Recommended placement of backboard

se caution when selecting preferred fence location. In the sun belt, the backboard should not face the West due to intense sun. This probably will accelerate aging of the panel surface and paint. Ideally the panels should be at right angles to the path of the sun so during practice a player never directly looks into the sun. If placed on a tennis court at an end, the white lines of the court may be used as practice reference points/lines.
