Most basket bases can be weighted with water or sand (see product instructions). Sand is denser than water and so the same volume will be heavier: your basket will therefore be more stable (but harder to move). Water can also freeze in winter and break the plastic base if the temperature drops too low, or leak out through hidden cracks. We recommend weighing down your base with sand to be safer.How should you care for your basketball basket?
We recommend cleaning your basketball basket with a damp sponge and some soap. Rinse in fresh water. If your product has protective foam on the post, remember to store it inside in winter. We recommend using a cover to protect the backboard from rain and frost.What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 10 ft. (rim height). Kids need a basketball basket that will grow with them. For younger kids, there isn't an official height, so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 8'6". After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets.What precautions should you take in strong winds or storms?
Our baskets comply with the European standards for stability. Nevertheless, to avoid any accidents and to stop it from blowing over in high winds, we strongly recommend lying your product down when not in use. The bigger the board, the more it will catch the wind, particularly when it is in its higher positions. Don't take any risks. If you live in a very windy area, you can also add additional weight to your basket's base.What ball should you use?
The ball size depends on the player's age and gender. Toddlers: 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.Can the Tarmak basketball hoops and boards be used on public courts?
Our baskets are designed for private use (family, friends). They comply with French regulations (n°96-495 of 4 June 1996) and Portuguese regulations (decree 100-2003, amended by 82-2004). They are not designed for the heavy use associated with public and club courts. Club equipment must be regularly tested on site and requires safety authorizations.Did you know that all TARMAK products are tested in the lab and in match conditions?
