Basketball originated in the USA and is now loved the world over. This team game was originally played as an alternative to athletics and American football.
This sport demands athletic skills such as agility and dexterity, as well as strategic understanding, speed of movement and quick decision-making. Trust, team spirit and mutual respect are essential for success.
