Relive your playing days or let the kids practice on a system that duplicates the features of competition equipment used in nearly every college and high school in America. It takes a massive 6" square pole to mount this official sized competition TruGlass backboard and breakaway goal, which is directly mounted to protect backboard. At 42" x 72", the backboard has twice the surface area of most residential basketball systems. Let the action get competitive under the board, there’s a full 60" safe play area and a 1" thick pole pad protects to 6' height. Goal can be installed at any height down to 7 1/2' for players of all ages. The direct burry pole is designed for permanent installations. Optional competition-style DuraSkin padding covers the backboard’s lower edges and corners. No one offers a more competitive home court!
