I would use pvc pipe as said above. It is cheaper than just about anything else. Panel could be made to size you desire. End each panel NOT with 90 elbow but with T’s top and bottom. This will allow you to connect and disconnect to another panel with short pieces of pipe to extend the area you wish to enclose. Make up some elbows with short pieces of pipe in both ends to use to connect to a panel at 90 degrees (do not glues these at the corners). You may also need to put center frame uprights to help support the frame depending on size. To hold the netting you could use screws with finishing washer (these are commonly use on boats, they are use on tapered screw heads) that will grip the netting. Good luck.
