New Zealand teams feature regularly at 3x3 (pronounced 3-on-3) World Championships and now the 3x3 Asia Cup, in both men’s and women’s categories.
Our U18 3x3 Men have won the U18 3x3 World Championships twice.
In June 2017, the International Olympic Committee named 3x3 as an Olympic sport for Japan 2020.
3x3 has continued to rise in popularity and FIBA have thrown an exceptional amount of resource to grow their international 3x3 events. These are well produced, action-packed tournaments. The 3x3 game is fast, slick and perfect for spectators because of the entertainment factor.
