2. DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPORTS
Canadian-American gym teacher James Naismith created and brought this sport to Springfield, Massachusetts in the United States in 1891. Since then, basketball has evolved to become one of the world's most popular and widely viewed sports.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Two teams, commonly consisting of five players each, face one another on a rectangular court. Their primary objective is to shoot a basketball through their defender's hoop while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop.

While soccer is seen as mainly as a Western sport, records have traced its history to at least 2,000 years in ancient China. While Greece, Rome, and parts of Central America have claimed to have started the sport, it was England that fashioned soccer (or ‘football’, as called by many people around the world) into the game we know today. It is played by approximately 250 million players in over 200 countries, making it one of the world's most popular sports.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
The game is played on a rectangular field called a pitch, with a goal post at each end. Two teams of 11 players each aim to outscore each other by kicking a ball (no hands and arms allowed!) beyond the goal line into the opposing goal post. The team with the higher number of goals wins the game.

Abner Doubleday first brought baseball to Cooperstown, New York, during the summer of 1839. He then went on to become a Civil War hero, while baseball became America's beloved national pastime.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Baseball is a sport played on a field by two teams against each other. In baseball, a player on one team throws a small round ball at a player on the other team, who tries to hit it with a bat. Then the player who hits the ball has to run around the field. Players get points by running around in a full circle past three points on the ground called bases, then back to where they started, which is called the home plate.
They have to do this without getting caught by the players on the other team.
BENEFITS OF PLAYING BASEBALL
- Provides lots of Vitamin D
- Builds strength (especially for the arms and legs)
- Good for the mind
- Supports and strengthens attention span
- Builds a sense of community
- Improves lung capacity
- Fun to play
Modern tennis first started out as ‘lawn tennis’ or ‘real tennis’ in Birmingham, England during the late 19th century; it was mostly referred to as ‘real tennis’ though. It was also closely related to other field or lawn games such as croquet and bowls.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Tennis today is played on a rectangular court with a net running across the centre. The aim is to hit the ball with a racket over the net, landing it within the margins of the court in a way that prevents your opponent from returning it. You win a point every time your opponent is unable to return the ball within the court.
BENEFITS OF PLAYING TENNIS
- Lowers rest heart rate and blood pressure

- Suitable for all ages
- Improves metabolic function

Hockey has a long and interesting history that is still being studied today. Historial records have pointed to a primitive form of hockey being played in different countries in the ancient world before being modernised by England in the 18th century. It was a vital factor in the development of public schools, leading to the formation of the first Hockey Association in the UK in 1876. The original association went defunct after six years before being revived in 1886.
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
Two teams play against each other by attempting to move a ball or a puck with their hockey sticks into the opponent's goal post. There are many types of hockey such as bandy, field hockey, ice hockey, and rink hockey.
