Dockside Basketball Hoop

A basketball hoop is the latest addition to the ShoreMaster and Pier & Waterfront Solutions line of accessories. Take the game off the hot court and put it in the water with a dockside Basketball Hoop. Imagine the summer fun (and exercise) your family will enjoy.  Just add the basketball and start the fun.

This summer has seen high humidity and temperatures. It isn’t easy to get the exercise the kids and adults, need. With many people isolating themselves during the pandemic, this is an excellent way to stay cool and get your workout at the same time.

The backboard measures 44″ x 30″ for easy bank shots. Like most ShoreMaster dock accessories, the dockside Basketball hoop utilizes the Infinity Track accessory system. You can easily attach and reattach it anywhere along the perimeter of the dock system. For more information on the Infinity track system, see this article.

The basketball hoop includes a 5′ post, which mounts easily to the side of the dock. (Non-ShoreMaster docks may need a simple adaptor plate.)    

The basketball hoop features an 18″ diameter rim. With a waterproof nylon net, the basketball hoop is sure to provide seasons of fun.

Your family will have one more attraction this summer to keep them occupied. There is no reason to get bored.

Dock Mounted Slide



There is more than one option available.  The slide can be mounted on a dock or raft for even more fun and excitement.  Talk to PWS about the slides and/or the dock or raft to mount it on.



NOTE –  PWS wants a safe environment for your family.  Make sure there is enough water depth to protect the family when exiting the slide.  Clear all boulders and hard surfaces from the area to prevent injury.  Make sure the unit is stable before anyone uses it.  This applies to dock mounted or Freestanding models.

Kids should be supervised at all times.
