There is a standard list of equipment for any basketball court. It includes backboards and their poles, baskets, basketballs, and additional technical devices, such as a timer, a scoreboard and horns. Backboards must be made of a transparent material, preferably - toughened safety glass, and have the same hardness as the 3 cm thick wooden panels.

Backboards may also be made of other materials, but must fulfil the above requirements, and to be painted white. Dimensions of the backboard must be 1.80m across and 1.05 m (2 cm +) in height. The lower edge of the backboard should be located at a height of 2.90m from the surface of the court.

Basket hoops should be made of sturdy steel, have the minimum internal diameter of 45 cm and a maximum internal diameter of 45.7 cm and be painted orange. The metal rim must have a minimum diameter of 16 mm and maximum 20 mm, also there should be net anchorages at the lower part of the rim to prevent finger injuries.

A net should be made of white cord, attached to the rim and designed in a way to hold a ball for a moment as it passes through the basket. A net length should be at least 40 cm and not more than 45 cm.

The basketball must be spherical and be painted orange. The ball must have a traditional pattern of eight panels, separated by seams. The outer surface of the basketball must be made from leather, rubber or synthetic material.

The game clock is needed to indicate the remaining time in minutes and seconds, and should be located so that everyone involved in the game could see it clearly. A stopwatch is used to note the time requested for the breaks. It should also be a clearly visible to everyone involved in the game, including the spectators, scoreboard.

“The basketball court is the playing surface, consisting of a rectangular floor with tiles at either end.
Basketball courts come in different shapes and sizes and colors. In the NBA, the court is 94 feet by 50 ft (28.65m by 15.24m). Under International Basketball Federation (FIBA) rules, the court is minutely smaller, measuring exactly 28 m by 15 m (91'10.4" by 49'2.6"). A high school court is slightly smaller, at 84' by 50' and some elementary schools have courts measuring 74' x 42'. In amateur basketball, court sizes vary widely. The baskets are always 10' (3.05m) above the floor (except possibly in youth competition). Basketball courts have a three-point arc at both baskets. A basket made from behind this arc is worth three points; a basket made from within this line, or with a player's foot touching the line is worth two points. The free-throw line, where one stands while taking a foul shot, is located within the three-point arc.” [Wikipedia]
