BAll- CONTACT through Henk’s eyes:
“In a world where computergames, mobile phones even at a very young age, Facebook, Twitter and other social media have changed our, once so active, children into non moving creatures, I ask myself how can i change this or somehow influence it. In all my years of basketball there is a red line running through my carreer and that is passing the passion i have for sports and basketball being number one. After so many years of working for other companies that used my talents well i created my own company. I bring you Ball-Contact Sportservice where everyone is special and in all fairness, all budgets will do.
We hope to meet you some time
