In a collaboration between Basketball England, British Wheelchair Basketball and Birmingham 2022, a final list of 12 officials has now been drawn up ahead of this month's competition.
Congratulations to the following Technical Officials:
"Having had a number of years without a major event being held in England, I am delighted for the 12 technical officials who have been selected for such a prestigious competition.
"Looking at the crew that has been selected, I am confident that the standard of table officiating at the Games will be excellent."
The candidates were put through a thorough assessment process which included FIBA's own online training, practical game assessments at recent BE and BWB events, plus a detailed test on 3x3 specific rules and regulations.
All 12 officials will oversee the five day competition and will operate in both Basketball 3x3 and Wheelchair Basketball 3x3 competitions.
Basketball England is also delighted to announce that our Officials and Volunteers Co-ordinator Shaun Williams is currently on a sabbatical from the organisation whilst he undertakes the role of Technical Operations Manager for the 3x3 events at the Games.
He'll be responsible for the court and surroundings at the Smithfield site in Birmingham, ensuring they're in accordance with FIBA and IWBF regulations whilst co-ordinating with the Sport Competition Manager and Assistant Sport Competition Manager.
He'll also be managing the sport-specific volunteers within the site, and ensuring that athletes, team officials and technical officials are provided with the correct environment and services to perform to their best throughout the Games.
We wish Shaun and the 12 technical officials selected the very best in the coming weeks, and hope that they enjoy a successful Games.
