Average experience. The net and ball are so lightweight that the ball can't fall through the mesh on the basket. You have to remove it by hand. Might as well be a sealed basket because it doesn't fall through .
I had one of these nerf basketball hoops when I was ten years old. I used to play nerf hoops in the kitchen with my older brother. I'm now in my mid-fifties and plan to play nerf hoops with my granddaughter. An awesome little game that's timeless, safe and still a lot of fun.
