Driving positive social change with 3x3 basketball
Welcome to the GG3x3. We’re the UK’s largest non-profit platform dedicated to inspiring people to play and connect through the game of 3x3 basketball, no matter their ability, age, race, size or background.
We provide training for young ballers, run multi-ability tournaments, including the UK's largest one day 3x3 tournament, and lead community initiatives.

What's 3x3 basketball?
Born from street basketball, the 3x3 game made its debut on the Olympic stage this summer and will be in the Olympic Games in Paris this year!
It's 1 and 2 pointers only
6 players on a court, with teams of 3 and 1 sub
There's no check ball
You play on a half court with one hoop only
Games last 10 minutes or when a team reaches 21 points
How it began
Starting as a one-off charity tournament in 2017 to commemorate basketball player, George Goldstone, who sadly passed away to cancer, the GG3x3 has evolved to become the UK’s largest community-led movement that champions 3x3 basketball.
Kind words from the community
"Thanks for running the 3x3 tournament and kids clinic...it was incredible. Like you say, basketball brings everyone together, so thank you for an AMAZING event."
