Rules (by FIBA 3×3)

  1. Each team consists of three (3) players and one (1) substitute (both genders allowed).
  2. The game is played on a half-court, with one basket.
  3. A coin toss is held immediately before the game for deciding which team starts the match. The winning team can choose to take possession of the ball at the start of the game, or take the first possession of a potential overtime period.
  4. In any held ball situation, the defensive team is granted possession.
  5. Every successful shot inside the arc is awarded one point, while every successful shot behind the arc is awarded two points.
  6. The game is a single period of 10 minutes with sudden death at 21 points. The winner is the first team to score 21 or the team with the highest score at the end of the 10 minutes. A tie in regulation leads to an untimed overtime period, which is won by the first team to score two points in overtime. Note that if a game is tied at 20 at the end of regulation, reaching 21 does not end the game.
  7. Game play starts with the defensive team exchanging the ball with the offensive team behind the arc (a.k.a. check-ball). This exchange is also used to restart the game from any dead ball situation. If a foul is committed that results in the non-fouling team retaining possession — i.e., a technical or “unsportsmanlike” foul — the non-fouling team will receive the exchange.
  8. A team should make their offense within 24 seconds. The officials can point to the team to make a shot as soon as possible.
  9. If the defense gains possession of the ball within the arc, by a steal, a block or a rebound, the team must move the ball behind the arc before being allowed to take a shot.
  10. After a made goal or free throw (except for technical or unsportsmanlike fouls), play restarts with a player from the non-scoring team taking the ball directly under the basket and then dribbling or passing it to a point behind the arc. The defense is not allowed to play for the ball inside the block/charge semi-circle under the basket.
  11. Substitution procedure can occur only in a dead ball situation. Substitute can only enter from behind the end line opposite the basket, and the substitution becomes official once the player leaving the game has made physical contact with the substitute. Unlike the full-court game, no action from referees or table officials is required.
  12. Each team is allowed one timeout.
  13. Individual personal foul counts are not kept. In other words, players cannot be disqualified on the basis of personal fouls. However, a player who commits two unsportsmanlike fouls is disqualified!
  14. Fouls during the act of shooting inside the arc are awarded 1 free throw, whilst fouls during the act of shooting behind the arc are awarded 2 free throws.
  15. Technical fouls (including unsportsmanlike fouls) result in two free throws plus possession of the ball.

P.S. Small adjustments can be announced by organisers on the day of the tournament (e.g. single game time etc.).
