Schelde Sports

Ready. set. play.


3X3 Street Slammer,
the ideal street basketball backstop
for all 3x3 events.
The global market leader in basketball systems, Schelde Sports, once again asked us to join their team. Their mission? To turn the worlds shopping mall parking lots into urban 3 on 3 basketball arenas. A noble cause if you ask us.

Specifications



The challenge with this project was the long wish-list. Flat pack, stack-able, transportable, safe, advertising space, fast and easy setup by one person, and all that at a competitive price.

Prototyping



To begin with this demanding task we started off with a thorough competitor analysis and field research. Seeing where the opportunities were we then dove into the system design. A series of scaled down 3D printed prototypes helped us to quickly lock into a functional and ergonomic concept.

Technical concept



After detailing this concept out we handed it back to Schelde Sports. They threw their vast knowledge at it, refined it, and built a full size prototype. From there, it was off to conquer the world's parking lots. Good teamwork, technical know how, and a passion for what you do is always a slam dunk combo.
