Champions League Basketball or CLB, is heading to Griffith for the first time in it's six year history, as part of the Street Scapes festival.
CLB have been travelling around the region since 2014, bringing three-on-three basketball games to areas in order to promote the sport and get communities involved.
The events typically run for three days over a weekend, and offer a variety of competitions aimed at all skill levels and age groups. In addition to the pre-registered games, they're also promising a range of smaller competitions such as 3-point shootouts, dunking contests and miniature clinics.
Tourism manager for Griffith City Council Mirella Guidolin is excited to host the CLB competition this year.
"We are really excited to host CLB3x3 for the first time during Street Scapes this May. After seeing the event grow so much in Wagga Wagga over the last few years, we can't wait to see how this event can help us build Sports Tourism in Griffith."
3X3 basketball has taken Wagga by storm, with the city now installing a permanent facility in partnership with Champions League Basketball. This is coinciding with the addition of the game to the Olympic roster, being featured in the Tokyo Olympics later this year.
Director of Champions League Basketball Yvette Williams said that the goal for the event was simple.
"We just want to see as many kids and adults as active as possible. We come to town for three days, we want to get as many people out as we can."
The games will include a social competition on Friday night, an open division on Saturday and finish up on Sunday with the Juniors games. Spectators are also invited to come enjoy the show and cheer on the competitors.
The Griffith event will be held from May 14 to May 16 in the Visitor Information Centre car park, and is currently looking for registrations. Interested teams can find more information about how to register online.
