Basketball Pole Pads Often Overlooked As Safety Features On Basketball Goal Systems

With home-based basketball goal systems more popular than ever before, it might be easy for a consumer to overlook a safety feature that often doesn’t come standard with a goal purchase. One Indianapolis based company is looking to change that standard by including a high-quality pole pad with purchases of select Goalrilla Goals basketball systems through

“A pole pad might seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised just how many home-based goals don’t use them,” said Brad Riley, owner of “We include the basketball pole pad free with every purchase of a Goalrilla Goals ProGlass, GS I, II and III basketball goal.”

Statistically speaking, collisions with the basketball pole itself represent less than ten percent of all basketball injuries. Since many poles feature steel construction, accidental contact with a basketball pole can lead to head injuries. Adding a basketball pole pad to a purchase, says Riley, can possibly reduce the severity of a pole mishap.

"The basketball pole pads that come with the selected models are
authentic Goalrilla Pole Pads. These pole pads are over twice as thick
as typical pads found in sporting good stores," Riley claims. "When you
are on the receiving end of a hard foul when going in for a layup, the
extra padding could reduce the incidents of an injury", adds Riley.
"Don't know about you, but I'd feel a little safer knowing my basketball
pole is protected by a pole pad made to protect yourself better from
aggressive opponents."
