Huck Nets Supply Inflatable IGOAL
17th August 2007
Huck Nets (UK) is adding the revolutionary IGOAL inflatable football goalposts to their football net & equipment range. Combining portability with safety, IGOAL is designed for any surface, inflates in minutes and is suitable for football training or recreation for all ages.
IGOAL is provided with 12 months guarantee, a two-way pump, a pre-attached net and a carry bag which fits into an average sized car.
IGOAL is made of industrial PVC 2 layer hose with terelyne for strength. Connectors are ABS-plastic steel. There is no risk of collision injuries and the two larger size goals conform to BS8462:2005. Goal equipment safety is important to the UKï¿½s largest sports charity, the Football Foundation. Concerned about the frequency and seriousness of injuries to young footballers, the Foundation has earmarked some ï¿½4m to replace unsafe goal equipment in the UK. Chief Executive Peter Lee summarises: "The Foundation is working with clubs, local authorities and schools, encouraging them to check their goals to ensure kids are as safe as possible when playing our national game."
Huck Nets will supply a choice of five sizes of IGOAL, Youth (21ft. x 7ft.), Intermediate (16 × 7), Junior (12 × 6), Home (8 × 5) and Mini (6 × 4). Selection will depend on target age and specific requirements.
IGOAL has recently been tested by a local football team near Huck's Dorset HQ. Team member Rob Walter said: "The IGOAL was quickly inflated and stood up well to one of our typical robust practice sessions. We had the added bonus of no fear of collision injury!"
The IGOAL is available to buy from Huck Nets Football catalogue and from their e-shop at www.hucknet.net.
