Best Medieval Sports

Some olden sports are still played today. Which do you think are still the most fun after decades?
The Top Ten
1 Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus.

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.

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 fun and I really love playing it especially at places like centre parks and places

Archery is number 1 because it's a good sport to test your accuracy even
Robin Hood fancied playing Archery!

2 Fencing

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.

Fencing is great. It builds strength, muscle, stamina, agility, concentration, and coordination. It also works the cardiovascular system.

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

Playing chess with a weapon. What's not to love?

3 Jousting

Jousting was created in medieval time as a form of entertainment

4 Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship more.
