[Basseterre, St. Kitts and Nevis] — The St. Kitts Nevis Amateur Basketball Association (SKNABA) is delighted to announce a groundbreaking achievement in the history of basketball in St. Kitts and Nevis. After successfully hosting a series of FIBA 3×3 style exhibition tournaments at Basketball City throughout the month of September, our national federation is now eligible to participate with its 3×3 national teams in any FIBA 3×3 Official National Team Competitions in 2024.
