Dear Axel,

I have used flooring timber and glued the carpet to it to make it very flat and firm, however, I know some other universities have just a carpet that they role out when required.

Masking tape.  Here in Australia it comes in slightly different widths, but I have found 48mm which is close enough.

I used PVC pipes (intended for plumbing).  It came in the exact dimensions that we needed.

Please note that one proposed change for 2012 will be that both goals will be white.  This hasn't been confirmed yet, but it might waste your time to paint them now, and then paint them again later in the year!

Sorry, no.  I just went to a hardware shop.
