Customer Reviews

Have you decided on the ideal location for an in-ground basketball system at your house? Lifetime’s Fusion system is constructed with break-resistant, pro-glass looking Makrolon Polycarbonate for great rebounding performance, and an easily adjustable backboard height ranging from 7.5 feet to 10 feet. This good-looking hoop is designed with a 3.5 inch round in ground basketball pole which requires cement and a recommended ground sleeve for permanent installation. This insures that your in ground pole will provide the ultimate in rigid stability; the greatest advantage of choosing an in-ground basketball pole. Like any in-ground basketball pole from Lifetime, this in-ground pole is designed with a powder-coated finish to resist rusting. If you’ve decided that an in-ground pole is the basketball system for you, you’ll enjoy Lifetime’s Fusion hoop. Major components made in the USA. Assembly required. Covered by a 5 yr. limited factory warranty in US and Canada.

For more information about assembly, read the Owner's Manual Sample.

We suggest using a Ground Sleeve to make installation easier and to allow for relocation of your in-ground basketball hoop at a later date if necessary.
