Uball: A new hoop set that brings basketball to the beach
Uball is a basketball hoop set that you can carry around like a backpack and set up like a beach umbrella. It also comes with a new set of rules that combines ultimate frisbee and basketball.
Uball is played with a size four basketball. The game follows the rules that loosely resemble that of a regular basketball pickup game.
First of all, there are no out-of-bounds. Each team has three players, and players could only take two steps before taking a shot or making a pass. Drilling does not permit players to take more steps. Each basket counts as one point, and the first team to score 11 wins the game.
Here are the full basic rules.
The hoop set weighs around 30 pounds and could be set up in minutes. You can set the hoop between 5.5 and 8.5 feet. The rim and backboard are both reinforced with steel for long-lasting durability. So please bring your dunking game.
Assembling Uball is a five-step process:
Step 1: Screw the base into the ground
Step 2: Attach the rim to the pole and the backboard
Step 3: Adjust the height of the hoop
Step 4: Lift the hoop set and place it on the ground screw
Step 5: Tighten three knobs on the ground screw to the pole
The portable basketball set creates a new version of basketball that has more dunking and less dribbling.
