Equipment needed:
You will need a basketball and comfortable sportshoes.

The type of suitable clothing:
Usually loose clothes to play to wear comfortably and let your perspiration evaporate easily.

The rules of the sport:
Basketball is a sport in which two teams of five active players each try to score points against one another by throwing a ball through a 10 foot high hoop (the basket) under organized rules.

How to score for the sport:
Points are scored by passing the ball through the basket from the above;theteam with more points at the end of the game wins. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing it (dribbling) or passing it between teammates. Disruptive physical contact (foul) is not permitted and there are restrictions on how the ball can be handled (violations).

The skills needed:Through time, basketball has developed to involve common techniques of shooting, passing and dribbling, as well as players' positions, and offensive and defensive structures.

History of the sport:
In early December 1891, Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian physical education student and instructor at YMCA Training School[1] (today, Springfield College) in Springfield, Massachusetts, USA, sought a vigorous indoor game to keep his students occupied and at proper levels of fitness during the long New England winters. After rejecting other ideas as either too rough or poorly suited to walled-in gymnasiums, he wrote the basic rules and nailed a peach basket onto a 10-foot (3.05 m) elevated track. In contrast with modern basketball nets, this peach basket retained its bottom, so balls scored into the basket had to be poked out with a long dowel each time. A soccer ball was used to shoot goals. Whenever a person got it in the basket, they would give their team a point. Whoever got the most points, they would win the game.[2]
