the first offical game took place on January 20, 1892. Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian minister on the faculty of a college for YMCA professionals in Springfield, Massachusetts, sought an indoor game of vigor and grace to keep young men occupied during the long New England winters.he wrote up some basic rules, nailed up a peach basket on the gym wall, and got his students to start playing his new game.
