QUB 3v3 fundraiser

Last week, the men’s and women’s teams from Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) ran a 3v3 tournament to help raise funds for the upcoming inter-varsity tournament. This April, the University of Limerick (UL) will host the nationally recognised event and both teams from QUB will be competing against other universities and colleges from across Ireland.

The fundraiser brought together a rather interesting mix of participants, many of whom looked like they were dressed for rugby, gaelic or football. It was great to see so many people getting a chance to play the game, regardless of their experience (or talent). There were even some old, retired, players at the event. Check out the video to see who all was there:

Co-founder of The Courtside Collective, Tony has been a player, scorekeeper, referee, coach and MC. A true fan of the game! In 2009, he coached women's basketball in Sweden for a season with the Umeå Comets ("Udominate"). He then returned home and worked with PeacePlayers International, which uses the game of basketball to bring young people together from divided communities. Tony has since joined Google and has worked in Dublin, Singapore, and now London. He is now working to create a new basketball league to provide a better basketball experience for ballers in central London and with the added goal of engaging young people in the sport.
