Jordan Sandler with his best friend Matt Walker founded HoopNow. Both have been involved with basketball most of their lives. Jordan and Matt strongly believe that every child and young person of any ability deserves to have the same opportunity to participate and thrive in a team sports environment.
Jordan and Matt understand there are many barriers to inclusion for children and young people living with a disability and this is how HoopNow was launched.
