Why are you adding a windscreen?
The material you choose will determine how well your windscreen performs in a variety of situations. Here are the most common reasons for installing a windscreen:
- Protection from gusting wind
- To see the ball better during play
- To feature your facility’s logo
- To make your courts look more professional
How strong is your fence?
Your fence should be strong enough to support the weight of a windscreen. Most fences can support any Har-Tru windscreen; however, lighter material and a 6’ screen are suggested for lower gauge or weaker fencing.
What else is on your court?
Look for gates and transoms, drop-downs, unusual angles in the fence, and anything else around your court that might affect the windscreen you choose and how you install it.
When you have a good overview of your site, it’s time to make a detailed plan.
