This shatter proof basketball hoop, comes with 2 balls! I have 2 kids, so that was a huge selling point for me! Nip fighting bc they each have a ball! It comes basically assembled. All you have to do is put the over the door hooks on with 4 screws and 4 washers that come with it! My 3 &5 year olds love it! And so do I! I definitely recommend this basketball hoop! Young or old, you'll have fun with this!
