Basketball

Basketball is, today, one of the most popular sports in the world. It is one of the most watched sports internationally but is still played mostly in America, though many co-educational schools in England offer the sport as a gender neutral alternative to netball, allowing the girls and boys to play mixed basketball. Current ruling states that a field goal (when the ball is shot through the hoop in regular play) scores 2 points for the team if within the three-point line and 3 points if outside it. A player may move around the court with the ball while either walking or running as long as he or she is dribbling (bouncing) the ball. Players may not move if they are not dribbling the ball. Basketball is suited to those who have excellent hand-eye coordination, can jump high and possess good ball skills, though you should not be put off if you do not boast all of these strengths as basketball focuses on developing these strengths too. Beyond the hoop, the basketball and a good pair of trainers there is not too much specific kit for basketball but it doesn’t always come cheap. With a Twenga search you can find the best deals online and save money buying quality sports goods.
