I know my court is not 10 feet even. However, I just tell myself it's harder to bounce off of outdoor concrete than indoor hardwood so the inch or two evens itself out.
I don't play on outdoor courts because of my knees(they get sore on harder surfaces) but usually the surface makes up for the loss of height. I don't think I've played on an outdoor court where the hoop was purposedly set at below 10 feet, though.
