So easy to put up (and to take down!)
4 May 2017
I got this set for my nearly 6 year old son. These pop up goals by PodiuMax were an upgrade to the inexpensive plastic goals that he had now outgrown. The goals come in their own zip carry case which simultaneously serves as storage bag when the goals are not in use. I like that the carry strap can be adjusted making it easy for children to carry. The two goals don't weigh too much and stored together in their carry case they are very manageable! Easily portable so perfect for taking on holiday or over to a friend's house.
The goal rods are made from fibreglass making them so much more robust than their plastic predecessors. The net is made from tetoron, a polyester fibre. The yellow netting looks very attractive against the black of the frame. Although these might have been designed for young players in mind, I feel these would be suitable for all ages. They are a decent size and the design and colours are "mature" enough to be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Assembling the goals is so easy as they simply pop into position once removed from their case. I was also pleasantly surprised how easy it was to get them back into their case. I've had a traumatic experience with a pop up tent in the past so was a little wary. Luckily these goals didn't cause any problems as they are single twist and fold and I'm happy to report they were back in their bag in no time! There are also some Velcro straps to help keep them together. The case is nice and roomy too so it didn't require any scrunching up or squeezing into place.
The goals are approximately 115cm x 100cm in size and they come with 8 pegs (4 for each goal) to help to further secure them to the lawn. Although these goals are nice and light weight they are still substantial and robust enough to stay in place. I love the fact that they are so easy to set up (and take down!) - just perfect for kids! I'm my children will have lots of fun with these and I'm hoping to update as to how they are holding up. Really impressed so far and would recommend them to anyone who is on the hunt for good quality football goals that also look the part!
