How to Install a Tennis Center Anchor
It’s not uncommon for a tennis strap anchor to become loose over time. When a tennis net is properly tensioned, it can put a lot of stress on the center strap anchor.
Our 3-step guide on how to install a tennis center anchor below can help to keep your anchor from becoming dislodged:
- Center straps are used to insure that the center of the net is exactly 3’ above the playing surface. Straps are height adjustable and are fitted into a ground anchor.
The center strap anchor is set in a concrete foundation usually measuring 12” in diameter with a minimum depth of 12”. The anchor is fitted with a cross pin below the surface of the court.
- It is important that the top of the ground anchor be installed flush with the court surface and parallel with the net line to avoid twisting the center strap.
