You are requesting the tariff classification on two separate sets used for pool play. The first set is described as a pool-volleyball set, item number 16304. This set is comprised of a net, a ball and poles designed for use at a pool. The second set is identified as a pool basketball/volleyball set, item number 16502: 2-N-1. This set consists of two balls, two nets, base/goal units, hoops and decals for use in water sports. The two sets will be classifiable in Chapter 95 of the HTSUSA as other outdoor games.

The applicable subheading for the pool-volleyball set, item 16304 and the pool basketball/volleyball set, item 16502: 2-N-1 will be 9506.99.6080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Articles and equipment for general physical exercise, gymnastics, athletics.
