    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 .

    Sounds expensive :P
    I was hoping just to do it myself to saveon cost as i wasnt looking to spend much.

    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.
