How long does it take to put a basketball hoop together?
How long does it take to assemble a basketball hoop? Professional hoop installation typically takes about 2 to 4 hours depending on the difficulty of the ground and the state of your property.
Where should a ground basketball hoop be placed?
Around 20 feet of paved surface would be a decent amount of room to install a hoop with enough overhang so that you’re not running into the pole while having enough space for a regulation foul shot of 15 ft. Overhang, the distance from the front of the backboard to the front of the pole, should ideally be about 4 feet.

Is a 54 inch backboard big enough?
Backboard sizes vary in width from 48” wide all the way up to 72”, but for the sake of regular game play we recommend choosing backboard no smaller than 54” wide. Anything narrower than this measurement won’t allow the player to perform bank shots at all!
What direction should a basketball court face?
Full courts should be oriented the same as tennis courts, north/south on the long axis, having a basketball unit on the north and south side.
