Permanent basketball hoops require you to dig a pretty deep hole (usually 48 inches) for the goal post. Make sure there are no underground utility lines where you want to put the hoop. There is a free service that can tell you where you can dig safely.

Secured to the ground with cement, an in-ground basketball hoop system is more stable than a portable hoop, though it does require additional installation work. In-ground basketball hoops can also stand up to more aggressive gameplay compared to portable styles. Adjustability is a prime feature on in-ground basketball hoop systems.
The most common location to install an in-ground basketball hoop is next to a driveway. You can often dig the support hole for the pole right next to the concrete for the driveway, allowing you to use that surface as your basketball court. This is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to add a permanent basketball hoop to your property.
