Types of 7-a-side goal posts
7v7 goals are available in a wide variety of constructions. These include Aluminium, Steel and PVC posts, permanent fittings for parks or schools and freestanding posts to allow greater flexibility of use. By identifying the needs of different groups, Harrod Sport is able to supply posts in a wide range of designs and sizes for all levels and age groups.
From refining designs and materials to improving safety, portability and easy storage, Harrod Sport has prided itself on innovation for over 60 years:
● Portable goals allow for easy transport by utilising Hi-Raise wheels.
● Fence folding goals use hinged supports to easily fold flush against a fence, creating space for other sports when not in use.
● Integrated weight goals provide strength and safety in addition to manoeuvrability on synthetic surfaces.
● Folding goals have folding side frames for ease of transportation and storage, making them ideal for warm-ups and use on temporary pitches.

If properly maintained, 7-a-side goal posts can last for many years, but general wear and tear or rust could reduce the life of your posts.
To protect against this, regular maintenance is essential. These checks should include inspecting fixtures and fittings to help prevent rust spots on steel posts, and using maintenance paint or spray when required.
We would strongly advise that where recommended nets are listed they are purchased with the goal to ensure best fit. The recommended net for this model has been specifically tailored to fit this goal.
