‘Ball Out 3x3 in partnership with Basketball England’ will feature six qualifying events across the country in June and July, culminating in two days of national finals in London.
Ball Out will return to the capital, Newcastle, Essex – visiting the spectacular new 3x3 courts at Writtle University College – and Manchester, with a new stop in Nottingham.
The half-court form of the game is set to explode this year as part of a summer bonanza for the sport, with Ball Out leading the way.
Great Britain return to FIBA 3x3 Europe Cup action and Team England will go for glory on the 3x3 courts at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July and August, with Ball Out chief Julius Joseph coaching England's men.
Registration is open from Monday 11 April.
"Following the success of last summer’s national tour, we are excited to provide another opportunity for players from around the country to get involved. It’s a huge year for 3x3 basketball with the Commonwealth Games debuting 3x3 and we are looking forward to a great summer of basketball.”
“What an exciting summer we are in for, with 3x3 right at the heart of our #GameTime campaign to get even more people involved in basketball. It’s great to team up with the pioneering Ball Out organisation once again and keep building on the work done so far.
“Last year was a huge success and we’re looking to keep that momentum going as we look forward to seeing Team England’s men and women chasing medals at the Commonwealth Games.”
Basketball has the power to change lives. The #GameTime campaign will aim to raise awareness of the positive impact that our sport can have on people no matter who they are or where they are from.
Basketball England aims to engage one million people in basketball via the Commonwealth Games 2022, 3x3 and more.
