The Wilson Pickleball Net is the only pickleball net that works with the Wilson Pickleball Posts. This net has specially-designed hooks that are compatible with the unique crank system found only on the Wilson Posts. This net is meant for use with permanent, in-ground posts. The heavy-duty material promises to stand the test of time. However, while this net is made from resilient products, it can get damaged if introduced to extreme weather conditions or left outside for extended periods of time.
The Wilson Net is comprised of intertwining black 3-millimeter braids of polyethylene which create the net itself. This is an extremely tough material. The top ridge of the net is hugged by a pure white 23-ounce vinyl headband, which protects the integrity of the net. A 27-foot long cable runs inside of this band, and neatly attaches to the Wilson Poles. There is approximately 32” of cable on either side of the net outside of the headband. A 1/2” diameter fiberglass dowel slides through pockets on the two sides of the net to maintain its shape.
The Wilson Pickleball Net is the official pickleball net size of 22 feet long and 36 inches high. For additional tips on installation, see the technical specifications tab and the video tab below.

Here is a transcript of the video:
Hi David Johnson with Pickleball Central talking today about how to set up Wilson posts and the Wilson net for pickleball. We have two different types of Wilson nets, the standard and the heavy-duty. They both basically go together the same way. You want to place your posts approximately 22 feet, 4 inches apart the center of your pickleball court. They typically get put into a plastic PVC sleeve that is put two feet into the ground. The pin will actually keep the post when you slide it in at the correct height so that it’s 36 inches at the top. And so your post will go into the sleeve and the pin will stop it at the correct place. Both posts have a pin like this.
So when your posts are embedded in the ground and you’re ready to put the net on, you have the wire cable that goes through the net and it has a loop at both ends. So one loop on the net is going to go over your cleat on the cleat side of the post. And then the cable will run up over the pulley at the top of the post. And that will run you down to the other side of the net then. And down here on the crank there is a pin on the inside of the crank and the other end of the net with the loop on it will go into and around the pin and that’s what going to allow you when you tighten up over the pulley on this end allows you when you tighten up over the pulley on this end allows you to tighten the net. By the way, we’re doing this indoors and so we’ve just rigged this up. And you tighten it up until the net at the center of the court is at 34 inches. If the center’s at 34 inches, it should be 36 inches out here at the post, and you basically have the net at the correct height.
The final component of putting the net in, is each Wilson net comes with two rods, and the rod goes into the end sleeve on both ends of the net and it’s just the right length. And then there’s a lacing technique that you will use to lace up the net to the post. I’m not going to show that in this video, but a diagram of that will be available on the website. And your lacing is going to go through the grommets here at the top and on the side and so you’re going to have a good lacing at the top to help hold it and then you will lace down through the four different grommets and that’s going to bring it up nice and tight to the edge of the post. And you will have a net that looks good and is ready to play pickleball. Thank you.
