The 40′ backyard batting cage offers a high quality hitting environment to fit a smaller backyard. The #36 twine is very strong and more for the real heavy hitter or for a high school or college player. Approximate weight and size of box: 110 pounds, 42″ x 17″ x 17″ (LxWxH).
What you get:
What you need to buy at your hardware store:
You will need (23) 10′ Poles for the Frame
Everything is included except the 10′ poles needed for the frame. The poles are 3/4″ electrical conduit, steel galvanized pipe (EMT), and are readily available in stores such as Home Depot or Lowes. The trade name for these poles is “thin wall”. They are in the “electrical conduit” aisle.
#36 Nylon is by far our most popular material, but be sure to add latex if you’re using nylon outdoors.
Poly is a plastic material, so is waterproof without any further treatment. However, the poly tends to break down much quicker than the nylon. We consider poly to be more of a hobby material.
We sure can. Check out our NetCalculator, where you can enter your dimensions and receive an instant quote on a variety of materials.
You absolutely can. As long as your player can swing freely, and you protect your walls, ceiling structure, lights, and windows, you can turn almost any space into a potential hitting cage.

Absolutely. In fact, the majority of our customers install their batting cages themselves. We’ve got some great guides here:
We always recommend a minimum of 12-foot wide batting cages, but if you do have a tighter space, you may be able to move your player to one side of the cage to help prevent them from finishing their swing into the net. Before you order your net, have the player take a few practice swings in the area to be sure they can swing freely without hitting any objects, or feeling too constricted within the space.
We recommend a minimum of a 12-foot-tall net that’s installed at 11 feet to help prevent baseballs and softballs from escaping. However, we’ve seen and played in, some great basement cages that are installed at 8 feet high. If you’re in a tight space, have your player take a few practice swings in that space to make sure that they can swing freely without hitting any walls, windows, or other objects.
We sure can. We call that our ShellCage.
We recommend #60 nylon for all our commercial facility customers.
For larger, multisport facilities, we recommend the AirCage, an indoor, electric, retractable cage with the lowest profile in the industry.
Many facilities love the flexibility of the ShellCage, which is a great multi-lane, multi-sport cage.
Most homeowners end up with a CurtainCage, which features three overhead cable lines to support the net.
Take a look at our nCage Pro, nCage Collegiate, and nCage Varsity frames. Be sure to check with your HOA before you plant your cage. You’ll want a minimum of our #36 Nylon net, but be sure to add latex to help waterproof it against the elements.
We do! Take a look at our portable outdoor cages here.
We love the nCage Pro, nCage Collegiate, and nCage Varsity. In-ground batting cages like these provide durability and longevity.
Standard-size nets are 12 or 14 feet wide, 12 feet tall, and 55 and 70 feet long. However, we can build a net of any size. Be sure when determining what net size is best for your space that you stay at least 1 foot away from walls and at least 3 feet away from delicate objects like unprotected lights and windows.

There are two netting material types that we focus on at Practice Sports. Poly and Nylon.
First, the 36 gauge Nylon is the most popular material type. It’s a great net for high school players, or if you’d like to get your little leaguer through high school on one net. Nylon by itself isn’t water resistant, so if you’re using your net outdoors, be sure to add a latex treatment.
Poly is more of a backyard/hobby type of material. It is a plastic material, so it doesn’t require an additional treatment to make it water resistant.
