Portable Basketball Hoops: 10 Quick Tips
1. In basketball, traveling is usually a bad thing. But a portable basketball hoop that's ready to move can increase the versatility of your gym, playground, yard, or driveway while avoiding the laborious installation requirements of inground hoops.
2. Their wheeled designs feature locking casters for easy movement and secure placement. Stability is provided by a weighted base. Boom supports, rear hold-downs, and a 96-inch extension from base to backboard are recommended if your goal must meet NCAA or National High School Federation regulations.
3. Adjustable systems are the ultimate in gym or playground versatility. With a typical hoop height range of 7.5 to 10 feet (even as low as 4 feet in some cases), they can easily meet the needs of elementary schoolers, middle schoolers, teens, and adults.
4. Acrylic backboards are the preferred choice for durability and rugged indoor/outdoor performance. Keep in mind that the thicker the backboard, the truer the bounce will be on rebounds and bank shots.
5. Polycarbonate backboards are made from a clear, high-impact, shatter-resistant thermoplastic. Polycarbonate is typically noisier and thinner than acrylic, and more prone to shaking. However, combined with a powder-coated metal hoop system, it's an excellent all-weather material for outdoor play.
6. For weight reasons, low-cost glass basketball hoops will usually have a thinner backboard than the 0.5-inch NBA standard. High-end portable glass hoops may cost more, but the pro-performance, NBA-level quality, and excellent support make for a strong and highly durable product.
7. Eco-composite basketball goals are driveway champions, and a very cost-efficient choice for kids. Our options include shorter goal heights and adjustable height models that are perfect for anything from all-weather H-O-R-S-E to birthday party dunk contests.
8. For the youngest of future Yaos and Kobes, Lifetime Youth Basketball Goals are the next best thing to a growth spurt. They offer height adjustment from 5.5 to 7.5 feet, are weather-resistant, and virtually unbreakable.
9. Spalding is the official basketball goal manufacturer of the NBA, and they bring professional expertise to every detail. Pro-style NBA logo backboards and outstanding strength and durability are Spalding hallmarks. A limited 5-year manufacturer's warranty is offered on select Spalding hoops.
10. First team is the annual All-NBA honor that pro players strive to earn. First Team portable goals live up to their title. First Team's top-of-the-line portable systems are built to NCAA/NHSF standards, and come with limited lifetime manufacturer's warranties.
