In Taiwan, basketball is the most popular sport and a required class for every students.

One of the reason that basketball is prevailing here is that playing basketball doesn't require lots of money and expensive kits.

Also, the baseball court is also easy to maintained in terms of money.

Baseball fields, tennis courts, football fields and soccer fields are far and few between here, but basketball courts are almost fixtures in every park and school.

However, it is ironical that Taiwanese basketball ability is very weak despite the fact that we have a semi-professional basketball league.

Yesterday, our national baseball team lost to that of Japan by a large margin - 40 points.
