Netball court covers
Britain has some great netball talent emphasised by England’s stunning victory in the 2018 Commonwealth Games. However 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.
Sport England funding for netball
To help the sport further develop Sport England has awarded netball £16.9 million for the current funding cycle. This funding could prove to be an important factor for many organisations when looking to upgrade their facilities.
Our netball court domes
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.
Netball court layout
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, 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.
