Basketball at the 1952 Summer Olympics was the third appearance of the sport. 23 nations entered the competition.

The top six teams at the 1948 Summer Olympics qualified automatically, as did the 1950 World Champion (Argentinamarker), the top two at the 1951 European championships (USSRmarker and Czechoslovakiamarker), and the host country (Finlandmarker). Thirteen other nations competed in a preliminary round to determine the last six places in the sixteen-team Olympic tournament.

The matches were played in two different arenas: the eliminating matches and the opening round of the tournament in the Tennis Palacemarker in the heart of the city, where two courts had been available for practice, and the semi-finals and finals in Messuhalli IImarker, adjacent to the Olympic Stadiummarker.
