Qatar ranked 50 in FIBA but still, as compared to history, the country is working hard right now in order to achieve the true level of success.

Basic Rules: There are two teams present out there and each team has to score more goals than another.There's a special type of basket ball court and the basketball is elevated down through a hoop which is almost ten foot above the ground and also you can call this process a goal of basketball.There are many time limits present out there for ex: 20-minute halves, 10-minute halves. All these time limits depend on the type of people, the men often have the longer duration and the women have less than men and on the college level, there's very less time gap. This timing rule making it easier for them to play.

3.Power Boat Racing:

Powerboats are not an ordinary boat it can run faster than a real F1 racing car.This game is also considered as the third most popular game played in Qatar.This game held annually in Qatar since 2002.There is very well experienced sailors present out there for the boats because it's become harder for an ordinary sailor to win the championships. They often call these racings F1 Powerboat racing which sounds awesome doesn't it.This game is the only game that makes this country stand aside in terms of sports because these guys are superiors in this racing stuff. If I talk about rule there are not that many rules as I mentioned in the above two sports game but it's necessary for a sailor to have their license while sailing their boats on the river line.
