By Nicole Byerly
Use heavy-duty netting to make a cricket practice net.

Cricket is a sport that millions of individuals all over the world play. During periods when these individuals are not playing a game with others, practicing the sport is important in order to improve the players' skills. Creating a practice net is a simple task that allows cricketers to practice and play anywhere they desire.

Cover the outer perimeter of both ends of one 72-inch PVC pipe with rubber cement.

Place one L-joint over each end of the 72-inch PVC pipe to glue the pieces together with the rubber cement applied in Step 1. Press all three sections flat on the ground so both L joints are facing the same direction.

Apply rubber cement to the end of the two 48-inch sections of PVC pipe. Cover the perimeter of the end in a thick coat and insert one section into the L-joints attached to the 72-inch section of PVC pipe to create a U-shaped structure.

Repeat steps 1 through 3 with the remaining 72-inch PVC pipe and the two remaining 48-inch sections of PVC pipe.

Apply a ring of rubber cement around the perimeter of two exposed ends of the 48-inch PVC pipes on one U-shaped structure.

Lay the U-shaped structure on a flat surface and attach one L-joint on each end in a standing position.

Apply a ring of rubber cement around the perimeter of two exposed ends of the 48-inch PVC pipes on the remaining U-shaped structure.

Insert the ends into the standing L-joints installed in Step 6 to create a large structure that appears to be L-shaped when looking at it from the side.

Spread netting over the top 72-inch PVC pipe. Tie it around the corners with string.

Pull the netting to the bottom 72 inch section and tie it around the corners with string.

Tie the netting to all areas of the PVC pipe with string by looping the netting and string around the PVC pipes.
