There will be eight courts running dunk and three-point competitions, as well as DJs and dancers, and tons of prizes up for grabs in a full weekend of outdoor basketball action. All competitors will receive a reversible FIBA Europe jersey to keep and wear on the day and winners from each age category will receive a ticket to a GB international game in Sheffield.
Here's a breakdown of the how weekend's competition will work:
Saturday 7 July
(Games to start from 10am onwards)
Open Male (any age)
U18 Men and Women
U16 Boys and Girls
U14 Boys and Girls
Sunday 8 July
(Games to start from 11am onwards)
Open Female (any age)
U17 Boys and Girls
U15 Boys and Girls
U13 Boys and Girls
Masters Men (40+)
Masters Women (35+)
* Age groups will be based on the school year, or EBL eligibility from the 2011/12 season. In other words, if you were U18 on 1 September 2011 then you can enter the U18 3-on-3 competition, and so on for other age groups.
**All teams entering competitions that are U18 and younger must provide the name of a team leader who is over 18 years of age.
Entries must be made from teams of 4 (3 players with a sub) and players may enter in more than one age category, but we recommend doing so on different competition days. For example, if you enter Open Male we wouldn't advise entering another competition on Saturday in case there is a scheduling conflict.
To enter your team, please download the entry form and follow the enclosed instructions. Entries cost £10 per team and the deadline is Friday 29 June.
This inaugural event is being held in conjunction with FIBA Europe's 3-on-3 program, whose summer-long tour of the continent has already visited several cities including Leon, Ljubljana and Bucharest.
