Basketball Ireland in association with Galway 2020 presents

Hoops

LOCATION The Prom, Salthill

Hoops sees Basketball Ireland and Hula Hoops set up a pop-up basketball court on Galway’s iconic ‘Prom’ in Salthill for a weekend of basketball, music and dance.

Presenting the 3×3 basketball format which continues to grow in popularity around the world, Hoops offers a jam-packed programme of sport and culture. In addition to the 3×3 national basketball competition itself, there will also be slam dunk competitions, wheelchair basketball games, celebrity shootouts and other activities.

The Hoops project also showcases those elements of urban culture that go hand-in-hand with street basketball and so, each day when the games finish, the court gets taken over by DJs, musicians and dancers bringing a colourful mix of sights, sounds and movement.

Following guidance issued by the Government in relation to measures to contain Covid-19 it is with regret that Galway 2020 has made the decision to cancel this event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
