Make the upgrade to the 78888 in-ground basketball system. This basketball hoop features a 54-inch acrylic backboard, a 4x4 square pole, and a break-away rim. The soft square pole shape provides greater stability in the ground compared to round poles. Acrylic backboards are ideal for home driveway basketball courts as they hold up much better to aggressive and abusive play. The Slam-It Pro rim holds up well to dunking and aggressive basketball play.

This system comes with a 5-year warranty from Lifetime Products. All steel parts of the system are powder coated to help the metal resist rusting. The 78888 also includes an all-weather white net. All major components of the system are Made in the U.S.A.

This product has a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

Simply hang onto the original packaging and contact us within 30 days of receipt if you are not satisfied with this product. We will have the item picked up at our cost and refund you in full. We are that confident you will love this product!

Great Product
Directions were fairly easy to follow. Competitive Edge is a great company and I did receive the product as ordered. I also purchased the 4" ground sleeve and this was a must for the type system (makes installation easier). I would highly recommend this system.

Lifetime 78888 Basketball System
Love this goal. Easy to put together. I like how the goal doesn't have a lot of decals all over it. Looks nice. My boys and ALL the neighborhood boys love playing on this goal. Looks well made and is SO easy to raise and lower. My 10 year old can do it himself. Arrived in perfect condition. Quick shipping! This was my first purchase from Competitive Edge and was very please with the service. We also purchased the ground sleeve as recommended by another reviewer, and we are glad we did

GREAT PRODUCT FOR THE PRICE
Nice and sturdy final product. Our family really enjoys playing basketball in the driveway using the lifetime goal. I shopped other products from other locations and this seemed to be the best value I could find. I Actually put the whole thing up on my own, no second set of hands.

Excellent In-Ground Basketball System
This product is exactly what I was looking for. The 4" square pole is sturdy enough for my teenage boys and their friends to use. The height adjustment is a simple one handed motion. It has been up for nearly 3 months and my boys use it almost everyday. The setup is definitely not a one person job due to the size of the system, but not overly difficult.

My kids love this hoop!
My kids love this hoop! My son (6 years old) loves playing on the lower heights, but the neighborhood boys like to raise it. I have been impressed with the quality of this hoop given how much time the neighborhood kids spend hanging on the rim. The rim is still tight (but forgiving for shooters) and the hoop remains as sturdy as they day I installed it. Its a great hoop!
