Building PVC Street Hockey Goals

Any tips, tricks, or plans for doing this? We have one of what might be the only outdoor street hockey rinks in Philadelphia directly behind our house. There are no nets out there, so i want to build 2 nets similar, but more sturdy than the Mylec ones that i used as a kid. Theres Lowe's and Home Depot and all that bloody jingo jango within range here.

Any suggestions?

If your using a puck get the thicker industrial black PVC, the white freezes and it cracks during the winter. Also when my dad and I built mine we built the frame and then got a 1/2 inch in diameter pipe to screw on the inside of the frame for the net, rather then worry about taking it apart to get the net on.

I'd say just go and get the metal piping. Pucks will kill the PVC eventually and even balls will do that. After a few shots off the pipe the joints start bending, etc.

I agree with sc37 especially if you are just gonna plan on leaving the nets there....and the good thing about the metal is you will never have to worry about cracking it and you'll get to hear the ting of hitting the post lol

A good trick to strengthen the pcv is to fill each pipe up with expanding foam. My pcv nets are going on 12 years now. I don't recommend using a puck though, 1 shot in the cold weather and your doing some repairs.

They also sell metal goals that are on the less expensive sides now. If you are using pucks then you also want to try and find thicker netting.

We will be using balls, the surface is pretty rough for pucks.

We live close enough that if the nets are light enough (PVC) it will be very easy to transport the net from our back alley door to the rink. I also don't think we will play much in the cold weather, im mostly interested for this spring and summer.
