How do I select the correct portable basketball system for my facility?

One the most important things to consider when making a purchase of portable basketball equipment for your facility is the space that your facility has to properly house such a unit. Measure the distance from the out of bounds line of your court to the nearest wall or obstruction. This dimension is the amount of space you have to work with and is known as the facility footprint. Knowing this dimension will make your job much easier to be able to find the correct portable basketball system. Another important thing to take into account is the backboard position on a regulation court is positioned 4 feet into the playing surface of that court room the out of bounds line. You'll need to choose a system that has a long enough boom to position the backboard 4 feet onto the playing surface beyond the out of bounds line while at the same time the base of the unit is small enough to fit between the out of bounds baseline and the nearest wall or obstruction.
