In Greece the National sport is basketball. Basketball is a team sport. It is played by two teams
of five players. Each team tries to win the other team by scoring more points than the other team.
The game basketball is played in an indoor court. The equipment that is used, are two baskets
and the basketball. Also the players wear specific basketball trainers and their teams clothes.
Basketball is very popular in Greece and it has lots of fans. The national team of
Greece had many successes in the past. Especially in the years 1987 and 2005 our national team won
the gold cup, in the European basketball Competition. People have a lot of fun by
watching the game and they support and celebrate their team’s victories. My favourite team which
I enjoy watching with my father is Olympiacos. Ofcourse I also love watching our national team!!
