3x3 Basketball is played on a half basketball court with one hoop where two teams with three players on each side face each other. 3x3 is widely played throughout the world in street courts, yards, parks, squares, basketball courts and gyms.
One of the biggest strengths of 3x3 basketball is its simplicity both in terms of rules and in terms of required facilities, allowing it to be held in the most spectacular settings, using iconic landmarks as backdrops.
