Two 3½ inches by 12 foot long poles with sleeves for safety, (FIG. 3, #40). The sleeves should be padded and made of canvas materials with glow in the dark indicators; (FIG. 3, #50). The indicators should be positioned as follows: one glow in the dark indicator should be positioned at the top of the canvas sleeve; second indicator should be placed in the center of the canvas sleeve; third indicator should be placed at the bottom of the canvas sleeve. The glow in the dark indicators should be wrapped around the canvas sleeves. Each indicator should be approximately 3 inches in depth fitting the width of the canvas.
    • A 30×30 heavy duty black webbing court boundary system. This system should have inner and outer glow in the dark edging, (FIG. 4, #80). Not to shadow the black webbing court boundary but compliment the boundaries.
