“ Manufacturer: Sure Shot / Type: Basketball „
I bought this basketball ring for £19.99 from JD Sports shop around a years ago I just happened to see it on offer in the town shop window as I was passing and thought that as I have a large garden it would be great fun for the grandchildren and my kids to play with, even though they are grown up they still love this hoop.
These retail from £25 upwards to £34 depending on where you buy them from, so its good to shop around. They can be found on Amazon or from the Sure Shot site but you have to pay for postage if you buy online.
This comes boxed and you fit the net to the hoop, it is easy to assemble but then you have to have it fitted to the outside of a solid wall of the house or garage if you have one.
I had to get my hubbie to fit this for me as you have to drilll into the wall and secure it with four bolts that need drilling and securing properly into the wall as it just sits there outside and you don't take it down, but can remove the net in the bad weather so that it doesn't get damaged.
It is easy to fit to the wall and within 20 minutes this was fitted and the kids were out with their basket ball trying the shots and having fun.
The hoop is bright red and painted so that it is durable and suitable for outside and I have seen my kids jump and swing on the hoop when they think I'm not looking as it's secure tightly to the wall.
This is an 18" powder coated solid steel ring and weights 3.4 kg
I think this is great fun for all the family I have played with it lots of times, just practicing shots and keeping score with the kids, but when they all visit at once they play basketball outside together and it's nice to see and hear them having so much fun together.
I'd be happy to recommend this to you if you have the room outside to fit one.
The Sure Shot 277 Pro Image Flex Deluxe Ring Net Set has a heavier flex ring for home and school use.
