    3X3 local streets to the Olympics?...
    3X3 is considered the number one urban team sport. 3x3 is simple and flexible enough to be played anywhere by anybody. All you need is a hoop, a half-court, and six players. The rules are very simple and designed to make it a fast, spectacular and exciting game. The non-stop music brings an authentic urban culture atmosphere, which attracts a new young audience to the games. On June 9, 2017, 3x3 was added to the Olympic Program, starting from the Tokyo 2020 Games.
