Telescopicgoal: The Adjustable Football Goal for All Ages and Skill Levels

Revolutionizing Football with Versatility and Quality

While living in the UK, Tom Mackenzie struggled to find long-lasting, easy-to-assemble football goals that catered to different age groups. After years of research and development, Telescopicgoal was born. This innovative design offers a high-quality, adjustable goal capable of 35 different sizes, ensuring accessibility and adaptability for players of all ages and skill levels.

Telescopicgoal is a football goal like no other. Its key strength lies in its meticulous engineering design, which allows for versatility and convenience. The goal can be adjusted to widths ranging from 2m to 5m and heights from 1m to 2m, making it suitable for players of all ages. Whether you're a young beginner or an experienced player, Telescopicgoal has you covered.

One of the standout features of Telescopicgoal is its portability. The goal can be folded down into just four pieces, which can then be stored in an easily transported wheelie bag. This makes it ideal for coaches, parents, and players who are constantly on the move. The goal is made from weather-resistant aluminum, striking a balance between strength and portability, ensuring a long-lasting life.

Telescopicgoal comes in three models: the T1 and T2 for soft grounds, and the T3 suitable for any surface. The posts and crossbar are made from aluminum tubing, replicating the match day feel of the ball hitting and bouncing off the frame. The smaller aluminum tubing reduces weight and cost, while plastic sleeves prevent the smaller tube from extending too far.

Setting up Telescopicgoal is a breeze. The height can be adjusted using a spring clip, while friction locking clamps ensure stability. The net is divided into two parts, with the right side net separate from the main net. The width of the goal is set by loops with printed dimensions on the top of the net, which are connected using carabiners. The rest of the net is attached to the frame with colored carabiners that match colored loops, ensuring easy connection.

Telescopicgoal was developed through extensive research, adhering to international standards for football goals. The design incorporates the required net support height and base depth, ensuring safety and functionality. The diameter of the crossbar surpasses the required load test, guaranteeing durability and performance.

The Telescopicgoal project started in October 2018 in the UK and was launched in New Zealand in November 2022. Throughout the design process, challenges were overcome, resulting in a modular offering with upgradeable parts. The consumer can choose from three models, each capable of adjusting to 35 different sizes. The T1 and T2 models are designed for soft grounds, with the T1 featuring a fabric crossbar and the T2 an aluminum crossbar. The T3 model, with its full frame, can be used on all surfaces.

Telescopicgoal has received recognition for its outstanding design. It was awarded the Bronze A' Design Award in the Sporting Goods, Fitness, and Recreation Equipment Design category in 2023. This prestigious award acknowledges designs that exhibit technical and creative excellence, contributing to quality of life improvements.

Telescopicgoal is more than just a football goal; it is a game-changer in the world of football. With its adjustable size, portability, and high-quality construction, Telescopicgoal ensures that football is accessible to everyone, regardless of age or skill level. Say goodbye to inconsistent goal sizes and hello to a goal that grows with you.

Telescopicgoal is protected by an international PCT patent application, solidifying its intellectual property rights. With its unique design and exceptional functionality, Telescopicgoal is set to revolutionize the world of football.
