Easiest Sportsjbatista i know some sports in this list have some rules that are hard to understand, but this list is about when you play for fun with some pals
The Top TenXW
Soccer is simple to look at. It's EXTREMELY harder to play. It requires mentally knowing every person's position on the field, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, coordination, foot-skill, and so much more. All you need is a field, ball, and net. But you need so much more to actually be able to play it WELL. Think the goalies have it easy? Try falling on the ground on your ribs 50 times per game. Try anticipating that shot that comes 90 miles and hour. Please don't say it's easy when you're just looking at the simplicity of the rules of soccer. I assure you it's harder to play.
Here's my opinion on all that say soccer is easy, you don't know what your talking about and your incredibly naive. In soccer games you usually run 7 miles per game and that is very hard and athletic. Baseball players don't even run 1/10 of that and basketball and football players don't run 5/10 of soccer players. Then there's the skill mentally and physically for physically it takes years to develop ball control and skill. Come on its not like some idiot gymnast who do the same move over and over. For all who says they played soccer and hated it and said it was easy well your wrong you probably played on a crapy rec team and you were the worst player. Imagine those who play select and premier and played their whole lives. - cnjdombrow
Not saying it's easy, but it is the easiest. As a study once discussed in a Sports Illustrated article concluded, basketball is the sport that requires the highest level of athleticism, soccer was far down the list. It's why 4 year Olds can play it. Someone said soccer players run 7 miles in a game. Watch a game, most of the players are standing around most of the time. 7 moles in 90 minutes is really only 4 miles an hour. WALKING speed is 5 miles an hour.
Yeah, this is super easy no offense. I mean yes when you get to a very elite competitive level it can be a little harder. I know many will disagree but that is just my opinion. Try holding 3 times your body weight on a single toe, now that is hard.V54 Comments
I play golf and it is definitely the hardest sport! I don't even understand why its on this list. People think it's so easy but you should try it before you open your mouth. The conditioning and fitness I do for it is INSANELY hard. I weigh 60 pounds and push sleds with 120+ pounds. In golf you have to be really strong. Golfers don't "RETIRE" at 25 like most soccer players do either. The margin for error is huge. A golf ball is 50 times smaller than a basketball or football. The mental toll is insane as well. While you basketball people are playing the AC I'm out in the 100 degrees heat for 4 hours. Golf requires so much coordination. I also have to train my muscles to work together. you people are totally underestimatibg a really hard sport. So before you open your mouth you should try to do it and see how hard it really is.
Hmm, is that why Ronaldo is 31 and still playing soccer? Golf is easy that's why in golf they don't retire until, they're dead. - _SoccerGirl
You people out there who think this sport is boring and easy are stupid and have no class. I agree that this sport is boring to watch but it is a completely different story when you play it yourself. It is the hardest sport to play period. For all you basketball, football, soccer fans out there, go to a golf course and try to hit a 1 inch ball into a 3 inch cup from 500 yards away in less then 6 strokes. Just try it.
I've played it and it really is easy. I've seen kids in PE hit the golf balls 100 yards without any previous experience. We also do some putting, and that requires a little more skill but not much. You barley do anything! It requires barely any physical demand. You should try to play other sports before making ignorant remarks. Sure, your arms might get tired from swinging the club but at least soccer players run.
You just hit the ball it is easyV14 Comments
Noo basketball is extremely challenging. Its like football but without pads. The amount of running is similar to that of football or soccer and it requires lower and upper body strength. Though it is physically demanding, its rather easy to pick up and understand. Gets more mentally challenging the older you get.
Basketball like soccer is a very hard and athletic sport running and ball control wise. Seriously basketball is a 3 I want to knock whoever made this list in the head.
Am not voting because I think it's easy but its because its think the opposite. Half of the sports here are 10 times harder than cheer I take cheer and a lot of these sports are much harder.
Basketball is pretty easy. If you get touched it's foul. If you flop it's a foul. So basketball yeah it's one of the easier ones.V26 Comments
You may be able to throw a ball down the land and hit some pins or get a few stores a game, try getting more than than four in a row and not missing any spares the whole game. Good luck. Try averaging 220 a game for six games straight. Not going to happen. Curling is all about repetition and consistency to actually bowl in a real leauge and make any money. Even young kids average 180 in their tournaments and that's bowling six to eight games back to back. Bowling is one if the hardest sports bit the hardest but top ten to become any good at.
Bowling is a very hard sport. I have been bowling for 40 years and trust me, it takes tons of practice. And that guy who said five year olds can hit pins, that's because they use ball rollers. - benhos
You're knocking pins down with a ball. Little kids play bowling, if a five year old can knock down a pin then you can too.
Only fat people who have no skill play this sportV9 Comments
Recently learning volleyball, trying out for my schools team, and making it I understand why people think that it is a fairly easy to learn sport. I came into the sport thinking that it would be easier to learn than basketball, which is another sport I play along with track and field. I was complacently wrong, learning to play volleyball is definitely the hardest. You need to learn how to hit, set, block, dive, sprawl, and many more. and don't forget the fact you need to learn different variations of each thing. before I played I would need to put hours of just learning the rotation which is hard physically, and mentally. we come home after practice with burns, bruises, and sore muscles, with only knee pads to protect us just like any sport, and it is definitely one of the hardest. (by the way there is a difference between real volleyball and gym volleyball, gym volleyball is the one where you just stand there and its really easy. )
Yeah starting out it's really easy but if you played club it would most likely be lower on the list. Like any sports, it's easy to get the basic motions down but it gets harder as you progress. For example, spiking a volleyball correctly is hard. Same with jump serves, bumps, and sets.
I played volleyball for a long time, I agree it is pretty easy. I'm a gymnast as well, and compared to the hard training that gymnasts endure volleyball was a nice break from it. It does take some skill though.
I love volleyballV12 Comments
A pole in the middle, two players on each side, and a ball hanging from the top of the pole... the only objective is to hit the ball to the opposing side - jbatista
May be the easiest "sport"... But to me its definitely the funnest haha
Is it even considered a sporth though?
Is this even a sport? I thought it was a simple playground game.

Looks hard but I don't understand it
Never heard of it? Like what even?V5 Comments
That's a lie. Ping Pong takes so much mental capability because that ball is flying at you so fast. You have to think about the spins, speed and your counter-spin.
Hard, if you stop for a week you lose a lot of technic, and the psychological plays a lot, by the way, it's extremely hard to correct all the technical problems a player has, you really need to be mentally tough to play this sport seriously
This is easy if you rallying but hard because it comes at you so fast
Best game everV4 Comments
Baseball. What to say first. Well...90% of the game you just stand there in the field and do nothing or stand in the dugout eating chicken wings and drinking beer #Red Sox 2012 and if you are a pitcher you only play in every 1 in 5 games if that. Actual baseball players say in interviews that they just swing the bat and try to get lucky. Sports Science actually did a segment on this and they proved that baseball players can't know for sure where the ball is so they must just swing and try to get lucky. Baseball players claim they know where its going, but that is just to make themselves feel better. I have nothing else to say. Wait, actually yes I do. In any sport where the best players are morbidly obese it must be a joke. It is not a coincidence that the only other sport where this is true is sumo wrestling
Soccer/football number one? HA!
Let's put this into a better perspective.
Let's say that we are determining which sport is easiest based on professional play.
Soccer, forget it. No way in hell 5% of the population could run 90 minutes the way any Barcelona player can.
Tetherball, I don't know, pretty easy, but Baseball is still easier.
Basketball, no way in hell you could play defense like Kobe, Lebron or Dwight. You'd get trashed and offense? Forget about shooting, you're gonna get blocked. Once they play D on you, you'd probably get it stripped.
Golf? That sport is really hard, maybe not energy wise, but skillwise, harder than anything.
Tennis, way harder than you think.
Can you stand there? Yes.
Can you swing a bat and hope to get lucky? Yes.
Can you sit in the dugout most of the game? Yes.
Can you stand in the outfield and catch a ball with more ease than trying to score on Goalkeepers or make a layup on a 7 footer (2.2 ...more
Baseball players have the ability to play other sports easily like football or soccer since parts of baseball are very similar to those sports. But put a football, soccer, or basketball player up to the plate against somebody throwing a ball 80-100 mph from 60 feet away. Baseball is definitely the most mentally challenging game. You need good timing and reaction. Though its not as physically demanding as football or basketball, it's still one of the hardest sports you could ever play
Baseball is hard sport to playV20 Comments
Ok I'm a swimmer and I totally agree with this! I even have a shirt that says " if swimming were easy they'd call it football" sure it may be dangerous getting hit and stuff but really? It's not that hard! My Best friend does football and swimming and he even says swimming is a million times harder! Besides at games you sit on the side line half the time and don't even play. And when. You are on the field you're not guaranteed to be running. So what I'm saying here is that football is easy.
Football is an amazing sport and anyone who thinks its easy is a complete fool
This sport is hard! All these gymnasts think they would just be bruised... One Cardinals player lost his finger! Definitely hard to play!
Football is actually really hard. You run and get hit with full contact. And slot of risks of injury, and plus they are running around with pads that actually weigh quite a bit.V22 Comments
Its easy its just like straining your face and moving your arms back and staniforth
Stand with one foot in front of the other and punch... That's pretty much it - jbatista
Ya and cycling is riding a super light expensive bike that took 2 cents to make and wering womanish spandex while riding a few miles, and since when did you fight a few pals, theylle get broken teeth! And you need a lot of strategytizing inmboxing, you nreed to be fast, and your being a nasty nerd mr jabatabisé mariacho benitezV2 Comments
The game is challenging. It's not just about hitting the shuttle, but how hard you hit it. How much distance. And how fast you can get to the shuttle. - ARandomPerson
Very very easy. After one round you'll completely understand the game and be a pro. It's one of my favorites. Really addicting and super fun, also very easy to understand.
To me this sport is hard. But because I'm not fast is the reason why. Well if I get fast it would be as easy as ABC!
I love Badminton also - RighteousV4 Comments
SERIOUSLY!?!?! For your information on this same website, swimming is ranked the second hardest sport! I've been swimming half my life now and I know it is definitely NOT!
Swimming is the hardest sport ever! You have to swim so many laps. 200meters in the pool is two football fields! Most of us have to swim 500meters just for warm-up. You have to wake up at 5 in the morning and practice till school starts then you have to swim once more after school until the coach tells you to stop! Swimming is the hardest sport ever!
Swimming is the 2nd hardest sport and 1st most demanding on this site. We swim 11x a week, in the gym 4x a week. You call this easy, come to a practice. We do more kicks than soccer players, more flips than gymnasts, more dives than volleyball players, we go further to reach our 'home plate' than baseball/softball players, and you call this sport easy
For all of you who think swimming is easy, you are dumb. Swimming is an endurance sport that burns 4x as much calories as running does. If you think this is easy, come to the pool. I will time your 100 free and I can show you how many 8 year odds are faster than you.V11 Comments
I disagree because if you want to win then you are going to need to hit hard with top spin and you need to hit to a certain part of the court and a certain way in different situations. Also for your serve you need it to be hard, deep, and have a lot of top spin.
Yeah, all that stuff in the main topic is literally all you need to do to play tennis. Focus on good serves and returns and you can play tennis...
Tennis is very difficult when you are playing a game under pressure. Tennis takes lots of thought in terms of where you want to hit the ball on the court and the right power. It is difficult to hit hard and at the same time get it over the net with topspin. Therefore I disagree
Tennis is the hardest sport I have ever played. Many people say it's easy and that all you have to do is hit it over the net. But they are wrong that's more like vollyball. Literally I have had to do so much conditioning my teammates have cried and have been in shock for a few minutes after running. You have to cover a whole court and physically get to EVERY part of it. You are also mentally alone while in other sports you could be doing horrable but still win the game because your teammates did good. Not in tennis. You are alone and have to rely on your self. Mentally and physically strong
I could never do this one.V8 Comments
Anyone can eat this is not a sport and to who ever does it Stop this is not a game and certainly not a SPORT binge eating is very unhealthy
Shut up. It is very much a sport. If you go off that logic, then football is just people throwing a ball into two separate field goals with a point system. Anyone can do that. Any white man can cry over this. The end.V9 Comments
Cheer leading is not easy.. we have to seal crawls, real push-ups, leg raises, crunches, sprints, planks, and 100 jumps EVERYDAY and it increases every day.. and it is a sport because you compete against other schools.. you memorize 90+ cheers, 20+ floor cheers, Meet the Team cheer, Hello cheer, before the first game. You should try it. See if it's a sport or not. And our seasons go all year round by the way.
Cheerleading is actually super hard, very difficult.
Dude all you do is chant at each other...
That's true in sideline cheer, but competitive cheer, now that shouldn't be on this list. - PianoQueen
Cheerleader is super easy... And boring
Again, sideline cheer is what you're talking about probably. Competitive cheer can be really cool at a high level. - PianoQueenV6 Comments
Netball is really simple the only skills you need is catching throwing and you need a loud voice like me if you are like me you don't like sport net ball is really easy to get into
Sounds really easy... Try to say it is harder than baseball, basketball, gymnastics, or cheer (al star cheer).
You have to love it its de easiestV4 Comments
Gymnastics is not easy at all. It is actually the hardest sport. Search the hardest sports and it will come up. Watch an elite competition and try to do what they do.
Whoever thinks gymnastics is easy should get themselves educated, quick. Not only does gymnastics require countless hours of hard work, but it is the combination of floor, beams, vault, bars, and so much more. Also it is very dangerous so it take up to a year to perfect a new skill!
Are you crazy? Gymnastics is definitely not easy. you think it's easy? Try it. you couldn't last one minute
Its not easy its fun I love it so much I would do anything to get into the squadV13 Comments
Are you kidding? Cross country is incredibly hard. "Doesn't get easier than running"? You try running hours and hours of mile repeats and doing 400, 800, and 1200m repeats until you feel like you're about to pass out. Try being so physically exhausted and out of breath that you literally can't stand and collapse on the ground. Try having your legs be in so much pain that they feel like they're on fire. Try training so hard that passing out would be a huge relief. In no other sport do you push yourself so hard that you pass out or collapse or throw up. Cross country is the number one hardest sport I've ever done, and I'd like to see you make it through a single practice.
I've actually tried this sport, and it's kinda tough. Totally harder than most sports in the list. - SmashBall
If your actually good cross country is the hardest sport
This is as much as a sport as competitive eating, which its not. - _SoccerGirlV6 Comments
