It has taken 4 years of research and development despite his vast experience,which includes taking a start-uphe founded and growing it into a multi-million-dollarbusiness,listingon the NZX.Fast forward and the Telescopicgoal now comes in three interchangeable and upgradeable models; the T1, T2, and T3.While the cheaper entry level T1 utilises aluminium posts and ground spikes, the crossbar is fabric.

Adding a telescopic aluminium crossbar takes your product to a T2 although these models are both designed solely for soft ground surfaces. The T3 replaces ground spikes with stanchions resulting in a full aluminium frame appropriate for any surface.

All models can be folded down for easy storage and portability and arrive in a Telescopicgoal wheelie bag.All Telescopicgoal nets are colour coded with labelled sizes in order to make set up, pack away, and size change as easy and quick as possible.

Parents can purchase without fear that their children will outgrow the goal, ensuring long term value, while the adaptability and versatility of the T-models allows players to get the most out of their backyard space. Easy foldaway and portability makes wheeling goals to your local park possible, encouraging your children to use local spaces for outdoor play.
