Top 5 best basketball hoops for pool

Anyone who has a swimming pool knows that once the novelty wears off, the family uses it less and less. Basketball hoop is a perfect way to create loads of new excitement.

Kids and adults alike love having fun in the water. Especially, kids are absolutely enthusiastic about the addition of a basketball goal to your pool. There’s no limit to their creativity and they can keep themselves entertained for hours!

Today, there is a wide range of pool basketball hoops on the market. For your convenience, we’ve rounded-up top 5 basketball hoops for your pool:


1. GoSports Splash Hoop PRO Swimming Pool Basketball Game

Take the exciting action of basketball from the court to the pool and beat the heat! GoSports has reinvented this classic pool game with a fresh new look that instantly upgrades any pool for summer pool days, pool parties and more!


- GoSports Splash Hoop PRO - Includes 1 Splash Hoop Pro, 2 inflatable water basketballs, and ball pump for the ultimate swimming pool party game

2. GoSports Splash Hoop 360 Floating Pool Basketball Game

The design of this hoop is simple but awesome: it takes less than a minute to assemble, it’s sturdy, doesn’t topple, and I like that it comes with 2 balls of different sizes and even a ball pump!

Compared to other pool hoops, this one is not meant to be installed poolside. Instead, it floats on the water thanks to the thick foam padding on the bottom. You’ll love the fact that it doesn’t come with any blow-up air sections. This thing won’t lose buoyancy any time soon!

The size of the hoop and balls are maybe half the size of a regular basketball hoop. So don’t expect to work on your free throw accuracy with this hoop, but it’s great fun to shoot hoops or do spectacular dunks. Kids will spend hours with this hoop without getting bored!

3. Swimming Pool Basketball Hoop Set by Hoop Shark

Of all the hoops presented in this guide, this one looks least like a traditional basketball hoop. It’s made from thick rubber with durable seams and floats on the water thanks to large inflatable sections on the bottom.

This hoop comes with a size 5 (kids) basketball that is surprisingly heavy and high-quality. For younger kids, or crazy trick shots jumping from the side of the pool, you might want to get some additional smaller balls that are a little softer and easier to grab.

The thing we especially like about it is that a stainless steel rim actually feels good and offer quite a good bounce, similar to regular basketball hoops.
