Just what I needed
We have been playing on it everyday since it came. The instructions were clear, but some exploded diagrams would have saved time. The product is sturdy and well made. I not only filled it with water, but also placed 150 lbs of sand on top of the base. While all of the neighbors goals went down during a recent windstorm ours hardly budged. Highly recommended!
