Ball Out 3x3 Tour 2022: The action get under way at Finsbury Park this weekend

The Ball Out 3x3 Tour gets under way this weekend at London's Finsbury Park.

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 also held at the popular Finsbury Park courts as part of a huge summer for 3x3 basketball in the UK. 

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. 

The tournament will add to the excitement as the countdown continues towards Team England's aim 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.
