In multi-sport Asian tournaments (2009–2016)
One of the Philippines' initial participation in women's 3x3 was at the 2009 Asian Youth Games in Singapore where it managed to advance from the preliminary round only to lose to South Korea in the quarterfinal.
As the consequence of the Philippines hosting the 2018 edition of the FIBA 3x3 World Cup, the women's team was automatically qualified to play in the international tournament. The Philippines made their debut at the women's 3x3 debut after their men's team made their debut in the 2016 edition. It was the first time that a women's team will participate in a 3x3 tournament organized by FIBA.The national team was coached by Patrick Aquino and intended their stint to promote women's basketball in general in the country.
The lost their first match against the Netherlands, 11–21 and Germany, 10–12. Coach Aquino attributes the defeats to inexperience of the players in 3x3 basketball though he thought that team could potentially compete with European countries. They lost their remaining games to Spain, 17–21, and Hungary, 15–18 and finished at the bottom of Pool D.Their coach hoped that the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas could lobby for the women's 3x3 participation in the 2018 Asian Games after their FIBA 3x3 World Cup stint. However the Philippines did not enter any team in 3x3 basketball in the continental games.
The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP), the country's national association, plans to come up with a road map to help the Philippines qualify a team in 3x3 basketball in the 2020 Summer Olympics following the national team's stint in the 2018 FIBA 3x3 World Cup. The SBP plans to create a pool of players which will be dedicated to the 3x3 variant of basketball.
