Basketball

Basketball is a great way to enjoy some physical activity in a fun setting that allows you to be competitive, but also allows you to have a lot of fun while doing it.

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world and one of the most widely viewed. 

It is a team sport that involves two teams of five active players each trying to score points against one another by throwing a ball through a 300cm (10 foot) high hoop (the ‘basket’) under organised rules. It is played on both indoor and outdoor courts.

Basketball is a fast moving game that involves a lot of variety, including shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, actif basketballdefence and much more.

Basketball involves a lot of starting and stopping. While not renowned as an aerobic sport, it is still a great workout that can help you; burn calories (an hour of basketball can burn 630–750 calories); build endurance; improve balance and coordination; develop concentration and self-discipline; build up muscle.

As well as being a great way to stay fit, basketball can also; help you to make new friends and see them regularly; teach you about being a good team player; be played by people of all ages and all abilities; be played all year round because it’s usually an indoor sport; be a fun game that kids of all levels and ages can enjoy; be practised alone – all you need is a net and a hoop (and you can find a hoop in most local parks and school grounds); be played and enjoyed with as few as two people (although official games require 10 players).
