The Birth of Andrew Bogut Basketball

In 2006 after completing his rookie season, Andrew was in preparations for Australia’s 2006 World Championship campaign in Japan. As he was trying to get back into shape to be ready for the National Team preparations, Andrew started his Basketball and Weights training. Being in America for the last 3 years, Andrew had forgotten how hard it was to access a basketball venue at suitable times to his training program on a daily basis. Usually these facilities only have small windows where the courts are free for casual use, prompting to training cancellations caused by the court being rented out to schools/public last minute. The other problem was that most basketball related venues don’t have a weights/strength and conditioning venue. Along with the previous two points, Andrew also treats recovery as importantly as any other training tool. (ice baths, spas, pool workouts)


Now, all these facilities are available, but rarely under roof with one membership fee, and the fact you would have to drive from place to place to get each form of training done really got time consuming. This prompted Andrew to purchase a basic building in a brand new industrial area in Carrum Downs, located in Melbourne’s South Eastern suburbs. What followed was the slow process of setting out to build all of the above under one roof. 5 years since the purchase of the building and we have Andrew Bogut Basketball. The only private venue dedicated solely to basketball players and their passion to get better. A basketball factory was born.
