Cool Sh*t, Sydney / 24 May 2021

Hennessy has launched a series of baller experiences inside Sydney’s most iconic lap pool to celebrate the NBA playoffs 2021.

Just when you thought Bondi couldn’t get any cooler, the worlds largest cognac producer Hennessy has transformed Icebergs Pool into a beachside basketball court. The night before the playoffs, Hennessy and the NBA brought their partnership to Australian shores to turn Sydney’s most insta-famous pool into a playing ground. Designed by Studio Messa, the monochrome court stands out against the turqoise waters making this the most picturesque court to play basketball worldwide. This may just be the only time you’d see ballers shooping hoops with a backdrop of surfers taking 3 foot waves into the shores.
Fromer NBA players Andrew Bogut and Corey Williams were joined by Australian tennis phenomenon Nick Kyrgious for the officially court launch on Saturday, May 22. Kyrgious proved he’s a master at multiple ball sports when he beat a group of contestants in a half-court shot competition. Musician Flex Mami manned the decks and kept spirits high all morning with a mix of hip hop and R&B tracks.

NBA fans and Henny lovers alike can expect an epic lineup of baller experiences and entertainment in the months ahead. Think sneaker collaborations, ‘All-Star’ Hennessy cocktail expereiences, Hennessy street food, NBA game viewing parties and acess to exclusive Hennessy x NVA merchandise.

For a once in a lifetime shot, Hennessy x NBA will also realease a $100K SHOT competition beginning June 7 until the end of July.
