Basketball Victoria (BV) are excited to announce a renewal of the long-running partnership with Spalding for another 6 years, through to 2029.
Basketball Victoria have been partners with Spalding since 2019, who have been providing high quality basketballs, backboard systems and accessories to the Victorian basketball community.
Spalding will remain the official basketball of all BV representative competitions including NBL1 South, VJBL, Big V and CBL, in addition to tournaments and events like the Junior Country Championships, National Junior Classic, Hoop Time and 3XCup.
With basketball being the fastest growing team sport and over 200,000 registered competition participants playing weekly in Victoria, it is more important than ever to ensure players of all ages have the right equipment and best basketballs available to learn and develop skills.
Chris Lambert, Spalding Australia Managing Director said, “as the game of basketball continues to grow in popularity and participation, we are thrilled to be extending our partnership with Basketball Victoria. Victoria holds the lion's share of basketball participation across Australia, so it was important that we remain a key partner to BV by supporting state level and grassroots basketball. Our commitment to providing the best possible basketballs, equipment and accessories has not wavered and we hope to bring some exciting products to the Victorian basketball community over the next six years.”
Spalding will continue to produce a dedicated Official VJBL Game Ball and Big V Game Ball, with a wide range of supporting product for game and training needs for participants.
Basketball Victoria, CEO, Nick Honey is delighted to continue the partnership with Spalding, “This Agreement will see our partnership with Spalding hit the 10-year mark, which is quite an achievement for a State Sports Organisation. We will continue to work together and strive to get a Spalding in the hand of every basketballer in Victoria, whether it’s their first ball ever or getting back on the court with mates.”
To celebrate the extended partnership, there will be a limited-time offer of 20% off Big V and VJBL balls via spalding.com.au from the 6th to the 31st of December (while stocks last, T&Cs apply).
