What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height).
If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them.
For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best.
Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m.
After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets.
Should you weigh it down with water or sand?
Most basket bases can be weighted with water or sand (see product instructions).
Sand is denser than water and so the same volume will be heavier: your basket will therefore be more stable (but harder to move).
Water can also freeze in winter and break the plastic base if the temperature drops too low, or leak out through hidden cracks without you realising.
We recommend weighing down your base with sand to be safer.
What precautions should you take in strong winds or storms?
To prevent any accidents or breakage in the event of storms or strong winds, we highly recommend laying the basketball hoop down on the ground.
The bigger the board, the more it will catch the wind, particularly when it is in its higher positions.
Don't take any risks.
If you live in a very windy area, you can also add additional ballast to your basket's base.
How should you care for your basketball basket?
We recommend cleaning your basketball basket with a damp sponge and some soap. Rinse in fresh water.
If your product has protective foam on the post, remember to store it inside in winter.
We recommend using a cover to protect the backboard from rain and frost.
What ball should you use?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex.
Baby basketball: size 1 to 3.
Girls and boys under 10: size 5.
Girls aged 10 and up, women, and boys aged 10 to 12: size 6.
Boys over 12 and men: size 7.
If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are the right materials.

I waited months for this to return to stock after doing a lot of research online and i am so happy i waited. This is a seriously good piece of kit, very easy to use and very robust. The only negative i have is the the nuts used to secure the backboard have to be tightened by hand and its not very easy to get a good grip to tighten them and if they aren't tight enough the backboard tilts slightly. Its even more difficult to remove them if needed. Apart from that its great.

Defective out of the box the ratchet mechanism binds up and will not raise the hoop. Was hoping for better from a £500 basketball hoop. Customer service trying to resolve the issue shocking and slow.
