Ben Simmons was crowned Rookie of the Year earlier this year in the prestigious US National Basketball Competition – The NBA.
A Melbourne boy, Ben attended school at Box Hill Senior Secondary College prior to moving to the USA. Ben was an Australian Institute of Sport Scholarship holder. In Melbourne he played for the Bulleen Boomers. A talented AFL footballer, he made the choice to focus on being a professional basketball player as a teenager.
Although holding Dual US/Australian Citizenship, Ben has made it clear he wishes to represent Australia at the Tokyo 2020 olympic Games.
Ben Simmons, like many juniors in Victoria, began playing on Sports Flooring constructed by Nellakir. Sprung Timber Sports Flooring is the basis for competitive championship basketball. Ben was a member of the Knox Raiders Basketball team as a ten year old junior. A premium court surface and foundations create the very best environment for perfecting the skills of the game.
With a salary of $6.17 million per annum and a lucrative sponsorship deal with Nike, Ben Simmons is probably Australia’s highest paid sportsman.
Right now Nellakir have built and installed premium sports flooring at major Sports Stadiums around Victoria as well as many new courts in both Private School arenas and Primary and Secondary State Schools.
Our next champion is probably playing out there right now in the suburbs of Melbourne or in a regional Victorian town on a champion surface built and maintained by Nellakir.
