This set of portable volleyball bases were purchased in 2011. They have been used 5-6 times a year since then. These are in good condition. These still work the way they are supposed to work, but there are some wear and tear scratch marks on the bases. The reason we are selling these is because we do not have a use for them anymore. These bases give you the flexibility to set up a full size volleyball net anywhere in your gym or at your facility.
