Quad-NetZ, an innovative UK-based sports equipment brand, has launched a new range of cricket bowling and batting practice nets which give players the chance to hone their skills from the comfort of their own garden – and enjoy other sports at the same time!
Simple to assemble and even simpler to modify for up to four different sports, Quad-NetZ represents a home sports revolution - a patent-pending system that can incorporate four of the UK’s most popular participation sports into one product.
Three cricket net systems are available – Quad-NetZ2+ (cricket and football), Quad-NetZ3+ (cricket, football and rugby) and Quad-NetZ4 (cricket, football, rugby and golf).
Quad-NetZ is a patent pending system that builds into a 12’ long cricket net complete with side panels and including a net roof in the larger adult version.
The clever, modular design of Quad-NetZ2+ means it also easily converts to a football goal with larger 4” mesh netting.
Quad-NetZ3+ additionally includes rugby conversion uprights and netting, while Quad-NetZ4 builds into the complete home sports practice system with bespoke golf netting and foam pole padding.
With whichever system they choose, to create the ultimate cricket net players simply assemble the football goal then fasten the cricket poles and 1” net with supplied Velcro straps.
All poles are numbered and connect using an easy push-and-click system and additional guide lines and ground stakes are provided which, when attached and fixed to the ground, provide enhanced stability.
Quad-NetZ commercial director, Peter Tricklebank-Vowell, said: “Many cricketers, especially those with children, find it impossible to justify the expense of a high quality cricket practice net just for their own use.
"But with Quad-NetZ products they get a great net to help them play better cricket which can also be used by the footballers, golfers or rugby players in the family.
“Cricket nets are vital to prevent damage to plants and windows and to allow players to practise freely without the worry of bothering neighbours and Quad-NetZ is a high-quality, durable, weatherpoof practice net system that can be enjoyed all-year round – either at home or at a cricket club.”
Available in two widths (adult 8ft and intermediate 7ft) when fully-constructed the Quad-NetZ cricket systems provide a 12ft enclosed batting and bowling lane which has been rigorously tested to pass key sports and toy industry safety standards for strength, stability and corrosion.
The 1¼'' diameter powder-coated 0.8mm thick steel poles (football crossbar is 1mm thick steel) are tested to the highest possible standards, while frame connectors are manufactured from high-impact ABS.
Quad-NetZ cricket net systems are available priced from £219.99 and can be bought direct from www.quad-netz.co.uk or from leading sports equipment retailers.
