Hula Hoops today announced a three-year extension to their partnership with Basketball Ireland at the launch of a FIBA endorsed 3x3 outdoor tournament to be held in Dublin in May.

The national 3x3 event will take place at Dundrum Town Centre on Saturday, May 12th, 2018, and will see teams from across the Basketball Ireland National Leagues compete to be crowned Hula Hoops 3x3 champions.

Irish international 3x3 star Grainne Dwyer, who was part of the hugely successful Ireland Women’s 3x3 team that qualified for the Europe Cup last summer, added: “Having been to some of these tournaments abroad, it is so exciting that we are going to have a big event here in Ireland. 3x3 is such an exciting form of the game and I think people will really enjoy it when they see it in Dundrum.”

The Hula Hoops 3x3 National Championships will take place at Dundrum Town Centre on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 with free admission.
