44 in. Portable Poolside Basketball Hoop


Summer fun doesn’t get any better than a basketball hoop for a swimming pool! This basketball hoop for a swimming pool can easily adjust to six different heights between 4ft and 6.5ft using a telescoping height adjustment feature. Lifetime’s basketball hoop for pools has a portable base which is filled with sand or water for stability. No concrete installation required. Water is easier to manage as far as filling, moving, and draining the base. Sand provides more rigidity and is more suitable if you want your system to withstand higher winds, aggressive play, and leaking. Lifetime’s basketball hoop for pools is made of our patented high-impact polyethylene (HDPE) plastic and powder-coated rust resistant finish. Take the fun of swimming to the next level with our Lifetime basketball hoop for a swimming pool. Made in the USA from US and imported parts. Full assembly required. Covered by a 5 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada.

Poolside, 44 in. Impact is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY - UNLESS YOU WANT RUST IN YOUR POOL I bought this item from Sam's Club in May 2016 based on the excellent reviews and a 5 year warranty. It turns out rust is not included with the warranty. You do NOT want to buy this item as it has started to rust and rot in just 1 year. The kids are very disappointed and I cannot recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service Grandparents bought this for the kids but because of living in different states they didn't get for 3 months and when they did the closed box was missing all the hardware I called no questions asked and they shipped out to me the next day that's awesome way to stand behind your company name great job

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Assembly instructions not clear Included assembly instructions are unclear - most likely will have to return the item because of that. Don't understand why lifetime has not posted a assembly video on youtube so you can see the assembly start to finish before you make mistakes and have to undo what you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poolside basketball hoop This Lifetime poolside basketball hoop was pretty easy to assemble.  Made a couple mistakes but figured it out quickly.  My kids love it (ages 11, 11, 11, 12).  It's sturdy and the backboard design is nice. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 44 IN. PORTABLE POOLSIDE BASKETBALL HOOP We have been enjoying this product for about four years. It has been great entertainment for my grand kids and friends as well. We were in need of replacing some parts and the company shipped us the parts at no cost. Wonderful customer service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust problems I had this for two seasons and the bottom of the main post rusted out completely. I had to throw it away. Very poor design feature. The hoop had some rust but not like the bottom. Can’t recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting Hoop We have this hoop at my mother's pool. We have had it for about 10 years and it has held up great. We have played many basketball games over the years. I like the blue color scheme as well.

Ask a Question

I purchased this product a few years ago and have absolutely loved it but now the support pole is so rusted that it's leaning forward and will give out any day now, so product is dangerous and unusable. I see that it has a 5 year warranty, can i replace?

What's the difference between the poolside 1301 and 1306?

Asked by: asette
The only difference between the two models is the type of backboard each has. Model 1301 has an impact style backboard and model 1306 has a polycarbonate Makrolon style backboard.
