PBA relaunches women’s 3×3 league

After a seven-year absence, the PBA’s 3×3 tournament for women is set to relaunch.

Six teams, including two Gilas squads, are participating in the WPBA 3×3 Invitational, scheduled to kick off on Jan. 22.

The single-round eliminations will be played during the game days of the men’s PBA 3×3 Season 3 Third Conference, held every Monday and Tuesday.

“We will include the women’s eliminations in the remaining legs of the PBA 3×3 Season 3 Third Conference,” said PBA deputy commissioner Eric Castro.

Castro mentioned that the top four teams at the end of the 15-game eliminations will advance to the crossover knockout semifinals. The finalists will dispute the championship via a winner-take-all format.

Completing the six-team field are Uratex Dream, Angelis Resort, Philippine Navy, and Philippine Air Force.

The league initially launched the women’s half-court game in 2016 during the tenure of then-commissioner Chito Narvasa, and it lasted for one season.

At that time, all 12 member ball clubs were represented. Blackwater won the Philippine Cup, NLEX emerged as the champion in the Commissioner’s Cup, and GlobalPort topped the Governors’ Cup.
