Basketball Hoop Regulation Height?

Answer

As in most sports there are plenty of regulations about height and placement of equipment in basketball. The basket must be a steel rim measuring 18 inches, have an attached net and be affixed to a backboard that measures 6 feet by 3.5 feet. The backboard is 18 inches high and 2 feet wide. At almost all levels of competition, the top of the rim is exactly 10 feet above the court and 4 feet inside the baseline. It is important for the basket to be at the correct height since a rim that is off by only a few inches can adversely affect the shot.
