Getting involved in basketball couldn't be simpler.

All you need is a couple of hoops, a ball and a bunch of mates - and off you go!

Most local authorities in Wales have invested in facilities - so there should be a court not far from you.

The Sports Council for Wales will be able to put you in touch with your local sports development officer who will be able to let you know about any organised events or activities.

Here are some useful contact details:
