The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.048 m) high mounted to a backboard at each end. Basketball is one of the world’s most popular and widely viewed sports.The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the most popular and widely considered to be the highest level of professional basketball in the world and NBA players are the world’s best paid sportsmen, by average annual salary per player.

Today we will provide you Important basic ideas about Strategy 1- Learning the Rules
Get a ball and a hoop
All you need to play basketball is a ball of the appropriate size and a net that it fits through, set at a challenging-enough height. The specific requirements for regulation basketball are included below, but the history of basketball is the history of making do with what you have. The first basketball hoop was a peach crate nailed to a railing. Use empty boxes, soccer balls, or whatever is available if you don’t have access to a hoop.
- Basketballs are typically available in four sizes: youth, intermediate, and adult sizes for people of varying sexes. Made of rubber materials and synthetic leather, basketballs are widely available at sporting goods stores. Find a ball that you can comfortably shoot without wobbling your wrist. At most gyms, youth centers, and other athletic places, you can borrow basketballs to practice.
- Regulation hoops are ten feet high and 18 inches (45.7 cm) in diameter, typically backed with a plexiglass board off which players may bounce shots. While full-court basketball is played with two hoops, one at each end of a 94-foot long court, it’s only necessary to have one hoop to play a half-court pick-up game, or to shoot around with friends.
Break into two teams
For a full-court game, basketball is played by two teams of five players each. While it’s also common to play half-court ball with teams of three, however many people you’ve got playing, it’s important to have an even number of players on each team. Alternate basketball games for uneven numbers are included in the last section.
Score points by shooting the ball through the hoop
In basketball, an offensive player can score between one and three points with a shot, depending on where the shot is taken on the floor.
- Extending in a half-circle, about 20 feet (6.1 m) from the hoop on most courts, should be the “three-point line,” beyond which shots are worth an extra point. Inside that arc, all shots are worth two points.
- Foul shots are worth one point each and are taken from the free-throw line, which is 15 feet (4.6 m) from the hoop. Players will be awarded between one and three free throws if they are fouled during a shooting attempt, or fouled after the other team has accumulated too many fouls.
Move the ball by dribbling or passing
When you have the ball, you have to either be stationary, with one foot planted on the floor to pivot from, or you have to be dribbling the ball, bouncing it up and down on the floor. When you’re planted, you can pivot around on one foot, but that foot has to remain planted if you’re not dribbling. You can still jump to shoot or pass, but when you come back down you need to have gotten rid of the ball.
- When you start dribbling, you must dribble constantly as you move, until you pass, shoot, or stop dribbling to plant on your pivot foot. If you stop dribbling, you cannot re-start dribbling, which is a foul called a “double-dribble.” It’s also important to avoid “over/under” dribbles, in which you pick up the ball from underneath and turn it over to dribble it down. Learn to dribble properly in the following section.
- If you’re driving in to shoot, you can pick up the ball and take two steps without dribbling before you shoot or pass. More than two steps will result in a traveling violation. If you’ve been dribbling and you stop, you cannot take two steps.
