How is the Hoop backboard an innovation in the world of basketball backboards?
The Hoop innovation is exclusive to Decathlon. Kids and keen basketball players are always wanting to take a basketball basket on holiday or to the park with their friends. However, the whole point of a basket is that it is fixed (to a wall or on a stand). The hoop is a true revolution. It is light, compact and has two straps, meaning you can take it anywhere and attach it to any tree or post. The ideal backboard for having fun wherever you are, with friends or family!

It is the right size for the Hoop and means that any player, particularly smaller ones, can shoot from further away! The Wizzy balls range is designed to match the Hoops range so you can be completely coordinated!
