Recommendations on portable basketball hoops

    After having my old in-ground, rotting basketball hoop torn out, I am replacing it with a portable system. However, I am overwhelmed with choices for a new hoop. I'm look for something sturdy, but relatively painless to put together. At this point, I'll accept suggestions in any price range. Any suggetions? Thanks.

    Curious, why not another in-ground? I'm really happy I went with in-ground at my house.

    Mine is something like this:


    It's about 10 years old and it has held up pretty well. I filled the base with sand, but you can use water too, I think.

    I'd give you mine, but the shipping cost might be prohibitive.

    We end up having family parties with some frequency, so we want something we can roll to another spot so the kids can play, and the usual court is filled with aunts and uncles.

    I have a similar hoop. Mine is filled with a mix of water and antifreeze. It's about 15 years old and is going away after I drain the anti-freeze. Rusted badly and the time has come. The front rollers make it easy to move.

    My neighbor has an in-ground Goalrilla. Those are nice for a fixed hoop.
