Goalsetter In-Ground Basketball Systems

Goalsetter’s In-Ground Basketball Hoops use the innovative, patented Ground-Hinge Anchor System. The main component is a square, 42″-long structural steel anchor designed to provide a strong foundation, superior to those that rely on the direct bury method or a J-bolt anchor. The Goalsetter Ground-Hinge Anchor also allows for the basketball system to be easily transported from one location to another. In the event of a family move, simply have a new ground anchor installed.

Goalsetter’s In-Ground Basketball Hoops feature their signature Height Adjustment Mechanism. This allows the family to easily modify the height of the hoop, depending on the age and ability of the players. The fully-tempered glass backboard are supported by 1 and 1/2″ structural steel H-frames, ensuring stability and a great ball response. Finally, thanks to Goalsetter’s corrosion-resistant paint process, you can rest assured knowing your hoop will look fantastic in the long run.

Delivery & Installation

Our experienced installation teams can install both in-ground and wall-mounted basketball hoops. Goalsetter in-ground basketball system installations require that you dig a 42” deep hole to cement in the anchor for the pole. This is unlike most basketball systems that only require an 8” J-bolt be installed. Best in Backyards provides 15 bags of cement along with a 42” steel anchor to complete the installation. With a 42” steel anchor that is cemented into the ground, you are guaranteed to have a basketball hoop that will never move, settle or sway. If for any reason you want to relocate the basketball hoop on the current property, or are moving to a new location, you can remove the pole from the anchor and install it at another location. Best in Backyards is trained in moving basketball systems, and offers relocation installation services for customers who have a Goalsetter in-ground system. Wall mount basketball systems can be installed on any surface both indoors and outdoors.
