Adjustable stand, height, hoop, and backboard: What should you look for in a basketball system?

If you are looking at portable basketball systems, there are several things and features you should consider before purchasing one. The first, is — what will the basketball system be used for? Is this just for your kids, or do you want to use it for professional training? This might seem like an obvious answer, but it pays to consider this question before purchasing a basketball hoop set.

Do you need a basketball hoop stand for kids or professional use?

Will the basketball hoop be just for your own personal home use? Will it be for a school as part of the children’s physical education? Or will it be for more professional basketball training that you plan to use over your lifetime? The answers to these questions will massively affect the type of portable basketball hoop system you will need.

Choosing the right portable basketball hoop and accessories for kids

If the basketball hoop is for kids, you may want to consider adjustable height options, so that the backboard and net ring can be easier to reach when the kids are younger, but then can be raised as kids grow taller. That way the basketball stand system can be used for many years.

A portable basketball system is also popular for families, since you can move the basketball hoop it around or take it apart when you‘re moving homes.

For occasional, recreational use, you may get away with a basketball stand system that is lighter and perhaps slightly less durable. But if you are considering a portable basketball hoop that is likely to see a lot of use, you owe it to yourself to consider a heavier, sturdier, and more stable basketball hoop design.

Other important factors for basketball systems are the ability to adjust to the stand system as well as how easily it can be moved. You will want a basketball system that can be adjusted accordingly to suit your play or training needs.

In addition, you’ll want a system that can be moved conveniently to make the most of having a truly portable basketball stand system. An adjustable, portable basketball hoop will make playing basketball easy and convenient. 

Spalding and more: What is the best portable basketball hoop to buy?

The best portable basketball system to buy will depend on your training and needs. If you need a system that can withstand daily, heavy use, then the best system for you to buy will be one at the more durable end of the spectrum.

However, if you need one for occasional, personal use, then a less robust basketball hoop may be the ideal choice for you. While it might be tempting to look for for a hoop stand system at the top end of the range, this may prove an unnecessary cost if it’s a basketball system that exceeds your needs.

Likewise, if you do not need a basketball system with an adjustable height or one that can be moved easily, you may save money on versions that are slightly less advanced in terms of these features. But just as you may be tempted to go to the upper range of basketball systems to secure “the best,” do not be tempted to go the lowest range just to save money. Remember, the “best” system for you to buy is the one that best suits you and your training needs, whether you’re on the basketball court or just throwing shots after school.

How much does a basketball hoop set (stand system, ring, net, backboard, etc) cost?

Cost is, of course, an important consideration when buying a portable basketball system. Typically, the larger, heavier, and sturdier versions will cost more than the smaller, lighter basketball systems. Likewise, those with many additional features, ease of movement, and wide range of adjustability may cost more. Because prices vary greatly, it is a good idea to consider what you need and then thoroughly compare the prices of basketball systems.

What are the cheapest basketball hoop, backboard, stand options?

The cheapest basketball systems will have less portability, less adjustment capability, and will likely be lighter and less durable. The backboard may wear down quicker, and the net ring could potentially snap quicker. Additional accessories such as pole pads, hoops, and hoop parts may not be included.

If you do not plan on using the basketball system often, these less expensive versions may be better suited to you and your kids. But it pays to look around to make sure you are getting a decent quality basketball hoop and stand system.
