This weekend, two final qualifying rounds for the 2023 JD Ball Out 3×3 National Tour, presented in association with Basketball England, will take place.
The 2022 Commonwealth Games’ double 3×3 medal victory by Team England was commemorated at the Tour’s stop in Birmingham last weekend. Before the tour concludes with two days of national finals back at Finsbury Park, there will be more qualifiers at Writtle University in Essex on Saturday and in Manchester on Sunday. The London qualifier had kicked things off the previous weekend.
Ball Out 3×3 has a new headline sponsor in JD, who will work with Basketball England to make the event even more successful.

Basketball’s speedier, shorter style was the highlight of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, with Smithfield in Birmingham serving as the venue for an amazing 3×3 competition.
Myles Hesson, a homegrown star, and teammates Orlan Jackman, Kayne Henry, and Jamell Anderson—led by Ball Out 3×3 founder and CEO Julius Joseph—won basketball’s first-ever gold medal for England, while Hannah Jump, Chantelle Handy, Cheridene Green, and Shanice Beckford-Norton—who represented England’s women—finished the night with a well-earned silver medal.
