The Top Ten
Soccer is the best sport ever. For all of you people who say its easy or boring or any of that crap, it's because you've never played competitively. We do a lot of fitness training. We have practice 6 days a week. It's not like hockey where you get a sub every 45 seconds. Our games are 90 minutes and sometimes you don't get a single sub. You have to be running hard for a full 90 minutes. You want to call us weak now? And it is a contact sport. For those of you who say its not, you don't know anything about the game. I'm on the best team in my state and it is so much fun. It requires a ton of endurance, strength, individual skills, and teamwork. It's not a game where you score every 30 seconds because you actually have to work hard to score.
Soccer is the best sport, because there are moves that you can learn to get past a player. There are all sorts of related sports to soccer (Street soccer, Basketball, and believe it or not its American Football. Also those tricks and skills take so much practice and time just to go outside and play what you love which is soccer. When you play soccer and you want to step up your game and decide to join a team that team will give you money for the year as long as you well for you team you earn more and more money. Where ever you are Spain, Germany, United States, Italia, England, and more you might be asked to play for their national team to see who is the best and that to any soccer player who is in a average team is an honer to play for your country. And for all of you people who say its boring or any of that stuff is because you've never played it or you've never even touched a soccer ball before us boys/girls play so much soccer that we don't even have time to go anywhere or do ...more
Soccer is a really good exercise sport. So, it's super!
Soccer is the best sport of all time. It brings a different magic to the feild, players and especially the fans. The joy you get when your team wins is impossible to explain. You cry when your team loses but you cry even more when your team wins. It requires a lot of endurance, speed, strength,mentality,confidence,team spirit and sportsmanship. Everyone can play it- slim people (neymar),short people (Messi) unlike rugby or basketball.V 530 Comments
I used to be a striker of my schools soccer team, I was really good at soccer, and I scored at least 5 points per game. Then one day, I watched a video on YouTube called "Michael Jordan - I Believe I Can Fly", that video showed me clips of Michael Jordan playing basketball. Michael Jordan showed me the beauty of basketball and he made so many people happy because of his skills. I want to be like MJ. He inspired me to play basketball. Now, I'm the star shooting guard of my schools basketball team who scores 25 points per game and has 7 assists per game. Go watch the video mentioned in this story, so you will be inspired. Basketball
"5 points", are you kidding? Whoever plays football and calls it points, not goal, is a retard
Back in 9th grade, I was the best at basketball. I got so many girls after me, but in 10th grade, I took a break. Or at least I thought it would be a break. I didn't play basketball after that. I was still known for being the best until 11th grade, when some other guy stole my thunder, but I really couldn't care less. I love this sport, and sometimes I play it with my friends. 12th grade came by and no one saw me as the best anymore. I really felt like I could have gone to be in the NBA. I'm serious. I think I had some record in the school of most dunks, which was 12. I participated in a lot of basketball themed events. I was called "Michael Jordan", and "Quick Hoop", and most of all, "The Best Basketball Player Ever". I feel like Michael Jordan takes that last nickname, but I think I deserved the other two. I felt really cool back then, but now I'm in my second year of college, and I don't really play basketball anymore. All of my friends still think that I should get back into it, ...more
Basketball is just the best basketball ball shoes are beautiful and it's a fun but hard sport because you have to learn how to dribble and shoot, and in my opinion I think dribbling is more important then shooting because then you can cross people over for an easy pass or point
BY FAR the best sport. It should be n.1, unlike soccer, which shouldn't even be on this list. Basketball is the greatest game on Earth. High scoring, many different spectacular ways to score (Dunks, 3-pointers, lay-ups, jump shots, alley oops), just the perfect sport.V 219 Comments
You never said anything about American football and why it's good all you said was that soccer sucks. I am from America, but I think that soccer requires a lot more endurance and ability to think because you have to play for 90 minutes and make the play as you go, instead of having a pre-made plan. Don't get me wrong, I like American football too, but you can't go around saying that people who like soccer are stupid, because everyone has their own opinion and everyone's opinion matters.
Actually no one's opinion matters since none of them are facts. - PeeledBanana
In grade 9 I was selected for team canada as one of the best defensive tackles in the game, at 6'4" 320 lbs I was a destroyer. Then came the concussions, after taking grade 10 off and having a strong grade 11 year making the league all star team as the only grade 11. I tried for team Ontario to try and enter the elite level again, my lack of commitment combined with injuries were my downfall as I met people slightly better than me, I didn't make the team and eventually took up basketball, I'm in college 230 lbs now 6'4" and I hope to make the team next year after being cut this year. How the mighty have fallen, football is not an easy sport you must stay committed to remain the best.
I love football because you get to play real people and it gives you a real experience on how to play other people. I would vote for this as well because you can also play league matches like me! This is the greatest list of all time. I support chelsea. Wow - reece
I LOVE FOOTBALL AND STEELERS!V 183 Comments
I chose baseball because it is my favorite, but I'll not argue with anyone's opinion because this list is a matter of personal preference. I will say that soccer's worldwide popularity is a weak argument for the sport. It gained popularity worldwide because it is cheap to play, requiring only something to use as a ball, and extremely easy to learn on the most fundamental level. Don't get me wrong, I know that playing soccer at a high level requires an enormous amount of skill and knowledge, but the basis of the game could not be easier; kick the ball through the goal. Any group of poor kids who has ever 5 minutes of the game, can immediately get something to use as a ball and start a rudimentary game. Basketball is almost like that, but has the disadvantage of needing a ball that bounces and way to hang a goal.
Baseball is my favorite sport. I understand that soccer is a worldwide played sport but that does not mean every single player actually has a love for the game. I love baseball simply because it's complicated and it is probably the biggest challenge. You need every aspect of your body to play baseball. In soccer if you break your finger you can still play most if not all positions because you only need your two legs. The only reason why people say you cannot play soccer if your finger is broken is simply because the doctor said to. Baseball players are so much more athletic than soccer and basketball players (didn't say football because those guys are huge). " If you take a baseball player and put him in any other sport he will compete, but if you take any other athlete and throw them an MLB average of 95 mph fastball they won't even touch it."
Baseball is the best sport ever. It is the national pastime of America and requires skill. For all you soccer fans here's a question; kicking a ball around or hitting a 80,90 or even 100mph pitch with a piece of wood. Also it requires skill to make diving and/or jumping catches. Baseball requires more skill than soccer and many other sports. It is also just better than ANY other sport
BASEBALL IS #1 BABY, DILLY-DILLY!V 153 Comments
Soccer is only well liked because everyone can afford to play it. It's the most accessible sport. Hockey may not have that accessibility, but it is still a very international sport nonetheless. That said, hockey requires everything soccer requires: endurance, patience and accuracy. What hockey has that soccer does not is physicality and far more team work. And it is all done on skates. You have to be in another league athletically to be a hockey player.
Trust me have you seen hockey tickets? They're more than 500. Also soccer is just running while hockey is on skates. That takes a lot more skill in my opinion. And yes, they do need endurance, because their coaches make them skate the whole time in practice, and not just during their playing time. I agree it's not as popular but does that make it a lesser sport? It's pretty popular in the western side over here. And yes, hockey players do legitimately get hurt more often than soccer players do. I'm sorry about your injury, but hockey players face that every day. Have you seen the goalie who got his throat cut open by a skate? Nasty stuff. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter
Imagine you are the shooter and the goalie is like 6'4 and takes up a lot of the net and you have a 3 by 1 inch puck and you have like just enough room to put it in 3 inch by 1 inch in the uprights or right beneath the leg pad and in soccer you have like 7 square feet to shoot at and you can go low or upper 90 but hockey it is one or the other and hockey you have to be conditioned a lot more because you have 20lbs. of extra weight soccer you might have shinguards but those weigh almost nothing soccer you can get a penalty by mistiming a slide tackle but hockey you can check someone and nothing will happen unless you check them from behind then you might get ejected for the rest of that game and the next people have been paralyzed playing hockey. And you could be on a break away the next moment you are laying on the ground with a huge welt on your shoulder that hurts very bad but the next day you have to play because you are very good and there is only a limited amount of lines usually ...more
Hockey is one of the few sports that encompasses every aspect of what makes a sport great: speed, teamwork, finesse, skill, and of course CONTACT! The amount of skill and finesse in hockey is only rivaled by soccer, but soccer is missing contact which I think is a major reason why it's should be put at number 2. Basketball is missing contact as well. Who wants to which a bunch of grown ass men flop to get fowls all the time? Not me. Baseball is missing contact as well but the teamwork and skill in baseball is what makes it such a fun sport. Ice hockey is the best sport ever. Hands down in my opinion.
Hockey is amazingly fun, you get to do drills and have fun on the ice, all the players are also amazingly tough. I remember when Jimmy Vesey on the New York Rangers got hit by an blade on Mark Stone on the Senators. His whole face was bleeding and he was back in the game in two mins. Things like that don't usually happen though. Hockey requires more safety pads than any other sports and standings are always close so each and every game counts. It's a wonderful sport! I'm a soccer player too but when you play Soccer, sometimes you don't get the ball until five minutes have past. It has much more teamwork and responsibility. When you fall down, you get right back up. When your losing, it doesn't matter, it's all for fun! I take it pretty seriously but even if my team, the New York Rangers lose I still enjoy staying up to watch the game. Ice hockey is just a wonderful sport. And I mean it!V 133 Comments
I LOVE TENNIS! I've been playing tennis since I was 5, and now I'm 13. Tennis is a great sport to play. You need arm strength, good footwork, metal skills, like where to hit the ball to. People think that it's just hitting a ball, which it is, but in order to be good at it, you need to swing that racket like your life depends on it. Things like dancing, lets be honest, sorry to those who disagree, but it isn't a sport. It does take skill, but I don't see dancing competitions on ESPN, my sis is a dancer, but I haven't seen a competition yet! Dancing, it is hard, but be honest with yourself, it isn't a sport. Another sport I like is swimming. I'm on the swim team, and I can say that swimming gets you in good shape, and you'll sweat, but you always have cool water surrounding you! I love swimming, tennis, football, basketball, softball, volleyball, and much more. Just not dance cheer and gymnastics
Tennis isn't just hard but its is also a mental sport not just physical. You have to learn your back hand and forehand and how to use them properly and how to defeat the other player with those strokes. And you have to learn volley doubles and singles not just the game there's more to it then you think tennis should be the number one sport hands down cause its both physical and mental compared to all these other sports!
Trust me tennis will be the most popular sports after ten year. More and more people play tennis and more and more people watch tennis. The reason that tennis is a good sport is that it can play two on two. If you play team sport, no matter how good you are, if your team is bad you can never win. Tennis also practise your thinking skill because you always need to think where you hit the next ball. Many people think that tennis is a stupid game which two people just hit the ball this way and that way. Tennis practise your strength, agility and speed. Tennis will be the most popular sport after ten years.
I absolutely love watching this spectacular sport being played, just splendid. I have been playing this since 1899 (my date of birth)!
It is just simply exquisite and elegant, iam absolutely hooked! watching old people make grunting noises and jumping like fish out of water. oh and don't get me started on Andy murry!
1.6 Billion people follow cricket.
It is great game and soon cricket leagues like IPL would own EPL and Other leagues of soccer, - herambchaaskar
Cricket is for the sophisticated fans of the future! It might even over take soccer in the years to come!
Football is the best game to play but only when you play it
It gets boring when you watch others playing it..
But cricket is the most intresting game of all time
You can watch it whole day and still you wont get bored
And with this new t20 format the game is reduced to 3 hrs
Which is far better then football/soccer..
Its just that football is too overrated
AND YOU WOULD DEFINITELY VOTE FOR IT.. - abby221
Now 2.1 billion people follow cricket, and this is 2nd most popular game in the world(1st is football the real football;)
If you don't believe me than u can see in it Google.
This is a classic game and it's not for dumb and idiot people
As much as the other sports are more hardcore, but I believe that swimming should be in the top 5 at least. It does require the same things that other sports do except its in the water! It also has no sports-related injuries (at least not that severe anyways). Unlike other sports, you can keep swimming for as long as you live. In dryland, we do pretty much what every other athlete does to keep in shape and build that muscle to push that water away. This is why swimming is the best and I think should be #1!
I was expected swimming to be like 40th! But to my pleasant surprise it's 8th! That just shows how much this sport has grown so proud of what we have done with it and I highly encourage anyone who is reading this to start swimming and keep expanding the sport until and after it is 1 on this list by 100% of the vote! It's a great sport it keeps you in great shape and you have a lot of fun competing! Swim.
Swimming stretches every muscle in your body, and all of your body is working hard when you swim. It's a sport you can grow old doing. When you're 70 you won't be playing soccer. Knowing how to swim can save you from life-threatening situations such as a riptide, tsunami, flood, etc. Swimming has been my passion since I was 2, and this is why swimming is the best sport ever.
Gosh, swimming is incredibly hard. The practices tax your body, and the threat of not doing your best at a meet is a horrendous feeling. That may be with all sports, but in swim
I feel it is even worse. Furthermore, let's say you decide to skip practice. In no other sport do you come back after two days and be feel, as wellas actuallt swim slow. I just finished my regional meet, and took two easy days. I came back monday, and I could barely make 10 100's on the 1:10, which is an intermediate interval. So yeah, swimming is hard.
Golf is less a sport and more of a "Let's see how long it takes old white guys with erectile dysfunction to hit a tiny ball into a slightly larger hole" activity.
All you people commenting on this "golf is dumb it's stupid it's for old people barely any exercise u haven't even tried the sport. Don't Just say you hate something without trying it. Golf is just for old white guys. That's just a stupid thing to say. I'm a 12 year old girl u would Expect me like to shopping, fashion, and social media but guess what I spend most of summer golfing. Golf is a sport. I find you people to go by stereotypes. It's just adults that play golf I'm On golf is team for kids and we play different teams in golf. Don't just comment negative things about a sport when u actually haven't tried a sport. I am not gonna comment anything about lacrosse cause I have never tried the sport that would be dumb of me
Golf takes a lot more skill than you would think. And I'll admit it sucks to watch but to play it's the best thing ever.

Did lots of sports at once in till I started boxing, hands down the most epic thrill you get when earn your goal of becoming the person you want too be. As boring the training is, it still comes in handy for fighting in matches. It is also helpful for your fitness!
Boxing should be on top, every time I watch it especially watching fights of pacquiao and other filipinos it gives me thrill
Boxing gives you the chance to be who you want to be. Its also a great way to release anger and things you've been holding on to. And on top of that it keeps you in shape. By far my favorite sport.
Greatest individual sport for sure. Deserves to be at least #3 on this list.V 32 Comments
Running is one of the best sports ever in my opinion. It's teaches endurance, will, speed, and power. I have been running cross country for four years and track for two. Before I did many other sports but when I started cross country it changed my life. I have cystic fibrosis and that has not stopped me because running has taught me to keep fighting till you cross the finish line and that finish line is still far away but when I get there I will remember what got me there
Track and field is such a cool sport. Boys running around a track, with the sunset on their heads---I think wow. Track is such a cool sport. I love it because it's so easy to do, but so hard to do right and fast. I mean, you try sprinting a 400. You look at everyone's face when their finished, they are done, tired, and look terrible. But inside, it feels great to cross that finish line. That's hard work. That's running through rain when the raindrops feel like bullets, that's training in the heat of summer. Track is so cool guys, just trust me.
If you learn running, you can survive. I mean what if a grizzly bear comes out of nowhere and there is a tree a mile away? You might think "Kill the grizzly! " but no. Do you think a kid who doesn't fight and loves nature going to do it? No. Grizzly bears can't climb. The best way is: RUN! That's why I recommend you to try your best in running.
Besides that, how many sports include running? Soccer, basketball, football, baseball, tennis, kickball even sports like ice hockey and dodge ball! This sport is like what you would enjoy with your favorite sport (not swimming)!
I'm sorry, I found this funny because 1) Bears can climb, you would know that if you passed second grade and 2) No matter how much you run, how fast you are, how frequently you work out, a human being will never be able to outrun a grizzly bear. Even if you were the fastest sprinter in the world, if you had to try to outrun a bear for a mile, you would literally die. - SassyEquine

I say Lacrosse is the greatest sport in the world. To play Lacrosse you need Endurance, Agility, Speed, and Muscle. You can't torque anyone in Soccer or Tennis or Swimming. Soccer players and Tennis players couldn't take a cross check to the throat by a Steel pole. Lacrosse was created by Native Americans the toughest people to ever walk the earth.
Fast paced and entertaining. I can't believe that boring sports like baseball and soccer are higher than this. Big hits, hard shots, very fast players. All you need to do is watch one game and you will be hooked. One day it will grow and be the biggest sport in the world.
This should be number 1 this is a very cool and hard sport how about all of you people that voted for soccer look at the game on T.V. it is the most boring sport I've ever seen then watch lacrosse now that is a sport that I can sit through a game watching
Screw baseballV 42 Comments
I'm honestly surprised it's even at 15. While I think it is the greatest, unfortunately it's not played worldwide and not even as big as Aussie Rules Football in Australia. But forget all that, it is THE BEST! A lot more physical than Gridiron as it's a lot more constant. League doesn't take a break after every tackle, it's way more physically demanding than that. Not to mention the onfield battles certain players develope against each other. It's a great sight to see 2 massive front rowers constantly trying to find each other and put big hits on the other. - Boydy_23
Hands down my favourite sport in the world and definitely the best. I play rugby league and it is absolutely brilliant! Hard tackles, people cheering, conversions, great runs and many more things get me pumped. and I'm only 12. it is a physically demanding sport but is also a great experience. I'm very determined to become a professional rugby league player and I live, eat, and sleep rugby league.
Easily one of the best sports in the world and I believe it should be at least in the top 10. Similar to Baseball in America it isn't world renowned as it is mostly only played in the south parts of the world but is great fun to play and watch.
Rugby league shod be the best sport in the world.V 32 Comments
Anybody who says wrestling is fake is just being idiotic. Its not fake it's "predetermined". All those grapple's you see is being performed using ones strength its not like they are hooked up by cable's being lifted up by other people. It's a brutal sport but its also great entertainment too with characters that are larger than life. And also anybody who says that wrestling isn't brutal just needs to go look up different injuries that have occurred during wrestling match's. Broken Necks, Concussions, Torn Quads, Broken Legs, Heart Attacks. That is how punishing this sport can be.
Oh come on WWE is better than football basketball and soccer. Wrestling is just you, by your self trying your hardest to hit the 1 2 3 pin-fall and win. Watching Wrestling like WWE, tna, nxt, roh etc is fun. Makes you get up of your seat. Different kind of feuds going on and building up there experience and becoming the top player. Football basketball etc so boring the same thing to feuds just the same so boring but wrestling its just different feuds and choose your top player. I love WWE even thought its fake it's a sport.
THIS IS NOT WWE WRESTLING! Wrestling deserves to be up there, individual sports are a challenge of their own. Unlike team sports, THERE's NOWHERE TO HIDE, once you step out on the mat it's you and one other person and it will show how much you've put into it. Anybody can be a wrestler, we come in all shapes and sizes, so it gives opportunity to everybody and hard work will be the difference, not size. - DrNick

I play volleyball on the 13s Fatchmo team; trust me, volleyball is not easy but it's a lot of fun and over all my favorite sport. Volleyball should definitely be in the top ten! We can bump, hit, serve, dig, and volleyball includes a lot of hustling but its worth it. No running in volleyball? When was the last time you ran ten feet in 1 second, threw yourself on the ground, and got back in position all in 3 seconds?! I'll quit competing when my heart stops beating. A lot of us miss 100% of the shots we don't take.
This should be higher. Volleyball is fun sport that everyone can play anywhere like in a gym or at the beach. Everyone saying it's easy or boring need to start playing. Volleyball is a hard and competitive sport. You have to learn how to hit, pass, set, serve, block, and move your feet just to hit the ball. So what. I'm saying is, volleyball isn't easy.
Volleyball is the best! Once you start making progress, you'll love it. In volleyball, a lot more pressure and responsibility lies on each individual player. If you make one mistake, the whole game stops. And that's what makes it so much fun! It's a physical and mental game at the same time
I love volleyball, and I think it should be top 10 sports because what type of sport is about a mixture of sports, I know people may say its hard or boring but I think its time for us to be optimisticV 40 Comments

Gymnastics is very difficult and we train for 25 or more hours by the age of 6 or 7 and we lots of hard conditioning but it is truly a great sport. I've done it for 12 years and I'm 14 years old. It has taught me so many skills other than flips.
Gymnastics has also taught me mental skills like getting over mental blocks and having courage. Also you have to balance practice with schoolwork so gymnastics has also taught me time management.
I also made great friends and have had many fun experiences hosting meets and hangin out with my gym friends.
Watching gymnastics is also very exciting because each individuial has her own routine.
I am a competitive gymnast, every day after practice I come home limp and tired, a lot of times I sprain my ankle. The only reason I haven't dropped out is because first, its fun, and second, its a challenge. I freak out when I go on the beam, and I am far from being gabby douglas, but gymnastics is my passion. And I will never, ever quit, even when it gets overwhelming and fustrating, I know I have people cheering me on, and I love it!
Gymnastics is the by far greatest, hardest, and most fun sport in the world! I mean yes, you could kill yourself doing it but if you learn correct you can accomplish a lot! I mean even though it is the hardest sport in the world it doesn't mean JUST GIVE UP it means KEEP TRYING! I mean all those people out there that are gymnast I bet you agree with me to! Like my post if you agree with me! If you don't agree I will kick your a**! Just kidding! But I will not like you EVER
Gymnastics is the greatest sport because has 7 disciplines which are amazing in their own right.V 70 Comments
I can't think of any other sport in the world were a person of any body type or skill set has a place somewhere in a the team. That and every part of the game is a contested. This may sound a little funny for non rugby people but compare this to league were there is no contest for the ball after a tackle, no contest when the ball goes out of play and no contest at the scrum. Great mix of tactics, athleticism and heart. Also widely played internationally, love getting patriotic!
Rugby is way too underrated to be put outside of the top 20 sports in the world. It is played almost world wide but is not recognised by Americans due to their "version" being American football. Thus site is viewed by mainly Americans and with their great population their sports have taken up the top 10 spots... Ridiculous and an outrage
No other sport in the world can you hit people as hard and as many times as you want for 80 minutes straight. Even in American football you can get penalized for hitting somebody too hard. Greatest game ever invented.

Should be #1V 10 Comments
I love this sport so much. It should be #1. You can play it in your backyard easily or take lessons which usually don't cost much or don't cost anything at all. For a lot of people, it takes yeas to get to the intermediate level. I've done it for less than a month and now practice with beginners and intermediates. I love badminton
Some people might not like this but I just love this sport so much better than any other sports.
I've been playing this sport since I was 6, and it is really an unique sport because other people can't really play and you must have good hand-eye coordination
Badminton is easily the most fun sport, it takes the most skill to play, it doesn't get you too tired and you can play with friends and have fun. - ActionninjaTV 20 Comments
Kickball is so fun. Its just like baseball, but you use it with your foot.
The beauty of this game is overwhelming! Table Tennis is definitely my favourite sport, as it needs great mental strength and outstanding motivation skills. To play the game you need a highly committed mind set as well as a determined attitude! The precision of the game is excellent and it is a pleasure to not only play but to watch as well! I enjoy the adrenaline rush when I'm playing an opponent too! Its amazing, fantastic and everything a sport needs! I love Table Tennis and there comes no doubt to my mind that it deserves that number 1 spot!
Table Tennis is definitely my favourite sport. I've been playing for 7 months and there's so much more to it than people think. The speed and spin you can put on it is amazing. It's unique and at first it may seem like a basic rip-off of tennis but it's actually a completely different sport.

watchin true drivers race at 200mph to get back to 80mph in under 5 secs thats quite a fun thing to watch. now I know your gonna say thers no overtaking but in 2010 they changed it and shazam 5 people all could of won it in the last two races...
F1, drivers put their life on the line for our enjoyment. They have 200mph crashes and get into another car almost immediately, a footballer breaks a toe nail and has to take 3 months off. Footballers are wimps, F1 is a mans sport.
People... You have no idea how exciting this sport is. 2 hours full of speed and adrenalin? Formula 1 is your answer. - fnabilaghina

By far the best sport. Unlike footballers, cyclists don't care about money, they compete to win. Cyclists aren't violent thugs either and they don't cry when their little finger gets hurt.
Cycling should be so much higher. The amount of training and passion goes into winning a race like the Tour de France. 3 weeks of cycling. Can't see footballers playing matches for 3 hours a day for 3 weeks.
The best sport and should be way higher
Who doesn't love bouncing around!

The physicality and technicality of this sport are un rivaled. The incredible speed in which the sport is played at is amazing. It is a sport in which mental and physical fitness come into play. It is a worldwide game where teams from all continents play. A successful sport must be world wide. Not Grid iron which is only played in the US. No doubt this is the best sport on the planet
THE BEST SPORT EVER! It can be played on land, you don't need ice or water and it is super fun. Both men and woman can play and it requires skill, technique, and mental and physical strength. Field hockey is simply awesome. Get over it.
This sport definitely does not get the recognition that it deserves! Played by many, both men and women yet recognized but little to none.. What a shame.

It's not a sport it's a lifestyle. Lance Mountain (a pro skateboarder) says "Riding a skateboard doesn't make you a skater, being unable to stop riding a skateboard is what makes you a skater." It's the most independent activity because you make your own goals and you get to decide what you want to do with your skateboard. Whether it's dropping in on huge bowls or kickfliping 12 stairs you can do what you want, you just have to build your self to the top of those things.
Creative, free, and limitless. No other sports can match it.
it is the second best afl is the best its fun easy and at the same time hard - james001
Dude without skateboarding I don’t know what I would do in life, I mean come on it’s really fun and even when it is competitive it really isn’t just a couple of friends skating together and not arguing like all the other sports. Plus you can practically skate averywhere you go.V 9 Comments

It's so fun! It's thrilling and you can make it really easy or really hard yeah ASPEN GO ASPEN
Skiing! Is so fun I personally LOVE racing! Love it love it love it!
Love snow, it's expansive but great！V 3 Comments
Not a sport, quite bad, I think there is no skill, what?
Can someone catch my little fish.
Animal abuse right
I don't know
In the top 10, possibly top 5 most participated sports in the World. Young and old, male or female can compete on an equal footing and it takes both mental and physical skill.
My favorite sport to play, lots of mental focus and the best part is that you don't have to mess up your body like those people with too much testosterone do.
Absolutely amazing sport. Requires mental focus, willingness to react to changing lane conditions, and major dexterity.
I'm a bowler. It's a lot of fun. Great even for people who aren't athletic, like me. You do need some physical skill. Also, it uses math.V 6 Comments
Karate is one of the best sports in the world (at least in my opinion).
Karate is the absolute best I am a black belt now!
Karate is more than sport, it,s life.
Demnands both reaciton, power, eye of situation and flexibility and good technique
While it can be boring to watch (especially for those who are new to the sport) it is incredibly fun to do. The feeling of shooting an arrow in the center of the target never gets old. It's a perfectionist sport. An error of a few millimeters in your form can make you loose a few points.
I am on the archery team at my school. It is a sport that requires changes and adjusting with every shot. It is graceful and calm... most of the time. One kid on my team our coaches jacket! Don't worry she was not harmed.
I played archery back when my fifth grade class went, and while it takes some learning, nothing comes to the thrill of firing an arrow.
Archery is really cool,you really have to got a powerful mind for archery!V 2 Comments
I love mini golf

It's got the speed of basketball, the skill of soccer, the toughness of ice hockey/rugby, the physicality of boxing it's high scoring and consistently draws 50/60/70/80/90 even 100,000 people to games. The players have to perfectly balance their aerobic capacity, raw strength, skill, finesse, vision, awareness and mental capacity.
If it was played/known anywhere outside Melbourne, it would surely become the greatest game on earth.
by far one of the most roughest games on earth. fast paced and you need a lot of skill to play with the AFL... Should be top 5 easily - Stewie
The fans make it even better, though I expect this is the same with most sports. Where else can you find the same collective joy in a bunch of people than in the 2013 finals where Hawthorn beat Geelong for the first time in 5 years? The tears of happiness and relief of the Hawthorn fans faces, pure happiness. GO THOSE HAWKERS!
Non stop action and excitement, great skills and tactics on display. If it was a world sport it would be top 5 easyV 36 Comments
You think NASCAR isn't a sport? Sure, it takes less physical ability than soccer, or baseball, but let me tell you this: racing at 200 MPH with cars inches away from yours isn't an easy thing to do. One wrong move and your car could end up obliterated. Drivers have to have good vision to see open opportunities, and get through crashes. Yes, they even have to work out, so they can move the wheel with ease. They have to be good multi-taskers, having to shift gears every few seconds, while still alternating between gas and brake, and moving the steering wheel quickly. They have to know a lot of things about the car that they drive, and how it handles. Also, the people in the garage and pits have to know a lot about the car. If the car is too loose, it will wobble sometimes on turns, losing you time and speed, and sometimes potentially losing the race for you, or making you crash. If it is too tight, you will have to brake more on turns. The pit crew have to change lugnuts, put in fuel, ...more - huskie44
One of the most underrated sports. There is an endless amount of math that is required to succeed in it. All sports are sports you should use your brain in, but NASCAR takes a lot of brain power. You have to know how to get a pit stop right, how fast you're going on the track so you can defend and gain positions, and how long you can go without pitting to win a race. Also in soccer, baseball, football, and basketball, you can recover from your mistakes. But in NASCAR, if you make a mistake, you're screwed. So guys, give NASCAR some more love. - greatesttop10s
People say racing isn't a sport it annoys me a lot. Its more then just going around in circles making 2 left turns one wrong move and you could be dead. it takes a lot of strategy you have to know how you cart/car is set up and you have to know how to pass block and so much more and if you don't have a good vehicle then your totally screwed so do NOT tell me racing isn't a sport because I do race and I know all this.
Okay, I know this is hard and very deadly, but it takes literally no athleticism. A sport is something that is both physically and mentally challenging and driving takes no muscle. Not a sport. - SassyEquineV 6 Comments
One of the most popular indoor sports in Europe and northern Africa. And is also one of the most underrated sports.
Genuinely dynamic and thrilling game. You watch the match in great emotions from the first to the last minute. Players need to be strong, fast, flexible and inventive. 34th position on the list? I agree with the statement that this is very, very underrated sport
Needed to be invented
I love this sportV 4 Comments
Snowboarding is really fun to watch and I know it's fun to do but I can't do it very well plus I know some good snowboarders and have cousins who like snowboarding and that makes it so much more cool. - katelyn
I've done snowboarding before and not only is it fun but is the only one on this list (apart from swimming and running) that can be used In the real world. It also looks awesome
Snowboarding rocks in UT and you can do it in many different mountains
A very beautiful culture, as well as a lifestyle.V 3 Comments
WHY ISN'T HORSEBACK RIDING TOP 20?! I've been riding since 3rd grade and loved it. This is the hardest sport of all. You need will, patience, LOTS of leg strength, and MORE! You're basically getting a gigantic animal to submit to you, and carry you on. For those that say that this isn't a hard sport, try galloping towards a three-foot tall post with just your feet keeping you on a huge prey animal! You also need to be able to multitask double-time, posting, managing reigns, looking to see where you're going, listening to coach's directions, making sure reigns are at correct length. Also, you need a lot of leg strength to do this sport well, like posting, for example, is extremely tiring. Sure, the horse is doing lots of work, but so are YOU. Why isn't this sport popular, I'll never know. It's truly amazing to watch, and much more experience for yourself. Most people are scared only because of the costs associated (half-chaps, paddock boots, helmet, breeches, gloves, etc.) Please PLAY ...more
HOW IS THIS NUMBER 82! Horse back riding is the best sport on earth. Riding is behind. Speed walking. WHAT ON EARTH IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE. horse back riding lets you be free especially when your jumping. I don't know what sport you people play but I ride horses and trust me it is the best. I love it so will you
There is nothing on earth that is greater than the bond you can have with your horse. There is no love greater than the love that a horse can give and there's a reason why riding is literally a form of therapy for both the physically and mentally disabled. This sport has ruined my sleep schedule, nails, social capabilities, appearance, grades, life. and I have loved every minute of it. I wouldn't trade this lifestyle for the world, because for me, it is my world. - SassyEquine
Nr. 39!? This is just sad... How is running greater sport than horseback riding!?V 14 Comments
The best thing about horse riding is the bond you have with your horse. Nothing else can equal that bond and it keeps on growing stronger with every day that passes. No other sports give you the chance to bond with such incredible, beautiful animals. Jumping is the best part, it is all about trust and the feeling you get when you have a clear round and you know that you and your horse did it together is amazing. Obviously all you people have never experience the incredible soaring feeling you get as you clear the jump and that wonderful sense of acheivement. To be a really good riding takes years of hard work and dedication and only the best make it to the top but as long as I live I will keep trying. I wil never, NEVER give up riding!
Horseback riding is the best sport in my opinion. It is something not everyone can experience but I am one who has experienced it. I also have done dance, basketball, soccer and other sports but I still think equestrian is best. Having a teammate that we have to speak to with no words. Its not just about the riding in fact it is way more then that. It is a friendship, bond, freedom that can never be broken. It is something I will be doing my whole life.
How is horse back riding number 65 this sport is incredibly difficult and dangerous. You are on a animal That has a mind of its own! The horse could decide to kill you at any time or to mention how may falls there are and even deaths. However if you what to put in the time, effort, money, and bravery than give riding a try it is so fun. I love it u will too
Equestrian is the most dangerous and hardest sport I know it should be higher on this list.V 16 Comments
On world base, judo is definitely the biggest sport in the world. It's In the olympic summer games and is 10 times more effective then any other "fighting sport" In the world. Most of the technics In UFC is based on Judo. Judo, more than sport!
Judo is the best! I have a green-orange belt. - Judo05
Fat British blokes. Enough said.

What!?! Dancing should be first on this list! It's the hardest sport (especially ballet! ) I'm glad it is here though! Dancing involves major passion and motivation! It's the best feeling and way to express yourself! I love dancing! It's the best sport ever! And should definitely beat some of the other sports! Dancers unite...vote!
Dance takes not just strength but also grace. Not many sports can say that they look stunning and gorgeous while they are playing the biggest game of their life.
I've done a lot of sport, but dance is probably the greatest sport I've ever done and it is the only sport I have continued to this day.
UM EXCUSE ME BUT LISTEN UP! Trust me when I say DANCE TAKE SO MUCH WORK! It's not just ballet all though it is one of the most popular type of dance; You don't just do truns and leaps and more turns and leaps! AND IF ANYONE ANYONE SAYS OTHERWISE THEY ARE TRULY MISTAKEN! I have to take of all of my Friday to go to dance form 4:30 (right when I get out of school) to 8:00! It's a huge commitment!V 13 Comments
I love kungfu

I love biking this sport should be before cycling
The game with the most team spirit, if you wanna play you have to know how to pass, there is no possible way to be selfish in this game and it will always stay that way.
thsi game is so fun!!! it should be in the top ten
Ultimate Frisbee is undoubtedly the earths greatest sport it's about the team and you give your body for the game wining catch that is frisbee
Awesome sport so underrated its fun both casual and competitive and almost anyone can playV 2 Comments
Number 36! Figure skating deserves to be number 1! It is a beautiful, fun, and all around fantastic sport! When I am on ice, I am at home! Sure, it might be hard at first, and you might fall a couple times, but in the end, when you finally land a jump or master a footwork step and feel that elated, happy, free, floating feeling, you realize what made you fall in love with this amazing and beautiful sport.
36! figure skating is supposed to be 1! It is so fun, artistic, beautiful and a serious sport! I am on a high level in figure skating and I think it's the one of the best sports ever!
This sport is so great! We match jumping, skating, having speed and dancing and all of this on the ice! We feel free while skating. we never get bored in figure skating because there is always something different to train. that's why we keep training for hours. but figure skating is also the most beautiful sport to look at.
Noo! Figure skating should switch would switch. Holy cow 39!V 7 Comments
This is a sport that changes with technology. It's a sport like no other. I've never seen someone play paintball and not like it. It's the only sport people pay thousands of dollars to play. It's a Passion.
This sport shouldn't be this low on the list. I think it's better than all of the top ten in this list and should get the respect that it deserves instead of those stupid overrated sports that are not fun to play what-so-ever.
Why do people like paintball so much? In my opinion airsoft is so much better.
You go out and shoot people. Enough said.V 5 Comments
To be the best you must drive like you stole it
How on earth Motogp is in so lower position...? Valentino Rossi forever...! 46...!
