Top Ten Hardest Sports to Play In Water

The Top Ten

1 Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players each. It is played with a spherical ball. The objective is to score the ball in the other teams goal.

At last you throw the ball in football, you only kick in this, everything would float and so would the net. Football would be REALLY hard to play underwater.

Hey! Look! It's already a thing. It's called Water Polo. Well, it more like rugby because you can hit each other without getting in trouble, unless you can't master the art of punching someone when the ref isn't looking.

Water polo is used with hands, the goals are tiny, the pool is pretty small and nothing like soccer. You can't dribble so what are you talking about?

Soccer would be so difficult to play under water and nearly impossible. It makes sense why it's at the top of the list.

The ball floats and it is really hard to kick the ball you will have too throw it!

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

Well then your pet fish would be having a Super Bowl get it pet fish live in a fish bowl heh heh heh

I just can't imagine how tough this would be. And how badly you would ache afterwards.
Great list, Garythesnail!

A person can tackle you and you wouldn't breathe.

I play football in water all the time

3 Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus.

How can you do that?

4 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.

You can't dribble a ball underwater. This is a great list.

You've heard of water basketball, right?

You'd need balls that bounced on water!

You can't dribble underwater lol

5 Track

It's is the one that play's in the winter

Its called swimming

Hard to run in water

6 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.

What if u went WATER skiing because pretty much u r in water

This is impossible unless you have snow

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

Just very difficult for me to imagine this.

8 Dodgeball

This would actually be a little easier because you can go under water if a ball is coming towards you.

How would you throw underwater?

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

Have you guys ever heard of underwater hockey (or octopush in the UK)? It's a real sport

How can you shoot

The Contenders


This is funny rely I mean it could work if you made NASCAR speed boat. but at the same time its just funny to think about. I mean you could do this with water sealed cars with oxygen tanks but at the same time the car might or might not need to be in the floor kinda. I don't know my point is its funny but could or could not work depending on if you wanted to change the rules or the vehicle its self

You need a car to race. There are not many cars that go on water. There is such thing as a boat, but then that wouldn't be NASCAR

How would this work? The water would probably wreck the car.

A race with cars running at 0,0000000002323321332451 mph. And 0,00000000000000000000000001 seconds later they stop working.

12 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.

What you can't run in water

13 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".
14 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.

Damnit, my golfball is floating!

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

Its really easy to do gymnastics in water

It is easy to do gymnastics underwater although you cannot do complexed skills with the hold back of the water

16 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.
17 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.

I am controlling this giant animal think how hard it would be in water.

18 Drag Racing

This would be impossible to do in water.

Like, seriously, how would this work

Easy! you do it in canoes!

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

How could you stay on the mat?

20 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.

Umm... so a few people have said that this would be water polo... I personally play water polo and it is literally NOTHING like volleyball in water! For starters, there is no net, you can CATCH the ball, and you can SCORE GOALS, in an actual goal. (I also play volleyball)

Water volleyball is played all the time.

It's called water polo.

21 Snowboarding
22 Water Polo

So I guess the opposite is land polo?

Actually requires skill and physical prowess rather than just mucking around trying to kick a soccer ball in the pool

23 Lacrosse
24 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.
25 Boxing Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..
