Never played basketball? It is played between two teams of five, with the aim being to throw the ball in your opponent’s basket.
Dependent on the club and coach, taster sessions can start from as little as £4 for court hire. If you play for a club you will often have to pay ‘subs’ for a year that will cover the court, referee, and coaching costs. You may also have to buy kit.
Comfortable clothes and trainers you can run in. Clubs will usually provide basketballs.
England Basketball website and court finder (links below) are a great place to start
