A ground sleeve is useful for installation of the basketball system if you think that you will need to remove the system at some point; examples: you are going to move soon, and you want to take the system with you, or you want to take the system down for part of the year.
A great training aid for baskteball shooting practice when shooting for the same position in front of the system is a basketball hoop chute.
Pole pads help protect players from direct impact with the pole of the system. The 0648 is a particularly thick pad, which cushions impact very well.
What is the difference between acrylic and tempered glass?
Acrylic is not as rigid as tempered glass, and tends to hold up better in more abusive conditions.
Do I need a ground sleeve to install this basketball system?
A ground sleeve's purpose is to allow you to remove the pole of the system out of the ground it you think you will need to do that. Common reasons for removal are moving or putting the system in storage during the winter. If you do not think you will need to do this, you do not need a ground sleeve.
Does the ground sleeve weaken the pole stability of the 90020?
The ground sleeve is a steel encasement that form fits the pole. At the top of the ground sleeve, after installing the pole, you will hammer in a wedge that will keep the pole from moving while in the sleeve. Stability with and without a ground sleeve is very comprable.
