Top Sports In the Philippines

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.

I am very sure that basketball is the best sport in the Philippines, nobody in the Philippines don't know this sport, all of the kids, adults and seniors citizens love it too! And basketball should be the greatest sport of all time, oh! Even football players here plays basketball too! Indeed it is the greatest sport in the Philippines

It rocks! And we have enough knowledge about this sport so everyone can relate about it.

:DD I love this remote country.

I like basketball

2 Football

We filipinos need to start playing soccer and when I mean we I mean every kid in the Philippines needs a football, it will keep them occupied and you never know, if the kid has talent

Football is for pinoy cause we are too small for basketball and football is a easier sport and football our first played sport but American brings basketball like

Really really fun game and awesome if you have ever played it I play it I play it with my grandma

I was born and raised in the USA, but I am a pure Filipino. I excelled in basketball by athleticsm, hard work, and passion but then you realize that HEIGHT is way too important. Our DNA is not built for success in basketball! We know this already, but there are too many dreamers. The ceiling is too short. It is genetically rigged for European ancestry, Blacks, and tall asian countries like China. It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it will always be true. There are tall Filipinos, obviously, but this is not the norm and only time will tell.

In football/soccer, size doesn’t matter NEARLY as much. It really is much much more than physical attributes. Passion, understanding, and skill outweigh physicality clearly. We know this because of successful players in the world like Lionel Messi.
It is the beautiful game.. I would love to see Filipinos grow in the sport, domestically and internationally!

It can develop our speed skills and our agility plus our sportsmanship, it can remove our boredom and it can serve as our family bonding like in our family

Badminton involves speed, agility, power, presence of mind...

Because I can have an exercise while playing such a tiring game

5 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..

Boxing should be #1. Especially since they put out a ton of big stars. Every kid dreams of being the next Manny Pacquiao. They're dang good at boxing. And plus, boxing is the best sport on this list. By far

Boxing is fresh is the best sport it is tied with football all Filipino should play it helps you defend your self and stay in shape
