Pickleball is a sport that has grown rapidly in popularity over the last decade or two. While it’s similar in nature to tennis, it has a few unique elements that make it its very own leisure sport. Pickleball can be played by family, friends, and even in competitive contexts.
However, when it comes to a pickleball court, you need to perform essential maintenance for your pickleball net. Otherwise, you’ll have to replace it more often. That results in less playtime and more expenses. So let’s talk about how to extend the life of your pickleball net.

The pickleball net should be broken down and stored. This will maximize the overall lifetime of your investment in the net. It should be stored somewhere that is cool and dry. A closet, storage unit, or garage can suffice depending on the weather.
Keep it out of snowstorms, rainstorms, or other extreme weather patterns. For instance, many pickleball court operators take the net down and store it in a safe place during the winter. This is especially true if you’ve already closed down the court for the season.
