Netball court construction & bespoke covering systems
Netball has been a popular game in schools across the UK for many years, but its popularity is branching out and according to England Netball participation in the sport is growing fast.
Invented in the United States in the 1890s, netball now attracts players of all kinds, with at least one million women and girls playing the game in the UK every week.
And although traditionally a women’s sport, it is also becoming more popular among men.
All this means there’s more demand for quality netball courts and facilities to nurture new talent and provide safe, certified places for players to get involved.
At CopriSystems Ltd, we can provide bespoke covering systems for netball courts in dimensions and heights that conform to all the requirements of England Netball.
We offer both fixed and telescopic domes that provide total flexibility and enable clubs and sports venues to operate all year round, whatever the weather.
Netball court layouts
A netball court is divided into thirds, with a centre third in the middle and two goal thirds either side. Within the goal thirds there are two goal semi-circles where the shooting nets are positioned.
There is also a centre circle at the heart of the court, where play begins at the start of the match and resumes after each quarter or a successful goal.
A standard court is 30.5 metres in length and 15.25 metres in width. The size of the side run-offs and team and spectator areas depends on the layout of the court and its category level.
England Netball has established five categories of court, ranging from category one for outdoor courts for school and community use, to category five for indoor netball courts hosting professional matches.
Courts can be laid out individually, in rows, or end to end, depending on the land available and the developer’s requirements.
At CopriSystems Ltd, we can provide covers to suit all types of netball facilities, as our fixed domes can be supplied in multiples with full interconnection using internal support posts.
Netball in all weather conditions
Britain has some great netball talent, but the problem with training on UK soil is that the weather doesn’t always lend itself to hours of uninterrupted practice.
Netball court covers from CopriSystems provide the solution to this problem, keeping courts warm and dry all year round. With our telescopic domes, courts can also double up as outdoor facilities.
All our domes are designed in accordance with British Standards Building Regulations for snow and wind loadings, and if extra insulation is required then second membrane skins can be added.
Sliding side curtains are supplied as standard, but we can also fit openings at the gable ends, providing greater flexibility when the wind direction is changeable.
Covers are manufactured from flame-retardant, PVC-coated polyester fabric and the structures of the domes are made from high-tensile steel, which is hot dip galvanised for corrosion protection.
For extra safety and security, fire doors can be fitted to all our netball court covers, while side cladding is also available if required.
