It has been demonstrated that in case of pandemics, it is important to expand home activities. When COVID lockdown took place, those with basketball hoops at home stayed fit and did not get frustrated staying inside the fence. It is therefore now a great time to invest in family fun. If anyone in your family needs more convincing, we are sharing the top reasons to buy a basketball hoop in 2021.
1. Socially Distanced Family Fun
In 2020, we all spent a lot more time at home than we had planned. Eventually the Netflix queue ran dry and learning to bake bread turned stale. Then we started looking to the outdoors – specifically our driveways. Goalrilla basketball hoops provide the opportunity for socially distanced fun the whole family can enjoy.
2. Physical Activity
We all have added a few extra pounds than we were anticipating in 2020. This year it is time to get off the couch and focus on our physical and mental health. Owning a basketball goal is a great way to get active and healthy. It not only cuts weight but also improves the cardiovascular system. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends all children and adolescents should engage in at least an hour of physical activity each day.

3. A Place for Your Children and Their Friends to Play Safely
Bring the fun home with a safe place for your children and their friends to play. Instead of traveling to an indoor gym or a crowded park, install a basketball goal you can play in your driveway any time.
4. Add Value to Your Home
In-ground basketball hoops are often seen as an asset during a home sale and add value to your home and act as an influencer to potential buyers if you’re looking to sell. If you are moving and wish to take your in-ground goal with you, you can simply unbolt the basketball goal from the current anchor kit and buy a new one here. Anchor kits are available for Silverback/Goaliath and for Goalrilla.
5. Late-Night Boredom Buster
Say no to boredom after the sun goes down. Adding a LED Hoop Light or Torch LED Floodlight to your driveway is the perfect way to keep playing outside after dark.
