Basketball is one of the foremost popular sports within the planet. It is played with a ball and a hoop. 🏀Basketball was invented in 1891 by "Jim Naismith". He invented the sport for indoors play at the (YMCA) during the "Massachusetts winter". The first game was played with a ball and two peach baskets for goals.
Players score points by "shooting the ball through the ring" . This game played between two teams of 5 players each on an oblong court, usually indoors. Each team tries to achieve by tossing the ball through the opponent's goal, an elevated horizontal hoop and net called a basket.
A basket is found at each end of the court. This consists of a pole with an orange-painted iron ring of 45 to 50 centimeters in diameter and bottomless net of white cord on a backboard which is ten feet above court level.
Basketball features in no time and exciting pace of play. Also, each player on the court gets to play both offense and defense and therefore the roles of every player are only loosely defined. The basket is formed from the backboard, rim, and net. The rim is eighteen inches in diameter.
A regulation backboard is "72 inches"wide by" 48 inches tall",,although you'll find backboards can vary in size. Basketball courts vary in size counting on the gym and therefore the level of play. However, some features remain an equivalent . the dimensions and height of the basket, the space from the foul shot line, etc. I enjoyed basketball in my childhood when I was in the school 🏫 with my friends on every saturday after recess. That time is so memorable for me. 😉
Basketball is my favourite sport!😉
