Spalding Inground Basketball Goals - 88365 54 inch Acrylic Backboard.

Sorry, no Canada shipments for this product.


The Spalding 88365 acrylic 54 inch backboard in ground system provides many institutional grade features at a fraction of the cost. This model provides you the sturdiness of 4x4 inch square post at the price range of a 3.5" round post. The acrylic backboard material provides a superior rebound to traditional plastic based backboards. Also, this system comes with a backboard pad for added stability and protection against collisions. Just about anyone can have fun using this system by using the U-Turn lift mechanism, which allows you to adjust the rim height anywhere from 7.5 ft. all the way up to regulation height, 10 ft.


Includes the manufacturer's warranty from Spalding - 1 year on all parts but the backboard; 5 years for the backboard.

5 out of 5 stars awesome goal
by homerun from Tallahassee, FL on 1/4/2014
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
this is an awesome setup for the price but you must take the time to install it correctly. After ground sleeve is set in concrete, assemble 3 piece Square pole put back and ground sleeve and run Rebar all the way through bottom to top just short of bolt holes. This makes for a much stiffer pole. Follow directions carefully. I used exactly 1,040 pounds of concrete. 13 eighty pound bags. Rent a portable mixer believe me you will be glad you did! when done properly this unit has a very professional feel to it. My son loves it.

I ordered two of the in-ground systems and one of the backboards were cracked when I opened up the box. Customer service was not open on Saturday when I called,but I left a message. I hope they will resolve this quickly. (Updated on 3/25/2013.)

4 out of 5 stars Broken in Box
by CHKT from Port Allen, LA on 1/14/2013
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
backboard came in cracked to 2 places. Called customer service which in turn called Spalding to get it replaced and was told they are on back order and it will be mid Feb. before it will be shipped. I know its not Competitive Edge's fault but not happy with the delay.
