About Downtown

Founded in late 2013, Downtown has quickly become Australia’s most highly respected hub of locally-produced national and international basketball content.  We produce original feature articles, podcasts, blogs, radio programs and more, all to the highest quality.

Australian basketball fans deserve a site that covers the NBA, NBL and all basketball culture that is geared directly towards them. Here it is!


What they’re saying about Downtown:

“Finding downtownball.net and the Downtown podcast was like finding a treasure trove of insights, interviews and useful analysis.  Unquestionably a real asset to NBL fans and professionals who work with the league as it’s not only educational but also entertaining which is an important balance to establish and they get it right every time.”

Andrew Mulligan (@Andrew_Mulligan) Sky Sport NZ TV Presenter


“In a remarkably short space of time the Downtown guys have established themselves as a go-source for hardcore hoops heads and general sports fans alike.  With a finely-honed blend of expert knowledge and creative thinking they have brought to life a site and podcast that are unlike anything else in Australia.  They know plenty about basketball and - it seems clear - just as much about making a go of things in the competitive world of digital new media.”

Daniel Silkstone (@DanSilkstone) Deputy Director of News - The Age (Fairfax)


“In my opinion downtownball.net is Australia’s leader in bringing all aspects of the NBL to the fans.  The Downtown team are always very professional and easy to work with which I appreciate.  Their feature articles and podcasts are informative, entertaining and refreshing.”

Aaron Fearne, Head Coach Cairns Taipans (2015 NBL Coach of the Year)
