The score in a sport is the quantitative measure of the performance of competitors. Typically, events during a competition increase or decrease a competitor’s score, and the highest-scoring competitor is deemed to be the winner of that particular event. However, some sports do not involve a scoring system, such as golf or tennis.
In basket and net sports, the objective is to place a ball into a net or a goal. The most common examples of these types of sports are basketball and soccer. The goal of a field player in soccer is to kick the ball into their team’s own goal zone, while the goal in basketball is to put the ball through a basketball hoop on a stand with a backboard.
