Basketball

Basketball is a team sport where two teams of five each try to score by shooting a ball through a ring on the opponent’s side of the court. There will be two events which are the men’s team and the women’s team events. There will be one referee and 2 umpires assisted by four table officials and one technical commissioner. A goal is credited to the team attacking the opponent’s basket into which the ball has entered. It will be 1, 2 or 3 points. The game starts by a jump ball where an official tosses the ball between 2 opponents in the centre circle of the court. One game consists of four quarters with each lasting for 10 minutes.
