About 3×3 Basketball
Akin to the T20 version of cricket, 3×3 basketball is one of the fastest growing urban sports in the world. It is also played widely in Indian schools and colleges, as well as in casual neighbourhood ‘pick-up’ games.
3×3 Basketball is the fastest and shortest format of basketball in the world. All you need is one hoop, a half-court and six players. Games can be staged outdoor and indoor in iconic locations to bring basketball directly to the people. It’s a 10-minute game. Highest score in 10 minutes or first team to score 21 points wins. 3×3 is not only FIBA’s second official discipline but will be played at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, the Commonwealth Games – Birmingham 2022 and at the Paris 2024 Olympics.
