Basketball

From Wikipedia, a free encyclopedia written in simple English for easy reading.

Basketball is a very popular sport played with a round ball that bounces. It is played with two teams, with 5 players from each team on the court at one time. The court, where the game is played, is a rectangle shape, and at both endlines there is a goal called a "hoop" in the shape of a basket with the bottom cut out. Players try to score points by "shooting" (throwing) the ball at the hoop at either the end of the court. The players of the opposing team will try to block them from making a goal. Players must "dribble" (bounce) the ball, and not walk with it; they will throw the ball to others on their own team, but will try not to let the opposing team capture the ball.


Basketball is popular in the U.S.A. and other countries. It is played in the summer Olympic Games.
