Looking for some advice on how to make Volley Ball Poles semi-permanent.

I am looking to install a volleyball net. Ideally, I would like to have it where the I can install the net as needed, so I would like to something where I can install the poles into a permanent hole in the ground. Just not sure how to attack this, any advice? Thanks.

Install concrete in ground with short (~6") high post that's a little smaller OD than the ID of the real post. Drill hole through ground post. Take real post, drill matching hole and put over ground post. Bolt in place. Take bolt out and remove real post when not needed.

Make sure you make a cover or something for the ground post so people don't trip over it and sh1t.

Flush hidden solution is to do the opposite of what Sam suggests. Put the larger ID pipe in the ground a couple feet deep, maybe into a concrete footing. Then your volleyball poles simply slide in and out. You can cover the pipe in the ground with a grommet of some kind.

That's what I'd do. I'd use PVC, and also level the volley ball posts with concrete INSIDE the pipe. PVC is incase somehow you manage to knick it with a lawn mower or something it wont get destroyed, and it'll never rot out, and it's cheap as ****.
