WHY SHOULD YOU PLAY?

Women's Health Australia - - BEST BODY -

Plenty of rea­sons! “Basketball is a game that suits all styles – small and quick or big and slow. It’s non-con­tact but com­pet­i­tive and lots of fun,” says Un­der­wood. Plus it’s great for your fit­ness, says Ade­laide Lightning player Abby Bishop (right). “It works a lot of mus­cles, both up­per and lower body.” She reck­ons ev­ery­one should dunk their toe in at least once. “If you don’t like it that’s fine, but just give it a try. If you love it or not, you’re a win­ner ei­ther way, be­cause you’ll come out of it with new friends and skills. Con­tact your local basketball or­gan­i­sa­tion to find a team that suits your age and skill level.”
