Top Ten Hardest Sports to Play Without Your Arms

I don't recommend you trying these sports with your eyes closed.

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.

Imagine trying to catch the ball without your arms! The only way you could is if you tried to squeeze it inbetween your head and where your neck and chest meet! Also trying to run up the court, and defending someone would be pretty hard because if he or she shoots or passes, you would have to use your body and head to defend him or her and could get hit in the head.

I need your hands to do everything. Not even allowed to use feet

Cause you can't use you foot or else the will call it kick ball so basketball all day

Ahh... basketball. I recommend you play cause it is so fun

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

Gymnastics IS the hardest sport without arms. From handstands, to round off back handspring double full. I am a level 10 gymnast. Only 12. I have to work my butt of every day of the week for 3 hours! Ugh. Gymnastics IS number one.

You could break your neck from this. - nintendofan126

It's impossible to do gymnastics without your arms. It's just impossible. - cosmo

You can't do any of the apparatus's without your arms!

I guess I'll have to drive with my feet. - nintendofan126

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

I've heard of a guy who played baseball with 1 arm before, but I can't see it happening with no arms... - Minecraftcrazy530

It is the hardest because it isn't even possible. - RalphBob

6 Horse Back Riding

Beatlesboy9 you are so wrong. Horseback riding is so hard and you could never do it. In no way does the horse do all the work. In no way it isn't a sport. Why do you think it is in the Olympics, huh? So just shut up about it not being a sport, same thing with everybody else that thinks that just go and be sad about your pathetic life because you can't be brave enough to trust in an animal 10 times your size. Thousands of people have either died or gotten seriously hurt. I'm only ten and I've already broken my arm and fallen off 8 times. So unless you want to get criticized even more, just go ahead and throw away your computer, and sit in a corner to cry about your sad life.

Horse back riding is the best SPORT ever so shut up about it not being a sport because it is! you probably haven't gotten up on a horse because you scared and you need insane courage to do it because right when you get in that saddle that horse could buck you right off and trample you. When I was 2 I had horse and when I was riding it throw me off and trampled me but I got back in the saddle after few days and rode her and was tough and now she has all the respect for me and it was because I never gave up. So don't disrespect horse back riding because it is hard and dangerouse so I would shut your mouth unless you want to get called names at by a girl.

You play basketball? Good for you, you use your arms and feet. I use my whole body to control a huge animal 3 times my size sometimes more. This is the hardest sport I've ever seen and played. Your hands could be moving a little bit and you could get disqualified. And whats even hard is that we have to make sure no one can see us ask the horse to do something.

Today my instructor made me do a course with one hand and I'm at a very high level (no offense I'm really trying not to brag) and I had to the jump like 6 times because I couldn't steer my horse to the jump.

8 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.

Hockey in general is dangerous. But playing without your hands, is just asking for death. - nintendofan126

I bet you some Canadian tried to show off and broke a few ribs while trying to do this... - Turkeyasylum

It would be like doing karate on ice. - Chaotixhero

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

You know what I don't get? They call it Football but you use your hands in a game called Football. It's called Football so why can't I use my foot? Does anyone see the problem here? It's called Football but I can't use my FOOT excpt for running. - Chaotixhero

If is American Football is hard but if is Soccer Football this a Little much easy

They call it football because the game used to revolve around kickers - CityGuru

Whoever calling football as soccer, that person is lame and retarded.

10 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.

The difference between cricket and baseball is that cricket is good and baseball sucks. (by the way I'm British) a proper man!

I want to know in cricket which part of the arm to increase to bowl fast

Cricket? What kind of sport is that? - Chaotixhero

It's when someone bowls a delivery on the pitch and someone hits the ball with the bat. The difference between cricket and baseball is that there is no based and you run up and down between 2 wickets - Cyclone97

11 Archery Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus. V 1 Comment
12 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.

Okay, I love soccer. I play soccer. I think it's a very hard sport. But I think that it would be a lot harder to play volleyball or softball without your arms. Unless you are goalie, arms in soccer are just for throwing and keeping balance. And of course when you fall they are to stop you from falling on your face.

In soccer You don't even use your arms at all besides the goal keeper who could (if push came to shove) use his head chest or feet!

Throwing the ball that's out of bounce back in bounce I meant.

13 Boxing 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..

It's martial arts but with only kicks - Chaotixhero

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

You need to use your hands to hold the racket. In fact any racket sport would be hard.

15 Running Running
16 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.

How do you even play without your hands?

Ok HOW would you even hold the stick and run? This should be higher on the list for sure!

17 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.

With volleyball you use your hands for setting hitting blocking bumping digging and serving this should be way higher than soccer because you don't use you arms at all in soccer the only thing in volleyball you can do is kick and that's all you do in soccer

18 Javelin

Is it even possible? - Koolness88

19 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.

Just think what could be harder, you're not taking anyone down in THIS sport. Heck any sport!
