What’s it all about?

A non-contact sport played on a rectangular court. Opposing teams of five players attempt to score points by shooting a ball into a hoop at the end of the court they are attacking. Basketball England aims to create a sport that’s valued in every community and accessible in every school, college and university, and inspires the wider population to be engaged in the game.
