Basketball Backboards, Systems and Rims

Ready to shoot some hoops? Unlike some other sports, basketball is pretty easy to set up at home. While there may not be the space - or the money - to create a full basketball court in the backyard, the front driveway can work just as well for a two-on-two match-up, or even some shooting practice. All that's needed is a solid, level surface, a hoop and a basketball. So, what should buyers look for when buying the equipment needed for backyard basketball?

Buying Basketball Backboards, Systems and Rims

Whether creating a backyard basketball set-up, or something a bit more professional, there are certain factors that should always be taken into consideration. First and foremost is placement. Setting up in the driveway may mean all that's needed is a basketball hoop or a basketball backboard. This can be fixed to a wall, if there is sufficient space. Alternatively, there is the freestanding basketball system, which includes a base, an adjustable stand, a backboard and a hoop. With this set-up, there is the option of a portable or an in-ground system. An in-ground system will require installation, and of course, it cannot be moved from place to place as a portable system can.

Next, look at backboard material. Graphite and polyethylene backboards are designed for young children, while acrylic backboards are ideal for beginner or intermediate players. For more serious players, polycarbonate backboards provide better durability and the strength to withstand more aggressive play.

As for backboard size, this also varies according to the level of player. A 44" backboard works well for kids, a 48-50" backboard is better for teens, while aggressive players may prefer the large 54-60" and even regulation-sized 72" boards. Lastly, look at height adjustment. With a full basketball system, the hoop should raise and lower quickly and easily from 7.5 to 10 feet. Ready to buy?
