Top 10 Sports in the Philippines

The Top Ten
1 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

Basketball is my sport because it gives me joy and it is more safe "not to 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 about it.

My friends play this and they won their tournament yesterday.

2 Football

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!

Everyone should play football. Accept it; height matters, basketball is only for tall people. Football doesn't require height, its pure skill. It is fun and we Filipinos have the potential to be known for Football.

I just love football. It's really fun to watch and to. See the ball flying ahead of the players like it's got feathers...

The most favorite sport in the world, why won't make it the most popular here in the philippines?

3 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".

Fun! 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

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

Badminton is my daughter's favorite sport, badminton is good for moving your body

4 Sepak Takraw

Exiting Sport using feet, very unique and fun to watch!

5 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

It is exiting sport and an entertainment! To the filipino fans few filipino may have played it since it is a dangerous sport but it has produce strong filipino international champions... Such as Pancho Villa, Flash Elorde, Gerry PeƱalosa, Manny Pacquaio, Nonito Donaire and newly etc...

I love the way they punch right!

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

We must try this awesome sport. Baseball is very fun. We must try other sport.

We became a powerhouse team in a last decades and this is a famous sport before basketball comes

Its Amazing game for me

7 Billiards

This is my sport

8 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 never knew volleyball was fun until I actually played it. Lets just say that I got hooked onto volleyball after playing it once.

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.

Fast-paced. Thrilling. And the Ateneo Lady Eagles made this sport explode in the casual sports enthusiasts'consciousness.

I love spiking and blocking. I like badminton too because of smashing but my favorite is Volleyball

9 Bowling
10 Taekwondo

I am a 11 year old filipino and have been playing taekwondo for 3 years now. I have joined many tournaments in different schools and in the U.S. I have learned a'lot in taekwondo it taught me discipline,alertness,strength and self defense!

If someone is fighting you, you can defend your self. Not getting bullied or hurt.

My sports are taekwondo... we learn discipline and self defense!

I think it's great!
