Writtle University College... The Home of 3x3 in Essex

Over the summer, Writtle University College completed the development of 10 3x3 courts, with 4 dedicated courts in the heart of campus and 6 (along with a bespoke show court) on our sport grounds. These fantastic facilities launched in July 2021 and have continued to be a huge asset to Writtle and the surrounding areas.

Over the summer, Writtle hosted our first 3x3 School’s Tournament, which saw over 40, year 10-11 students, battling it out on the new courts! Writtle looks to host annual summer series to open up opportunities to schools and school pupils to take part in 3x3 tournaments on dedicated, bespoke courts, along with looking to work with BUCS and AoC to provide tournaments at university and college level.

Over the coming months, WUC will be working on bespoke training camp packages and looking to work with regional, national and international teams to develop athlete performance, grow the sport at grass roots level and provide opportunities for all.

WUC is supporting the community by offering free open sessions on Friday evenings 4pm-9pm and supporting Central Basketball Group with their community delivery by providing courts on Thursday and Sunday evenings. The courts have seen over 60 people at a time during the community sessions, with some travelling in from Romford, Colchester and London, and the team that put this project together couldn’t be prouder!

Keep your eyes peeled for more 3x3 and sport news from WUC, including a Commonwealth themed sport festival next summer!
