Our Top Tips for Goal Maintenance

Here are some of Mark Harrod Ltds top tips on goal maintenance, essential in off-seasons and when preparing for a new season:


  1. Check for damage to the goal frame, any joints that may have opened up, or cracks in the structure
  2. Ensure all fixings are present, are not damaged and are tightened up
  3. Ensure your goal has sufficient anchorage, whether it is pegs, sandbags or counter-weights 
  4. Make sure your nets are complete, and there are no breaks or holes where there shouldn’t be
  5. Pack your net neatly into a net bag for storage when not in use – it’s been known for nets to be nibbled in storage!
  6. Ensure folding mechanisms and fence-fixed systems are in full working order and are not loose
  7. Store your goals securely when not in use to protect them from the weather.
  8. Ensure that all moving parts, such as nets and hinges, are checked regularly for any signs of wear and tear.
  9. Grease and oil all of your moving parts: wheels and lift mechanism, fence fixed hinges for example. We recommend using silicon grease.
  10. Give your goal posts a thorough clean to get rid of mud and dirt and reduce the risk of rust
