Click Media Productions, with the help of their sponsors, put together another fantastic BallUP3on3 event. On a beautiful sunny Saturday on the 20th of August, basketball players and fans alike, took to the ZooLake in Johannesburg for a fun day of basketball.
The 3on3 competition format continues to grow across the world and we are happy to have had Adidas come on board as our main sponsor. They put forth a cash prize of R10 000 as a winning prize, and ballers came ready to battle it out. Score Energy Drink, BiogenSA and Pristine Group continue to grow with us; and we are honoured to have had the pleasure of their partnership on the day.
With 12 teams registering for the event, we had a great diversity of Professional, University and semi-professional players making up the battle ground. With our resident DJ, Sensei Juice, keeping the music flowing, the entertainment was non-stop. In the end, it was Crinkum Crankum from Tshwane who won and took the main prize home. We then saw some of our favourite celebrities take to the court in the Invitational Celebrity Game. Fans were happy to see guys such as Clint Brink, Dj Switch, PriddyUgly, Akin omotoso, Phila Madlingozi, Robby Collins and many more display their best skills.
It had been a while since fans of the game witnessed a cracker of a Slam Dunk contest, and with the line-up we had on the day; there was no question that we were set for fireworks. 6 dunkers; Christian Kabasele, Billy Kibasomba, Kola, Bryan Cele, Gucci Roddman and Jerry tlou all came out guns and hops blazing. The crowd was treated to some incredible dunks throughout and in the end, it was Kola who took the honors due to his consistency throughout the contest.
Click Media Productions would like to take this moment to thank all of our partners, and fans of the game for taking their time and making this event the success that it was. We look forward to taking this event to more cities around the country in the next coming months.
Keep the Game Growing, Keep it improving: We are coming for you!!!!
