How to tie a net around a pole easily and tight?
How do you tie it so it makes net straight and what knot?

Just make a tight knot, then you can twist/turn the pole to tighten it further.

And if you want to make it more official, don't forget to tie the bottom of the net to the pole too.

just put your weight into it, and it should be a weave not a knot

In case you do not have a ratcheted post, use the clove-hitch on this too. Pull the post inward, tie, then pull the post back. This technique should help you adjust height at centre as required.
- Tie a clove hitch to secure the end opposite of the ratcheted post.
- When tied, the cord must exactly at 5 feet 1 inch from the gym floor.
- The other end you loop into the ratchet and spin away until you hear the twang in the net cord like a piano wire. Well, not that tight, but enough so that the middle is an inch lower than the posts (as written by alexh in post #4).
Then secure the net tape to the post using a thin cord through the grommets at both ends.
When this is done, you may now bring the net together as close to the posts without actually pulling on it. There is usually a white or red-brown cord every few inches down the side of the net, or in lieu of which, you may use broken string, or tape, anything that will secure the net without being noticeable.Ideally, the posts should be vertically aligned with the outside lines, and there should be no gaps between the posts and the net.
NB: Pulling net down sometimes reduces the 5 foot height required at the centre.
