The Ball Out 3x3 Championship is an initiative that’s been in action for eight years. Year on year the tournament has grown to a huge national competition in summer 2021 with events across the UK.

3x3 Basketball is the largest urban team sport of the world (ESSEC study commissioned by IOC) and will be an Olympic sport in the near future. Ball Out 3x3 is the largest 3x3 basketball tournament in the nation and we are pioneers for 3x3 basketball in the UK. Our aim is to increase basketball participation and become the solution for the provision of summer basketball across the nation.

As an organisation we are committed to inspiring people to pick up, develop and excel within our sport.

FIBA 3x3 have endorsed our event providing us with a global and extremely marketable platform with Ball Out 3x3 being an official qualifying event for the FIBA 3x3 World Tour. The FIBA 3x3 World Tour is an international tour of 3x3 basketball teams representing cities across 6 continents.  

We are currently searching for partnership and sponsorship opportunities for the Ball Out 3x3 Championships in 2021. Last event was really exciting with over 1400 participants and this year we are making history with 10 events.

We are confident you will be pleased with the exposure we can provide. As well as exposure via social media we can provide website presence, courtside branding, branded gazebo’s, local TV & newspapers mentions and other opportunities for marketing.

NIKE 

We are excited to announce Nike as our main official sponsor for 2019, we have been working closely with the brand to give our participants the best experience possible this summer.

Nike's mission statement is to "bring inspiration and innovation to every athlete* in the world." Note the asterisk after "athlete." Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman reportedly added the asterisk, explaining that "if you have a body, you are an athlete." In other words, Nike's goal is to inspire you, whether you're an NFL quarterback or a hobbyist sprinter, or you just want to wear Nike gear as you go about your daily errands.

The company's message of inclusiveness can be taken as encouragement for everyone to be active. Nike has run ad campaigns featuring athletes who are wheelchair-bound and who pursue their passions for sports. From a financial perspective, Nike's mission statement also widens the company's scope to pursue anyone and everyone as a potential customer for its merchandise.

Kobe Bryant holds a special place in the heart of every basketball fan - someone who truly left everything on the court, where his achievements range from legendary to seemingly impossible. The Mamba Forever Edition celebrates Kobe's lifelong pursuit of victory and legacy and immortalizes him with two unique custom covers honoring the span of his career. For the current generation version of the game, Kobe is shown wearing #8 – from his days as a bold and brash rookie. In the next-generation cover art, he is shown wearing #24, the number he played his final game in: his iconic 60-point performance.

Nando's will be partnering with us on event days the summer to provide that delicious chicken everyone loves.

The Nando’s story started centuries ago, when the Portuguese explorers set sail for the East. The winds of Africa called them ashore and it was there that they were introduced to the African Bird’s Eye Chilli – more commonly known as PERi-PERi. A spice like no other, they used it to create a unique PERi-PERi sauce that put fire in their bellies and ignited passion in their souls.
