Georgian National 3X3 Basketball Championship – GeoTour 2021 continues. The second qualifying round of 3X3 GeoTour 2021 was hosted by Tbilisi Olympic Palace. According to the schedule, the next qualifying rounds were planned in Batumi, Kutaisi, Telavi and Rustavi, but due to the Covid-pandemic they will be held in the capital.

Seven teams gathered on August 18 at the Olympic Palace. According to the Covid regulations, only fully-vaccinated basketball players were allowed to participate in the tournament. If not vaccinated, the participant had to submit a negative PCR test result taken in the last 72 hours.

There were 3 teams in one group, four in the other, and the best 2-2 went in the semifinals. Both matches in the semi-final turned out to be tense: Simonebi defeated STICHI 21:17, while Triplets defeated BIODRONE 17:15. In the final match, Simonebi gained a convincing victory – 21:13 and won the right to participate in the final tournament of GeoTour 2021.

The winning team received a prize of 300 GEL, which was awarded to the members of “Simonebi” – Levan Lolishvili, Nikoloz Lolishvili and Saba Siradze by the head of the 3×3 basketball department of the Georgian National Basketball Federation, Giga Gurgenidze. The best player of the tournament became the leader of Triplets, Luka Tsirekidze, who was awarded a special prize.
