Spring has sprung, the sun is shining and
there's nothing quite like being in the great outdoors when it's nice out. As
an adult, you may want to chat with friends as you sit in some shade or have a
beer while grilling, but your kids - they want to be active!
One of the easiest ways to ensure your kids don't sit around playing video games all day is to install a basketball hoop . Your children can shoot hoops for hours on end and you can even join them. Just be sure to stretch, old man! You don't want to limp into the office on Monday with a pulled hamstring.
The Problem with Portable
Many families get the idea to buy a basketball hoop and head to their nearest retail giant to grab a portable basketball hoop. While these basketball goals are alright and we can help you put a portable hoop together, there are a few problems with portable hoops. The main ones include:
· Breaking easily
· Being unsuitable for adults or older children
· Tipping over easily, especially in a storm
· Being easy to steal, if in the front yard
A portable basketball goal is okay for small children or beginners, but it's not ideal for teenagers or adults. Additionally, a portable goal doesn't add to the curb appeal of your home whatsoever. Many potential home buyers see it as a negative.
Another common basketball hoop installation option is a combination system. This type of hoop attaches to a wall or garage. While these hoops are stable, the players run the risk of running into the wall or garage. Furthermore, the damage to a home can be costly with this type of hoop.
Professional Basketball Hoop Installation
If you really want to surprise the kids and add a little value to your home, then an in-
ground basketball hoop installation is what you need. If you'd like to install a basketball hoop in-ground, it's best to hire a professional. Doing it yourself would require some science, math, big muscles and a lot of concrete.
While some jobs are okay to give a go yourself, we urge you not to when installing a basketball goal in the ground. We've seen some crooked hoops in the past. If you're adding concrete to your backyard, then a professional is a great idea.
