Changing a portable basketball hoop to an in-ground system is a weekend project that will likely take about 8 hours of actual work time. Lay the portable basketball hoop on the ground in order to dismantle the rim and backboard from the pole. This will make it lighter and easier to cut and move.

  • In this manner, should I fill my basketball base with sand or water?

    Sand is about 45% denser than water, which increases the system's stability making it more difficult to tip the system. Water is significantly easier and cheaper than filling with sand. • Water can freeze and if you live in a cold region, the water may possibly crack your base.

    How many sandbags do I need for a basketball hoop?

    Most portable basketball goal systems have a 35-gallon base. Purchase 10 bags of 50-pound sand bags from a home-supply store if your base is 35 gallons. Adjust the amount of sand you purchase if the base holds more or less than 35 gallons. Many fill their bases with water.

    The most clear disadvantage of a portable basketball stand is their propensity for toppling over easily. Whether from an attempted dunk or simply a gust of wind, the hoops pose a serious risk when they come down. Many children are injured, some fatally, when basketball hoops fall on top of them.

    How much does it cost to install in ground basketball hoop?

    On average, installation will cost around $450.00 for an in-ground system if you have it professionally installed. This includes two trips, labor and materials. Roof and wall mounted basketball systems will cost less because there are no material costs and assembly can be done in only one trip (no concrete).

    What size backboard do I need for a driveway?

    The Backboard
    A good rule of thumb is to choose a backboard size based on the size of your playing space. If you've got a home court or a large driveway, go for 72” - 60” backboards. If you're looking for a goal to put in a one-car drive way, shoot for the 54” - 44” range.
