    Did you know that on average people tend to stop playing basketball after 10 minutes if they’re playing on their own? 

    It’s more difficult to stay motivated, or to find joy in playing, if you’re not accompanied by friends or teammates. 

    So, Decathlon has come up with an ingenious solution… a connected hoop sensor that enables you to play a range of solo or multiplayer games through your smartphone! 

    The sensor attaches to your hoop and can detect a missed, scored or swished shot. 

    Suddenly, solo basketball practicse is transformed into a competitive challenge - having tried it myself, I can see people getting hooked to this for hours! 

    At Decathlon we’re constantly looking for ways to use technology to innovate sporting experiences, and this is just the beginning. 

    So, are you ready to play?

    "Wow, I am still buzzing from yesterday’s launch event - what an incredible moment!

    We revealed our purpose, strategy and new brand to the world, and I’m so excited about the future. 

    As part of the event, we saw some amazing products, the new jersey for the Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale cycling team AND we heard from some super inspiring athletes.

    We heard from Teddy Riner, Méline Rollin and Romain Cannone from the Decathlon Olympic Team of athletes, as well as Sam Bennett of the DECATHLON AG2R LA MONDIALE TEAM.

    There was so much energy in the room, and we were joined by thousands of teammates from across 70 different countries!

    We’ve kicked off this new era as one big collective and I cannot wait to see where it leads us.

    Thank you to everyone who made this event possible… Now, it’s time to Move People Through the Wonders of Sport!"
