British Basketball has announced the 3×3 women’s squad for the FIBA Under-18 Europe Cup qualifiers that are taking place this weekend in Latvia.
British Basketball Chief Executive, Lisa Wainwright, commented:
“We are delighted to be able to give our U18 players another opportunity to represent Great Britain on the European stage. It is an exciting time for the 3×3 discipline, with the International Olympic Committee recently confirming 3×3 Basketball as an Olympic sport for Tokyo 2020 and, hopefully, for future Olympiads. Playing for the GB U18 3×3 teams this summer could be the first step along a path that may end in Olympic participation for these players.”
