Nothing but net

Help me find netting to partly enclose a basketball court.

I need a barrier to stop a basketball from tumbling down a hill beside by driveway. Right now I use a couple of tennis nets, sans cables, strung one above the other between two poles. It’s 6 feet high, and it works, but it’s heavy and a pain to put up and down (a flexibility I prefer, but don’t absolutely require).
What I want is something lighter and less dense – I’m trying to stop a slow basketball, not a fast tennis ball. I think 9- or 10-inch squares of light twine would work perfectly. Bonus for large (~10 x 50), but I can easily string two smaller ones. And bonus for cheap.
