Purchased for my nine year old daughter’s birthday present; easy to set up (don’t have to use all post sections if you want reduced height) and well made. Excellent service from Newitts.

My daughter is really pleased with the netball post. Good communication and quick delivery. Thank you very much.
5 out of 5 LOVE THIS ITEM
The netball post is perfect for my daughter. Very sturdy and is the correct height although you can reduce the height if required. It was extremely easy to put together. My mother also purchased one for her house as she decided it would give her a little exercise. She has it slightly lower as she hasn't the strength to throw it to the higher level. I would highly recommend the item. The contact from Newitts about the delivery was excellent. We even had an email keeping us updated on the time it would be delivered

The product it’s self is very good. However when it arrived I discovered that the hoop had been damaged and the paint had flaked off allowing the metal to rust. The base leaks water when filled more than half way.
5 out of 5 Great!

Newitts Verified Purchase (12 Mar 2016)
We bought this post for my daughter for her 8th birthday in February and she loves it. It was very easy to put together. We currently have it on the junior height but I will raise it when she gets older. Her shooting has come leaps and bounds as she is able to practice all the time on the sturdy post. Would highly recommend this post. ????

Set it up in 15 minutes on Christmas Eve very good quality for the money. The only thing that hasn't blown around the garden in the strong winds
3 out of 5 Inadequate instructions
Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Dec 2015)
The netball post is very good . But please , after reading previous reviews why have you not done something about the inadequate instructions , the print on the diagram and the components are so small , they can hardly be of any help in the construction . An excellent product , but as a company you are failing to address a problem that appears regularly in your reviews .

Easy to put together and good choice of heights loved by my 13 yr old granddaughter would highly recommend it to all ages as it can grow with them.

5 out of 5 Gilbert Netball Post 3.05m
Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Aug 2015)
The netball post was bought for my grand-daughter. It is extremely well made and she thoroughly enjoys using it. The fact that it is easy to move around the garden is an important feature. All in all, I would definitely recommend it. But one further comment is definitely necessary. Before purchase, I had read reviews which said how poor the assembly instructions are. I can confirm this. Although we worked out how to assemble it, the instruction sheet was of no use whatsoever. The manufacturers should be ashamed of it, and of the fact that they have ignored previous reviews saying how poor it is. How long would it take to improve it?

We purchased this on Wednesday lunchtime and the service from Newits was amazing. Lots on info about the delivery with DPD down to the hour of delivery for the following day. We could then track the driver and know exactly when our delivery would be made. The build instructions were not as clear as they could be. However, the most frustrating thing is that when my daughter shoots the ball keeps rebounding of the wheels in the base and shooting off in different directions. We have had a Reebok Basketball net for 10 years which does not have this problem due to a different design of where the post sits. Very disappointed in the design and would not recommend it to anyone.

We purchased this for our daughters 9th Birthday & left 1 pole out when putting it together. Both the 9yr old and 6 yr old absolutely love it & manoeuvre it around themselves. Would definitely recommend.

Grand Daughter thinks it's wonderful and thank you for combining this purchase with a 'pink' netball that completed the effect.

My daughter was absolutely delighted with her netball post and it has been used endlessly since its erection on Christmas Day! Very swift delivery and sensibly priced.
4 out of 5 A good buy.

Generally very pleased with this ... I bought it for my 12 yr old daughter and managed to build it without help despite completely useless instructions. End result very good. A middle-aged single Mum!

With patience and concentration the post was simple to put together. So far it has been excellent to use. I bought it for my granddaughter to practice shooting and as I too an a goal shooter the easily adjustable height means I can also use it when she is not around. The delivery from Newitts was very efficient.

Newitts Verified Purchase (19 Jan 2014)
The post is sturdy and pretty simple to assemble, took hubby about 15 mins from picking up first bolt to my girls shooting their first goal! Easy to increase and decrease size according to age of child, far superior to the post we had before. But....I have to say the most impressive comment is to newitts themselves who totally saved my bacon 2 working days before Xmas...what stars!! Being the totally disorganised mother that I am I left it until Friday 20th December 4.50pm to order the post and several other stocking fillers, skorts, netballs etc..Amazon couldn't deliver until 3rd Jan, but you delivered Xmas Eve....sincere thanks! You've earned my eternal loyalty.
4 out of 5 Bit of a fiddle to put up but a good net nevertheless
Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Aug 2013)
We bought one of these for our 10 year old daughter and are very happy with it. The build quality seems good and with care it should last many years. It's a bit of a fiddle to put together however and the supplied instructions are rather enigmatic..
5 out of 5 post fit for an eight year old
Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Jul 2013)
Bought the Gilbert Netball post for my daughters 8th Birthday. She has just started playing matches and needs to shoot at full height (10ft plus). Was the most reasonable priced good make of post I could find and as we have a slightly sloping garden thought the base that you fill with water or sand the best bet. She loves it and the whole family plays!!
