Basketball

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world. Invented by Canadian-born physician and sports coach, Dr. James Naismith in 1891, the game is played by two teams of five on a rectangular indoor court. There is a hoop at either end of the court - a basket mounted onto a backboard 10 ft or just over 3 m above the ground. The objective is to shoot a round ball into the hoop and to stop the other team from shooting the ball into the other hoop.
