It was Dr. James Naismith invented the game of Basketball in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts ... but at the time he used a soccer ball. - U.S. patent #1,718,305 was granted to G.L. Pierce on June 25, 1929 for the "basketball" used in the game. Spaulding was one of the first companies that manufactured basketballs.Answerthis has nothing to do with who invented the ball used for baketball it only answers who invented basketball not who invented the ball used for basketball
Dr. James Naismith is known world-wide as the inventor of basketball. He was born in 1861 in Ramsay township, near Almonte, Ontario, Canada. The concept of basketball was born from Naismith's school days in the area where he played a simple child's game known as duck-on-a-rock outside his one-room schoolhouse. The game involved attempting to knock a "duck" off the top of a large rock by tossing another rock at it. Naismith went on to attend McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

When basketball was invented, the ball used was a soccer ball.
it was a big heavy ball
Because they didnt have a basketball designed yet so they used a soccer ball.
When Dr. Naismith invented basketball he didn't have a 'basketball' to use. So, he looked around his gymnasium and decided that a soccer ball was the right size and he used that.
When the game was first invented they used baskets to throw the ball into. They had to climb ladders to retrieve the ball as well. I believe it was invented at a ymca, but not sure on that.
The equipment that was used in 1892 for basketball was mainly a ball. The ball used was a soccer ball as the basket ball had not been created.
the soccer ball was never used
the ball that was first used in basketball was a dodgeball
Speed in basketball is used for the throwing of the ball and the speed of the player running or dribbling with the ball. :)
when James Naismith was told to invent a sport, he invented basketball. he wore regular shoes and threw a volley ball into a basket nailed to the wall. then someone went to the balcony and used a stick to get it out
