I looked at a lot of goals. I thought I would give this a try because of the low price. I was worried because you get what you pay for. This was different. This goal is great. It was not easy but not hard to put together. Be careful when you get it together and stand it up because it can tip over until you can get weight in the base. It is a very sturdy goal, I filled the base with water and have five sandbags on top. I am very pleased with the goal.
I bought this for my 7yr old to work on his individual skills (shooting, etc.). My wife and I put this together in 2.5 hrs including interruption from our 7 and 3yr olds. To work around the issue of bouncing the sections together, I sprayed the pieces with WD-40 and they "bounced" right in with ease.
Just purchased today for our son. Seems to be a good quality goal. The backboard is a little flimsy (thin plexiglass) but appropriate for a goal of this price. Time will tell how well in holds up. We love the easy height adjustment. Using sand in the base. Assembly was very easy and straightforward. I had read the reviews of how difficult it was to assemble but totally disagree. I laid out all the parts and followed the instructions step by step. The parts aren't labeled but are easy to match to ... the instructions (poles are labeled Top, Middle, Bottom). Very pleased with this purchase.
First off, I found this little gem on sale for way cheap. For what we paid for it, it was a bargain. I find that the backboard is not as substantial as a bigger one and assembly was a royal pain. Pay close attention to the instructions and make sure they make sense. Also, tools listed did not include things like a tape measure but the instructions said I needed to measure something. Make sure you have two people to assemble or it will not be much fun. Once we got it together, it will not stand ... up at all unless you hold the base down so be ready to fill the base with water. Once together, my son and I played basketball for several hours. One of the things I really like about the goal is the VERY easy to adjust height from 7.5' to 10' by 1/2' increments. This made it fun for my 8 year old daughter and for us. All in all, if you can get a deal on it, you will not be disappointed. Assembly is a pain but after that, good backboard system.
Bought few weeks ago. Just got it installed. All went good. One thing to caution is: Filling in the concrete inside the Pole didn;t go good. There weren't any extra information in the manual to that effect. I filled in a regular composition of concrete to a pole stading at about 55 - 60 degree angle. due to the bolts holding the parts of the system going through the pole, the concrete were stuck somewhere in the middle and I don't think the pole got filled in with concrete completely. I ... think it's about only 1/2 got filled in. So, I suggest you make concrete a bit more watery so it will glide down easily to the bottom of the pole. I gave 4 Stars due to this lack of instructions in the manual. I think it should be 4.5 starts, but it is not possible.
The Spalding 54" Acrylic Inground Basketball System was very nice. The price was great. It looks very professional NBA like. The assemble takes some time but the directions are good. I would recommend this basketball inground hoop. Quality system and best price in town. Met all my basketball needs and wants.
I bought this for my son for christmas he just turned 7. we absolutely love it was easy to put together and very sturdy I would recommend this basketball goal in a heartbeat and the price was fabulous.
Got this goal for my 3 young boy children. They love it. Easy adjustable. Easy assembly. Thank you Academy Sports and Outdoors
I bought this system about a month ago after my boys ensured me that they'd use it. I live in the country an most days are very windy, and by the end of the day most portable goals are laid over. The instructions are pretty straight forward and simple. I uploaded some photos to help out with any bracing or leveling issues
Plan on this system to take 3 days for assembly(because of concrete drying times) and get at least 5-6 80# bags of concrete to install as per directions. The post removal system is a joke. It is very hard even with 2 capable adult men to get this unit out of the ground(if you want to get ride of it or store it for winter). It doesn't mention anything about this in the product description when you purchase it. I wanted a more robust system and thing this one fits my needs.
Lifetime donated two of these basketball goals to our Physical Education program and our students love them!! They are able to practice shooting while trying to use correct form and it as made a world of a difference! Thank you lifetime!
I bought this for my son but it is too small since he is an adult and I would like to play too
Easy assembly, put poles together myself, wife helped put up pole and back board. Quality product
Awesome, great purchase. Arrived quickly, clear instalation direction
Great product... would be better with an option for assembly. The assembly was not easy, the instructions appear to be translated Chinese. Spent 6 hrs assembling the goal. And it is heavy. The box arrived damaged with parts hanging out as well. When researching online, there was no option to look up the weight of the box that was arriving. 120lb box showed up on the doorstep. We love the goal, but the beginning was a little difficult.
This was a gift and as of now I don't know to much about the product, except it certainly made a 12 year old extremely happy.
Quality of materials were pretty good for use by my 11 & 12 year old grandsons. They are enjoying playing hoops on it. On the other hand the instructions for putting it together were not as good as desired. You had to depend on pictures and few words. Some confusion for order of construction but still a good driveway product
We bought it about a month ago and it's all we expected! It is nice and durable. It holds up well under very windy conditions and kids love to dunk. We love that it will grow with our kids as hight can be changed.
The lady I spoke with was wonderful! It is so hard to find good customer service these days. She really valued me as a customer and made the situation a positive experience. I will rave about this company to everyone.
Great basketball goal. Glad I got it. Very sturdy.
Great price Great sturdy hoop . LOOKS GREAT and WORKS Great
For the price this basketball hoop is decently constructed. Not sure I would recommend anyone try dunking on it but for regular everyday use it seems like it will hold up. putting everything together is easy but will take several hours due to the amount of pieces. I bought the inground sleeve as well and that made it easy to make sure the pole was straight when the concrete was setting. To assemble the pole after you pour your cement plan on spending at least 2 hours to assemble the pole.
My parents purchased a system similar to this when we first moved into the house they currently live in. We loved it!! It has never had any problems and it's great for the younger kids to play on as well and the adults. It is so fun!
The product is decent, however, I had a nightmare with the instructions--or lack thereof. It was like 3 or 4 pages were missing. In addition I was missing a bag of parts. Customer support sent another set to me, and the replacement bag was missing parts. They then sent me another "complete hardware kit", but it too was missing parts. I finally got it together, but not necessarily with the right parts. Customer support said I would get Saturday delivery on the parts, but they didn't show ... up until the following Tuesday. Some of the plastic parts were brittle and broke. I am sure Customer Service will replace them again, but this is quite ridiculous. The movement of the hoop up and down is smooth and easy, but I have NEVER seen such horrible instructions in my life. It isn't an exaggeration. They were absolutely awful. Missing parts seemed quite common for my experience. They said it is rare, but to have customer service ship me parts 2 times and to still have missing parts is ridiculous. If I were to do this again I would probably order from a competitor. As it was I went to the store and saw it there and purchased it. I gave 3 stars because the finished product is decent, but did I mention how horrific the instructions were?
I bought this a week ago and it's the best decision I've ever had . Also the Academy is the best store in the world. The people that work there are very friendly and help you with anything you need .
I bought this unit based on Research of the quality for the price it's an outstanding product my grandkids love it
Everyone likes to throw down a big dunk, so basketball hoops with an adjustable height are great fun. The adjustable basketball goal on a kids' basketball hoop lets your child pretend to be his or her favorite basketball player while soaring through the air and trying to replicate a cool dunk from last night's game.
If your driveway isn't quite large enough to accommodate a hoop full time, a portable design could be a great choice for you. With a lightweight design that's easy to move and a base that fills up with water for stability when you're in position, a portable hoop lets you enjoy shooting a game of HORSE or a quick game of one-on-one without having to sacrifice real estate for a permanent hoop in your driveway or in your garage.
Basketball is important to you, so an in-ground hoop is a great way to show off your love of the game. With a more permanent construction, you'll be able to shoot jumpers all day long, and the adjustable design lets you practice your most outrageous dunks. A break-away hoop design lets you hang from the rim without fear of it breaking off. For our Spalding Arena Series Hoops be sure to include all of the necessary components, including a pole, backboard, rim and yoke arms, to complete your kit.
