All players MUST have a confirmed play.fiba3x3 profile to play in the 3×3 Quest Tour. Creating a profile is easy and takes only a minute. However, it is vitally important that after creating your profile, you need to reply to the confirmation email which will be sent to your chosen email address. There are three ways that you can register on play.fiba3x3.com:
If you already have a play.fiba3x3.com profile it may possibly not be a confirmed account. It is important that you confirm your email in order to receive the FIBA ranking points that you earn at events.
There are grades for men and women in the following age groups:
Molten is our ball sponsor and we will use their 3×3 ‘Libertria” ball for all categories except Open men’s, who will use the Wilson 3×3 ball. Both balls are size 6, weight 7, which is the FIBA official ball size for all FIBA 3×3 events.
Team uniforms are encouraged but not compulsory. If you don’t have a uniform then please try to coordinate the same coloured playing top. This helps our referees immensely.
In the case of bad weather please check the Basketball New Zealand Facebook page for an update. Most events have a wet-weather indoor alternative option, which we will let people know about on Facebook. However, some venues have a rain-day option (in all of these cases it is the following day). Again, please check the Basketball New Zealand Facebook page for updates.

Rules specific to the Open Men’s Grade
The Open Men’s grade at each event (excluding Christchurch Quest Final) will double as a World Tour Qualifier event, with the winner of the Open Men’s grade being eligible to play in the World Tour Qualifier Final (WTQ) in Christchurch 28th March. There will be a maximum of 10 teams in the WTQ Final. Those eligible teams that played in 3X3 Quest Tour events in the first 4 events (Auckland-West, Auckland-North, Tauranga and Wellington) will be given until 28 February 2020 to advise BBNZ of their intention to play in the WTQ Final. BBNZ will advise all teams whether they have qualified to play in the Final by 1 March 2020. Teams playing in the Dunedin event on 1st March and Christchurch event on the 7th of March will be consulted about their eligibility and qualification at the conclusion of this event.
The winning team of the WTQ Final, being held in Christchurch 28 March, will receive an all-expenses paid trip to a World Tour Masters event in Asia. This trip is funded by Basketball New Zealand and will be ex-New Zealand only.
To be eligible to enter and participate in the World Tour Qualifier a player must;
a) be a New Zealand citizen, permanent resident or hold a work visa, working holiday visa or student visa, except that a player whose nationality is not New Zealand (a foreign player), may participate in the WTQ event provided that the player has been resident in New Zealand 90 days before commencement of the WTQ Final.
b) be living in New Zealand, except that where a player is a New Zealand citizen and is otherwise eligible in all respects has recently returned from overseas, in which case they can play.
