48 in. In-ground Basketball Hoop


If you’ve decided to invest in a permanent inground basketball hoop, the Shatter Proof Fusion inground basketball hoop is a great no-break, look-great hoop that you’ll enjoy for many years to come. The Makrolon™ polycarbonate playing surface of this inground basketball hoop provides superior rebounding performance and a pro-glass look you’ll love, as well as our Slam-It® Rim with spring-back action. This backboard is easily adjustable with the touch of a broomstick.

Our inground basketball hoops require cement and a recommended ground sleeve for permanent installation which gives you the obvious advantage of ultimate rigid stability. All of Lifetime’s inground basketball hoops are weather resistant to rusting, chipping, and cracking. Inground basketball hoops are a great investment in year round fun for the whole family.

Assembly & Manuals


Ask a Question

The instruction manual says to use "at least" 8 80-lb bags of ocnrete, but the instructions only account for 6 (5 1/2 for base, 1/2 for filling pole). Is there a typo?

Asked by: JimBob
It takes 6 bags if you dig the hole to the exact dimensions specified. We have found that the hole varies in size, depending on who digs it, we list 8 bags to allow for human error.

Do you sell just a pole for this backboard?  Our pole broke at the ground (it was very old and rusted) and we need to replace it.  Thanks
