Outdoor Basketball Tower Load Testing Frequency

    ​Hi All,

    I am trying to determine what the most appropriate inspection regime for outdoor basketball hoop / towers would be.  In the absence of an AS/NZS standard I have used a structural engineer and BSEN 1270:2005 as a load testing methodology.  The basket ball hoops are visually inspected monthly, but I am interested to see the load testing frequency that other use.  There doesn't appear to be any standards or  code of practice guidelines for this.

    Thank you for your time,

    ​Hi Annette,
    Department of Education and training, Queensland has its own set of guidelines/ checklist for the basketball equipment.
    Hope this helps your need.
