Great product & service!!I bought the Spalding NBA Area Series III Inground pole and Backboard as a Christmas gift for my son. The service was great and Academy had the pole drop shipped to me at my house so I didn't even have to pick up that part. The assembly, while not easy, was explained very well in the assembly instructions and between me, my son and my wife we assembled the unit. Now my son and half the neighborhood is playing basketball at our house on a regular bases.

What guage steel is the pole made of?
Asked by: Splash Doctor
Unsure of gauge. However, we did this setup at our previous house for 5 years and liked it so much we installed it at our current house in January. It is a substantial backboard and pole with solid manufacturing. It is legit. I'd guess the thickness of the steel is in the ..125 inch range, maybe slightly less.

what gauge of steel used for this pole. Thank you
Asked by: Frankle
I think that the gauge of the pole is 3/16". It is very strong and doesn't have very much flex, even with the 72" backboard.

Does this come with everything you need for ground installation? If so would my local Academy (Austin, TX) be able to help with a installer? Thanks much
Asked by: DDAD
For the Spalding NBA Arena Series III Inground Pole you will need several additional tools for installation as you will need to dig a hole in the ground and pour concrete in it.
We work in conjunction with Assembler's Inc. to have products assembled. You may contact Assembler's Inc. at 888-499-2720.
