How to Install an In-Ground Basketball Hoop

A basketball court in your backyard will allow you to go anywhere, shoot baskets, and relieve stress. It will be a great way to help your child develop an interest in basketball.

It isn't difficult to install an in-ground basketball court. The entire process is time-consuming and labor-intensive. These are the steps you need to follow in order to have your own in-ground basketball hoop installed at home. 

Installation

A hole should be 36-48 inches in depth and 18 inches in circumference. The frost line in your area will determine the depth. These are the steps you need to follow in order to have your own in-ground basketball hoop installed at home. As you work at the pole's bottom, ask for help from family and friends to ensure that the post is straight.

To make the hole 6 inches deep, add gravel. Add a foot of dirt to the hole and tamp it down. Once you're sure the pole is perfectly placed at 90 degrees to the ground, and it is level, add concrete. If your basketball system is intended for heavy use, you may need to add more concrete.

You should not fill the entire hole with concrete. This will make it difficult to remove the pole in the future. To prevent water accumulation and rusting, you should leave a concrete dome at the pole's base.

Let the concrete sit for approximately 24-48 hours. Next, place the last part of the pole on top of the ground-fixed base. Attach the basketball backboard to the base and fix the hoop. Enjoy hours of excitement and fun!
