3x3 Basketball.

3x3 is a form of the game that has become a lot more popular in recent years. Still played with most of the same basic rules as regular 5x5 basketball, 3x3 is generally seen as much more fast-paced and exciting.

Fewer players, and only played over half a court rather than a full sized court, games are usually shorter in length so they’re over quickly.
With only one basket being used by both teams, the tactics for playing on offence and defence are very different.

2020 Olympic games

3x3 Basketball will be played as an Olympic sport for the first time at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
This is due to the massive surge in popularity of 3x3 basketball over the last few years as well as the highly successful FIBA 3x3 World Cup.
