3 by 3 (3x3) basketball will be the format played at the Games with confirmed participation from 11 countries.
It is a big task on hand for the team because it's a shorter version of the game, being three on three.
For the women’s, it will be their first time to take part in 3 by 3 basketball and the second time for the men.
The team has done their medical checks and are looking set for the challenge.
The men’s squad consists of Apia Muri, Moses Lune and Liam Wright.
The women’s team is Betty Angula, Rosa Kairi, Normalisa Dobunaba and Marca Muri.
PNG’s basketball teams will leave for Vanuatu on December 7.
