Low Price Guarantee!

Portable basketball systems provide you with the flexibility of setting up and taking down your basketball court, and then setting up the court again wherever you need. Lifetime Products model 1529 features a durable 50-inch polycarbonate backboard, a large 31-gallon portable base, and a sturdy 3-inch round pole. Polycarbonate backboards are about 30 times stronger than comparably-sized acrylic backboards. The 31 gallon base can be filled with sand or water to help offset and stabilize the weight of the basketball system. The 3-inch round pole provides sturdy support as you play basketball.

With the adjustablility of the backboard, even very young players can begin learning to shoot the basketball. This system comes with a 5-year factory warranty from Lifetime Products. All steel components of this basketball system are powder coated, which helps the metal resist rusting.

This product has a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee.

Very good product
The directions were very clear and easy to follow. The only problem came with filling the base with sand. It was tedious and frustrating. I also wish that a cap for the backboard pole was provided. It is a haven for bees and wasps. Thank goodness for a plastic cap I had that fit. Overall, I good system.

Good, Quality Basketball Goal!
Good quality, easy to assemble. Took about 2.5 hours to assemble. My boys love it and have used it everyday since! Only drawback was trying to put the last bag of sand in the base. The fill holes are small and once you reach the fill point at the vertical angle, then you have to lay it down and work the last bit around with a stick to make room (volume) for the last bag. We used 7 bags of play sand from Lowes.

Great product!
We love the web site, comparative shopped and found this product to be the best quality with the most options for the money! We put the hoop and stand together as a family and have been playing ball ever since! It seems to be sturdy enough even to withstand the coastal winds.
