What is Spoonball?
Stephen Spoonhour is one of two sons of Basketball Coach Charlie Spoonhour. The company name “Spoonball” originated from the nickname given to his father’s brand of basketball while coaching at Missouri State (formerly Southwest Missouri State) then followed him to St. Louis University and UNLV. Like his father, Stephen Spoonhour’s knowledge, passion and humor give him the innate ability to relate to clients and making them and their projects top priority.
“It’s my love of the game that keeps me going in this industry, youth and professional sports are a very competitive industry and to be a part of it is challenging and exciting. Whether Spoonball Sports is installing a residential basketball goal in a driveway or in the construction of a major athletic facility; I find great satisfaction in knowing the relationships created from the equipment we install between owners, athletes, coaches and families can last a lifetime”
