Basketball is a fun, fast and stamina-building sport with players burning up to 600 calories an hour! It is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is played with a ball and a hoop. Players score points by shooting the ball through the hoop. It is a mixture of dribbling, passing and shooting which helps improve balance and co-ordination.
Basketball can be played by people of any age, size or ability and with thousands of outdoor courts across the country – where you can play for free – there's plenty of places to practice if you don't fancy competing with a team.
With clubs across the country, it's a great way to meet new people and develop teamwork and communication skills and many clubs offer a variety of social events away from the court.
