The sport was introduced on December 21, 1891, with the hybrid elements of American and British football, as well as some field hockey elements. Game became an independent field and broke out in years to come, albeit faced anticipatory anxiety from few, initially.

Let us remind you that Naismith has mentioned basketball and its rules in The Triangle Newspaper. It is said that this game was initially played in a gym and then became a global sport. Basketball is now a sport played in more than 200 countries.

In 1890, Naismith was an instructor at Springfield, WIMC International Training College. He was assigned the task of planning an indoor game during this period, the reason being harsh winter weather for students playing outdoor sports.
