3X3 back in Moama

Published on 10 March 2023


Champions League Basketball (CLB) and Murray River Council will be bringing a 3x3 basketball competition back to Moama in April, giving locals of all ages and abilities a chance to get active and have some fun!

Held at the Moama Anglican Grammar School’s outdoor basketball court, the 2-day extravaganza will combine elite sport with grassroots activity and deliver a festival of 3X3 action.

3X3 basketball is simple and flexible enough to be played anywhere and by anyone; all you need is a hoop, a half-court and six players.

The Moama event will be a terrific chance for people in the local region to register with a few mates and give the sport a try.

Murray River Council mayor, Chris Bilkey said the Moama event will be a great opportunity for past, current and future basketball players to experience another pathway in which they can play basketball at a junior or elite level.

“The event was really well received last time it came to Moama, so we have jumped at the chance of being able to bring the event to the region once again.”

“The event is suitable for all levels of ability; ranging from those who are familiar with 3X3 basketball to those who have never played basketball before, so I’d encourage locals to register and get involved,” Cr Bilkey said.

Players can register to compete in the Open’s Competition on Saturday 1 April and the Juniors Comp (U13’s, U15’s and U18’s) on Sunday 2 April.

The event is a great way to earn valuable FIBA 3X3 ranking points, win prize money in the Opens, prizes in the Juniors and enjoy plenty of court time!

Entry is free for spectators to come along and enjoy the atmosphere and see the rising talent come out on top during the finals each day.

Registrations are $150 per team.
