Splashing and swimming in the pool is one of summertime’s simple joys. Why not make it even more fun with the addition of a poolside basketball hoop? There are a ton of options available ranging from floating hoops to hoops that you can install permanently to the edge of the pool, and they all have their pros and cons.
With basketball hoops for the pool, what you choose will largely be dependent on the type of pool you have, the amount of space you have for the hoop, who will be using it, and how much you want to spend. There are sturdy poly and steel models that are perfect for teens that might not work as well for little players, due to how high they sit above the pool. For them, a floating basket might work best.
This list features poolside basketball hoops in a variety of styles, price points, and materials, all with an eye toward quality. We chose the seven hoops we think will get the most basket for your buck.
