Top Portable Basketball Hoops
We’ve spent time blogging about our gear (socks, shoes) and once you look good you need to be able to play. Of course, to do that… you need a hoop! Because of affordability I am looking at portable hoops only; you’re more than welcome to search for in-ground hoops ($400+)
Spalding 54” Angled Portable Backboard System w/ Starter Pack.: According to google this is their best seller and can be purchased for around $200 at Wal-Mart. Spalding products are durable, strong, and weather well. This pack is one of the best out there; easy to move as well.
Aosom 10′ Adjustable Height Indoor / Outdoor Portable Basketball Hoop: Much, much more affordable at just $142 or so, but this hoop reflects the price in its durability. The Aosom hoop doesn’t have as big of a backboard; it is also not as durable. It is nice to have wheels to roll easily around. Great hoop to shoot around and play small games on, but not a lot more.
Spalding NBA 68395R Portable Basketball Hoop with 54 Inch Polycarbonate Backboard: One of the more expensive hoops that I’m willing to put on here at $275, but portable and strong. Three poles make this hoop, adjustable from 7.5-10 feet, breakaway rim. Also has a free pole pad. If you know you’re going to be lowering/raising the hoop for dunks or for a youth to shoot.. This is the way to go.
Aosom 10′ Clear Acrylic Adjustable Height Indoor / Outdoor Portable Basketball Hoop B6-000: Another Aosom hoop, a little bit stronger/sturdier than the cheaper version. This one comes in around $170+. As I mentioned it’s sturdier, has a better backboard, and is more stable than the other hoop. Also has wheels to roll around and move when needed.
Spalding Vault 44″ Portable Basketball Hoop Blue/Orange: $200. Not like the other Spalding hoop posted a little above but reliable and strong. Another adjustable hoop from 7.5-10 feet. Features a breakaway rim, easy to adjust the rim and move the hoop. Blue/orange color theme so if you’re worried about looks as well, this could sway or push you away!
Lifetime Pro Courtside 48″ Portable Basketball System with Basketball: $185. Like most appears to be sturdy and strong. Doesn’t have some of the other features like the breakaway rim/adjustable. Will still be strong and fun to shoot on for hours.
Lifetime 1221 Pro Court Height Adjustable Portable Basketball System, 44 Inch Backboard: $110! $40 off on amazon right now and an adjustable hoop, sturdy, strong rim. Backboard is cheap but works for the price and especially for younger kids. If you have young kids and are working to get them to play; I would strongly consider this hoop because of the price and benefits!
Spalding NBA “The Beast” Portable Basketball System – 60″ Glass Backboard: Just kidding. $1000+. I mean if you can afford it, just click the link and see why you’d want it.
