Recap: Second Annual CNE x OBA 3×3 Basketball Tournament

Ontario Basketball and the Canadian National Exhibition hosted the second annual CNE x OBA 3×3 Tournament this past weekend. The tournament was part of the opening weekend of the CNE.

The CNE has added several sports tournaments to its lineup of end-of-summer entertainment in recent years, including baseball and basketball tournaments held during the CNE on the Exhibition Grounds.

Participants had the opportunity to play 3×3 basketball during the day and attend the CNE after their games wrapped up. There was also the unique opportunity to play basketball in the NBA Champion Toronto Raptors practice facility, which is not typically open to the public.

It was a great weekend of 3×3 basketball; Teams fought hard and demonstrated both skill and sportsmanship.

The Canadian National Exhibition runs until Monday September 2nd.
