Top 10 Sports in the Philippines
I am very sure that basketball is the best sport in the Philippines. Nobody in the Philippines doesn't know this sport. All of the kids, adults, and senior citizens love it too! And basketball should be the greatest sport of all time. Oh! Even football players here play basketball too! Indeed, it is the greatest sport in the Philippines.
Basketball is my sport because it gives me joy, and it is "not too safe," but it is safer than soccer or American football or boxing for kids like me.
It rocks! And we have enough knowledge about this sport, so everyone can relate to it.
I was born and raised in the USA, but I am a pure Filipino. I excelled in basketball through athleticism, 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!
Fun! The Philippines doesn't have enough open spaces for football/soccer. They need to start playing indoors like badminton, volleyball, or basketball. They can even play futsal!
I love to play Badminton with my brother. It helps me concentrate more after playing it.
Badminton is my daughter's favorite sport. Badminton is good for moving your body.
Exciting sport using feet, very unique and fun to watch!
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.
It is an exciting sport and entertainment! To the Filipino fans, few Filipinos may have played it since it is a dangerous sport, but it has produced strong Filipino international champions... Such as Pancho Villa, Flash Elorde, Gerry Peñalosa, Manny Pacquiao, Nonito Donaire, and newly etc...
I love the way they punch, right!
We became a powerhouse team in the last decades, and this is a famous sport before basketball comes.
We must try this awesome sport. Baseball is very fun. We must try another sport.
It's an amazing game for me.
This is my sport.
I never knew volleyball was fun until I actually played it. Let's just say that I got hooked onto volleyball after playing it once.
Fast-paced. Thrilling. And the Ateneo Lady Eagles made this sport explode in the casual sports enthusiasts' consciousness.
It's one of the top sports in the Philippines. Every Ateneo vs. La Salle Match, it fills up the venue. Why no. 7? It should be no. 2.
If someone is fighting you, you can defend yourself. Not getting bullied or hurt.
My sports are taekwondo... we learn discipline and self-defense!
I think it's great!
Fully sick, bro.
Everyone loves to hit balls.
Cricket is the best game ever, so get out of here if you think it's bad!
There are probably more bikers than badminton players.
It is fun to swim.
Hockey is the best.
