Industry News: New Varsity II Basketball for Swimming Pools Features Durable, All-Plastic Design

BLOOMSBURY, New Jersey, August 29 BACKYARD Pool has introduced the Pool Shot Varsity II basketball game for in-ground and above-ground swimming pools with decks. The Varsity II features an all-plastic design that boosts strength and adds longevity by eliminating the metal screws, nuts, washers and aluminum supports used in the original unit in favor of only a plastic base and plastic backboard, plus a regulation sized metal rim. The new Varsity II assembles easily in a few minutes by two people.

Featuring the key elements that established the original Pool Shot Varsity as a fixture in resorts, hotels, water parks, health clubs, YMCA’s and other aquatic facilities, the commercial quality Varsity II is highlighted by the patented Pool Shot triple-winged backboard, which returns scoring shots and corrals errant shots to prevent the ball from leaving the pool. The new Varsity II also includes an innovative base that fills with pool water or sand for safe, secure, anti-tip stability and also provides a novel ball storage area that secures two basketballs inside the unit. Both the backboard and base are rotationally molded of polyethylene to withstand extreme, non-stop gameplay and provide near immunity to chlorinated water, sunlight and inclement weather. The Varsity II may be left poolside year round or stored seasonally.

The Varsity II comes complete with backboard, base, rim, net, two basketballs, decals and stainless steel hardware rim kit. It is priced at $799.00 plus freight at
