WHAT IS 3×3 BASKETBALL?

3×3 basketball is a new style of basketball – exciting, fast-paced, physical and intense.

3×3 basketball has always been popular in the urban environment but only recently has it become an official sport, receiving official endorsement from FIBA [International Basketball Federation] in 2010. Since then, the sport has experienced a massive surge in popularity both within Australia and globally, and will be included in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

3×3 Basketball is played on a single half-court with one basket, with two teams of three players and up to one substitute per team. Games are won by either being the first team to 21 points or having the most points after 10 minutes. Shot-clock is only 12-seconds.
