Default New guy....need a little help.

Folks,
I have P-100........and I'm having issues shooting pictures of my boys basketball games. As you guessed blurry, blurry, blurry...........
I'm no pro when it comes to taking pictures (moving ones at least), can someone help me out.
Most if not all my pictures are taken in a gym, so the lighting in most is really bad......really bad!

Thanks!

Sounds like subject motion blur due to a shutter speed that's too slow. At the expense of image quality you could try Shutter priority mode and set the ISO to 3200 and see what the fastest shutter speed you can get in the gym. Stop action for sports is in the 1/1000 second range but you may have to settle for 1/500 or 1/250 and time your shots for peak action, the player at the top of the jump for example.
