About this deal

The base does a good job of keeping everything solid, especially when filled with sand, and you can bounce the ball hard off the backboard without worrying if the whole thing will topple over, like with some hoops I’ve seen. A recent survey found that it was the second most played sport, behind football, for 11-15 year olds; and that number looks like it will only keep on growing. Whether or not you want your portable hoop to be adjustable is definitely something to consider, and of course, having the option to be able to adjust the height does add cost to the system. The base when filled with water can be easily emptied or, given it isn’t that heavy can just be lugged about if you’re strong.

Polycarbonate is the cheapest option on entry-level hoops and is a fancy name for plastic – also referred to as Polyethylene.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The main ones are that changing the height entails more work than with a freestanding adjustable model, and then there is the noise of the impact of the ball against the backboard which will be heard inside the house if mounted on a main wall. Aimed at younger players who are just starting out, the height of this product can be adjusted from as low as 120cm, for kids as young as three to try, or for older children, the height can be set at up to 168cm. Up until now, Hoopsfix has been creating editorials, videos and podcasts to provide sorely missing coverage of the British game and its distinct culture and community. Some say that it looks great in the garden and that they haven't experienced any problems with it to date.

The nets are normally made from a strong nylon material, while the stands should be strong metals such as steel (and powder coated for extra protection) and the backboards a durable high-density polyethylene. Unlike conventional base tanks, the tank is not installed at the foot of the goal, so the foot does not get in the way when laying up shots. So as you go through my site you'll watch me document some of the professional garden installs I make as well as the major projects I take on at home. If you don’t mind giving the base a shot of Algae killer once in a while it’s fine and in my opinion more sturdy as the water weighs more by volume.His backboard will help to take some of the shock out of the impacts and reduce the noise and vibration felt in the house. My 13 year old enjoys shooting hoops and dunking (carefully) and the ring and backboard have been fine so far, but the plastic base split on the first day, and half the water leaked out making the base less sturdy. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). The only other gripe I have is that the material the base is made from isn’t up to the same high standards as the other parts of the set, and this will probably be one of the first things to show wear and tear, but spare parts are readily available from Hudora if that should happen.

This hoop and backboard comes with a 5 year warranty, which is reassuring, and to be fair the materials and construction did feel quite robust and durable. There is a good amount of overhang between the hoop and pole giving you space to operate, whilst the entire system is made from materials that won’t rust or be damaged by adverse weather.One or two negative reviews is normal, as quality control sometimes slips, but if there are a lot of people complaining about a particular thing, it’s probably best to avoid that product. Below, we go through each one, and give some information to help you make a better informed opinion. These parts are often where the manufacturers cut costs, and these can sometimes fail or break long before the main parts like the backboard and rim do. They are transparent, similar to tempered glass, giving it a much more professional look, however, they can pick up scratches over time. There was a few issues with quality a few years ago when I initially wrote this review but for the most part the seller has sorted these and now well deserves it’s place amongst the top picks.

For the netball enthusiast in your household, we've got all the netball equipment they could possibly need to practice at home and up their game. Forza has created four different-sized hoops on stands – choose from junior, senior, senior pro or elite, and tailor each one to your training. Each option is made using weather-resistant materials to ensure durability and long-lasting hoops, equipped with adjustable poles to suit your height, and are all portable featuring wheels on their bases. The high-quality design, made up of a 100 per cent steel base and 100 per cent polyethylene high-density board, provides a long-lasting hoop suitable for all weather conditions while looking very professional in its white, black and red colour scheme. However, Backboards made out of polycarbonate will likely discolor after long exposure to the sun and will develop ‘dead spots’ over time where the ball doesn’t bounce off it so well.As far as setup there really isn’t much to this – the biggest issue is deciding whether you want to fill the base with water or sand.
