Why Basketbull

The name BasketBull comes from the late William “Bull” Martin, who is related (as father or grandfather) to the owners of BasketBull, Mike Martin, Bob Martin and Colin Tabb. “Bull” Martin was a devoted family man and friend, while also owning a passion for the game of basketball, after starring at Providence College. “Bull” passed away in 1997 and when different names were being tossed around for the company, BasketBull was agreed upon in his honor.
