3x3 Basketball on the FISU sports programme

FISU's history in the 3x3 game goes back to just about the official start of the sport itself in 2010; both the first and second FISU World University 3x3 Basketball Championships were attributed in May 2011 to the National University Sports Federation of Serbia and of Brazil, respectively. In 2012 the championship took place in Kragujevac (SRB), 2014 in Salvador (BRA), and from 2015 onwards in Xiamen (CHN). 

 

3x3 Basketball is a game anyone can play, anywhere in the world. With teams composed of three players, plus one possible substitute, it is easy to field a team. All you need is a hoop, a ball, some team-mates and a little competition. There isn't even a mandatory surface; a tournament can take place on concrete, asphalt or an existing/temporary court. There’s no halftime, no quarters, and the energy levels are at the maximum.

 

The sport is tailor-made for university students. The games are played outdoors, surrounded by music, entertainment and cheering fans. Each game lasts a maximum of 10 minutes. There’s a 12-second shot clock, ensuring teams take risks by attacking the rim and launching shots deep beyond the perimeter.
