Will you be joining the NBL 3×3 Street Hustle Peninsula Tour?
Ummm, what is that exactly?
Well, it’s an exciting and brand new concept in the 3×3 basketball space. It’s a tour, like the pro’s go on but it’s right here in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula over the upcoming school holidays. There are 4 tour stops:
- STOP 1: Somerville Recreation Centre September 24th
- STOP 2: Mornington Basketball Stadium September 26th
- STOP 3: Frankston Basketball Stadium September 30th
- STOP 4: INVITATION ONLY FINAL Mornington October 2nd. You can only WIN your way through to the final where PRIZE MONEY is up for grabs by entering earlier tour stops. The more points you get through playing, the higher your chances are of winning through.
But what actually is 3×3 Street Hustle basketball?
The rules laid out simply:
- 3 starters, one sub – that’s your squad.
- Half the size but twice as fast – We play on one basket in a half-court setting.
- Beyond the arc is 2 points, any other basket is worth 1 point.
- First to 21 points or play out the 10 minutes – that’s how you win.
- Official 3×3 basketball is used, it’s a Size 6 with the weight of a Size 7.
- Fouls: 6 team fouls.
- Fouls 7, 8, 9: the penalty is 2 free throws.
- Fouls 10 or more receive 2 free throws + ball possession.
- 1 or 2 referees per game.
Looks good doesn’t it? It’s fast, hustling and above all else FUN.
So you mentioned points and prize money?
At each stop you will gain points as follows:
- Entry = 1
- Finals = 3
- Runner Up = 4
- Winner = 5
At each stop you can win:
- U12’s & U14’s: shoot out, prizes
- U16’s & U18’s: winner takes home $500 (each age group & gender)
- U12/14’s win: 1st – $250, 2nd – $200, 3rd – $100
- U16/18’s win: 1st – $750, 2nd – $250, 3rd – $150
- All winners get their names on the Perpetual Trophy
Who can enter:
Entries are limited to 10 teams per age group (U12/14/16/18) and gender (male/female). We recommend forming a team of 4. That way you’ll have a sub, which if you have played before you know you will need, and if you haven’t played before you will need!
So the big question is;
