Hi. I’m Juha-Pekka Sipponen, universally called J-P. I am a Web and sports enthusiast, and I live in Espoo, Finland.
Since September 2014, I have been working full-time for FIBA 3×3 basketball project
If you see some weird stuff on this web site, it is because I also use this site to test some of the cool stuff we deliver to the 3×3 basketball tournament organisers.
