“We are all thinking about Paris, but it’s a long way to go, first of all to the heart of the Lithuanian audience,” said J. Okunis, President of the Lithuanian 3×3 Basketball League. – We want to see a growing interest in this sport and a culture of support. I would like to enjoy that “Hoptrans” 3×3 Arena will be located this year in Kaunas, in the VMU Botanical Garden. I have no doubt that this place will become a centre of attraction in the summer”.
