A basketball goal can provide a great source of physical activity not only for children but adults too. Basketball goals can be set up in a freestanding manner, either weighted down by a substance such as sand or water or planted into the ground. Or, basketball goals can be mounted to an already existing surface such as an outside wall. Mounting a basketball goal to a brick house requires a few necessary steps.

Tips and warnings

  • Measure several times before you mount your basketball goal to make sure you have the exact height you want.
  • Mounting a basketball goal to a brick house will not allow you to adjust the height as easily as a freestanding goal would.
