Basketball is one of the most widely played sports around the world. The game requires equipment such as basketball backboards, hoops, proper footwear, apparel and quality basketballs. A basketball backboard, otherwise known as basketball hoop, consists of a backboard, rim, net and support structure. It can be set up at homes and outside workplaces and provides an excellent opportunity for exercise while being a fun and competitive activity. The backboard is made up of either plastic or steel and professional ones use glass. They vary in sizes and come in rectangular shapes. The rims have an 18-inch diameter and are made of steel. The nets are usually made of nylon, while some of them are made of durable chain links. There are different types of basketball backboards available for you to choose from depending on the type of game played and the surface it will be played upon. Indoor hoops are wall-mounted hoops that include brackets for mounting and are used to make dedicated indoor courts. There are also freestanding basketball hoops that can be used indoors. Street and backyard hoops can be set up in driveways or streets to provide hours of fun and exercise with family, friends or neighbours. Small, portable plastic basketball backboards are also available for kids to have fun and practise their basketball skills. Pool-side hoops are designed to be placed at the edges of swimming pools, with the basket hanging over the water.
