How to Set Up a Volleyball Net

    Step 1

    Use an allen wrench to remove the floor plates.

    Step 2

    Place the upright poles in the floor sockets. Adjust the posts to the correct height.

    Step 3

    Attach the net to the hook on the post without the winch.

    Step 4

    Attach the other end of the net to the winch cable.

    Step 5

    Turn the handle on the winch until the center of the net reaches the desired height; 7 feet 11 5/8 inches for men or 7 feet 4 1/8 inches for women.

    Step 6

    Attach the middle and bottom straps on both ends of the net to the poles.

    Step 7

    Adjust the height of the ends of the net by adjusting the position of the straps. The ends of the net should be no more than 3/4 of an inch higher than the center of the net.

    Step 8

    Tie excess rope or strap onto the poles to prevent a tripping hazard.

    Step 9

    Secure the protective pads around the poles.


  • Enlist a friend to help set up the net, it's easier with two people.
