Phl 3x3 league to con­vert to full ‘bub­ble’ setup

The Freeman - - Sports - —

Chooks-to-Go Pilip­inas 3x3 will be shift­ing to a full bub­ble setup af­ter the In­ter-Agency Task Force de­nied their ini­tial re­turn plan.

The coun­try’s first 3x3 bas­ket­ball pro league was set to em­ploy a “semi-bub­ble” ar­range­ment but has been forced to ad­just af­ter the Depart­ment of Health said it will only al­low tour­na­ments held in a full “bub­ble”.

League pres­i­dent Ron­ald Mas­cari­nas did not bat an eye at the set­back, al­ready call­ing for an emer­gency meet­ing to plan for the full “bub­ble”.

“We are com­mit­ting to do­ing a full bub­ble with each con­fer­ence tak­ing place in­side In­spire Acad­emy for 15 days,” said Mas­cari­nas.

In­spire Acad­emy is a sports fa­cil­ity lo­cated in Calamba, La­guna.

The IATF’s ini­tial de­nial, how­ever, may put the league’s planned Oc­to­ber 2 start date moved. But Mas­cari­nas said they will try their hard­est to still meet the planned re­sump­tion and get clear­ance from rel­e­vant agen­cies.

Like most leagues plan­ning to restart their sea­son, the 3x3 league has been im­ple­ment­ing strict test­ing pro­to­cols for its play­ers, staff and of­fi­cials.
