Ball Out 3x3 are proud to announce our collaboration with British Wheelchair Basketball. We are extremely excited to present the addition of the first wheelchair divisions to the tournament.
Working together we will be running a junior and adult category to be played in Finsbury Park, London. This will take place on July 17/18 with the wheelchair division played on an FIBA 3x3 court that will be created especially for this division.
We are really pleased to be working with BWB, together we hope to introduce 3x3 to a wider audience. With just over a year to go until the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, we can’t wait to show how inclusive and exciting the sport is during our biggest year of events yet.
To register please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your team name and name of your team administrator.
All team members need to have one of the 2020/21 BWB Memberships (adult/ junior/pre-season adult or pre-season junior) and a player licence. A maximum squad of four is permitted along with one team staff member, who must also be registered for 2020/21 and appropriately licenced.
Commenting on this exciting news, British Wheelchair Basketball’s Development Director, Jo Richards said:
“Ball Out 3×3 has a fantastic reputation of delivering brilliant 3×3 events so we’re really excited to be able to partner with Ball Out 3×3 as Wheelchair Basketball competition is added to this fantastic showcase of 3×3 for the first time.
3×3 Wheelchair Basketball is a new but really exciting format which will no doubt make it one of the sports to watch at next year’s Commonwealth Games. The Ball Out 3×3 event will be a fantastic way to continue the countdown to Birmingham 2022 and our development of a 3×3 pathway moving forward.
