Hi there, I am the PE teacher at Camulos Academy. I am looking to get in the ground basketball hoops put up in our playground. I have seen this on your website, SOCKETED HEAVY DUTY BASKETBALL SYSTEM (SCHOOLS) Does this price include fitting? I will look forward to your reply, Regards Stuart Reeve LSA & PE Co-ordinator

Stuart Reeve

Hi Stuart,

Thank you for your question, the price that you are seeing for the socketed basketball system is the price for supply only.
if you email they will be able to send across some general instructions for installation. It is a fairly simple system to install, if you have groundsman or builders currently working they should be able to do this for you.

If you have any questions please do let me know and I will do my utmost to help.

Many thanks,

Does this pole fit into a tennis post fixture? I have a tennis court and wonder if I can just remove the tennis court post and put this into it without further adjustment.

Scott Sandford

Hi Scott, thanks for your question. Tennis post sockets are usually made to fit 76mm tennis posts, whereas the smallest basketball unit measures 80mm so it would only fit if you had a bit of excess room in your socket. Please email if you require any further help. Many thanks, Dan.
