Most Filipinos have their own personal preferences when it comes to sports.

Basketball is one such game that all sports enthusiasts have witnessed and enjoyed at some point in their life.

Basketball is a game which is played on the rectangular floor with two hoops on both the ends. These hoops can be bought online with or without stands for a professional ground or even an amateur one at the backyard of homes, rooms, etc, It is also known as a backboard which is the vertical board raised at a height and it holds the net suspended from the hoop. Low-budget hoops will have fabric nets which are more susceptible to wear and tear. The hoops can also be found with nets made of steel which ensure longevity.
Some people assume that their everyday sneakers shoes double up as basketball shoes. However, that is not the case at all. Basketball shoes come in 3 basic different kinds: low, mids, tops. These mean the height of the shoes. If they are low-top-, mid-top-, or high-top shoes. The kind of shoes you buy also depends on what kind of game you play. This simply means whether you are a speedster, an all-around player, or a power player. The shoes are comfortable, fitted to your foot size, and can bear the wear and damage of the game. The outsole and the cushioning of the shoes are two more important considerations to keep in mind before you make your purchase.
There will be no basketball game without a (good) basketball. However, not every player is adept at buying the best ball for the game. It is very important to ensure its quality, its longevity, and its material before you make an investment. Basketballs come in 3 different varieties: leather, synthetic composite, and rubber, in order of the level at which play. The rubber ones are great for initial practice or a summer hobby. They come in different materials and have fair quality depending on their price. As for the synthetic composite balls, they give the feel of leather balls without punching the hole in your wallet. This is great for players practicing for tournaments.
