Abstract

A multi-task, exercising, sports use type backboard, “MTESB” which is comprised of a number of hinged connected panels with 2 sets of 2 rectangular, telescoping legs configured in the shape of an “A” hinged at the top and connected on each side of the panels. The device, MTESB, is foldable for compact storage and transportation and has a set of casters and handle attached to accommodate this. When unfolded and unlocked and supporting telescoping legs are extended, the device presents a self-supported moveable backboard for sports activities such as, but not limited to, tennis or basketball practice. The device is self-expandable by means of the spring hinges and unfolds automatically when the locking device is released. The unfolded target area for the activity is comprised of the hinged panels and the frontal telescoping legs, which become a total flat target surface to rebound the ball used for the activity. When the activity is completed the device is folded up and moved to storage by means of the casters and handle attached to one of the legs. This invention will provide a unit that has the uniqueness of being large enough to perform various sports activities and yet is able to be folded into a compact unit that is easily transportable and stored.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • FIG. 1 illustrates in a frontal view, the invention 10 in a use position with the unfolded backboard presenting a flat multi-paneled surface 20, consisting of flat rectangular panels 11, 12, 13, 14 which are composed of aluminum or composite material and are hinged together with hinges 21 and arranged between the rectangular telescoping legs 19 which are rectangular in shape and of aluminum, or composite material and shown in a fully extended position with leg sections 15 b, 15 c, 15 d and 16 a, 16 b, 16 c being locked by the detent buttons 22. This view does not show the rear set of legs 17,18 which are hinged via a lockable hinge 32 at the top of each pair of legs 19 to form an “A” when the hinge 32 is unlocked by depressing the button 33 and opened. The top leg section 15 a, 16 a is also hinged to panel sections 11, 14 thus providing additional backboard space. This presents an elevated flat backboard surface that permits a ball to bounce against it. The telescoping legs permit the flat panel section to be elevated to any desired position within the limits of the legs. The unit is not limited by the number of flat panels or the length or the width of these panels as custom sizes for alternate uses can be assembled for a variety of special use such as a partition or space divider or a display board.
  • FIG. 2 illustrates the “A” shape of the legs 15, 16, 17, 18 in an unfolded, fully extended and use position with the lower sections 15 d, 16 d, 17 d, 18 d having inserted by force fit in the cavity of the leg 25, the self gripping cushioned glides 23 comprised of a soft rubber like composition for use on a smooth surface as also seen in the detailed cross section in FIG. 1E. The glides can be reversed and re-inserted in the cavity 25 as seen in detailed cross section 1F so that the 2 gripping prongs 24 will present a gripping force for used on a soft permeable surface such as a lawn or gravel as shown in FIG. 1F.
  • FIG. 3 illustrates another use of the invention as a practice net for tennis. In this case the unit can be configured so by inserting into a circular recessed receptacle 44 on the outer side of the telescoping legs 15 and 16 an angle shaped wire 43 creating a vertically stable mast for insertion with a hollow tube 42 to which a net 41 is stretched and fastened. This configuration can be also repeated at the bottom section of the legs to present another stop net for balls that would go under the panels. Also, the legs 15, 16, 17, 18 are not extended fully as depicted in the length (x) so as to present the normal height of a regulation tennis net.
  • FIG. 4 illustrates another use of the invention configured as a backboard for practicing basketball 50. In this case the legs 15, 16, 17, 18 are fully extended as depicted in the length (y) to provide the normal height of a regulation basketball backboard. A net 51 and hoop 52 are then positioned over the top of the panels by means of a vertically “U” shaped bracket 54.
  • FIG. 5 illustrates the invention fully collapsed and locked together into a compact form and in a storage and moveable position 70 which is attained by collapsing the telescoping legs 15,16,17,18, into the top sections 15 a, 16 a, 17 a, 18 a, from the extended position, then folding flat from the opened position, the panels 11,12,13,14, in which the hinges 21 are closed and folded and the telescoping legs 15, 16, 17, 18 are folded flat against each other and locked each together at the top by locking the hinge 32. The tension of the hinges 21 is overcome by clasping together the two ends of the locking straps 31. The unit is now compacted and ready to transport on casters 68 and by holding onto handle 64 to a desired storage area or to a vehicle. This process is reversed when moved from storage area to a location where the invention will be set up for use.
  • FIG. 6 illustrates the invention configured to a hockey practice position 80 with the telescoping legs 15, 16, 17, 18, completely collapsed with the backboard 20 and the frontal legs 15 and 16 in a vertical position 90 degrees from the horizontal ground with the rear legs 17 and 18 canted at an angle rearward.
