Our Net, for a Year.
Last year, we put up the first basketball net our Marion Hopkinson court had seen in a while. Philip B., locally known as Lil Phil, brazenly installed it without a ladder. (I think we tightened it up with a ladder eventually). The net served us well, but eventually started to fray.
This year, old man Julian used the ladder approach from the beginning. After a little break-in period, we're pleased with this new net's performance and the pleasing sound it consistently makes from fifteen feet (and somewhat less consistently from behind the arc, but everything has a range, no?)
