The 3x3 streetball tournament of the same name was held in the Almaty Resort Sanatorium.
Street basketball competitions were held from August 16 to 18, 2019 with the support of the Almaty Resort Sanatorium and the Step Computer Academy.
For 3 days, 18 teams fought for the title of the best. Teams of different ages took part in the tournament: 15-16 years old, 17-18 years old, as well as 18+, among which were both girls and boys.
Marta Ahmetkarim has been professionally involved in basketball for over 10 years. During the vacation, the girl decided to take part in street competitions instead of rest. As a result, Marta's team took second place among girls in the 18+ age group.
“I think streetball is a little more difficult than traditional basketball. In streetball, the pace of the game is always very high,” admits Marta Ahmetkarim.
The director of the Step Computer Academy Aliya Aldabergenova told about the goals set by the organizers of this tournament.
