I've just joined a basketball club, the people of the club are very friendly and competitive. The first day of training we did it in the club's pavilion, it cost me a lot because I was not used to it, but the teammates encouraged me a lot and I got more courage. The first game I played in the team was great because we won.
We are very happy because after so many days of effort we managed to win and it was a success for us.
We also had very long matches where we had to train a lot and came home very tired, but deep down, everything was worth it.
In short, I highly recommend this sport because it gives you a lot of encouragement and you know a lot of people.
