Tragbares Metallnetz / Ping Pong/Headis Metal-Net

Tragbares Metallnetz
Tragbares Metallnetz

The metal-net eliminates the problem of traditional Ping Pong nets breaking
during heavy use due to fragile plastic construction. Originally designed for
the sport Headis (played with a 7’’ rubber ball only using your head), the metal construction is built to withstand even heavy impacts of both body and ball, therefore allowing longer usage and more variety than traditional Ping Pong nets.

The patented plug-in system allows players to easily mount and dismount the net within seconds. Dismounted parts are small enough to be carried in any traditional backpack.
