Just read below, determine what goal is best for you, and use our easy search technology at the top of the page to find the right goal for you or your institution!
Inground Basketball Goals
In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground in most cases unless you install with a ground sleeve, so be sure to choose an ideal location. In-ground systems tend to be more rigid and take up less space than portables. Plan on spending approximately $15-30 on concrete and waiting 72 hours for the concrete to dry.
Portable Basketball Systems
A portable basketball system relies on a ballast system for stability. It will take up more space than an in-ground. The portable base typically rolls on wheels, allowing players to position the basketball system in the desired location. Simply assemble, fill the base and play basketball games.
Wall or Garage Mount Basketball Goals
The Wall Mounted Unit offers flexibility for the player who has no place for a pole mounted system. A Wall Mounted Unit is comprised of a backboard and a rim. The wall mounted hoop system can be attached directly to a roof or wall.
Institutional Basketball Goals
Institutional or commercial basketball goals are portable, in ground, or wall mount basketball goals designed for use in a gymnasium, field house, playground, or recreational complex. Many options to choose from with durability and extended warranty a key on our systems marked for institutional basketball play.
Portable basketball goals come in every shape, color and size imaginable. Portable goals are great purchases for basketball enthusiasts since most goals break down to store in the winter months. You can also easily roll portable goals to your desired location to play. When searching online or going to a retail store, finding the right goal can be an intimidating and daunting task. We want to help you choose the right goal for your specific basketball needs. Each portable goal is unique and caters to specific basketball needs. By selecting a hoop you are most comfortable with, you will get your money's worth and spend countless hours of perfecting your game.
The first thing you want to figure out is who will be playing on the basketball goal. Different systems are designed for different types of players. The second thing you want to figure out is if you want your goal to be fixed height or adjustable height. Most portable goals are offered with adjustable height. They vary, but most will lower to 6'6" and go up to 10 feet. The next thing you want to figure out is how much space you have to put the goal. Different goals have different dimensions for their base and the reach. The reach is the distance from the pole out to the backboard. Next you need to consider the size of the backboard. They range from 48" to a full size 72" backboard and are offered in acrylic glass or tempered glass.
There are three categories of portable goals - home goals, premium home goals, and commercial goals. Home goals can be found in any sporting goods store and range in price from 200-500 dollars. These goals are usually filled with sand or water at the base for ballast and have two or three piece metal poles and acrylic backboards. Although they can satisfy beginner players, most basketball enthusiasts that initially purchase home units ultimately end up upgrading to a more stable, durable goal. Home units usually have a lot of movement from the backboard and rim when playing. The backboards are usually very thin acrylic and do not offer a "true" bounce. These goals are also not designed for dunking or hanging on the rim and can be a hazard for teenagers that will inevitably lower the goal and try this feat.
Institutional customers require special pricing when buying large volumes. Some instances require net terms and sometimes there are bidding protocols that must be complied with. We understand your needs and address all of these issues and more at Just Basketball Goals.
