Schelde Sports was founded in 1892 as a specialist manufacturer and installer of school furniture and basic physical education equipment. Over the years, as the importance of competition sports grew, the focus gradually shifted to the design and manufacture of high quality equipment for basketball, volleyball, handball and other ball- and team sports apparatus.

At present, in-house expertise and international exposure at major international tournaments and championships have gained Schelde Sports an enviable reputation of trendsetter and innovator in the field of portable as well as suspended basketball backstop units for professional and high-level competition use.

In 2010 Schelde Sports was acquired by the JF Group and its equipment is being marketed worldwide by JF International, based in Helmond, the Netherlands.
