“We thank the Punjab Basketball Association for entrusting us with this unique opportunity. 3BL’s mission is to grow the 3x3 format of basketball across the length and breadth of India. What better place to start our regional initiatives than Punjab, which is known for producing India’s most sought-after basketball players. Thanks to 3BL’s recognition by FIBA, the Punjab Open 3x3 C’ship will also be ‘FIBA 3x3 endorsed’ which means that every player will receive FIBA 3x3 points.

“Punjab has always led from the front in putting a basketball in the hands of its youngsters. We hope that our boys and girls will shine in 3x3 basketball just like they have been doing in the 5x5 format,” Shri Teja Singh, Punjab Basketball Association Secretary-General said.
