How do you fix a basketball backboard to the wall?
The hardware required to mount your basketball hoop set will depend on the wall where you plan to hang it. Ask a professional if you're not sure. If you want your hoop to be at regulation height, the rim should be at 3.05m. We also recommend that you never hang from the rim to prevent weakening the mounting system.
What ball should you use?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex. Baby basketball: size 1 to 3. Girls and boys under 10: size 5. Girls aged 10 and up, women, and boys aged 10 to 12: size 6. Boys over 12 and men: size 7. If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are the right materials.
