If you're just playing around for fun, set the hoop at whatever height you want. When played as a sport though, the hoop is virtually always set at 10 feet. Though some youth leagues for kids under 10 years put the hoop at 8.5 feet, I'd recommend playing or practicing with it at 10 feet, so that you'll learn skills applicable to school Basketball, and you won't have to readjust your technique later on.
