What size are your volleyball/umbrella sleeves?

Posted by (My Page) on

Our builder gave us 1 1/2" diameter (1.5 OD) sleeves in our deck which we were going to use for a volleyball set. Turns out that most of the nicer volleyball sets require a 1.9 OD size sleeve.

I think it's a little weird that we got sleeves so small - in fact I cannot find a single pool volleyball set out there that will accommodate 1 1/2". My husband says it's our fault for not double checking. The builder says that 1 1/2" is the standard size for volleyball sleeves. Then why can't I find a quality set that will accommodate this?! I'm just wondering what size most people have.

1.5". My PB said it was standard also. I'm going to make my own using PVC and having a net purchased from Sports Authority altered to fit the correct distance.

See the thread below that I posted in.

S.R. Smith makes a very nice set that will fit in standard 1.5 inch anchors. Interfab also makes them. Either one will be a solid set that will give many years use.
