Some olden sports are still played today. Which do you think are still the most fun after decades?

The Top TenXW

1ArcheryArchery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus.

The feeling of shooting the arrow through the air feels great. - sarahdomino

Also it has become a pro sport and it was the main weapon of its time it was one of the things that could fire long ranged and was only operated by one man. Kill a man quick!

Archery Is Number One Because It Is The Most Efficient Weapon And In The Battle Of Crecy in 1346, the French army was decimated. It is estimated that nearly 2000 French knights and soldiers were killed by the longbow arrows. The English lost just 50 men.

I love archery. I could be the next robin hood

2Fencing

Fencing is the best sport in the world I know they started in the 14 hundreds but it is very dangerous I own a fencing court my parents are millionaires I own 15 fencing swords

You learn a new way to walk and challenge others. Of course hitting someone feels good. Why shouldn't it? Its not something you are born able to do so it really is unique. - sarahdomino

I love playing fencing, I know that people start playing fencing in the 14th century!

Fencing is the best sport ever!
