DIY backyard hitting net plans

That's what I'm going to use.  Might be an issue the further away from the net you go, but otherwise should be OK.  It's not that expensive if it has to be replaced.  

I would much rather be on the course but that doesn't look promising anytime soon.. I'll have it up this weekend and will Post pictures..

Progress so far. Canopy is the only thing left.

I will make a suggestion for anyone trying this, don’t do in during social distancing. Doing this by myself is almost past my limit. I’m going to get done and be too sore to hit balls.

Well the PVC tubing was a bust. At 10X10X10 the tubing bowed not just the top horizontal tubes the vertical tube also bowed under the weight. Causing the whole thing to tilt off to one side. That was in dry conditions with no wind. I was afraid that once the netting got wet that the whole thing would collapse.. So back in the box it went. I'll have to figure out something sturdier that won't break the bank..

If the 10 footers are too long you may be able to try joining 5 footers. May take enough of the bowing out.

A year or so ago I built myself a hitting net using steel pipes (cheaper than PVC pipes where I come from) wrapped in foam pipe inslation. At first I designed the central panel the size of 2m wide and 2,5m high with attached right side panel of 1,5m wide and 2m high with adjustable angle to the main panel to catch the shanks I was battling with at the time. For the netting I used multiple layers of cheap anti hail net (to protect yineyards, gardens etc.), folded over the top ''rail''. After a month of driving the ball into the net the balls started to penetrate the net so for this year I bough myself tightly woven thick archery net from eBay and decided to slightly enlarge central panel (by 0,5m in width) and ditch the side panel since I managed to cure my shanks. When the wet weather passes I will assemle the whole thing again in my garden and take a few photos.

A couple weeks ago, @MattF offered up a net and plywood base/hitting mat he used to use in his garage. The net was just a big net that he used to hang from hooks in his garage. Since I have a low-headroom garage, I figured I could make something to hang the net from out of pvc so I could swing in my back yard. Having seen other people talk about pvc sagging, I decided to make a gable design to prevent this. I didn't want to glue the pvc so I could tear it down and put in my shed when the weather turns. It's not something you'd want to put together/tear down for each use as it is fairly labor intensive. I use zip-ties to attach the net to the frame. I am going to play around with how best to mount the net. As it is in the picture is OK, but I want to change it up a bit to see if I can get a bit of ball return action. After hitting into it a few times over the weekend, I may need to glue a few of the high stress joints (in particular, the peak), just for stability. Here is the design I ended up with. It's about 10' wide and 10' high at the peak and 3' deep.

Costs:

Net = $0
Base/mat = $0
PVC pipe/fittings = ~$40

Because of how wet May has been, I can't actually put the base on the only flat spot in my back yard, so where it sits now ends up being a slight uphill lie, but it is better than nothing!

Here is Mr. Short Game's net construction video. 

I have the Amazon basics net that is like the Rucket, I think it's 9x7, paid $52 for it last year, seems like a steal now.  Just be sure to start fairly close.  first shot I hit was a pitch with a 54, over the net over the fence into the neighbors backyard.  Luckily didn't hit it hard and no harm no foul, but it'll make you pucker the butt cheeks for sure...

I just got a pretty minimal setup in my backyard. I got the Fiberbuilt Practice Station from Costco and a Rukket net. I also made an impulse purchase and bought a used Mevo which I am hoping to get today! 

 

So far, I have been able to up to my 54* without flirting with the top of the net.

I have the same net and just ordered the Fiberbuilt Practice Station. How do you like it? And is there any reason you have a tarp underneath it?

It was the first time I used it so I just wanted to keep it from getting dirty. That obviously didn't last long!

 

I am a bit torn on the hitting surface. I read it was better for your joints and was more realistic but I find that I hit way more fat shots than normal. Not sure why but that is just my experience.

On the plus side, you can't beat the ease of setup/breakdown of this mat. I bought a plastic bin and pack it up so it is out of the way when I am not using it.

This is my current set up, but I plan to "Upgrade" pretty soon by making the net a little taller and wider than it currently is (currently 7'w x 8.5'T....Next design will be about 10'W x 9' T and made with a wood frame and possibly roof and side net options) . Just waiting for my Mevo unit to come in to test it in a few places of my yard before building a more permanent set up. So far this has worked great though. Have hit a couple thousand shots into it and it still looks new up close. I also have a Rukket Haack Net to use when I take this one down to build the bigger set up, but it started to show wear after about 500 shots so hoping I can get the white one back up soon once I do start he project.
