When Schelde Sports, an ABEO group company, asked us to transform their SAM 225 Club basketball goal into something fit for the FIBA 3X3 World Tour, we jumped at the chance to show them our skills on the court. In just a few short weeks we weaved through mood-boards, made a fast break for a solid concept and with an assist from our technical detailing we slam dunked the final product!

Training the innocent looking SAM 225 Club into its new tougher looks

It had to have enough muscle to stand up against all weather conditions, be safe and secure, and still be able to deliver the messages of the sponsors.

Making it real thanks to a full-scale prototype

Together with padding specialists Coolen, from Eindhoven, and thanks to Schelde Sports’s expertise and know how our design was detailed to perfection and quickly realized.

An unbeatable team

As a result of that FIBA chose Schelde Sports as their official partner for the FIBA 3X3 World Tour and all FIBA 3X3 World championships.

“We are proud to team up with FIBA and become the official backstop unit supplier for the 3x3 World Tour and the 3x3 World Championships.”


“The true challenge was to translate the wishes of the customer into a feasible design in a real short period of time.”
