The Next Generation of Schelde Sports Innovation

Schelde innovations like SAM (Spring Assisted Mechanism) portable basketball goals are simple, durable and innovative, which may be why they’re the world’s #1 portable goal unit.

Just how much fun can basketball be? Schelde Sports is pushing new limits with the 3x3 SAM - the official backstop of the FIBA 3x3 World Tour and World Championships - and 3X3 Street driveway units.
