The Big Bang Ballers are an association of that uses sports activities and specifically basketball as a tool for social inclusion, education, solidarity, and living-together in France and abroad.
Our main actions are divided in three goals :
– Promote alternative socially positive sports activities to the Basketball Community
– Provide access to the benefits of sports to those who are apart from it
– Induce gender equality and multi-cultural encounter through sports
A testimonial :
