Socketed or freestanding posts?
Choosing the correct type of posts for your school or club depends on the version of the game that is being played:
- Freestanding netball posts can be used for training, junior competition and recreational play.
- Floor fixed posts are ideal for solution for indoor courts that are unable to have ground sockets installed.
- Socketed posts are ideal for County leagues and any higher levels of competition. Sockets and nets are included.
The official rules require posts set at a height of 10ft, with a ring that has an internal diameter of 15 inches. A net and post padding are also required.
"As the official supplier to England Netball, Harrod manufactured netball posts have been used in major events including the Fast5 World Series, the Vitality Netball Superleague and the 2017 Malawi Series."
Colours and branding
Team colours and branding are available on netball post protectors.
Colourmix freestanding netball posts offer a fully adjustable ring height and a choice of eight different colours for the ring and the solid steel base. Colourmix posts are made to order and the lead time is 3-4 weeks. Other netball posts should be available less than 2 weeks from the receipt of an order.
Where possible, posts should have the following adjustable heights to make sure they can be used by all age groups:
10ft (3.05m): Adult
9ft (2.75m): High 5, for 9-11 year olds
8ft (2.44m): First Step netball, for 7-9 year olds
Competitive netball at all levels, including High 5 at primary school level, should always be played on a full-sized court. Informal mini courts are recommended for non-competitive games where space is restricted.
England Netball recommend the following dimensions:
Full-sized court: 30.5m x 15.25m
Mini Court: 15m x 8m
If properly maintained, posts can last for years, but general wear and tear and rust could reduce the life of your posts.
To protect against this, regular maintenance is essential. This includes regular checks for fixtures and fittings and the use of maintenance spray when required.
