Women's Basketball started in 1892, one year after the invention of the game. Senda Berenson, a physical education teacher at Smith College, amended some of the rules for women. The first game using her rules was in 1893 when a team of her freshman students played a team of her sophomore students.

Why is women's basketball less popular than men's basketball?

Mens basketball is more poular because they have more exciting things. Like dunking and fights and people getting tachnicals. Womens basketball has none of that. IN womens basketball only one person dunks and she doesn't do it all the time. that's why womens basketball is less popular than mens.Answeri think men's basketball is more popular because their sport has been around longer than women's. men's basketball was invented first Women started playing basketball one year after basketball was invented. So the above answer really has no meaning in the equation.AnswerPeople want to see the best athletes play and the bottom line is that men who are good enough to compete in the NBA or NCAA are better than their female counterparts. Personally, I think Women's college basketball can be interesting when you have top teams like Tennessee and UCONN squaring off, but it's a fact that male basketball players are better. Case in point: A few years ago I read a Sports Illustrated article about how Pat Summit's Tennessee Volunteers play against a practice squad of male students. Obviously, these guys are talented, but they aren't good enough to make the men's team and yet they're good enough to beat some of the best women.

Does playing basketball increase height?

I think that playing sports/exercising will increase your height, or growth. Playing basketball requires you to run around, or even jump to score a basket which is a positive thing that may help you grow. I mean it doesn't help you increase your height from 5 ft tall to 6, but it does help you little by little.
