Good, sturdy powder coated metal frame which easily folds flat for storage when not in use. Easy to assemble, in fact the only difficult part was unravelling the net when taking it out of the package!
The net is fixed to the frame by attached velcro tabs. Don't know if this is enough so i added a few plastic cable ties and it is now much more secure.
The size is perfect for my 6 yr old in a 30' garden and at £20 (which is what I paid) is unbeatable value for this kind of quality. I have seen similar size goals (that don't even fold) for double and even treble this price! Really can't praise it highly enough!
Size is fine for 6 - 11 year olds in a small-medium garden.
However the framework is weaker than other makes we've used, and one of the posts started to shear within a week, and got worse, so it is being replaced.
Disappointing for the price.
It arrives well packaged, in a good box with each piece individually wrapped, with each piece clearly numbered and with easy-to-follow instructions. It can be assembled by one adult, even when being hassled by kids impatient to play with the goal.
However it's as you assemble it that you realise it's not really a premium bit of kit. The pins don't perfectly fit the holes, meaning it's quite a rattley, wobbly structure even when built properly. The fact you have to use velcro straps to keep the net on, rather than it having any kind of proper system of hooks, feels exceptionally cheap and will break far too easily.
You fix the net into the ground using four very ordinary tent pegs, which loop round the poles rather than hooking onto them in any way, which again feels like a bit of lazy design. It's important to note that there is a BIG safety warning on the instructions saying that the bottom of the goal has to be pegged firmly into the ground, otherwise "Unsecured Goal Can Fall Over Causing Serious Injury Or Death". So if you were thinking of using this goal on a patio, or on tarmac, then be VERY warned that that's in breach of the safety instructions and you will have to think about some other secure way of making sure it isn't going to fall over. While it's not exceptionally heavy, it's heavy enough that if it fell on somebody's head, serious injury could happen. It's also not particularly weighted onto the base, which seems like a mistake too.
With the 6x8 size one, the base is actually smaller than the goal itself.Read more ›
The frame is made of sturdy steel covered in a protective white paint and is easily assembled by locking each section into place with the use of easy to press button pins. The netting is made from a fairly strong fibre and easily secured to the frame. Lockable hinges at the base of the frame in the corners allow the upright section to sit safely on the base section through the use of a locking pin and, in turn, as these lockable hinges have a folding mechanism built into them, the upright frame and attached net can be folded back onto the base frame and locked into place with the locking pin allowing the folded frame to be stored against a wall or in the garage. It should be noted that when the goal frame is folded and locked into a storage position, the frame will still measure 8ft x 6ft and so suitable storage space is required. Otherwise, the net can be easily removed from the frame and the frame dismantled and put safely back into the carrier box for transportation.
The goal frame offers hours of fun for the children and, if treated with respect and not hammered by the football by over eager kids, serves as an excellent tool for eye and feet coordination as well as superb training for those wannabe Beckham youngsters who could go on to become great sportsmen and women of the future.Read more ›

First things first, putting this goal together was pretty simple. It comes in about 9 pieces that slot together and takes about 5-10 minutes to set-up from the box. Read morePublished 3 days ago by T.K.
