I helped a buddy make this in preparation for the nice summer weather. He wanted something that was going to stay put. That’s why the bases are so huge. Materials only cost ~$30 at Home Depot. The bases are 2×12, the uprights are tubafores and the crossbars are 1/2” PVC. I attached the uprights by countersinking some lag screws in the bases. The crossbars are held in place using some PVC couplings Gorilla glued into the tubafores. It is very easy to break down but stays put when together. Only took about 2 hours so all in all, not a bad project. He plans to paint it in the colors of his alma mater.

It’s a “yard game.” You throw strings with balls on the ends and try to “ring” the crossbars. I’ve never played but it seems like a good tailgating game. Here’s a link.

Good work!
I have that game and it’s a blast! I used PVC to build my set so I can’t post it here. I used rebar as stakes and just slide the ladder on to the rebar when I set it up. Anyway you make it you will have fun playing the game!
