Choosing A Basketball Stand

Whether you’re serious about playing or just want to shoot some hoops with friends. A basketball stand is an addition to your home you’ll enjoy long into the future.

Most are designed to use from childhood to adulthood. Making them perfect for kids who are serious about taking up a sport. Who knows? With plenty of practice, they could turn pro.

Choosing a basketball stand may seem straightforward, but there are a number of factors to consider before investing.


Location

There’s no point in buying a basketball stand if you don’t have anywhere to put it. The majority of stands are big and tall, so you’re going to need a flat, paved area with plenty of space.

Driveways are a popular option, but patios, courtyards and decking will also be okay. If you don’t have a flat, paved area to set up a basketball stand, a wall-mountable backboard could be a better option. All you need to set one up is some space on an outdoor wall.


Type

Our basketball stands come in three styles to suit different age groups and levels of play. They range from basketball stands for younger kids to basketball stands for experienced players.

All of our freestanding basketball stands have a base that can be weighted to prevent them tipping over. They also have wheels on the base to easily tilt and move around your garden.


Junior

Our junior stand is a perfect size for children aged 6 years and over. It’s the smallest stand in our collection and is height-adjustable from 5’5″ to 8′ tall, allowing kids to use it as they grow.

Even if they’ve shown little interest in playing basketball, a basketball stand is a worthwhile investment. Not only is it a fun sport to play, but it’s a great way to encourage active play.


Professional

Our professional basketball stand is a top choice for older children and experienced players. The stand is designed to NBA and BBL specifications with a durable steel frame, 45cm hoop and heavy-duty acrylic backboard for ultimate rebound action.

A pull-lever system allows you to easily adjust the height of the stand from 7′ tall to a match-standard 10′ tall. Start with the stand at a low height if you’re new to the sport, so it’s easier to shoot a basket. As your ability improves, you can raise it so it’s taller.

The stand also has some quality features to enhance play. A rebound board automatically returns the ball whenever you shoot a basket whilst a spring-back hoop allows you to slam-dunk like a pro. It truly is the crème de la crème of basketball stands.


Mounted

Perfect if you lack space to set up a stand, our wall-mountable backboard comes with everything you need to mount it to an exterior wall. It can be mounted at a lower height for smaller players or higher up for taller players, making it an extremely versatile option.

The backboard is made from durable weather-resistant polyethylene with a professional-sized 45cm steel rim. Choose from a black backboard or white backboard to suit your taste.
