3-ON-3 BASKETBALL 2014

Date: 22/11/2014 to 23/11/2014

Time: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm

Location: D' Marquee, Downtown East


On 22 & 23 November, Downtown East D’ Marquee was buzzing with activities and adrenaline-pumping action. A whopping turnout of 1,035 players from 249 teams came to participate in our iconic U Games 3-On-3 Basketball tournament over the two days. Top that off with supporters, fans and many curious bystanders… this is the biggest crowd we’ve hosted at our Basketball event yet!

 

     
 

Apart from the on court action, participants and supporters got to team up with NBA Superstars and play basketball… on our stationed PlayStation4 consoles, that is! Gaming aside, we also had inflatables shootouts and skills challenges conducted by the emcee to keep everyone engaged throughout the event. Participants got to purchase matching jerseys and apparels from our official apparel sponsor, Vikerz, at huge discounted rates.

 

     
 

Sunday was packed with even more surprises. A pint-sized boy from the U12 category outshone all other participants, including full grown men, to win the 3-Point Shootout contest!  Everyone had their eyes on the real stars as the Singapore Slingers  - Delvin Goh, Wong Wei Long and Tan Chin Hong, came on court to spar against invited local artistes – Jeffery Xu, Benjamin Heng, Zhang Zhen Huan and Lee Teng. It was an intense competition with a display of sleek moves and the match ended in a draw. It’s safe to say that no egos were hurt… except for starstruck court-side fans.

 

Congratulations to all winning teams! Even for those that didn’t, the camaraderie and sportsmanship was inspiring to see.

Yours Sincerely,

The U Sports Team
