Basketball

Basketball is a team sport with two teamsĀ of five players on either side. Each team attempts to score points by throwing a ball through the top of a basketball hoop, commonly refered to as "shooting". The game itself is one of the most popular and widely viewed sports throughout the world.

A regulation basketball hoop consists of a 18" rim which is mounted 10feet and mounted to a backboard. These are regulation sizes and smaller equipment is available for younger players. A team can score a goal by shooting the ball through the hoop during regular play. A goal scores two points for the shooting team if a player is touching or closer to the hoop than the three point line. 3 points are awarded if the player is outside the three point line, as the name suggests. The team with the most points at the end wins. The ball itself travels around the court either by bouncing it while walking or running (dribbling) or passing to a team-mate. It is a violation to walk while holding the ball (travelling).

Although the competitive side of the sport is carefuly regulated there has been a number of variations of the sport to allow more casual play. The competitive side of the game is played indoors on precisely marked courts, however the casual side of the game are often played outdoors in both city and rural areas.
