FREQUENTLY ASKED Questions

 

 

SET-UP

What’s included with a halo ball set?

Everything you need to play. It comes with a ball, ratchet, line, rim, tree protectors, bungee, net and a bag to hold everything. Extra balls can be purchased

How do I attach the net to the rim?

Take the top loop and fold it over the top of the rim. Then, take a zip tie and connect it around the top of the loop and the knot that starts the next diamond of the net. Repeat this step for 5 more times on one side of the rim and then 6 times on the other side of the rim. Lastly, cut the zip ties loose ends.  

 

Can you set it up on poles?

Yes! Poles are perfect anchor points to use to set up your Halo Hoop. Make sure the poles are firmly set in the ground though. 

 

What if you don’t have trees or poles to put it on?

We encourage our customers to be creative with their setups! For example, chain link fences, gates, playgrounds, etc. If you aren’t the creative type, go to your local park, there will be spots to set up. 

 

How far apart can it be set up?

The Halo Hoop can be set up to 34 feet apart. Remember that the further the distance, the less stable the line will become. 

 

Are the tree protectors necessary?

Yes!!! The tree protectors are extremely important to protecting YOU. The slackline is vulnerable to ripping apart if it catches a sharp edge on a tree or sharp pole. A rip will send the ratchet flying which can be dangerous. Tree protectors keep the tree, the line, and you safe.

 

What is the ideal height and length for the setup?

Regulation height is 8’6”. For recreational play, we recommend that you play 1.5 feet above the average height of all athletes playing. The ideal length between trees is 25 feet.

 

How long does it take to set up?

It takes around 5-10 minutes. After a few tries, the process becomes much easier and quicker. 


 

RULES

What are the rules?

Visit the learn page on our website to find the rules. The basics: you can always pivot, pass, or shoot. No dribbling. Take up 2 steps if you want but lose the option to shoot. Layups and Dunks worth 1 point, alley oops worth 2. 

How many players is the game meant for?

3v3 is what the sport was created for. You can play 1’s, 2’s, 4’s or as many  as you feel.

How do you play 1v1?

You get 2 steps and there are 4 ways to reload those 2 steps. You can pass the ball off the tree, pass off the line, the ball hits the rim, or you throw the ball over the line to yourself. 

 

Can you hang on the rim?

We recommend that you do not hang on the hoop at any time. Feel free to dunk as hard as you can, just let go afterwards.  

 

GENERAL

Is this a kids or adults game?

Both. Halo Ball is great for kids because the height is adjustable, but the gameplay becomes advanced with adults.

 

Is the Halo Set waterproof? 

It can get wet, but it is not ideal. Make sure to dry the ratchet off thoroughly if it gets wet to prevent rusting from occurring. A rusted ratchet can ruin the whole set.

Everything you need to play. It comes with a ball, ratchet, line, rim, tree protectors, bungee, net and a bag to hold everything.
