National 3x3 Tourney Set To Take Place In Manchester

The National Performance Centre In Manchester will play host to a 3x3 National Tournament, set to tip-off from 11AM tomorrow.

The tournament will consist of EABL and WEABL programmes and some of their top players including WNBL D1 and WEABL Champions, CoLA, as well as the EABL champs in Charnwood College. 

Each team will play each other once in a group stage format, with the top 8 teams moving onto the knockout stages which will ultimately determine the winner and the new 3x3 National Champion. 

With the game of 3x3 growing and becoming increasingly popular across the globe, it's expansion into WEABL and EABL competition is far from surprising. The sport has had an everlasting presence within British Basketball culture; some may even say that it's been one of the only things holding it up with events like BallOut 3x3 and The RedBull 3x3 competitions. 

There has not been any announcement by Basketball England of a live stream to watch the games, but there will be live game results updated on the FIBA 3x3 website.
