3X3 Unites Basketball

Held on two different locations on two separate days, 3×3 Basketball is the name of the game. On Saturday junior athletes will be competing for the 010 Street Cup. On Sunday national and international pros will battle for the 010 Pro Cup but also for qualification points for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where the sport will make its first appearance.. They will be exhibiting their skills on an ‘Art Court’ which is specially designed for this occasion by Opperclaes. The other half of this court can be viewed at Rotterdam Central station in the week leading up to the festival. The whole court will be donated to a borough in the South of Rotterdam after the festival has come to a close.
