The First ever edition of BallUp3on3 was hosted at Zoolake on the 20th of February 2016. Click Media founder Christian Chris Kazadi wanted to introduce Click Media to the Market and found that there are few platforms to do so that were better than a Basketball event, which spoke directly to their target markets both on a Product & Consumer point of view. Having been involved in basketball at different levels, the experience with the game and audience certainly came in handy.
The poster featured a picture of former Duzi Royals and SA National Player Tsakani Ngobeni, easily 1 of the very best players to ever come out of South Africa. The Event was hosted by MC and TV Personality Jean Kitenge, and consisted of 16 Male and 8 Female Basketball teams from all over SA. The Event was sponsored by Score Energy Drink, Biogen and VIVA GYM and covered by Supersport TV. Brian Cele Won the 1st ever BallUp3on3 Slam Dunk Contest and Krinkim Crumkum won the Male Tournament and V&J won the Ladies tournament.
