Top Ten Most Boring Sports

The Top Ten

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.

Whack the ball, jump on go kart and drive for 20 minutes to the ball, repeat. No continuity, jumps between players, don't know where the ball's going, just shows the ball for a second in the air and then on the ground.

Suitable for retired, obese men.

I can watch most sports for at least 10 minutes, but golf gets an instant remote red button

What is the point of spending all day wandering around a HUGE big golf course trying to get a LITTLE ball into a LITTLE hole?

I LOVE sports. There are only a few sports that I don't like to watch, and golf is one of them. Playing it is great fun but watching it is like watching paint dry. Now, let's review other sports on this list:
Baseball: agreed. Very boring to watch. I tried several times, but I just HAD to change the channel every time.
Football (not soccer, football): One of the best sports to watch of all! Why is it on here?
Nascar - I never had a chance to watch it but after seeing highlights on Youtube I realized how boring it is to watch
Cricket - similar to baseball, very boring to watch just like baseball, the only difference between those two sports is that cricket lasts longer, making it worse than baseball.
Gardening - it's not a sport, who put it on here?
American football - too many commercials, boring to watch, it's better to watch rugby
Curling - a VERY overhated sport. It is not slow, not boring to watch, screaming is a little bit annoying but there's always an ...more

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

As Homer Simpson once said: "I never realized how boring this game is".

It's like watching paint dry. Entirely too many games played. Baseball is what I use to put myself to sleep when I have to wake up early for work. That's why when the camera man pans the camera thru the crowd during a game he'll almost always find 2 or 3 people sleeping in the stands. Just sad.

1.Golf
2.American Football
3.Cricket
4.Figure Skating
5.Basketball

I'm convinced that baseball is COMPLETELY RANDOM. It's sold to us as if pitchers have all this control and all these different pitches and that batters can decide whether to foul one off to get to another pitch. But, what's really hapenning is one guy throws the ball as hard as he can to a target and the other guy swings the bat as hard as HE can to hit the ball. Everything else is just a random number generator - the trajectory of the ball, where it crosses the strike zone, where it hits the bat and consequently where the ball goes if it makes contact - it's all just random. So, what's the point of that?

Auto Racing

They're making a left turn! They're making another left turn! I wonder what's going to happen next! So thrilling...

I would die if I had to watch nascar. we. the cars go around. and around. and around. BORING!

Even Hannah Montana is better to watch than watching people drive in circles

What the heck is NASCAR doing here NASCAR is awesome it should be at least top 40

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.

I play soccer as a kid and it is very fun you get lots of exercise and its not JUST kicking the ball into ONE goal. There are many different positions to play you don't just run after the ball. I mostly play goalie it's a little painful vein the goalie though its fun to be a midfielder. So no soccer isn't just running after a ball it's about teamwork and fun! Also being competitive :P

Soccer is actually very exciting I've been playing it for 4 years and it is awesome I'm on the A team

Soccer may be fun to play, but it is boring to watch. Went to a big friendly match at Giants Stadium (I know it's not called that any more, but I refuse to give in) and noticed most of the "fans" were looking at their phones or each other rather than the field until the ball got near a goal. It was a high-scoring game, for soccer, but still managed to be utterly boring when no one was kicking at a goal. The enormous field and lack of structure makes much of the passing game pointless with constant turnovers that just lead to more turnovers. And one official for the whole field? How the heck is that supposed to work? Every game has at least one horrifically blown call because there was no one there but the cameraman to see it, and obviously, that makes it much easier to throw a game as an official. Why does anyone watch this, let alone care so deeply about it that they are incensed to form murderous mobs over it? Beats me.

That is such an American comment! So you went to a friendly match have decided that soccer (and by the way it's called football) is boring. So I guess you think baseball and American football are exciting? Players standing around, endless commercials and the occasional moment of action.

So many games that end in 0-0 draws. Hockey's much more exciting and action-packed. Plus, the soccer players are absolute pussies.

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.

While I'm sure it would be interesting to watch, I've heard that matches can go on for days, especially the test matches. Have better standards.

All forms of British recreation are some sort of torture. Masochism is just part of the national psyche. Watching cricket is a way for Englishmen to isolate themselves for all possible entertainment for days at a time and thus fulfill their patriotic duty.

How can anyone sit there for a whole day to watch these people hit the ball every 5th ball

It is fun for cricket players to play for five days and l love cricket

Gardening

Is this even a sport?!?!

Whoever put this down as a sport must be high on the weed they are growing

Who ever put this down must be high on the weed they are growing

I think gardening is a very boring sport. Speed carrot pulling? Bah! Potato punch? Who could care less! Banana throw? Maybe if they worked as boomerangs, that would be cool. Watemelon smash? A little Intresting... Avocado avalanche? Fun to watch, not to play. Turnip Tables? Essentially a game of chess. Beet Beat? Pretending to be donkey kong.

Curling

You push a big rock and you pretty much broom your way to victory. So much fun.

I thought this was a joke sport made up by the simpsons writers, but it's not, it's a real sport. This fact was surprising for me. Have you seen how excited look the curling players? This is unreal.

Whew. The worst and yet people like pushing coloured rocks down an icey lane while freezing to death. Worse than bowling, and saved for the incontinent of mind and drawers. Bad sport that couldn't get more boring.

My father was born in Scotland but even I agree Scotland should have kept curling to itself it and buried it at least as far as a spectator sport or a TV sport to watch. Lawn bowling on ice. Yawn.

American Football

American football is nothing more than an hour of game play into a four hour event. It's total commercialism and the fans take it way too seriously. It's a game, take a breath, now get a life.

By that logic all sports are scripted and full of commercials - germshep24

A 2-hour event with only 3 minutes of gameplay. Wow. More boring than soccer.

I think most sports are boring to watch, but a lot can be fun to play. American football is like most sports, boring for me to watch, but I think It's insanely boring to play, too.

A game for boys trying to be men... I tried to watch it and couldn't, I grew up with rugby and comparing that to American football I just couldn't watch for a contact team sport this is boring only good thing is maybe a few good runners.

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 volleyball. Volleyball is life

I hate Volleyball. It's so flipping boring and slow, waiting for a ball and standing behind a net, hitting it and then repeat, while in sports like soccer, hockey, football etc there's much more action, and it requires you to run in order to help your team, which gives you that adrenaline. You do not get that adrenaline standing behind a net all day long.

Super boring just another sport of chucking balls with your hands

I hate volleyball, a lot of girls in my homeroom play it and talk about it. It just sucks.

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.

I certainly don't hate basketball. I have played it before and enjoy it. Watching, however, is very different. While points are put on the board by amazing top corner shots in soccer or amazing deep throws in football, points in basket ball are scored the same way every time, over and over throughout the whole match. Most of the time, offensive attacks result in hoops. I'm not saying there isn't skill involved in the plays, but it's different from other sports. I'd rather a very rare soccer goal that takes the crowd out of their seats or an impossible touchdown catch in heavy coverage. This is what makes a game fun to watch.

I don't find a game where people score repeatedly every match interesting. In soccer, at least a goal is remarkable and cool. This game has too much of it.

How is basketball boring. You must not play basketball or watch it

The players are so tall scoring is no problem. The rap/hip-hop association makes the reputation of the sport worse and hurts the reputation of the players. Teams can get as many as 200 points. In the closing seconds coaches will deliberately foul out their players in order to stop the clock despite it doing almost nothing.

The Contenders

Figure Skating Figure skating is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics, in 1908. The four Olympic disciplines are men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dance.

Are you seriously serious? Figure skating is NOT boring! It's hard and fun! Who doesn't wanna come and watch me skate in my sparkly dress and beautiful music, doing fast spins and high jumps. You've got to be kidding me.

So mickey mouse esp. when they do their triple this or quad that, and almost fall over cos they no longer have any speed. Looks so lame, but so uppercrust as to nauseate. Between the smell and the dreadful near-stops, pass the popcorn?

This sport is actually very fun! And to that person who said its girly, why don't you watch your fellow guy supporters figure skate around the room! And for your info, I hate twilight!

I'm not a figure skater, I have no idea how the scoring works or what the moves are, but I think it's very artistic and graceful and I really enjoy watching it. Skaters can skate twice as good as any hockey player and can do anything a dancer can with better artistic flow and balance. It can be relaxing, intense or just downright enjoyable. This really shouldn't be on the list.

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

The only good thing is watching those skirts away back and forth

If it wasn't for the BBC constantly pushing tennis it would disappear within months. In all my years no one has ever said "did you see that fantastic game last night" or similar. It is a game for the elite pushed by the elite who run the BBC.

You gotta be kidding me right now. Australian Open is awesome

Oh my gosh! Tennis is awesome! I play it and it rocks! Whoever siad this is wrong. There is something wrong with the person who siad this. If you play it (like I do) then you will understand how fun and difficult this is.
You guys are insane...

Rugby

American football exists because of these brats playing with an egg

What is rugby doing at number 50? Probably the greatest team sport there is! Must have been an American you made this list!

Rugby is by far one of the best sports the amount of team work it needs

Best sport ever clearly an American made this list thinking that their sports are the best not even acknowledging any other sport outside of the US

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

I did gymnastics and it was the gayest thing I've ever done. who cares if its hard, it looks so stupid. to be honest it looks like someone having an asthma attack mid air

Guys, did you read the title? This isn't the easiest sports list. You don't need to go into full detail about how hard it is to be a gymnast because honestly, we don't care. This is just what most people find to be the most boring sports to watch, even if they're hard. Plus, this is seventeenth on the list. It's not like you're even in the top five.

Gymnastics is such a hard sport. I'd like to see other people try to do it. But it's also so exciting and just amazing.

Umm ya right gymnastics is the funniest hardest sport ever and it's mah life screw you weirdos...

Darts

This is something you do at a bar or in your garage, not something that should be shown on T.V. or have the champion be reported on Wikipedia.

its not even a sport.. you throw stuff at a board.. woahhh! real amazing!

Its hard to do but extremely boring! Grass growing is more entertaining and watching crickets jump too!

I think they would be better off throwing the darts at each then they can really score where its at.

Dancing

One of my friends does contemporary dance and it is so boring. Its not even a real sport!

I love dancing with my homies

Boring to watch, UNLESS we are talking about exotic dancing.

Hi my names David Bailey and I love to dance. Dance is like my love, dance is life to me. When I dance it's better than masturbating, I lie in bed at night thinking oh my geez when is my next dancing sesh... I like to dance alone however I get moist when dancing with other male dancers. We like to buy girly costumes with sparkles. Peace.

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.

Horseback riding is not easy. Lets have you train a 1800 pound animal who doesn't speak English and wants to throw you off its back. You have to learn to move and communicate with your horse using your whole body. Riding uses all the muscles in your body to speak to tour horse. You need to know how to discipline and correct you horse without getting frustrated and sloppy. You don't just point a horse at a 5 foot fence and expect it to have the perfect gaits and striding to make the fence effortless and clean. You've got to think of your course, the next fence, your posture, your corrections, your speed, your strides, and your horses mindset... All in the short time you have before your next fence. Higher level riders and horses make it look easy since they've had years of experience and practice.

Equestrian events are all hype and money with the event only taking like a minute, save for dressage which is not as hard on the horse.

Horse riding is the best when you do cross rails (jumps) it feels like you are flying and when you gallop or canter it fells like you are flash and your horse good be funny

Horse riding IS A SPORT and it is definitely not boring. It's very exhilarating, so much fun and great exercise if you know how to ride properly. There's nothing as rewarding as riding a horse at a canter or gallop. However, it is also a dangerous sport. I had a serious accident many moons ago and nearly died but eventually I started riding again and it was great.

Bowling

Man but some people actually like it and even compete for money doing it! Hard to imagine a more boring thing even if playing it. Takes some finesse but if the lane sucks, gotta learn some english and then get lucky. Anyone suggest this dog, suck in one’s breath and suggest another event rather than waste time on this dog.

It's bowling. Bowling, like Jim Gaffigan has said, is the last thing you do before you go hang yourself. Watching someone bowl is most likely what one does AFTER killing yourself isn't an option.

Bowling is a little boring to watch, but it's fun to play I think that bowling should be on the list but it should be last.

I am surprised this is at number 17. It probably should be up there with golf and NASCAR.

Skeleton

What the heck is skeleton? I mean I have never heard of that sport... I mean can someone explain what the sport SKELETON is?

WHAT THE HELL IS SKELETON?

Skeleton is a sport where you get on a tiny ass board and slide down a bobsled course headfirst. Not boring at all.

Skeleton is a fast winter sliding sport in which a person rides a small sled down a frozen track while lying face down. The sledder goes relatively fast, but other than that, not much is very entertaining.

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 do think lacrosse is harder than most sports and way more fast passed that's including football because in football you get to stop every ten seconds for like a minute. And in lacrosse you have to be tough not only the goalie has to take a ball. Actually one of the rules for a defender is to try to have his goalie not to have to stop a ball at all that included taking a ball for him. And on average a freshman in highschool could through a ball 65 to 75 mph and in college could go up to 90+mph.
I play football and lacrosse and I have gone to state for both and I could say lacrosse is harder and honestly more
Fun. And I think that one day lacrosse will be more popular than football and maybe some day soccer.

Who ever put lacrosse at 31 thank you! What the world must realize is that lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet. Professional American Football players have said that lacrosse is much more difficult... Because it is! It is an hour straight of american football level contact while constantly running from a guy that wants to take your head off. The thing that I don't get is how Cheerleading bowling, and tennis came after this. CHEERLEADING isn't EVEN A SPORT! But not only do you have to run from the defense all over the field, you must also throw and catch a ball flying at 25mph, just for a gentle pass, with something that is a forgein object to your body. Enough said.

Lacrosse isn't boring because it's slow-paced, as it is a relatively quick-paced game. The problem with it is the fact that the the scores are too outrageously high (for one goal-one point standards) for anyone to be invested in. The defense can do virtually nothing to stop the offense from shooting, so lacrosse usually comes down to which goalie is worse. If there was a more reasonable amount of scoring, and more opportunity for the defense to counter the offense, then this sport would be far more interesting.

Guys, you have to realize the is MOST BORING SPORTS. If you've already forgotten that, you need mental help. Stop reading this and go see a phycologist, because you have brain damage

Polo

I love tennis I play 30 hours per week and anyone who says it requires no skill has never played the sport competitively. 2012 Australian open final 5:53 and I ended an 2 AM. temperature never dropped below 106 and each player sprinted more than 15k. THAT is not an in athletic sport!

I saw a porno once that had a horse and a woman. That was interesting.

Ha, why don't you go get on a horse then? Thought so.

I think polo is a very fun sport even when it comes to watching it you can end up learning some tricks

Cherry Pit Spitting

Cherry Pit Spitting is awesome! I especially like when you JUST SPIT CHERRY PITS ACROSS SOME GRASS! ITS REALLY NOT EVEN A SPORT!

Great sport and lotsa fun. If can hit the other side of the creek, will win a flat tire. Well, better than bowling and curling for sure!

I didn't know spitting anything from your mouth could even be considered a sport. Stupid.

What kind of sport is this? I don’t like cherries, so this sounds disgusting to me

Rounders

I love hitting Big balls as far as I can

It's the same as Baseball.

Except Rounders was invented first, baseball came after rounders - FefeCat

what?

Table Tennis Ping-pong, or table tennis, is a sport where players hit a lightweight ball back and forth across a table.

And now it's an Olympic Sport. It's the most BORING thing to watch AND to play. You smash a tiny ball off a paddle back and forth until the ball jumps away from you. It isn't very fun, or necessary to exist

So cool and a great way of having fun without too much physical action

It's boring tennis with the players bigger than the court, not the other way around. In fact, maybe it is baseball + tennis minimized.

It's great, not boring! But it is, I almost fell asleep when my dad made me watch it

Squash

We had a squash team at my middle school. To this day I still have no idea what squash is.

Squash is an amazing sport with long and exciting rallies

Squash isn't just hitting it against a wall

Better than athletics watching someone run round and round a track is so boring
