  • The present invention is generally to portable basketball goal assemblies and more specifically to foldable, portable basketball goal assemblies.

    Portable basketball goal assemblies have many structures and methods of operation. The most simple is a weighted base with one or more wheels wherein the erect support for the backboard is tilted back over the wheel to be transported as illustrated in U.S. Pat. No. 3,025,058 to Brumfield. Other structures have been disassembled into a planar configuration as illustrated by U.S. Pat. Nos. 3,716,234 to Lancellotti and 4,869,501 to Anastasakis. Others include a vertical support structure which collapses vertically as illustrated in U.S. Pat. Nos. 4,526,367 to Haston, et al. and 5,102,128 to Geise. Further examples of wheeled bases which are portable without adjustment are shown by U.S. Pat. No. 3,722,886 to Sinner, U.S. Pat. No. 5,207,407 to Fitzsimmons, et al. and U.S. Pat. No. 5,248,140 to Matherne et al. In the addition to the above, an example of a wheeled support having an enclosure for receiving ballast is exemplified by U.S. Pat. No. 3,841,631 to Dolan.

  • A more recent design of foldable, portable basketball goal assemblies have a vertical support pivotally connected adjacent a front end of a hollow base filled with ballast and a brace structure connected at opposite ends to the support and the base adjacent the other end of the base. Such structures are illustrated in my copending application Ser. No. 08/267,933 shown in FIGS. 1 and 2 and Ser. No. 08/190,457 as well as U.S. Pat. No. 5,259,612 to Matherne et al. The brace locks the support in an erect playing position or in a lowered transport position greater than horizontal.

    Another object of the present invention is to provide a portable basketball goal assembly which has a playing and a transport position which are positively and fixedly defined.

  • A further object of the present invention is to provide a portable goal basketball assembly which is easy and safely converted from an erect play position to a lowered transport position.

The present invention is directed to a novel adjustable basketball goal assembly having a constant force adjustment assembly that facilitates adjusting the height of a basketball goal above a playing surface. The basketball goal assembly of the present invention includes a support pole that extends in a substantially upward direction. The support pole has a goal side and a back side formed opposite the goal side. A deformable goal support structure may be pivotally attached to the goal side of the support pole such that the goal support structure is suspended above the playing surface. The goal support structure includes an upper support arm and a lower support arm. In one presently preferred embodiment of the present invention, one of the support arms has a tail section that extends substantially outward from the back side of the support pole.
