Featuring the popular 54″ x 36″ backboard of the Goalsetter All-Star and a 4″ square off-set post design with slimmer lines, the Contender is just right for growing families who recognize features and quality in a basketball goal at a budget-friendly price. The Contender completely redefines the expectations of a mid-sized goal with a corrosion-resistant finish that is engineered to withstand the wear and tear of the outdoors, season after season.

The exclusive hinged ground-anchor system enables complete assembly of your basketball goal by 2-3 persons without ladders and a scaffold prior to raising it upright. A 42″ square steel anchor placed in the gound provides unmatched stability and durability.
When it’s time to move, your Goalsetter basketball hoop moves with you by simply purchasing a replacement ground anchor.
