The International Olympic Committee says 3x3 Basketball is the fastest growing urban sport in the world, and it was given "official sport status" in the upcoming 2020 Olympics. That said, the Northeast 3x3 Basketball Federation has announced its Inaugural Summer Tournament that will take place August 4, 5 and 6th at the Burgo Basketball Association courts in Dartmouth.

At least 600 players and 150 different teams will participate in this family friendly celebration of a very popular sport. This event is the brainchild of sports and business leaders, Zach Rocha, Steve Burgo, Manny DeBrito, Bill Shea and Marques Houtman.

The ages range from 9 to 30 years and over. The competitive divisions are open for men and women. This is a big weekend for everyone concerned. We wish all concerned the very best!
