CLB 3X3 Basketball is back!!

Coming back to the Langtree Mall on Friday May 27 to Sunday May 29, CLB 3X3 Basketball, the Mildura Rural City Council and the Mildura City Heart brings you 3 days of 3X3 action.

An event aimed at all ages & all abilities, the sport of 3X3 basketball is a great way for people from all over the area to get involved and have some fun.

The event combines elite sport with grassroots, with pre-registered games, or free-for-all participation, 3-point shoot outs, slam dunk contests and mini clinics.

3X3 is simple and flexible enough to be played anywhere and by anyone. All you need is a hoop, a half-court and six players. The event weekend provides a terrific chance to register with a few mates and give the sport a try for the very first time.

Mildura Mayor Liam Wood said it was exciting to welcome 3X3 basketball to the Sunraysia region.

“This is a great opportunity for our community to participate and enjoy this growing and exciting form of basketball,” Cr Wood said.

“CLB3X3 have come up with a fantastic format that makes 3X3 basketball accessible to such a broad range of people, as well as providing a great atmosphere for spectators to enjoy.”

Players can register to compete in a range of competitions over the weekend from a Corporate Social Night held on Friday 27th May from 6pm onwards, (a great way to network and keep fit) or as a Opens division player on Saturday 28th May from 12pm onwards and lastly as a Juniors player U13’s to U18’s on Sunday 29th May from 10am for their chance to win great prizes and world ranking points….or you might just want to come along as a spectator and enjoy the atmosphere and see the rising talent come out on top during the Finals each day.

Registrations are $120 per team for the Juniors, $150 per team for the Open’s and $150 for the Corporate Cup.

Players who register will have an official FIBA profile for their country and can see their points go live under their profile after the event and receive a ranking for their country.

Players are required to set up their own profile via the www.play.fiba3x3.com and using the same website they can then register a team of 3-4 players per team or simply head to www.clb3x3.com/events and search for “Mildura” to find your category. **
