Worlds solution for nets breaking

I was Just curios to know what measures would be taken to prevent nets from breaking at worlds, as they have so many times here, as well as what would be done to make sure the practice field nets stay fixed.

Replacing nets that break sounds likely, but it wouldn’t be the first time that balls were mis-scored because the ref had to hold up the broken net during the game, or because the ref couldn’t get to the net quickly. (Especially with raised fields making nets awkward to get at)

Team241F,
Thanks for the question. During normal gameplay the nets are not normally damaged. During VEX Worlds 2016 we will be replacing any nets that become broken or damaged in any way that could impact normal gameplay.

Best,
Brad
