Dave Dtroll mentioned along the same lines on Monday and TS was there too, it makes sense as most balls with upwards trajectory (i.e. those which hits a wheel, bike, goal post) might clear the 6m net while having the upper 2 or 3m going inwards at a 45 degrees angle will only very likely eliminate this but at the same time use the same amount of material.

I suggested the same thing a few days before at HH while finishing off the painting.
It would also make lighting the court easier as you could hang the lights above the court not just on the sides...
If you did go this route it would also be relatively easy to replace the net with a roof, for all weather polo.

Let's be realistic, guys...
We're NEVER gonna get a roof at the HH court... We need a cheap, easily assembled (and disassembled) solution... It only needs to last a year or two, chances are that a fence/cage will be erected when HH gets the funding*...
As you were...
* A proposal (which includes lights) is actually being written up by the HHVT at this very moment...

In terms of materials, there would be significantly less (both netting and stantions) in a dome style cover.
It requires a bit more planning and design, especially to make it removable, but it's far from impossible.
Once you've got a removable frame, hanging netting or other less porous material is fairly easy.
