Best Sports That Use a Ball

Almost every sport uses a ball. These are the best.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Yes I play defense. Soccer is so fun. You just deke and kick and pass, how caan you not love it, honestly it is great.

It's called football not soccer, never the less it does not stop me from loving it or playing it.

Soccer is the best and over here in Europe we call it football I play on the wing and soccer is very enjoyable - aido17

Easily the most played sport in the world

2 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 sport with most action and movements, european football is too boring and american football is not as good.

I don't get the point of this list but whatever because like a lot of spirts use a ball. BasketBALL, baseBALL, footBALL, softBALL, kickBALL, and soccer and tennis etc

Basketball is the best and the most fun sports you’ll ever play in your life!

Basketball is the most fun game in the world.
Every one can kick a ball in to a box. But not everyone can throw a ball in a hoop.

O crap I meant Murica! - lilrocketman

I like football. For a beginner, football can be very complicated for beginners, like me. But now I see the logic and am starting to enjoy it.

Boring, takes 4 hours to play a 1 hour game. Only Americans watch it, that say's it all

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

No ball in a sport is more diverse than a baseball. It is hit, caught, thrown, even given as a souvenir. No other ball in any other sport is as diverse. Baseballs are also probably the most unique put-together ball out of any other sports ball. For those of you wondering what I mean by this, take a baseball apart one day and you will see what I mean by this.

Baseball is my favorite sport

5 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.

I love the team spirit in volleyball. And the fact that you really can’t play it alone and always need your teammates. Everyone depends on everyone and you have to work together. I love it

Volleyball is such a good sport because it incorporates passing, hitting and serving like in tennis. It is fun to learn and play as well.

Volleyball is one of the most fun sports a girl can play
