Zinc-coated, galvanized steel pole is extremely tough, making this outdoor basketball system a great choice for institutions seeking longevity. A 4’ setback ensures plenty of space for rebounding and layups. In-ground system is more stable than portable systems and stands firmly in place during all levels of play.
Double-rim goal mounts directly to the backboard for a strong, stationary connection. Choose from three backboard options to suit the needs of your school or rec program. Aluminum is tough, rustproof, and lightweight. Durable steel features a graffiti-resistant finish. Polycarbonate offers the best rebound and is able to withstand heavy use.
4-1/2" OD galvanized-steel post
Available with a rectangular backboard in 3 options:
Aluminum, 54"W x 39"H, 131 lb system
Steel, 60"W x 42"H, 320 lb
Polycarbonate, 54"W x 42"H, 300 lb system
Includes pole, backboard, front-mount double-rim goal with net
3½" Post: Perfect for light-institutional use. 3' setback.
4½" Post: More durable for continuous institutional use. 4' setback.
The setback (or rununder) is the distance from the post to the backboard, usually ranging from 3' to 4'. Longer setbacks increase player safety by reducing the risk of running into the post, but they also require more space for installation; shorter setbacks are best suited for smaller courts.
Rim & Board.
Single rims are best for light institutional use with no player-rim contact. Double rims are stronger and more durable for heavy use and dunking. Backboards are available in durable steel; lightweight and rustproof aluminum; or the glass-like feel of clear, unbreakable polycarbonate. Rectangular backboards offer the look and size of official indoor boards, while fan-shaped backboards are more compact for side or smaller courts.
