Basketball Goal vs Basketball Hoop?

Basketball goal and basketball hoop are two terms which are often used interchangeably. Our customers frequently ask us if there is a difference between basketball hoops and basketball goals. When it is time to shop for sports equipment, it is helpful to understand the terminology, after all. Technically, the goal or hoop refers to the orange rim that is mounted to the backboard, but in common language, the terms are used when people are referring to the complete sets that make up basketball systems.

Partnered with First Team Sports, we use the term basketball goals when referring to either complete basketball goal systems or the rims themselves. We offer a comprehensive line of made in the USA indoor and outdoor sports equipment: basketball backboard systems (wall mount basketball goals or on a post) for team sports, adjustable goals for kids, portable goals for indoor games and driveway outdoor play, and commercial basketball goals that can stand up to the most aggressive playgrounds. Our basketball buying guide and basketball goal pictures can help you understand the differences between the types of basketball equipment for sale. Call First Team today to get started!

Your Comments

I agree with Jeff from First Team, the goal or hoop as most people say is the actual iron rim that is bolted to the backboard. If you do a Google search for Basketball Goal, or Basketball Hoop, the Google results pages will display complete basketball systems. I think it’s safe to say, most basketball enthusiasts know the differences, as well as the terminology.
