Transcript of basketball goal history

Did you know that the first known basketball hoop was invented in 1891 and consisted of a peach basket nailed to an elevated track? This future mega sport was the creation of a Canadian YMCA instructor who devised an indoor game his students could enjoy during the long winter months. The first official basketball game was played in 1892 and, since that time, this sport has evolved and is enjoyed around the globe, bringing together both families and communities "Basketball Hoop History - BasketballGoals.com."

Basketball Hoop History
From Peach Crate to Basketball Hoop

The basketball hoop emerged from the simple idea that tossing a ball into a ring and scoring points could provide hours of fun on a cold wintry day. Basketball was basically invented to keep students active during long chilly months. The first hoop consisted of a peach crate attached to a ten-foot-high railing and players aimed a ball into it. There was no "basket ball" yet, per se.

. The basketball hoop has evolved but the concept remains simple. Today there are many kinds of hoops to choose from, depending on the kind of basketball game you want to play. Aside from the standard indoor gymnasium hoops, there are outdoor in-ground hoops, and indoor/outdoor portable hoops. There is also the wall-mounted hoop, and the folding storable system.

The peach basket hoop was replaced by a metal rim and netting about a decade after the sport was invented. The netting was closed at the bottom, so much like the peach basket, players had to climb up and retrieve the ball from the net each time someone scored. However, by 1906, the bottom of the net was cut out to allow the ball to fall through the hoop. The first modern basketballs were made from pieces of leather stitched together with a rubber bladder inside.

been nailed to the wall of the gym (of dimensions unknown), and the players would bounce a soccer
ball. There were a few problems with the literal basket hoop design, though; the location where the
first basket was fixed to the wall allowed spectators to interfere with games, which happened with
a fair amount of frequency. In addition to audience interference, the basket also had the problem in
that being a fully intact literal basket the ball would not fall through but simply stay in the basketball
hoop in the event of a successful goal shot – the player who shot the ball would then have to climb up
and retrieve it from the basket before play could resume, resulting the momentum of the game being
disrupted. basketball hoop history by jordaan metts
