Good to know:
To help children score baskets, we recommend fitting the unit with a height adjustment mechanism. The height of the hoop can be freely adjusted from 260 to 305 cm (1173550).
All basketball units are manufactured to the latest CEN standard (European standard). The hoops are screwed directly to the frame so that the backboards are not damaged by high loads.
What are the dimensions of a basketball court?
An official, FIBA-approved court is 26-28 m long and 14-15 m wide. The centre circle and the circles around the free-throw line have a diameter of 3.60 m. The free-throw line is 5.80 m from the base line and 4.60 m from the board. The three-point line is 6.25 m, even 6.75 m since 2010, from the centre of the hoop.
Good to know about wheelchair basketball:
Wheelchair basketball is a sport for people with disabilities and a sport that features in the Paralympics. It is played by 2 teams of 5 players. The target is for each team to get the ball into the hoop on the other side whilst preventing the opposing team from scoring baskets. The court is the same as a standard basketball court and the hoop height is also 3.05 m.
This basketball unit is perfect for wheelchair basketball.
