    I have a pile of netting that I used for a home made driving range of sorts about a year ago. There’s a fair pile of netting in it, never used most of it, just put it up between the gable of the house and boundary wall and smashed balls at it. If you wanted to be creative you could easily make an enclosed full sized driving range bay. If anybody’s interested pm me, 50 quid delivered. It’s basically a long length of boundary netting roughly 25ft by 15ft but can be stretched to more.

    I would love to take you up on your offer but I fear it would be a marriage breaker;)

    Is it one long length of 25 x 15 or is it in pieces?

    I'd be interested if its one long length....marriage be-damned!

    Also what sort of netting is it? Do you have any issues with balls escaping or do you need to double-up, etc?

    I had some issues with an old fishing net before that cost me a window!

    I was looking at a clip on social media last week of a back gargen set up. It looked great and he seemed to have all areas well protected. What ever way he hit his drive he completely skyed it and all you heard after about 4 seconds was a smash of a window breaking from down the road... No amount of netting would make some of my shots safe:D:D

    It’s sold and it was in one length.
