Commonwealth Games 3×3 Qualifying Tournaments
basketballscotland, in partnership with Team Scotland, are thrilled to announce new dates for the postponed 3×3 basketball Commonwealth Games Qualifying Tournament.
The qualifiers will now take place in Largs at the sportscotland Inverclyde National Sports Training Centre on April 6th for the running tournament and April 14th for the wheelchair tournament.
Scotland has four teams in the qualifiers, a men’s and women’s team in both the running and wheelchair game, who will all be competing to earn their place at the Commonwealth Games, which are set to be held in Birmingham this summer.
Scotland’s teams will go up against Wales and Northern Ireland in a round robin format, before the winning two teams face off in the final to see who will progress to the Games.
Speaking on the tournament, basketballscotland’s Head of Basketball, Barry Lang, commented: “We are delighted to be hosting such an important event in Scotland. Our basketball community have missed watching their International role models, but this Qualification Tournament will create the opportunity for our top performers to be on court competing in the 3X3 format in front of a home crowd. Our players and staff cannot wait to compete and wear a Scotland vest with Pride.”
We appreciate and acknowledge the support of our partners at Team Scotland, Commonwealth Games Federation, FIBA, IWBF, British Wheelchair Basketball and GB Basketball for supporting and endorsing this event.
