Q. What are the rules governing Drop in Basketball?

The rules governing drop in basketball are as follows:

Two Teams of Five:
The system governing informal full court basketball play begins automatically when the basketball court(s) becomes occupied by two teams of five participants playing full court basketball and there is a team of five participants present and ready for play (gym shoes) who have requested the next game.

First Come, First Served:
The first five waiting at the court will automatically have the next game. If less than five are waiting to play, members from the losing team or from another court's losing team or those waiting, may play. When the next game system is operative and a participating team's number of players drops below five, the remaining members may continue to play to the end of the 11-basket game with or without adding members to their team.
