Discus Cages

The Apollo discus cage can remain erected all season. That means throwers can train 24/7. Most cages have low wind ratings and spend most of their life in an unusable condition because the net is lowered. When you buy a Play Hard Sports cage the nets can remain erected in most wind conditions.


  • Net can remain erected in winds up to 62mph (100kph).
  • Reduced number of support poles – for better vision and reduced risk of implement damage.
  • Athletes can train all season in a fully erected cage.
