Easy-to-Assemble: Portable PPS-22SQ systems are easy-to-assemble and only a couple tools are needed for assembly. All post and base frame pieces slide into place and are secured with pre-drilled set screws.
Rugged Solid Steel Construction: The 3” square tennis post is constructed from heavy-duty 11-gauge steel. Heavy-duty base frame is also constructed of 11-gauge 3” square steel and 3-1/2” square 3/16” heavy-wall steel. This portable system is supported by unique flat stabilizer legs that offer a greater range of play and increases player safety. Systems are finished with black baked-on polyester powder coat to resist rust and increase durability. The system can be used on both indoor and outdoor surfaces and is completely weather treated for year-round use. It is recommended that you store the system indoors during the off season for prolonged life.
Durable Long Lasting Hardware: Post is internally wound and features a self-locking gear mechanism. Gears are constructed of plated steel and the small gear is case hardened. Gear housings and caps are made of cast aluminum alloy. Gear function is 30:1 to ensure a smooth, easy operation. Flush mounted gear plate cover and removable handle are chrome plated.
Professional Quality Net
Net easily attaches with the top cable and to an eye-bolt on the base frame; no lacing rods are needed. Systems are complete with the PN-30 pickleball net and a velcro center strap. Net is constructed of 3.0 mm polyethylene netting with a white vinyl coated polyester headband. The net tension on typical portable pickleball nets is under 20 pounds. The net tension on the PPS-22SQ system is closer to the true permanent net tension of 400-500 pounds.
Transporter Wheel Assembly: The transporter wheel assembly allows for the systems to be moved on and off the court with ease. The heavy-duty non-scuff wheels are secured to the transporter assembly with smooth swivel casters that make moving the 215 pound system effortless. When its time to set the system in place for game play the transporter bracket simply flips up and out of the way. The non scuff wheels are always resting on the court so there’s no need to worry about damaging the court’s surface.
Lift Assist Handles: Convenient lift assist handles are included and allow to easily lift each post end to flip the transporter bracket up and out of the way while unit is in play.

The system was recognized at the ASBA Technical Meeting as a 2019 game changing product within the Courts & Recreation Division. The system is also recognized as the official net of the USAPA National Championships.
If you are looking for a portable system that lasts a lifetime and plays like a permanent pickleball net then the PPS-22SQ is for you!
