Mason Gordon is the creator and co-founder of SlamBall, a sport that emerged from a recurring dream that persisted across years. Gordon envisioned a hybrid sport that combined the elements from basketball, football, rugby, trampoline, and hockey – all flowing seamlessly together into something new.
He constructed the first court in a warehouse out of discarded gymnastics parts. The resulting game is high-impact, high-flying, and wildly competitive – generating sensational moments with a “did you see that?” viral appeal. Previously, Mason served as the President of Mandalay Sports Media, a best-in-class sports media company specializing in premium documentary storytelling.
In that capacity, Gordon produced, directed, and developed a strong slate of high-quality projects, often incorporating a sports component to access deeper personal narratives.
