HOW TO MAKE POLES (Beach version only - not Back-Yard version)

 

Poles take only a few minutes to make.

You save about $15.00 on the price plus about $7.00 in shipping if you make your own poles. So your total savings is about $22.00! These savings are after you pay for the pole material.

 

 

To make simple poles:

·         Go to a hardware store like Home Depot and buy two one-inch diameter PVC poles, 8 or 10 feet long.

·         Cut the poles so that you have two 6 and 1/2 foot poles. That’s it – you’re finished. These are the poles that you use in the game. PVC is very easy to cut, and any saw will cut through it.

·         You can tie the net directly to the poles. We recommend, however, that you drill 2 holes in each pole, about 2 feet apart, and then screw in screw-eyes for attaching the net.

 

To make two-piece poles:

·         Each pole will consist of 2 forty-inch PVC piece attached by a simple PVC connector.

·         Go to a hardware store like Home Depot and buy two one-inch diameter PVC poles, 8 or 10 feet long.

·         Also buy 2 one-inch simple connectors.

·         Cut the poles so that you have four 40 inch poles. That’s it – you’re finished. You connect the sections with the connectors to get two 80 inch poles. These are the poles that you use in the game. PVC is very easy to cut, and any saw will cut through it.

·         You can tie the net directly to the poles. We recommend, however, that you drill 2 holes in each pole, about 2 feet apart, and then screw in screw-eyes for attaching the net.

·         If you want, you can also buy a PVC cap for each side.

·         The reason you might want 40-inch sections is that they are easier to fit into a carrying bag.

 

Costs:

·         Two 6 and 1/2 foot poles cost about $3.00.

·         Two-piece poles cost about $3.75.
