For about $30 in materials (and an hour or so of time), you can build this versatile sports goal, just right for games of backyard soccer or driveway street hockey.

What you'll need

  • 2 (10-foot) lengths of 1 1/2-inch PVC plastic pipe
  • 6 matching elbow connectors
  • A street-hockey size replacement net -- we used a Mylec brand net, with sleeves that slide over the posts
  • Hacksaw or other fine-tooth saw

How to make it

  1. Using a hacksaw or other fine-tooth saw, cut one pipe into two 51-inch lengths, leaving 18 inches of scrap.

  2. Step 2

    Cut the other pipe into two 40-inch lengths and two 20-inch lengths. Then simply assemble the net as shown, sliding on the sleeves of the netting as you go.
