Basketball is more than a sport for tall people. It requires endurance and strength. Playing a basketball game is a fantastic workout for your entire body because the constant movement keeps your heart rate elevated, keeps your arms and legs working, and improves your hand-eye coordination. Most gyms have a basketball court that is open for members to play a game, shoot some hoops during lunch, or even get involved in leagues. Major cities also have basketball courts in their parks where you can usually play for free, though you may have to reserve the court if you want to have your own game there.
- From the occasional pick-up game to a formal game, basketball provides a hard workout with a lot of fun and social interaction between teammates and opponents.
