Do It Tennis to Offer Douglas Tennis Nets in Their Court Equipment Lineup

An interview with Hans Paino, owner of Do It Tennis about Douglas Tennis Nets; the new addition to the company`s court equipment lineup.
Oct. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- OCEANSIDE, Calif.  - Do It Tennis recently announced that they have added Douglas tennis nets to their catalog of court equipment. The strong reputation of Douglas and their quality products were the main factors in the decision to sell their products. Hans Paino, owner of Do It Tennis, elaborated further on what led to the decision to add Douglas to the Do It Tennis lineup:

Christopher Mohr: What were the factors that led to the decision to start offering the Douglas nets?
Han Paino:  We want to carry the top-of-the-line court equipment and Douglas is one of the brands that has been around for a long time and provides quality court equipment. When I saw that Douglas was available, I went after them and got them on our website. I go to a lot of tennis venues and like to check out what they have on the courts and I saw Douglas a lot of the time, so I know they’re one the top-of-the-line brands.

CM:  So did you see these at some big-name tournaments?
HP:  I haven’t been to big tournaments to see it but I’ve been to some of the tennis centers here in San Diego. When I was in Las Vegas last weekend, any place I go to play, I probably see Douglas seven or eight out of ten places, so that tells me it’s a brand that we need to carry.

CM: When you talk about quality, are you talking about durability, if they are a good company to work with—what kinds of things are you looking at there?
HP:  I’m talking about the quality of the product and the pricing of it and just the name. A lot of times when people look to buy replacement products are saying, ‘I want the same thing.’ I talk to a lot of people in the industry and the feeling I got was that the company and the product are first-rate.

CM:  Where is the company based?
HP:  The company is based in Iowa, actually—Eldridge, Iowa.
CM:  Of all the places where you would expect a company that makes tennis products, you would not expect that, would you?
HP:  Exactly. Definitely not.

CM:  If I had a plot of land where I was building my dream home and wanted to set up a tennis court, what kind of tennis net would I use?
HP:  Douglas has the TN-45. It’s the top-of-the-line net. It’s double meshed at the top, very good quality, has a five-year warranty. Top-tier type of a net, definitely something you’d want to take a look at, something that would last a long time.

CM:  What is it that typically breaks down a net? Is it repeatedly hitting the ball into the net? Is it weather?
HP:  It’s a combination of both. It’s probably 50-50. You get a lot of wear and tear near the headband and that’s due to hitting the ball up there a majority of the time. That part of the net is going to get the brunt of the hits.
CM:  If you’re going to miss clearing the net, most of the time it will be near the top, right? Not too many shots three inches off the ground.
HP:  Exactly. About 99% of your shots that miss will be near the head band or the first two or three rows.

CM:  You said that Douglas has a five-year warranty. How does this compare to say, a middle-of-the-road brand. How long are their warranties?
HP: I would say a couple of years. If you took good care of it, two or three years. A lot of it depends on climate and how often you use it. If it’s being used 10-12 hours per day, it’s going to wear out a lot quicker.

Douglas Industries was founded in 1967 and is based in Eldridge, Iowa. They make tennis nets, windscreens, posts and other court equipment.
