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.

Didn't you say this was the worst on your worst sports list and if its not the best but it's good why is it number 1

I love basketball it is one my favorite sports to watch

no

This is definitely the best sport I am even doing a speech on it

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.

The real best sport of all time

Soccer takes skill and time to master, and most people just think you shoot or pass a ball but they probably can't even take a shot from outside the box.

Its number 1

Soccer is the best sport because it is fun and if you like to run you will like soccer

3 Hockey

No sport requires more training than hockey except for maybe swimming. At a very young age (1-3), a kid has to live in a cold/big city where there is a rink/frozen pond nearby to practice. Then, after a few years, the kid eventually gets gear for hockey, and plays it. After a few years of practicing, the kid eventually heads to bigger leagues, where they will be berated with hard blows from tough players. Then, by an extremely slim chance, the kid becomes a man, and makes it onto prospect teams. Then, by an even slimmer chance, the man makes it to the NHL/AHL where they have to play against the best. No other sport requires such skill and dedication to play, unlike the swines who think american football is the best.

Best Sport

My all time favorite Game

Best sport ever

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

They play the most games out of all sports. Despite only having about 500 million fans, other sports fans like maybe about one-third of soccer fans and two-fifth of cricket fans should start being fans of baseball. America's favorite pastime last century, it's still a great sport! It needs to start regrowing it's popularity by having almost another billion fans. Baseball is so much fun to watch! Even though Major League Baseball I wished should've been called Mega League Baseball instead to have all mega-cities with city population of at least 3 million or metro of over 8 million around the globe to automatically be members. American football fans saying that all other sports suck are wrong, you just don't care about other sports.

Go baseball woo

I love to play baseball.

Baseball best sport no capp

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

All the other sports suck

Football is the best sport and this site is fake news

It is the funest ever

It is the best sport I have played

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.

Its really easy to play

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.

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 takes a LOT of training and skill. The technique is really hard to master, and it is good for you!

Best and the most healthiest sport of all time. This is also the sport of the ultimate gold medalist, Michael Phelps! Note: swimming gives you an excuse to eat like a bodybuilder...

Very good sport to do in the summer and good for staying healthy

It's the saffest sport AND you use all of your muscles not just your biceps and quads

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.

Best sport by far and then hockey - Lacrosse17

It is way better than Volleyball

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 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

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

Gymnastics is awesome

Gymnastics is fun, both to watch and do! I have tried a lot of sports in my lifetime but gymnastics is the only one I still do. More people should try gymnastics.

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

10 Rugby

Rugby is probably the most stereotyped games ever. If anyone says that it is rough, violent, barbaric, etc..., they obviously have not played it.

Ps, soccer is for wimps

Rugby is my second favourite sport after Roller Derby but is definitely better than the ones in front of it and not just because I'm from Australia the best Rugby country in the world.

Best spooort

Rugby is the BEST!

The Contenders

11 Tennis Tennis Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each.

What would john connor play

Great sport should be number 1

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.

The best once your good, but frustrating when new. best solo sport

12 Cheerleading

Good sport?

I don't agree with this because cheerleading is not even a sports bro.

It's a sport? - Opinionatedarsehole

I love all of these sports. So the honorable mentions are everything. But cheerleading is fun and cool. I have experience

13 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.

I think cricket is the best

Cricket the best

best

CRICKET IS number 1 SPORT IN THE WORLD.

14 Softball

I think softball is an amazing sport. I love baseball as much as I love softball and we share the same plays and skills as they do. Being pushed by a baseball player is like saying both sports suck because they very similar in certain ways. Don't get me wrong softball is yet different from baseball but the differences are slim. If you want a faster sport I would watch softball. If you want a slower sport( maybe an all day event) I would watch baseball. It just depends

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

15 Track

Track & Field is just amazing

I train soccer and Athletics(Track) and I prefer Track than soccer because it relieves stress by running and increases your endurance and speed. There are no preferences in captains and there is no bribery in Athletics unlike soccer there is a lot of corruption.

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 ...read more.

This sport is awesome and you need to work hard to be a good equestrian

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.

Love the filling of riding a wave

One of the coolest sports as well

19 Bowling

This to me is more of a recreational activity than a sport, sort of like pool or snooker - Opinionatedarsehole

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

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

I love playing with hard balls

20 Mixed Martial Arts Mixed Martial Arts Mixed martial arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts.

Yak nothing better to do than to touch your opponent or hit it

Fighting is not a sport

Mr. Miyagi say wax on wax off

I do mma and it's fun, cool, healthy, and is a great workout therefore making it a sport😁

21 Golf Golf Golf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes from a range of 80 to 600 yards on a course in as few strokes as possible.

Made of all former baseball players

The best thing about golf is that you can set your own pace. You can be a competitive golfer without the need to rush yourself or "play hard".

Golf is the best sport to play because you can play it from as little as possible to as old as you can walk, unlike football, you can't play till you 80 years old and still be good at it

Golf is the greatest! My dad told me almost everything I know about golf

22 Field Hockey

Best sport ever. So dynamic, so fast, so fun to watch and play. Makes great groups. Takes lots of effort and sacrifice but it is AL WORTH IT

So that's how one spells coordination!

Awesome for hand eye cowardanition

23 Skateboarding Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.

Skateboarding is the best trick sport

Not sure if id call it a sport, but it's definitely one of the more funner things on this list

It is like the only thing to play at your house, (skateboarding)

The coolest bruh...yeah!

24 Badminton Badminton Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock across a net. Although it may be played with larger teams, the most common forms of the game are "singles" and "doubles".

To those people who are well advised or even in search of the truth, Badminton is their sport. If you play it with proper equipment in the indoor spaces dedicated to this awesome sport, there simply is nothing that even comes close. Exhilarating speed, power, soft touch, extremely explosive rallies and tremendous stamina and speed ate only some of what you'll see. Most people when exposed to top players skill abilities are aghast and dumbfounded. It makes what they perceive as Badminton look like a children's picnic. These top world players are very premium athletes that go through a training and conditioning regimen like no other. Just Google, 'This is Badminton' and you might get my drift. Cheers!

Best sport in existence. Obviously better than that muggliness.

Better than that muggliness!

It is a sport that makes you always active and gives you presence in mind so its no just a sport that is exciting and exercise but makes you healthy.LETS VOTE THIS SPORT at least AT TOP TEN.

25 Quidditch

nerds

I really can't imagine life without broomsticks! Way better than all those muggle sports.

Quidditch is awesome. I particularly love how the game continues endlessly until the snitch is caught. Way better than sports like soccer with a time limit. Also, I just couldn't pass up the opprotunity to fly around on a broomstick. That would be awesome, with or without the blusters!

I'm a wizard and it is one of my favorite sports

26 Horseshoes

Hmm.. a game where you throw a horseshoe around a piece of metal shouldn't qualify of a sport..

Way better than muggle quidditch!

I don't live this sport... but it sure is better than that muggliness!

27 Fives

Wall, hand, ball. Pure.

28 Running Running Running is a method of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. Running is a type of gait characterized by an aerial phase in which all feet are above the ground.

I wished this can be in the top 10. Running isn't easy. A lot of mind control.

You push yourself to the limit

Running is a great thing to do beacause it makes you fit and prefect shape and can be make your mind think

29 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

How is tennis infront of Hockey, Hockey is the best sport in the world.

Is the best sport

Um excuse me why isn't this higher up; are people that ignorant?

That's so true hockey should be #1

It’s actually a workout

love it

35 Paintball

It is so fun and you are shooting other people

Sport? Really? I wish...

It looks fun I want to play it so bad

How can someone not like paintball?!? You run around and shoot people with colours! :D

36 Squash

I can't believe it's only here it should be first

It's so fun to play, alone or with a mate. this should abesoulootley be in top 10!

I don't know what it is but it sounds
cool

37 Motor Sports

I think motor sports should be higher it is one of my favorite things along with mma

Better than golf, cheaper as well.

I love Motor Sports...

NASCAR

38 Chess

Chess should be #1 because, in chess, you can't get injured. It's a sport without a ball. In chess, you don't have to have muscles or skills, you just must know the rules, and that's it. OK, if you want to become a proffesional chess player, like me, it becomes kinda hard because you have to train a lot, but however, it's still a fun sport. Actually, my friend and me are both good in chess (he's my classmate and my best friend), and we certainly played around 100 games. I think him or me maybe lead around 52 - 48, but he always says he's better in chess. He forgets I was beating him just like that in grades 1, and a little bit of grade 2. He catched up to me, and now we're about equal, although he still has better rating, however, he plays very passive which can cost him, I am an attacker. And, I think he beats me just when I overlook a piece, a pawn, or maybe double attack or something like that. I can beat him without him overlooking something, I just attack him, his pieces become ...more

Chess is so cool, even though all the mean kids say its not a "sport" but I still love it though team captain

One time in gym the teacher told us to name a sport and a guy said chess now everyone thinks he is weird

Not to be mean but, chess is not a sport, but Rowing is rad

One of the most physically demanding sports

40 Skiing Skiing Skiing can be a means of transport, a recreational activity or a competitive winter sport in which the participant uses skis to glide on snow.

Skiing can be exciting

Its really fun but you're gonna need lessons because you can hurt you're self a lot but its super fun once you know how to do it you should really try it

Should be in the top 5! It's the most fun and definitely more of a sport than cheer.

Get to go really fast, basically flying; see beautiful scenery; glide through snow;

41 Taekwondo

Tae Kwon Do is an amazing sport! It requires discipline, speed, and loads of endurance! Sparring can be really hard, especially against a higher belt.

Amazing

42 Ultimate Frisbee

Ultimate is one of the most creative sports out there and its way under rated.

It combines aspects of a lot of different sports, is inexpensive to play, and is tons of fun. Ultimate is the way to go.

It's a great sport

Non contact, no refs, sotg, lot of hustle. great game most exciting game to watch. easy to get involved with

43 Hurling

Vomiting it mancunian - Opinionatedarsehole

Not as good as gaelic football - mcmcmc

I thought hurling was another word for throwing up!

Best sport, requires quite a lot of skill but if you work hard you can do it's and it's great fun, I've been playing for about 7/8 years now

44 Rodeo

It depends on how you do it I compete in horseback riding with an English saddle. It's very dangerous but so much.

45 Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.

The harder you work the greater you become. In Wrestling you only rely on yourself there is no one to blame. It is NOT FUN, but it is the most rewarding sport to know that you are only where you are because you put yourself there.

Wresting is a very technical sport it is harder then most other sports

Wrestling takes a lot of heart and determination

Wrestling is the hardest sport
