“My Kids and I *LOVE* the Pro Dunk Gold System!
I recently installed a 30′ x 30′ basketball court in my backyard complete with a 60″ adjustable Pro Dunk Gold b-ball goal (including the Rust Armor upgrade),  and I couldn’t be happier!  The whole process of installing the b-ball court and goal took about a month and included the following steps.
1) Get homeowner’s association approval for the b-ball court,
2) Mark the area for the court & clear out trees/shrubs,
3) Build up the area with field sand and compact the surface,
4) Add forms & rebar for the concrete surface,
5) Dig 3′ hole for pier (to hold b-ball goal post) and add form at the top,
6) Pour concrete & insert pier kit (includes 4 large j-bolts and a steel plate),
7) After waiting at least 3 days, install Pro Dunk Gold b-ball goal to the pier,
8) Add b-ball lines to the court (I used Ronan’s Pro Stencil Kit),
9) Build up the surface around the edges of the concrete surface using fill sand & bull rock,
10) Enjoy!
My kids and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product!  Having the ability to adjust the Pro Dunk Gold from 5′ to 10′ is a nice feature, especially for little kids.  My 11 year old son and his buddies enjoy lowering the goal occasionally and practice slamming the ball.  The Pro Dunk Gold system seems very sturdy, and I look forward to many years of enjoyment.

DIY Install

A Pro Dunk Hoops customer was kind enough to send in instructions on how he installed his Pro Dunk Gold basketball system.

1- Dig a larger hole: 21.5 x 21.5 (just to be extra safe) and bellowed it (I went through the sprinkler pipe)

2- Frame hole with 2×6 boards

3- Depth: 46 inches due to frost in Michigan (Recommended depth for region is 3.5 feet)

4. Place rebars in hole

5- Assemble the J-bolt and template

6- Adjust the rebar depth to have 1 foot below top surface

7- Rent a cement mixer (1 day at $40 from Home Depot)

8- Used 21.5 bags of 60 lb cement (4,000 psi) = 1,290 lb of cement

9- Anchored the J-Bolt assembly and the kids etched their initials on the concrete

10- Let dry for 3-5 days, assemble & play

11- Reroute sprinkler pipes & repair lawn…

 

Thanks Kazem!

Pro Dunk adjustable basketball goals have several features that allow you to calibrate it for your basketball court, even after the concrete has cured. In this blog post I’ll go over each of these features explaining how they make installation easier and more accurate.

One of the most frequent concerns I hear about when talking with customers about installation is levelness. (more…)
