How Do I Determine the Right Size of Batting Cage for My Back Yard?

If you're considering installing a batting cage in your backyard, one of the most important decisions you'll need to make is choosing the right size for your space and budget. The size of your batting cage will depend on several factors, including the size of your yard, the number of people who will be using the cage, and your budget. In this article, we'll explore how to determine the best size of cage that will fit your yard and budget.

Set Your Budget
Your budget will also play a role in determining the size and model of your batting cage. Larger cages will generally be more expensive than smaller ones, so it's important to understand your budget before you begin shopping. Consider purchasing a pre-made batting cage kit to save time and money on materials and installation costs.

Measure Your Yard
The first step in determining the size of your batting cage is to measure your yard. Determine the dimensions of the area where you want to install the cage. This will give you a good idea of the maximum size of cage that will fit in your space. Batting Cages Inc. has 8 standard sizes of cages of various heights, widths and lengths.

If you have multiple people who will be using the cage at the same time, you may need to choose a larger size to accommodate everyone comfortably. Conversely, if you are the only person who will be using the cage, you may be able to get by with a smaller size. Having said this, we recommend getting the largest size your yard and your wallet can afford.
