Top 10 Easiest Sports to Play

i know some sports in this list have some rules that are hard to understand, but this list is about when you play for fun with some pals.
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.

Soccer shouldn't even be a sport. Not all the players run the entire time, and the net is HUGE! There is no challenge when the net is as big as it is. And I've seen "professional" players kick a ball from 25 to 30 yards away from the goalie and the goalie doesn't have the vertical to stop the ball or the reflexes to react to it. Athleticism? Give me a break. They are well conditioned, and that is all. Put any of them on the field or court in something that requires real athleticism, and they would never survive. And yes, some soccer players are kickers in the NFL, but they are KICKERS, and they won't play any other position because they don't possess the same athletic ability as required by other positions.

Any athlete who plays basketball, baseball, football, or hockey can play Soccer easily. I never played soccer in my life but since I'm athletic I played one year and was one of the best on my team.

Completely overrated. So easy, literally all you have to do is run around and kick a ball. It's not very hard to kick a ball to the right teammate, or into a giant goal. It requires zero coordination because everyone is running in the same direction and a nearby teammate could just run up to the ball and kick it away from the other team at any moment. There's all these soccer players complaining that it's hard... I've done it at recess and I was considered "amazing" by people who are competitive

Not saying it's easy, but it is the easiest. As a study once discussed in a Sports Illustrated article concluded, basketball is the sport that requires the highest level of athleticism, soccer was far down the list. It's why 4 year Olds can play it. Someone said soccer players run 7 miles in a game. Watch a game, most of the players are standing around most of the time. 7 moles in 90 minutes is really only 4 miles an hour. WALKING speed is 5 miles an hour.

2 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.

To those commenting on GOLF as the hardest, are you kidding me? Go to ESPN and look at what was rated the hardest sport. Boxing was the hardest and Golf was in the bottom 10 as the easiest. I golf and although it is difficult, it definitely is one of the easiest sport to do. You can take your time making a shot in complete silence compared to a field goal kicker making the last second field goal or a basketball ball player making free throws. You wearing Sunday Church clothes to compete and the only thing that looks sporty is the baseball cap. I must admit boxing is the toughest, can you imagine getting punched in your face and body. They must be in shape and no one will deny that you will get injured. But, one thing I noticed golfers who only golf are those who are not athletic. But, athletes who do golf are.

The only active thing about golf is the mental part. Yes you swing a metal pole and maybe have to walk a little but it's nowhere near as physically demanding as running or soccer or almost any other sport. Yes you do have to think a lot but you do the same in other sports and even running to keep yourself motivated. I don't think golf should be considered an actually physically active sport unless they make you run from hole to hole.

I've played it and it really is easy. I've seen kids in PE hit the golf balls 100 yards without any previous experience. We also do some putting, and that requires a little more skill but not much. You barley do anything! It requires barely any physical demand. You should try to play other sports before making ignorant remarks. Sure, your arms might get tired from swinging the club but at least soccer players run.

Golf honestly is easy. It's a sport that isn't very physically demanding as well anyone can pick up a club and hit a ball, though you may not hit it well the sport is quite easy. It really doesn't take conditioning you can buy a push cart for 50 bucks and no worries about getting tired. The sport does take a good chunk of change and to be quite honest that's what turns people away from the game.

3 Bowling

THIS "SPORT" IS A JOKE seriously I got bowling all the time with my friends and at least 3 out of the six of us get strikes... Its not that hard... You toss a ball down a big slippery alley and it goes twoards the pins... In my opion all you are doing is tossing a ball.. THIS "SPORT" IS ALL ABOUT LUCK

You're knocking pins down with a ball. Little kids play bowling, if a five year old can knock down a pin then you can too.

Bowling is easy that's why people of all ages can play. You don't have to have much physical strength to do it.

I don't think this sport is easy at all but I had to chose 1 sport.

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 see many people using fancy dribbling skills thinking they are good, but most are trash. Nevertheless though, it is really easy to understand and pick up.

Easy. You run, defend, and shoot. All you need is good aiming if you want to shoot or have mental ability to take the ball from the person.

Basketball is pretty easy. If you get touched it's foul. If you flop it's a foul. So basketball yeah it's one of the easier ones.

100 shots made a game. No other sport gives up that type of scoring. And it's a size sport, something you're born into not earned

5 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 played volleyball for a long time, I agree it is pretty easy. I'm a gymnast as well, and compared to the hard training that gymnasts endure volleyball was a nice break from it. It does take some skill though.

Although some aspects are hard in volleyball, and coaches can sometimes be merciless on practice. Volleyball is an easy sport to learn and play if you have the right amount of strength.

Easy to play as it requires no equipment and you can have fun just randomly hitting the ball.

Hard to play at a high level, takes a lot of fitness and a ton of athleticism.

Easily the easiest sport on the planet. Anyone and everyone can play it.
1. the ball DOES NOT fly 80 mph at your face... that's faster than most speed limits
2. Everyone knows what a pass, bump, serve, etc is...
So easy and simple

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

Ping pong is easy. It can even be a party game! I don't even see how its seen as a sport.

This is a good sport for fats like me.

Table Tennis. Just enjoy and play.

This is easy if you rallying but hard because it comes at you so fast

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

Baseball. What to say first. Well...90% of the game you just stand there in the field and do nothing or stand in the dugout eating chicken wings and drinking beer #Red Sox 2012 and if you are a pitcher you only play in every 1 in 5 games if that. Actual baseball players say in interviews that they just swing the bat and try to get lucky. Sports Science actually did a segment on this and they proved that baseball players can't know for sure where the ball is so they must just swing and try to get lucky. Baseball players claim they know where its going, but that is just to make themselves feel better. I have nothing else to say. Wait, actually yes I do. In any sport where the best players are morbidly obese it must be a joke. It is not a coincidence that the only other sport where this is true is sumo wrestling

In baseball when you are in the field most of the time you are just standing there. And when you are batting you only get to hit like 4 times. So most of the time you just sit in the bench watching. And you can be extremely Un athletic and play 1st back or catcher and still do well. I respect the game and it can sometimes be fun to watch. But is is just so boring to play and you do like nothing.

Soccer/football number one? HA!
Let's put this into a better perspective.
Let's say that we are determining which sport is easiest based on professional play.
Soccer, forget it. No way in hell 5% of the population could run 90 minutes the way any Barcelona player can.
Tetherball, I don't know, pretty easy, but Baseball is still easier.
Basketball, no way in hell you could play defense like Kobe, Lebron or Dwight. You'd get trashed and offense? Forget about shooting, you're gonna get blocked. Once they play D on you, you'd probably get it stripped.
Golf? That sport is really hard, maybe not energy wise, but skillwise, harder than anything.
Tennis, way harder than you think.

Now baseball.
Can you stand there? Yes.
Can you swing a bat and hope to get lucky? Yes.
Can you sit in the dugout most of the game? Yes.
Can you stand in the outfield and catch a ball with more ease than trying to score on Goalkeepers or make a layup on a 7 footer (2.2 ...more

90 percent of the game you are just standing there and doing nothing, this sport requires no athleticism what so ever. Look at soccer players, they run 7 miles on average and the mental state they need to be in is insane. Baseball is the worst sport ever and soccer is the best sport ever

8 Curling

You throw a rock across ice. I see 6 year olds do it, I see 60 year olds do it. No athleticism required, no difficult rules, no strategy involved. Just slide a rock. I don't know why this isn't #1. After watching it the first time, I thought it was a joke, after watching multiple games over the last few years I still think it's a joke

This is quite easy. Looking at it, it seems all it is is an easier version of skeeball. Roll, and hope for the best.

Basketball and soccer above curling, what a joke!

Never heard of it? Like what even?

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

Tennis depends on your skill level. If you just pancake volleys and serves, and then just push back shots at the service line, sure, I guess that's tennis. But, try playing at UTR 16 or Federer and I doubt tennis is easy.

Tennis is the stupidest sport ever and you don't even need athletic ability, you literally just hit the ball to the other side so...

Serve. Hit the ball over the net. Don't get out of bounds.

Hit the ball between the lines.

10 Tetherball

A pole in the middle, two players on each side, and a ball hanging from the top of the pole... the only objective is to hit the ball to the opposing side

May be the easiest "sport"... But to me its definitely the funnest haha

Is it even considered a sporth though?

Is this even a sport? I thought it was a simple playground game.

You hit the ball and it swings around a pole... Pretty simple...

The Contenders
11 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..

Stand with one foot in front of the other and punch... That's pretty much it

Just punch people in the face?

So easy! Could do it in my sleep

Kick his ass and it's over.

12 Competitive Eating

Voting this just because its on here although I don't think of it as a sport. Every sport has its challenges and it is unfair to rank one as the "easiest" in my opinion

Ok. So y'all think I should play competitive eating and become fat! Yeah right!

Only fat people are good

This is kind of silly

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

Ok I'm a swimmer and I totally agree with this! I even have a shirt that says " if swimming were easy they'd call it football" sure it may be dangerous getting hit and stuff but really? It's not that hard! My Best friend does football and swimming and he even says swimming is a million times harder! Besides at games you sit on the side line half the time and don't even play. And when. You are on the field you're not guaranteed to be running. So what I'm saying here is that football is easy.

Football is hard to coach, and is hard on your body, but it is probably one of the easiest sports to pick up because of how specialized it is. Every player on the football field is assigned one job (with the exception of the TE and FB who must both Run/Catch and block). If you only have one thing to do it is much easier than having multiple things to do. Also because it is a team sport and so specialized their is a spot for everyone on the field. If you can throw: QB, if you are athletic: RB, DB, WR, if you are big: OL, DL. So anyone can be apart of it and it doesn't necessarily take a large skill set to be good.

This is the easiest sport! I am a true gymnast and I think that if I tried football I would be bruised. If a football player tried gymnastics they would be well... Killed.. Liturly.. Killed have you seen someone a t gymnastics fdo a bounce flyaway and land on there neck/head And she isn't moving at all

You play for 15 seconds then rest for three minutes, you run, you fall down, too repetitive. There are more commercials than play time! 1 word summary of American football is beer

14 Swimming

Swim team is very fun

Very easy, just swim

Its bare boring it wastes all your time the water is bare cold and no one likes it

15 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".

Very very easy. After one round you'll completely understand the game and be a pro. It's one of my favorites. Really addicting and super fun, also very easy to understand.

To me this sport is hard. But because I'm not fast is the reason why. Well if I get fast it would be as easy as ABC!

Badminton is easy, just have to swing the racket to the ball, there you go... Badminton

I love Badminton also

16 Netball

Sounds really easy... Try to say it is harder than baseball, basketball, gymnastics, or cheer (al star cheer).

It is fun and easy to pick up you can play on a recreational basis or play competitive like myself!

It's just a watered down version of basketball.

17 Walking

Okay, even a toddler can do this "sport". Please, this shouldn't even be a part of this controversy.

So you're saying when I walk everyday I am doing a sport? This is not a sport.

They actually do have competitive walking.

What the hell? Walking is harder then soccer?

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

Yeah totally one of the most easy sports I don't see equestrian there!

Gymnastics does not require the same amount of skill as basketball

19 Competitive Cheerleading

Cheerleader is super easy... And boring

Dude all you do is chant at each other...

Cheerleading is so easy

20 Horse Riding

You might think it's hard but really? It's hard for the horse. All you're doing is sitting on it and trying not to hurt it's back. It might require some skill but this is a list of the easiest sports and this is significantly easier than the rest.

21 Field Hockey
22 Cross-Country

All it takes is stamina, no hand-eye coordination or strength needed. Other sports have stuff that involves hand-eye coordination and strength, like football, lacrosse, soccer, etc.

This is as much as a sport as competitive eating, which its not.

All you have to do is run. It is very easy.

Running is easy

23 Auto Racing

Really, I get that this is hard. It takes a lot of skill and bravery and all that, but is it really a sport? It takes literally NO athleticism AT ALL and even golf takes more mentality than this. Seriously, I can't see why this is a sport.

Is this even a sport?

24 Softball

Oh my, I've played this sport for a very long time and finally I decided to quit after high school. Thankfully I decided to start rowing and let me tell you our warm up for rowing alone was harder than anything I've ever done playing softball. Honestly this sport doesn't require much physical activity at all but I will say I've gotten hurt quite a lot by the ball but it wasn't anything that couldn't be fixed. However, softball does require a lot of patience and time dedicated to succeed but it's not really that hard to be honest.

I fell think that softball is the most easiest in the world is so easy that every body thinks its hard and it's so easy because it's so easy.

25 Kickball

This is so easy I only played this with my friends in elementary school it's easier than baseball because your using your feet and it's not coming at you fast I don't thin I have missed kicking the ball 2 times and the time I missed it I was in 1rest grade!

Even easier baseball
