Top Ten Best Sports to Play

The Top Ten

1 Basketball Basketball Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard at each end.

Basketball is the best sport that you can play because it is a game that you need to hustle for. You are always moving your feet and it takes arm strength to shoot. You also need speed.
Another reason is because you can play basketball when you are older, if you play football good luck with that. It doesn't involve tackling. It is less barbaric. Basketball is the way to go!

Basketball is just so exciting. No matter at what point of time it is in the game, making a shot just gives you a kind of thrill that you can't get anywhere else. Injuries are rare, and even so, it is one of the most fast paced and tough games to play. It takes a lot of skill to make a ball in a small basket. Basketball is the best sport because it has CLASS and requires skill, not just brute force, to play.

Basketball is so much of a better sport to play than football because you don't always get hurt and it is still fast paced and exciting. I would say that football is the best sport to watch, with football being number 2, but basketball is definitely the best to play.

It is da best

2 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

People underestimate soccer because they think all you have to do is kick the ball. You need to get past skilled defenders, stop tricky offensive players, and make the shot get past an agile goalie. Soccer is just as much of a physical game as a mental game. Foot skills are needed, and every time you get shoved down you have to grit your teeth and come back fighting harder.

I believe soccer is by far the best sport to play. It is lots of fun and it has what you will never find in any other sport. You need foot skills, eye coordination, mental preparation, and smart choices. I play for a club in England so I would know. Soccer has things you will never find in anything else and is extremely fun too!

Soccer is a great team effort. I have played for 9 years and have loved every minute of learning the game and bonding with my team!

Soccer Is better

3 Hockey

You're on a slit of metal 1/8 of an inch thick, on a giant ice cube trying to stay upright, while other players are trying to beat you to death with clubs and you play 82-110 games a season just to raise Lord Stanley. The sheer pace of a game 7 OT Stanley Cup final will be enough to give you a heart attack. Hockey is non-stop action. There's a lot of reward in watching your team rebuild over 7-10 years to just get a CHANCE to finally raise the Cup. Or in some teams cases, they've been waiting 50+ years for it and when they get it, it will be euphoric.

Is harder than most sports if you think about it. A bunch of people wearing a ton of gear while skating on a thick sheet of slippery ice on a thin blade while people are trying to hit you and you have to score. Hockey players pretend they aren't hurt. If they do get hurt they go to the locker room for a couple of minutes get some stitches and come right back out again.

Fastest pace sport there is. Most dangerous too. A case could be made for football though. People don't give Hockey enough credit it is easily the best sport in the world hands down! - chubbyterror77

Hockey is such a epic sport some of the best sports story are in hockey some of the best teams are in hockey.its much more simple then other sports like football basket balls scoring system just seems really dumb and just plan wired and inconvenient. If your bad on ice you can just play floor hockey too

4 Baseball Baseball Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.

Basketball around the world doesn't have a lot of country's playing it, but baseball is in America and the biggest continent in the world Asia. You guys probably ranked baseball ninth because It is a smart persons sport.

The original America's favorite past time, baseball is jaw dropping and awe inspiring with its fastballs, diving stops and out of the park home runs. It is no wonder that it is not the most popular sport, because it takes so much skill.

It's America's favorite pastime who wouldn't love it

It's the only major sport without a time clock, only the best team wins.

5 Football Football American football is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end.

I play basketball, football, and volleyball. I prioritize football simply because the feeling of being a football player makes me feel as a better person. Basketball is a great sport, but I feel it does not change my life out of the game. The way somebody presents them self on a football field shows a lot about their character. It is a great reward when you do amazing things on the field. I play volleyball to keep myself active on my off seasons.

I don't play football for a reason, there are a lot if rules every time I try to play I get confused. When ever I watch I either lose interest or feel like I'm gonna throw up cause of all the violence and all of the football players act like big shots (well at least at my school where almost every boy plays football)

Sorry but it's true, that's why soccer is the world famous sport, it's easy, interesting, not skull-crushing-violent, and we don't act like we rule the world (except during the World Cup but... )

Football hands down. Fast pace, physical, violent sport that will always get the adrenaline pumping. The big hits, the big passes, the great runs, the game winning play. Nothing like some American Football.

Football is the best sport I have ever played, I hope one day I can win the world cup for Britain!

6 Volleyball Volleyball Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.

Volleyball is a great sport to play. It allows players to develop team building skills and hustling skills.

I really like net ball which I would have loved to have seen on the list. I play netball in a team along with lots of friends and after play volleyball!

Volleyball teams get closer than any other sports team. We are always there for each other. We are family, and we support each other on and off the court. No sport I have playes has had so much impact on my life. Volleyball is the way to go, socially and athletically.

Volleyball is definitely the best sport to play. it helps people learn to play as a team and how to hustle

7 Swimming Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

Swimming is just so great and is an amazing way to prepare the muscles in your body, as well as focus more finesse and less on just muscling your way through. The team swim coach is a real chubby guy, but is an elegant swimmer, where he does it so gracefully and smooth, and can make it through a whole 50 yards quicker than your can blink.

Swimming is a great sport it helps you develop muscles and get in shape if you are not some of the practices and insanely difficult but they are fun at the same time. I makes you relaxed and refreshed and makes you push yourself to your own limits. I know that you compete by yourself but you have a team that really is your second family that is why swimming is a great sport

If one swims, they become jacked. All of a swimmer's muscles are very well defined and are not the average man's bulky muscles which by the time you're 70, will be very sore and painful because of the tension. Swimmers can achieve sexy, elegant and flexible muscles without having backstabbing and damaging effects on the body when you're older.

I'm on a swim team

8 Lacrosse Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.

I play girls lacrosse and I think it is the best because they don't give random sports the tittle of fastest sport on two legs for no goood reason so maybe some of you people should open your eyes and smell the roses cause you must be dreaming if you think that basketball is the best! And I expext better of them football players to be at the top, so were are you standing right now in front of the line of duty (haha)-(or also meant as danger for the kids who don't know) or are you behind the line of rightness

There is enough scoring that it doesn't bore you out of your mind (soccer and hockey) but not so much scoring that you don't even cheer for a point. And I personally love the celebrations from the players.

I play boys lacrosse and I am a defense men. It is the greatest sport here, only hockey comes close since I play both. It is really fast paced and it is played in the heat. Also, the fun of lacrosse tournaments completely made my summers before I turned 13. I don't want to be a sore loser but in basketball, it requires no strength. Since when do you see a hulking basketball player check someone onto their butt? Not much. ALso, in swimming, there is no object to it really, you jsut slap a rubber cap on and frolick! I just committed to a d1 lacrosse school, Notre Dame and it is the best day of my life. LAX is LIFE

I don't know why lacrosse is not the most popular sport... that's all I have to say

9 Gymnastics Gymnastics Gymnastics is a sport involving the performance of exercises requiring strength, flexibility, balance and control.

Gymnastics is the best sport to play because you can always learn new skill, get better, and perfect the basics. You can also express yourself through the style of your routine and skills, not to mention how physically fit you are! I love this sport and I don't know how I could live without it

Gymnastics is one of the best sports you can play because you can express yourself and it is fun and it is at some times hard but fun and that is why I love it

My favorite sport! Its fun! Its tiring but about sports the no. 1 thing is FUN! Its hard but if you keep practising you'll think it's a great sport.

Such a great sport to play, you make so many great memories and you make friends for life by playing with others. It's great because you can be on a team or you can be independent.

Awesome sport running pace speed and best feeling I can think of

There's nothing better than smacking a ball as hard as you can and watching it stay in

It is awesome sport to play and I know that you can play only 1v1 or 2v2 but it still train your strenght and your speed. And also it is fun.

13 Softball

Softball is an amazing game. Most softball players get insulted and pushed down by baseball fanatics because they think we can't play. It's ridiculous because we train just as hard and just as long as any baseball player. Why isn't this up on the list with baseball?

The best game to ever play I have played. For 7 years it is a awesome game to play and watch it is a healthy hobby to play cause there is a lot of running everyone is good at playing softball:-)

I think softball is the best because you have a family and you get to take your anger out on the ball and get dirty it so much fun I think this is the best sport

The best game in the world and it gets pushed by base ball

14 Cricket Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

Cricket is very good because of the strategy you must form and the skills of strength and it is for the efficient use of strength and energy.

The person who said it was the most boring game on earth should just shut up

The most boring game on earth try it, its useless

Cricket is the best

15 Track

I think Track would be a good sport to play because, it helps you increase your endurance and is a little less demanding.

Raw athleticism. Track runners, jumpers, and throwers are no joke.

16 Horseback Riding 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.

Horseback riding is actually a lot harder that you think. You have to maintain balance and stay connected with your horse.

I love horse riding so so much I love being with the horses

We don't play. We work. Unlike many other sports.

Horse riding is so fun! I go to a barn and ride... my favorite horse died and so0 did his owner. This is a sport I don't care what people say! people above said basket ball is thrilling and you have to move on a house. My opinion is houses are the best anmle( sorry dogs etc..) The only problem is is it is sooo much money.I clean stalls for ridding time. Ask your parents if there is a locale barn and then ask if you can clean stalls for money, they are such sweet entget anmoles and daring. Be safe well riding...But have fun!
thank you for reading

20 Bowling

Bowling is so much fun. I could bowl for hours and never get bored.

The only fun sport in my opinion. You also have to use every part of your body including your brain because you need to think about how to get a strike 100% - MChkflaguard_Yt

I love playing with hard balls
