Ranking and Ballerlevel

The 3x3 Ranking and Ballerlevels are essential ingredients of 3x3 basketball, an individual sport played in a team. Every player registered with has his own Ranking and Ballerlevel, which evolves according to results at FIBA endorsed tournaments and pick-up games.

They allow players to compare their skills with friends, local players and pros from all over the globe and when combined with that of team-mates, give provide the chances of success against that of other teams.

A player's Ranking is their individual position in among all registered players based on points won at FIBA endorsed tournaments and pick-up games.

Two criteria are taken into account:
1. Each player's best six FIBA endorsed tournament results played over the last 12 months. The number of points earned at a tournament depend the final position/standing and the tournament level.
2. Each player's best 10 pick-up results on any given day, with the best 200 played over the previous 12 months. Pick-up games are worth fewer points than FIBA endorsed tournament games.


The Ballerlevel is a way to evaluate the skill level of players, from beginner to pro, based on their win-loss record (including pick-up games). A player goes up in Ballerlevel if they are consistently beating others with the same or higher Ballerlevels. On the other hand, if they are losing against players with the same rating or lower, they go down in level(s). The Ballerlevel reflects each player's relative playing record (i.e. win-loss ratio taking into account each respective opponent's Ballerlevel).

Tournament results are entered by the organiser within one week of the event ending; pick-up results need to submitted within two days via the 3x3planet App to be taken into account.
