Don't let the fact that you don't have a solid net keep you from playing volleyball. Today, there are many affordable sets on the market that are well-made and only take minutest to set up.
These are the characteristics to consider when purchasing a volleyball set:
- Can it be set up easily and quickly? You don't want to spend half of your family barbecue reading through pages of instructions just to get a fun game of volleyball going.
- Similarly, when you're done playing, can it be dissembled easily and is it portable enough to take to another location?
- Is it sturdy? Can it withstand a gust of wind without falling over?
- Is it affordable? Unless you play often and are very serious about the game, you probably don't want to spend a ton of money.
The list that follows includes items that meet all of the above criteria.

It also comes with a heavy-duty carrying bag for convenient portability. This net amazingly comes with a lifetime warranty, where most sets come with a warranty of only 2 years.
