Take the competition from the hardwood to the pool with the Lifetime 1301 poolside basketball hoop. Equipped with a 44-inch Impact backboard and a classic 18-inch rim, the hoop provides hours of backyard fun for kids and adults alike.


The poolside hoop is height adjustable from 4 to 6.5 feet.
The backboard is made of blow-molded, high-density polyethylene, with a design that rebounds well while holding up to bricks and bad bounces. The rim is also sturdy, with a 5/8-inch solid steel frame, 1/2-inch steel braces, and a 50-gram net. And should the game get a little too easy or hard, you can adjust the hoop to a more accommodating height. The hoop--which sits a top a two-piece, 3-inch-diameter powder-coated steel pole--adjusts from 4 to 6.5 feet.

Best of all, the poolside hoop is easy to move, so you can roll it wherever it fits best. Just fill up the 27-gallon heavy-duty base with sand or water and roll it to your desired location. The 1301 poolside hoop carries a five-year limited warranty.

Nice hoop, on lowest setting standing in pool I can barely touch the rim, Im 6' 1" . Would be nice to be able to adjust it a little lower for small kids. besides that it is great.

The overall construction of the item is good upon first impressions. I have had the BAsketball set for a few years now and it is garaged when not in use in the Winter. The metal pole and actual steel basketball hoop are rusting horribly. You have to be careful for staining on pool deck because of the large abmounts of dripping rust. The powdercoating finish not a lifetime poroduct. This is occuring in a regular pool and not caused by a salt based pool.

I would not purchase this product again for the money and would look for something else.

Nice hoop for a very reasonable price. Very sturdy and backboard/rim feel pretty solid. Lower height option would be nice, but this one looks and feels better than the others available imo.

Based on other reviews having problems with rust, I sprayed all metal parts with several coats of clear rustolium spray paint after assembly. No issues thus far but will come back and update after more time has passed.

*****UPDATE*****
Taking 2 stars off after just TWO WEEKENDS of moderate use. While the hardware i coated with several layers of rustolium have held up well, the rim is beginning to rust in several areas (mainly along the base of the rim and each of the net hooks). The thought did not occur to me to repaint the ENTIRE rim. I'll try to delay the inevitable by using a few more cans of rustolium, but based on current rate, would only expect this thing to last 1-2 seasons MAX.

Love the final product but directions were not well written and it was a bear to put together.

It is also very heavy so I needed another person to help toward the end when securing the rim and backboard.

I had relatives stay with us from out of town, they had three boys and they played with it all day long. Very sturdy, great for around the pool. A little tough to put together but well worth the end result.

this is a very nice product, instructions to put together get a little confusing b/c they make it sound like there is 3 tubes, but there is only 2...it will take 2 people to put together, very nice product, metal hoop, big backboard, though the backboard is a little dead b/c not alot of support behind it, but overall a very nice product, now the test will be how it stands up to the florida sun and a salt system pool, i bought it b/c it says 5 year warrantee on everything, so as soon as it all starts rusting in 3 years i will send all those parts back...time will tell, but right now this is a much better product then anything that doesnt come w/a true sized metal rim

this is a f/up...well the hardware is already starting to rust, guess i need to go buy galvanized hardware...

about 2 yrs old now, all metal parts are totally rusted and falling apart and into my pool...called the company and they are sending me all new metal parts, at least that is what i was told...though they said rust was not covered under the warrantee so that is nice of them, but for $150 this thing should last longer than two years, the goal at my driveway has been there 10 years and i spent less money on it....

This is a wonderful, very functional product. We had been looking for poolside basketball that used a full size rim and this fit the bill. It is extremely easy to put together - our 14 year old did it himself, needing help only when it was time to put the backboard on the stand, and it was up and ready in about a half an hour using the included directions. He then filled it with water and he and his sister played there first game of many. The height is adjustable, a really great feature. It functions well at any height and can be adjusted to the size of those playing. It has sat poolside for several months now and gotten plenty of water from pool splashes and sprinkler over spray and it still looks in great shape. I plan to bring this stand in during winter just to prolong the life, but I probably do not have to as it appears to be weathering the harsh pool chemicals and our very hard water quite well. Not to mention that the hot sun has not caused any problems with any of the finishes. The item is easy to move around as the wheels function very well.

This is the real deal. We were looking for a legitimate water basketball net for our pool, and this was a bulls eye. It is built like a regular outdoor net. It has heavy materials. Very sturdy. It is not a flimsy plastic toy that will break in a season. We have a Lifetime net in our driveway that has lasted over 10 years. That one gets used a lot, and it is still going strong. This is why we bought this product. We expect to use this water basketball net for years to come. It is taller than other nets, so be aware of that. For smaller kids, this might be an issue. It is hard to dunk on because of its height. Because it is well built and heavy, it can be a bit difficult to move. Once you find a spot for it, that will probably be where it will be for the season. If you are looking for a sturdy product that seems like it will last a long time, this is it. If you are looking for a pool toy that the kids can move around easily, this is not for you. This is an update on the review - In looking at the net that is attached to the backboard, there is rust developing. The rust is also present on the rim away from the backboard. This is a problem because this product is designed to get wet. We have had this product for less than one season, and it is apparent that rust will be a problem. It seems as though this should have been something the manufacturer paid a lot of attention to. Still a sturdy product, but with the rust, I'm not sure how durable it will be.
