“The heart of the game is that you can play basketball anywhere,” said Halo Ball partner Chris Bauman. “I don’t know what that will be, but I know it’s a lot of fun right now.”
The idea for Halo Ball came to the inventor Brandon Ng in a college dormitory room at the University of Houston in April of this year. Ng needed to start a business to be accepted into the school’s entrepreneurship program and was encouraged to create a Halo Ball that would help reduce injuries that occur at the base of outdoor basketball hoops.
“Why should Paul always be there? I just came up with the idea. There is no Paul, let’s put a string on the side,” says Ng. After prototyping, Ng partnered with his longtime friend Kevan Bauman to help design the game and create the rules. With the help of Baumann and his brother Chris, the first unit of Hello Ball sold out quickly.
“We are all huge athletes at Halo Ball,” Bauman said. “I think our hope is that the world will accept it and use it to do great things.”
All you need to play Halo Ball is two sturdy trees to attach the hoop ratchet line. A set of 1 and 2 hoops is available at Halo Ball website..
