Question about Lifetime Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

My basketball hoop broke and I have a pole cemented in the ground. Can you buy just the hoop/backboard itself and attach to the pole or do I have to cut the pole and start over?

We've had a permanent cemented basketball hoop in our yard for 40 years and recently the hoop(was adjustable) broke and won't go up so it's no good except for shooting around. I want to keep a hoop in the yard so what are my options? Do I need to cut down the pole and start over? Or do they sell the hoop/backboard attachment that you can attach to the already grounded pole? I'd like to buy just a new hoop/backboard and use the existing pole but not sure I can find one without buying the pole too!

Sorry I know nothing about basketball but it seems a crying shame to cut down the pole even if you can't find a replacement hoop and board.

I have faced many similar things and I find remembering the wise old saying "in order to get the right answer it is important to first ask the right question"...

I suggest you ask around those who should know such things - the coach at the local schools, local teams. If you don't get satisfaction then why not ask your local repair shop or fabricator if they can make what you need at a reasonable cost.

If not, take off the supports, straighten them, and scab weld on some reinforcing rods to keep them from bending.

I have a lifetime basketball goal with a broken backboard. My son threw a rock threw it. Can I get a replacement glass? Is it easy to change?


You NEED to get a replacement piece from the manufacturer. You could get a piece of lexon from home depot but it will cost you a bit.

We need help in finding out how deep to cement our pole into the ground. We do not have the instructions,as we bought it from someone who had only buried it in the dirt. Thank you! Karen


Karen, for a basketball goal 24 to 30 inches deep will be fine and be sure to use sacrete with rock in it. You can level the pole and pour the sacrete in dry and tamp the dry cement with a shovel handle os something until it firms up and pour water in on top and it will seap down and cement will set up.
