Contender Series In-Ground Basketball Hoop

Among the mid-sized Goalsetter models is the Contender, a basketball hoop that offers even more upgrades than the Elite while still boasting an affordable price point. The Contender was borne of a customer request, and since then has become known for its proven performance. This model has a wider range of height adjustment capability, from 6′ to 10′. It also features a patented internal height adjustment mechanism, facilitated by an off-set pole that allows for protection from outside forces. Between the innovative interior components and the durable, long-lasting exterior, the Contender is a high quality hoop that your family will enjoy for years to come.
