Singapore recently played host to the highly anticipated FIBA 3x3 Asia Cup 2022  from 6 to 10 July. This event marked the return of the Asia Cup since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and was the second time a FIBA 3x3 official competition was organised in Singapore.

Featuring some of the region’s top 3x3 basketball teams, it was an intense and exciting five days as the teams battled it out for the title at the arena at Marina Bay Sands promenade.

Team Nila volunteers were there to support this event. Check out some of the moments captured by our Team Nila photographers!
