I had a portable one - tent style. But I found I didn’t use it much as it took ages to set up. You can’t leave it out as the ground pegs weren’t strong enough for wind. I’ve just bought a cage with net for £350 from eBay .
I made one out of wood and netting , I'm only hitting lightweight balls in to it though.

I had one a few years back at the old house, I erected it too close to the fencing at the end of the garden and destroyed the panels behind it :whistle::oops:

Ordered on Monday , delivered today .
Looking for a used range mat but using an off cut of Astro for now. £349.99 delivered from eBay.

I would suggest purchasing an impact net or putting something were the ball hits regularly. We have been though a couple of nets over the years(ball ends up escaping in corners and were it hits the net regularly), and the balls go ping, whack, smack.:LOL:

We put a bed sheet just in front of the net which worked fine, but eventually purchased an archery impact net and that is superb.

I’ve got a large target that it came with which should take some of the impact , my concern was if this acts as a sale when it’s windy. Did you find this a problem?

Not sure I'll be getting one...
The echo around the garden and other gardens would be horrific
Whack, thud.....whack, thud....whack, thud
That would last about 2 minutes before a bucket of water would come flying over a fence....
I'll pass
