Can I volunteer or coach?
Absolutely, we welcome anyone who wants to help out. Please get in touch with us via email@example.com so we can have a discussion about what you want to help with and so we can find out a little more about you.
What is a DBS check and do I need one?
If you are volunteering with anyone under the age of 18 - for example at a #Ball4Life Clinic - then you will need a valid Disclosure and Barring Service check. A valid DBS is a personal history check that ensures you're ok to help us out (it's a standard requirement for teachers or carers for example).
How can I or my company partner with the GG3x3?
We do great work because of the generosity of individuals and businesses. If you want to support us then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What roles are there if I want to volunteer?
There are loads of roles at a tournament, including scoring, setting-up, registration and helping to raise money!
How fun is it to volunteer?
One word. AMAZING. Everyone has the best fun, meets new people and feels incredible at the end of a day volunteering as part of the GG3x3 team. Get in touch by emailing us at email@example.com to find out how you can be a part of the GG3x3.
What is 3x3 basketball?
3x3 basketball is a new, fun, even faster-paced version of 5v5 basketball. Have you check out our "Learn about 3x3 basketball" page yet? Click here.
Why is 3x3 basketball so good?
3x3 basketball is fast and fun. It gives you the opportunity to have more touches on the ball (with less players on the court) and will test your shooting, dribbling and passing.
Why are you so keen for everyone to play 3x3 basketball in the UK?
As well as the answers in the "Why is 3x3 basketball so good?" question, 3x3 basketball will be the driving force behind everyone playing the game and enjoying all its benefits from now and for years to come. It will help players on the court improve and may even give us better chances at playing and winning in major tournaments (like the Olympics for example!).
