Full Registration For NBA 3-ON-3 Philippines 2011 Presented By Sprite

Inaugural event draws maximum field

Registration for the first ever NBA 3-on-3 Philippines 2011 presented by Sprite has closed more than a week ahead of its sign-up deadline. Due to overwhelming public response, all slots for the inaugural event have been taken, setting up an exciting tournament with a full field.

The event, announced earlier this month, will be held at the SM Mall of Asia from July 1 – 3. In a span of two weeks, all the divisions (boys, girls and open) filled up with teams eager to compete for bragging rights and top honors. A highlight of the tournament includes a VIP and celebrity division featuring some local stars and sporting heroes that fans should come and check out.

But all basketball aficionados, mall goers and those who did not get to register for the 3-on-3 can still participate in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest and Energen Skills Challenge on July 2 and 3 and win cool prizes from the NBA! Registration will be on site.

There are exciting activities for the entire family. NBA Legend and four-time NBA Champion Horace Grant of the Chicago Bulls and the LA Lakers will interact with fans during the three-day event. There will also be an authentic NBA half-time show featuring performances by the New York Knicks City Dancers, NBA merchandise giveaways and live music to keep fans entertained. Entry to watch the tournament and soak in the festivities is free of charge.

For those keen to see more NBA events in the country, we encourage all Filipino basketball fans to visit the event website at http://www.nba.com/3on3/philippines/ and give us ideas on what other NBA activities you would like to see in the future. You might just see your favourite player or team make it to your city!

See you on July 1!
