Great piece of kit, very robust. Not as easy to move due to being very heavy and really needs 2 people to help lean over and move the wheels under then back again. Also the screw handle used to adjust the height has become loose making it quite tricky to adjust.
Been looking for a decent hoop for kids to throughout lockdown and been keeping an eye on this one as it seemed competitively priced. Didn't hesitate when I saw that stock was in! Delivery was earlier than expected which was great!
The build process was terrible, similar to other reviews this didn't put me off and I saw the YouTube video beforehand and it all seemed fairly straightforward. Just get ready on the pause button when watching the video! Needless to say I gave up on the instructions as they didn't even reference which bolts exactly go where, just listed the items you need for each build phase. The water base was the worst and needed some proper forcing of bolts with a hammer at this stage. Once made and stood up it was huge! And quite impressive....lowered it for the kids and happy days!
It been very good and value for money product. Cheers
Need to return the hoop to Decathlon for a new net clasp.

1st thing, out the box the set up looks excellent, great packaging, everything protected.
As I always do, I count ALL the parts against the Parts List to check if anything is missing, it was all there, the Bolt Measurement pictures do help to quickly identify you have them all however one of the Bolt Sets were longer than the corresponding picture but was ok.
I did watch the assembly Video on the Website prior to buying so did realise that you need at least 2 Spanners/Socket Set or Adjustable Wrenches however I understand that not everyone does watch the Video, I also knew from the Comments and replies that not having these Tools would lead to difficulties - a few of the replies from Decathlon do state what sizes are required.
Should this be made clearer? Yes, however personally when I buy something (especially when there is so much choice) I research to death, watch any Instruction Videos/Reviews I can find and ALWAYS look at the negative reviews - I was therefore aware that certain tools were needed.
I didn't have to buy any as I have plenty of tools already, (a Ratchet Socket Set is a must) but Yes, I would have been frustrated if I did not have them without knowing they were needed. The truth is the information is here if you look hard enough.
The instruction Booklet is clear, but I again can understand why many would find it a bit confusing at the start, there are no written instructions, just pictures and diagrams, good if you are an experienced DIY'er but not everyone is.
The Video however proved excellent and helped with the 1st and trickiest part of the set up, after that its pretty straightforward.
I did make one big error with 2 washers at the beginning and to rectify it (getting them out to use elsewhere) added 30mins to the build but I did the lot, on my own in just over 2hrs. Its the doubling of Spanners/Sockets that take time on those longer Screws.
I've read reviews of other Brands about mis-alighed holes, poor Welds, incorrect Bolts, but nothing here, its well engineered.
Once finished and upright you can see that is a quality bit of Kit, certainly worth the price, I have seen others for almost double in price and the fatal flaw is the Backboard that many don't seem to have decent support for and this fails over time as it will take a bashing.
The Dark Grey Powder Coat finish with the Red Hoop and Height Adjuster really give it a look of quality, 2yrs Warranty is also reassuring.
Its going to get some good use with my 2 Sons and I during this unfortunate Lockdown period but it looks like it will take it.
I'd recommend this product, just make sure you have the right tools before you start to set it up.
The hoop is good, but make sure you have a socket set to build it, without it you can not put it together. Before buy
Make sure to look at the video and see what tools you need.
The basketball stand itself is great, but the construction instructions are poor and it is not trivial to construct - took my husband at least 2-3 hours.
Thank you for taking the time to write us this review. Your valuable feedback goes a long way in the product development.
We are delighted that the basketball satisfy to your needs. In regards to the manual, we will feedback this to our product and design team.

It is good quality but cumbersome to assemble and needs atleast two people and about couple of hours for normal household folks who are not expert at handyman speed work. It doesn’t comes with tool so you have to buy your own and there are numerous small to parts and bolts to be joined and put together to get it up. Must have patience and bit of strength and figuring out needed the video online has atleast one wrong step and differ from rehe steps in the manual provided. All in all it can be improved and made more user friendly for avg user.
