4. HOW FAR APART TO PUT THE POLES

by Mike Harding November 05, 2013

(i) OPEN GOAAAL!  

In normal set up, the white goal is in the middle of the 2 poles and the black surround net covers all of the space to the poles.  All of the following measurements are in metres.

The maximum width the poles can be placed apart is 7.5m for the Standard size and 9.5m for the Large.  Remember also to add on the width of the guy ropes.

If your garden is narrower, you can move the poles closer together.  Here are the narrowest pole positions we recommend.

If you’d like to position the white goal a little off-centre because of the layout of your garden, then you can do that too.  However if you keep the poles at full width, it will leave a gap at the end as the black net has a fixed width.  Don’t reduce the narrow side of the black netting below 1.0m.

Finally, on the Standard size only, you can also increase the maximum distance between the poles from 7.5m up to 9.5m, perhaps if you want the poles at the edges of the garden.  However as above it will leave a gap at the end as the black net has a fixed width.

(ii) OPEN GOAAAL! NO SURROUND            

The poles can be a maximum of 9.5m and a minimum of 6.9m apart.

        

And the goal can be positioned at any point between the 2 poles as long as it is no closer than 1.0m to a pole.
