Indoor & Outdoor Volleyball Nets for all Levels of Play 
volleyball nets ultimate guide

The search for purchasing volleyball nets online can often be overwhelming with companies claiming to contain the “best selling nets, most popular volleyball nets”, or even companies claiming to offer “olympic grade” volleyball nets. We often hear from customers that have purchased from other companies that their volleyball nets have fallen short of what the other company claimed to deliver. So, when shopping for a volleyball net, which volleyball equipment company do you trust?

Sports Imports offers the exact same volleyball nets trusted by the NCAA, AVCA, USA Volleyball, NFHS, & the NJCAA, and Sports Imports is the official net system choice by each. Our volleyball nets have also been featured in numerous Olympic events for both indoor and beach volleyball competitions. Our company has been a part of the volleyball community since 1976, and we are the same company that brought the first in-ground volleyball pole systems to the United States. 

Bringing quality volleyball equipment that lasts for years has been a priority of the Sports Imports team since 1976. We invest in materials that bring top-notch performance to your volleyball programs, making it easy for volleyball coaches to focus on their volleyball teams and not spend time worrying about their net system. When shopping for the best volleyball net for your program, we can assist your team. We understand volleyball coaches do not have a lot of time to shop for a volleyball net, so we’ve created a comprehensive guide to buying an indoor or beach volleyball net.

 

Indoor Volleyball Nets

Sports Imports indoor volleyball nets may be seen at the Men’s and Women’s NCAA Volleyball Championships, inside the USA Volleyball Training Center, in over 90% of Division I colleges and universities, in high school & middle school volleyball programs, club volleyball programs, and in youth volleyball facilities. Quality is the top priority for Sports Imports. Therefore, we invest in the lightest and strongest volleyball net mesh to ensure the volleyball net will be both durable and able to achieve the exact regulation net height with every setup. Our indoor volleyball nets also meet the standards of our partners at NCAA, USA Volleyball, NFHS, and the NJCAA. When choosing an indoor volleyball net for your program, we offer multiple options. 

Senoh HM50 Indoor Volleyball Net 

The Senoh HM50 Volleyball Net is the world’s most popular and best indoor volleyball net, and is exclusively manufactured by Senoh for Sports Imports. This regulation volleyball net is featured in NCAA Men’s and Women’s Indoor Volleyball Championships, USA Volleyball practice facilities and events, NFHS matches and championships, and NJCAA championships. 

The Senoh HM50 Indoor Volleyball Net is uniquely constructed for unmatched quality and performance during indoor volleyball competitions. This net features a special Technora top cable which withstands extreme force without the kinking, curling, and fraying normally associated with steel cables. Sports Imports uses Technora fiber top cables, unlike other volleyball net suppliers, because these fiber cables are 2.5 times as strong as other volleyball net cables and the fibers will not stretch over time. Therefore, your program will have a net that will last longer and will achieve regulation net height for a longer period of time. The Senoh Indoor Volleyball Net is 32’ long and 1 meter (or 39”) wide. The Superlex netting on this net is composed of 360 pieces of ultra-fine fiber woven into perfect squares – making it strong, flexible, lightweight, and easy to see through. 

If your volleyball poles are more than 38 feet apart, the Senoh HM50 XL Indoor Volleyball Net is the best option for your indoor volleyball program. The XL cable is 52 feet long and accommodates a wider volleyball pole spread, up to 42 feet. Both the Senoh HM50 indoor volleyball net and the Senoh HM50 XL indoor volleyball net meet the standards of our partners at NCAA, USA Volleyball, NJCAA, and NFHS. 

Senoh FIVB Approved Indoor Volleyball Net

The Senoh FIVB Indoor Volleyball Net is made by Senoh for Sports Imports and is approved for FIVB indoor volleyball competitions. If you are planning to host an FIVB sanctioned event, this is the indoor volleyball net of choice. The Senoh Technora cable contains great strength and durability for high level competition without fraying or torsion. The FIVB approved volleyball net’s string is composed of ultra-fine fiber which allows the net to be light, strong, and flexible for professional volleyball events.

Sitting Volleyball Net

The Sports Imports Sitting Volleyball Net is specifically designed for a sitting volleyball court. This sitting volleyball net is used by USA Volleyball and is in the USA Volleyball National Training facility. The sitting volleyball net features a Kevlar top net cable and net locks to secure the bottom cable. The reinforced rubber corners on the net offer strength and durability.

Indoor Volleyball Net Parts

When purchasing an indoor volleyball net for your program, it is important to be sure all of the proper net parts are also purchased or included with purchase. To be fully ready for volleyball matches, we recommend inspecting your Sports Imports volleyball net parts beforehand, so your team is prepared for the volleyball officials and your volleyball equipment is safe for your athletes. Our volleyball net replacement parts are strong and durable, making them a top choice of volleyball coaches. Our volleyball equipment experts are able to walk you and your team through the process of inspecting your volleyball net and can recommend appropriate replacement parts for your volleyball net system. 

If your indoor volleyball team is using/purchasing the Senoh HM50 indoor volleyball net, you will receive dowel rods, volleyball net tension side straps, side ties, net locks and net lock covers. If your team has misplaced any of these parts, we recommend replacing them before your team returns for the season. For newer coaches, we’ve included a summary of our replacement parts to help you and your team be prepared for your volleyball season.

Dowel rods are an important part of your volleyball net as they help to keep the net taut and squared after being inserted into the sides of the volleyball net. Volleyball Net Tension Side Straps and side ties help keep a volleyball net tight and at the perfect tension for the length of the volleyball match. The VSS1 volleyball net tension side straps are easily attached to the volleyball net and poles, and can be easily removed after play. If your team purchased or is using the Senoh HM50 XL Indoor Volleyball Net, we recommend the XL Volleyball Net Tension Side Straps which are included with your purchase to account for a wider pole spread. 

The Volleyball Net Lock Tighteners are used to tension the bottom cable of the net quickly and easily. After placement onto your volleyball net system, we recommend covering the net locks for added safety of athletes. Often, volleyball officials require the net locks to be covered before the start of the match. The volleyball net lock covers attach easily over top of the net locks. If you notice any wear or tear on your volleyball net cables, we offer replacement Bottom Volleyball Net Cables and a replacement Technora Top Volleyball Net Cable as well as the XL version. If your team needs assistance with replacing the cables, our how to replace the volleyball net cable video is a great resource. 

After your volleyball net parts are updated, your team will need to inspect antennas currently in the program or purchase new volleyball net antennas. We offer the indoor volleyball net antenna which pairs well with our HM50 and HM50 XL volleyball nets. The Sitting Volleyball Net Antenna is used for the Sitting Volleyball Net, and the Senoh FIVB Approved Volleyball Net Antenna should be used for FIVB Approved volleyball events. Last, your team will need to check the volleyball net height to be sure necessary requirements are met by using a volleyball net chain. The volleyball net height chain attaches easily to the top of your volleyball net with a simple hook. If you are unsure which volleyball net height your program should be using, we recommend using our Volleyball Net Height Guide as a tool.
