Boulder
In geology , a BOULDER is a rock fragment with size greater than 25.6 centimetres (10.1 in) in diameter. Smaller pieces are called cobbles and pebbles . While a boulder may be small enough to move or roll manually, others are extremely massive. In common usage, a boulder is too large for a person to move. Smaller boulders are usually just called rocks or stones. The word _boulder_ is short for _boulder stone_, from Middle English _bulderston_ or Swedish _bullersten_. In places covered by ice sheets during Ice Ages , such as Scandinavia , northern North America , and Siberia , glacial erratics are common. Erratics are boulders picked up by ice sheets during their advance, and deposited when they melt. They are called "erratic" because they typically are of a different rock type than the bedrock on which they are deposited. One of them is used as the pedestal of the Bronze Horseman in Saint Petersburg , Russia

Seating Capacity
SEATING CAPACITY is the number of people who can be seated in a specific space, in terms of both the physical space available, and limitations set by law . Seating capacity can be used in the description of anything ranging from an automobile that seats two to a stadium that seats hundreds of thousands of people. The largest sporting venue in the world, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway , has a permanent seating capacity for more than 235,000 people and infield seating that raises capacity to an approximate 400,000.

Arena
An ARENA, also known as INDOOR STADIUM, is an enclosed area, often circular or oval-shaped, designed to showcase theater , musical performances , or sporting events . The word derives from Latin _harena_, a particularly fine/smooth sand used to absorb blood in ancient arenas such as the Colosseum in Rome . It is composed of a large open space surrounded on most or all sides by tiered seating for spectators. The key feature of an arena is that the event space is the lowest point, allowing for maximum visibility. Arenas are usually designed to accommodate a large number of spectators. The term _arena_ is sometimes used as a synonym for a very large venue such as Pasadena's Rose Bowl , but such a facility is typically called a _stadium _, especially if it does not have a roof

Basketball
BASKETBALL is a non-contact sport played on a rectangular court . While most often played as a team sport with five players on each side, three-on-three, two-on-two, and one-on-one competitions are also common. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.048 m) high that is mounted to a backboard at each end of the court. The game was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith , who would be the first basketball coach of the Kansas Jayhawks , one of the most successful programs in the game's history. A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket being defended by the opposition team during regular play. A field goal scores three points for the shooting team if the player shoots from behind the three-point line , and two points if shot from in front of the line

Olympic Games
since 1964. The complete rules are extensive. But simply, play proceeds as follows: a player on one of the teams begins a 'rally' by serving the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm), from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the net, and into the receiving team's court. The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. The team may touch the ball up to 3 times but individual players may not touch the ball twice consecutively
