New Zealand teams feature regularly at 3×3 (pronounced 3-ex-3) World Championships and now the 3×3 Asia Cup, in both men’s and women’s categories. We continue to punch above our weight on the 3×3 court, below a number of incredible achievements over the years:
2011 – U18 3×3 Men World Championship winners
2015 – U18 3×3 Men World Championships winners
2018 – 3×3 Tall Ferns won the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup
2018 – U18 3×3 Men won the FIBA 3×3 Asia Cup
2019 – U18 3×3 Women won silver at the World Championships
In June 2017, the International Olympic Committee named 3×3 as an Olympic sport for Japan 2020 and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Game, and we hope to have either our women or men qualify in the near future.
