Hennessy continues to push the limits of potential with Australia’s first floating basketball court


On May 11, Hennessy, the world’s best-selling Cognac unveiled Australia’s first floating basketball court on the iconic Sydney Harbour in celebration of Hennessy, the Official Spirit of the NBA (National Basketball Association), and the league’s landmark 75th anniversary season.

The activation is the second iteration of ‘Courts Beyond Limits’, a global series of iconic pop-up courts created to celebrate the partnership. Courts Beyond Limits first premiered in Australia with a takeover of Bondi’s Icebergs Ocean Pool in May 2021
and was followed by pop-up courts in London and Shanghai.

“Together with Hennessy, we look forward to providing Australian fans with another unforgettable celebration to mark the culmination of the NBA’s historic 75th Anniversary Season.” – Hennessy President & CEO Laurent Boillot

Guests were transported via the Hennessy Superyacht to experience the unique courtside view, including an all-star basketball shootout that saw international rapping sensation FERG and Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios sinking half court shots. Hosting the court activity was local legend, Corey ‘Homicide’ Williams. The Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, the trophy awarded annually by the National Basketball Association to the winner of the NBA Finals, was also on display.

As the sun set, the court transitioned into a neon lit party with a surprise performance by FERG. Music throughout the day was provided by local DJ Olivia Suleimon & B-WISE.
But the party didn’t stop there, with guests dancing the night away and enjoying a line up of All-Star cocktails at the Hennessy X NBA Afterparty at Ivy Penthouse.
