Best Answer

8 feet 6 3/8 inches

The top of the goal is 10 feet above and perpendicular to the floor below.

The goal ring is 5/8 inch in diameter (OD)

The net retention system may use up 1 inch of net.

For a 18 inch net the residual length will be: 18" - 1" = 17"

The nets height above the floor is: 10' - (5/8" + 17") = 8' 6 3/8"
