Take the durability of Classic Systems one step further with a thicker pole, deeper setback, and a chain net! These in-ground basketball goals are great for full-court play outdoors. The 4-1/2" OD galvanized steel post offers incredible stability and durability for the entire system. 4' setback is ideal for fast-paced play and gives players more space between the goal and the post. Double-rim goal and chain net rounds out its resilience during fast-paced institutional play.
Fan-shaped backboards are available with your choice of plain white or target-painted options, in 2 materials. Aluminum is tough and lightweight, while 12-gauge steel provides greater durability.
4-1/2" OD galvanized-steel post
Available with a fan-shaped backboard with or without a target in 2 options:
Aluminum, 54"W x 35"H
No Target, 215 lb system
With Target, 215 lb system
Steel, 54"W x 35"H
No Target, 240 lb system
With Target, 270 lb system
Includes post, backboard, heavy-duty double-rim goal, and 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.
