Today, Basketball is the second highest participation sport in the country. The national league is enjoying a healthy resurgence; largely thanks to the revival of our national competition (NBL) and our strong contingent of Aussies in the NBA.
At Nothing But Net, we believe the future of basketball in Australia rests in the ambitions of our youth. So our focus for the next three years is to make basketball more accessible and enjoyable for every Australian. We're doing this in two ways:
1: Improving the quality of outdoor courts across Australia
Stadiums are at capacity, so we’re working with councils across Australia to educate them on improving the facilities of outdoor courts. Why? From our work we can see that better courts motivate kids to play.
Every month we reach out to new councils and ask them to improve the quality of their courts. By the end of 2020, we hope all states across Australia commit to installing Ring Leader hoops in our parks. If you can help us in this mission - email us here.
2. Mapping every public outdoor court in Australia.
We’ve mapped more than 200 courts across Australia, but we have many more to go and we need your help. We want to fill the Nothing But Net app with pins so every kid in Australia, no matter where they are, can find a great local court to play at with friends in an instant.
By 2020, we hope to have 1000+ courts on the Nothing But Net app. If you find a court, use the app to let us know and if you're keen to dedicated some time to mapping courts in states across Australia for us - hit us up here.
As always, thank you to everyone who has been a part of the journey so far.
