5x 6ft sections,
4x 90 Degree angle joints

Im looking to make a lacrosse goal. as cheap as possible, where would be the best pace to get it from?

3mm is narrower than a straw.

Try 28mm plastic piping from any diy store plus 90 degree push fit fixings.

3mm is the wall thickness, i cant use plastic pipe as i would snap it should i hit the post.

Since you probably dont know a lacrosse ball is about the size of a tennis ball, but solid rubber and can be thrown at around 95 mph (i can get up to about 75) = Damage :P

yellow page your local engineering firms : ) get the corner joints welded up so the pipe pushes in and is held firm with a bolt .

Do you have a plumbcentre or equivalent near to you?

It's going to have to be pretty stable / fixed, if that lot falls on the keepr (do they have on) they'll know about it.

This is the sort of thing I'd use, an allen key locks the corner pipes in place if you need it to be dismantled.
