About Us

Ball Out 3x3 is a charitable community sports organisation which focuses on using sport as a tool to develop positive social, academic, physical and vocational change in young people, particularly from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

3x3 Basketball is the largest urban team sport of the world (ESSEC study commissioned by IOC) and will be an Olympic sport in the near future.  Ball Out 3x3 is the largest 3x3 basketball tournament in the nation and we are pioneers for 3x3 basketball in the UK. Our aim is to increase basketball participation and become the solution for the provision of summer basketball across the nation.

The opportunities this program offers  make a real and positive difference to young Londoner’s and socially impact communities across the city, changing lives for the better.

Coaching

We provide a FREE summer coaching programme for all ages and abilities on the best outdoor courts in the country. Professional coaching will be delivering skills and drills to all participants every weekday for 5 weeks the summer holidays across the capital.

Tournament

This year's tournament will be at Finsbury Park, Turnpike Lane and in Birmingham. We have catergories that cater for all ages, abilities both male and female. FIBA 3x3 have endorsed our event providing us with a global and extremely marketable platform with Ball Out 3x3 being an official qualifying event for the FIBA 3x3 World Tour.

We are fundraising in order to provide a number of important services such as:

  • Reduce team’s overheads
  • Court/Equipment costs
  • Tournament marketing
  • Social Media
  • Referee and Table Official Costs and Training
  • Event Management
  • Coaching Programme Expansion

Basketball is the sport of choice of inner-city youth. The fast, exciting, flamboyant style of the game and its social influence, provide the perfect platform to engage and relate to young people. Through Ball Out 3x3, we build upon these relationships and provide support and direction towards a positive end. Our agenda is to use the game of basketball to better prepare young people for the game of life, developing the characteristics and transferable life skills that contribute towards good citizenship, responsibility, respect and the pursuit of excellence and individual achievement in all the young people we reach.

We hope you can support us to change the lives of todays disadvantaged youth by donating and sharing our cause on your Twitter/Facebook accounts.
