back to them at a moderate price. Otherwise, you can probably expect to get a whole new tennis net as a replacement if it cannot be repaired, again at a cost.
