Basketball is a limited-contact sport played on a rectangular court. While most often played as a team sport with five players on each side, three-on-three, two-on-two, and one-on-one competitions are also common. The objective is to shoot a basketball (approximately 9.4 in in diameter) through a hoop 18 in in diameter and high that is mounted to a backboard at each end of the court. The game was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith.
