Goal Post Size Guide

July 2, 2018 0 Comment

The following Goal Post size guide is to help you decide the best goal post for your age range and pitch surface.

Goal post size guide determines goal sizes in line with the FA’s recommendations. Goals sizes are approximately proportional to the height of age of the players. Goalposts can be used on different surfaces, grass, artificial surfaces and even hard surfaces. They will need to be safely fixed to prevent toppling so consider the anchors supplied with goals. Folding goals are designed to be quickly brought out for training or match days so the design is for speed of assembly and ease of storage.  Roller goalposts are designed to be left in situ and easily rolled around a pitch for training.

This is why you will see so many goalpost designs; folding goals, roller goalposts, portable goals in bags, socketed goals with box nets for stadiums and smaller plastic garden goals.

Garden goalposts are available in uPVC and also aluminum.  Both types of goalpost are made in safe lightweight material for children. Many plastic goals are made with small joining sections so the goals can pack in bags. We would advise that plastic goals with crossbars with a 12′ wide crossbar and above may have a slight dip in the crossbar and so we  recommend one section uPVC crossbar goals and at this size.
