What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height). If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them. For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m. After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets.
4
Should you weigh it down with water or sand?
Most basket bases can be weighted with water or sand (see product instructions).Sand is denser than water and so the same volume will be heavier: your basket will therefore be more stable (but harder to move). Water can also freeze in winter and break the plastic base if the temperature drops too low, or leak out through hidden cracks without you realising. We recommend weighing down your base with sand to be safer.
5
What precautions should you take in strong winds or storms?
To prevent any accidents or breakage in the event of storms or strong winds, we highly recommend laying the basketball hoop down on the ground. The bigger the board, the more it will catch the wind, particularly when it is in its higher positions. Don't take any risks. If you live in a very windy area, you can also add additional ballast to your basket's base.
6
How should you care for your basketball basket?
We recommend cleaning your basketball basket with a damp sponge and some soap. Rinse in fresh water. If your product has protective foam on the post, remember to store it inside in winter. We recommend using a cover to protect the backboard from rain and frost.
7
What ball should you use?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex. Baby basketball: size 1 to 3. Girls and boys under 10: size 5. Girls aged 10 and up, women, and boys aged 10 to 12: size 6. Boys over 12 and men: size 7.If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are the right materials.

Can the Tarmak basketball hoops and boards be used on public courts?
Our baskets are designed for private use (family, friends). They comply with French regulations (n°96-495 of 4 June 1996) and Portuguese regulations (decree 100-2003, amended by 82-2004). They are not designed for the heavy use associated with public and club courts. Club equipment must be regularly tested on site and requires safety authorisations.

Good only for casual players,
Used for 3 to 6 months
There are a few problems that I have faced while using this product.
Primarily, it is not sturdy. It moves about 4 inches backwards and then swings when the basketball hits the backboard. It implies that a person who has practised shooting in a sturdy system will find it a bit difficult to shoot in this one with the same accuracy as before and it is the same when a player used to shooting in this system tries to shoot in a proper court. It takes just about 30 minutes to adapt to it, but to some extent, it does ruin your skills. Whenever the ball hits the backboard, it makes an extraordinarily loud sound because of the lack of sturdiness.
Another problem that I have seen is that small kids keep pestering other players by asking them to decrease the height, even when they cannot shoot at any of the height options (my apartment had it installed so those kids have a right over it. Everyone might not face this problem).
I do not know much about the installation as the apartment management did the job.
I would conclude by saying that it is good for playing casually, but it is not satisfactory for professional games.
Response of the brand
Hello Sir

Thanks for your detailed feedback.  Appreciate you taking out the time for this review. This model is actually only for practise and not professional usage, and thus the material used in the board is not very sturdy. It is only sturdy enough for leisure usage.

We will still work with out Product Team to consider your kind inputs

Thank you
