How do I find the model number of my SPALDING® basketball system? For help finding your systems model number, visit our interactive manual finder. In-ground – There is a three digit number on the front of the backboard, to the right of the rim. This set of numbers will identify your system.
The adjustment cylinder has a loop at the bottom that receives a removable crank handle. Insert the hooked end of the crank handle into the adjustment loop. Then turn crank handle clockwise to raise rim height, counterclockwise to lower.
Simply place a level on the sides of the pole to check it for levelness. You can loosen the top nuts slightly and adjust the bottom nuts to move the system up or down on the corner which needs leveling. When the system is level, simply tighten all nuts against the pole system.
There is a three (3) digit number on the front of the backboard, to the right of the rim. This set of numbers will identify your system.
You can find your model number on the warning sticker of your basketball system. This is placed on the pole or under the rim.
Have one person climb the ladder and place one end on the tape measure at the front tip of the rim so it is even with the TOP side of the rim. Drop the tape measure straight down to the playing surface to check the distance. The tape measure should read 10 feet for regulation basketball, typically ages 11 and older.
Ways to secure the basketball goal include: filling the base with water, sand, base gel or using a weighted base anchor system. Adding water to the base is as simple as hooking a hose to the base hole. This is a cheaper and easier option than sand.
This is a light weight and strong basketball height adjustment unit with a light weight backboard and ring. Suitable for indoor use to reduce the height of the ring for youth basketball practice. It has a polycarbonate backboard and a 203 ring.
It is the 60” goal in the GSc Series and provides everything you love about a Goalrilla, from durability to excellent playability. The 60” x 36” tempered glass clearview backboard is supported by welded wide-span board arms.
One-piece pole – The Goaliath utilizes a two piece pole system vs. the Goalrilla one piece pole system. A two piece pole system does not allow for dunking or aggressive play. Over time the two piece pole will start to lean and cannot be fixed.
Spalding is an American sports equipment manufacturing company. It was founded by Albert Spalding in Chicago in 1876 as a baseball manufacturer, and is today headquartered in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The code found on the card that comes with your basketball hoop is your Serial Number. Please enter that code below in the Serial Number field.
American basketball leagues at all levels traditionally use single and double digits from 0 to 5 (i.e. 0, 00, 1–5, 10–15, 20–25, 30–35, 40–45, and 50–55).
Choose the same number as your favorite athlete: Most players have a favorite in the big leagues they look up to both on and off the field. If you have a favorite big leagues player, choosing the same number as them is a great way to pay them tribute.
The first hoop consisted of a peach crate attached to a ten-foot-high railing and players aimed a ball into it. There was no “basket ball” yet, per se. The game was the brain child of one school-aged Canadian boy in the latter half of the nineteenth century.
The top of the hoop is 10 feet (3.05 m) above the ground. Regulation backboards are 6 feet (1.83 m) wide by 3.5 feet (1.07 m) tall. All basketball rims (hoops) are 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter.
The rim itself is made of a 5/8” | 1.6 cm steel diameter steel rod that is formed into a ring with an inner diameter of 18” | 45.72 cm. Basketball nets are hung from the bottom of the rim with lengths between 15”-18” | 38.1-45.7 cm. Basketball rims are mounted 10` | 3.05 m from the court floor.
All in-ground Goalrilla goals are assembled using an anchor kit system that allows you to relocate the goal if you move homes. The first step in this process is to purchase a compatible anchor kit system.
Points are scored by getting the ball through a hoop called `the goal` or `the basket`, and the team scoring the most points wins.
Rim: The orange ring from which the net hangs. Can also be called the goal or hoop. Options include the competition breakaway steel rim, heavy duty or recreation flex goal, and the fixed rim.
Chain basketball net have way more advantages comparing to nylon ones. Do not think twice if you need an outdoor net. They simply last way longer and zinc plating adds maximum durability. In most cases they outperform any type of nets, from cheap polyester to nylon.
3×3 basketball is played on half court with just one hoop. There`s a rectangular area (5.8mx4. 9m) under the hoop called the key and its outer edge parallel to the baseline is called the free throw line. How many players are in one team of 3×3 basketball?
Q: Can you hang on the hoop? A: No, we do not recommend hanging on the hoop for your safety.
Therefore, I recommend (and we recommend in our instructions) to use sand. Sand is denser and heavier, and filling the base with sand creates a much more stable pole and backboard. Some of you may be concerned that using sand makes the system extremely heavy to move. You are right, it does.

My basketball hoop broke and I have a pole cemented in the ground. Can you buy just the hoop/backboard itself and attach to the pole or do I have to cut the pole and start over?
ANSWER : Sorry I know nothing about basketball but it seems a crying shame to cut down the pole even if you can’t find a replacement hoop and board.

I have faced many similar things and I find remembering the wise old saying “in order to get the right answer it is important to first ask the right question”…

I suggest you ask around those who should know such things – the coach at the local schools, local teams. If you don’t get satisfaction then why not ask your local repair shop or fabricator if they can make what you need at a reasonable cost.
