Top Ten Greatest Sports


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 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

I love basketball because scores can change really quickly, and teams can make insane comebacks if they have to. It isn't like soccer where people score every half an hour or so.

I am an die-hard fan of basket ball. It is just an innovative sport that brings competition to the next level and I,for one, absolutely love the sport of basketball.

Best sport in the world

2 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

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!

How is basketball first? Soccer is the real world's game. It unites the world. The FIFA World Cup, UEFA Euro Cup, UEFA Champions League, and Copa America are the best times of the year!

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

"Football should be higher it is clearly the greatest sport"

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

I hate football it's too slow paced and painful to watch - myusernameisthis

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

It is interesting to watch. While yes, it can get boring, it is fun. Especially to go to a game! The energy, and hope of getting a ball! It get a bad rep because there is not a lot of running, you do still run, and it is tiring. Also, it requires a lot of strategy, and bravery. These pitchers are pitching the HARD ball at close to 100 mph usually, and the batters usually stay in the box, or try and catch the ball flying at them at sometimes 100 mph.

America's pastime, America's the greatest country.

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 has always been in my family and it is what brings my family together since not all of us are always together

5 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.

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

I think that lots of people should vote for this because it's a cool ice sport

It's the best sport ever

Hockey players are the toughest players in any sport, to get out on the ice where every player has sharp blades on their feet, sticks in their hands and a puck that can move at speeds of 100 mph and they get to bare knuckle fight but instead of being ejected for 5 games they get a 5 minute penalty how it this not number 1.

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

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

I have been playing tennis since I was 4 years old, it is so much fun to play! It also helps your cognitive abilities, hand eye coordination, etc. I also have some really good friends from tennis. Some of my school friends are starting to be a bit fake, but my tennis team will always support me and each other.

I love tennis. It's amazing. I've played it a lot in Primary school and some in Secondary as well. It's literally the best in my opinion. This sport is totally recommended for people who haven't tried it yet.

Best sport ever. No. 1 in this list

7 Swimming Swimming Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.

I actually participated for a swimming cup in a school. That's why I love Swimming so much

I LOVE Swimming! It is a way to cool off, and really great for exercise. It is the best and it is very challenging for professional swimmers to swim all those laps, it takes up a lot of energy and is really hard to conserve it.

In swimming, you have to work the absolute hardest out of any sport. It is by far the most helpful sport, as well the most healthy for the body. Should be number one. - Charmedyeti

Instead of making you sweat like most sports, it cools you off. Also, you can even relax while swimming! The only bad part is drowning, but it isn't that likely if you know how to swim!

8 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..

It's a very passionate and misunderstood sport, should be ranked higher at least top five.

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

Greatest individual sport for sure. Deserves to be at least #3 on this list.

9 Bowling Bowling

When I bowl, the experience is cathartic. I leave the lanes purged. CLEAN.

Bowling's my favorite sport.

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.

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.

10 Wrestling Wrestling Wrestling is a combat sport involving grappling type techniques such as clinch fighting, throws and takedowns, joint locks, pins and other grappling holds.

It's fake unlike Baseball, Football, Ice Hockey, Basketball, even the most boring like Soccer, Golf, Nascar, and Tennis. It is so boring and pointless. Don't even get me started on the WWE, it has 2 be canceled. - Joshuaisdotdotdot

This entry is for the real sport Olympic Wrestling and not Professional Wrestling, which is the scripted version. Since we're on that subject, Pro Wrestling is still a sport and it's a very dangerous one. More dangerous than normal wrestling. Pro wrestlers are athletes who put their bodies on the line for the entertainment of fans. A lot goes into it and it's very complicated. It's not just acting and "faking" like ignorant people like you say. They actually punch each other for real, although they obviously don't do it as hard as they can like in other sports such as boxing or mma. A lot can go wrong during wrestling matches and it's a real physical and mental task to accomplish. - RogerMcBaloney

I'm not participating in a sport where you touch a man's body and try to put him on the floor

Great sport but it's more fatal than boxing

This sports deserves to be higher

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..

I love biking this sport should be before cycling

18 Archery Archery Archery is the sport, practice or skill of using a bow to propel arrows. The word comes from the Latin arcus.

I miss archery but I'm too old for camp.

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.

It's better than basketball

I love badminton - kaisietoo

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.

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

Gymnastics is the best sport in the world I have fallen in love with it gymnastics should been number one

Gymnastics is one of the greatest sports in the world. I've been a competitive gymnast since the age of 7 and I have fallen completely in love with it. It's such a hard sport and that's what makes it fun. It requires strength, power, flexibility, agility, stamina etc. It's amazing to watch those Olympians flip about in the air, it takes a lot of skill and dedication to get that far and very few make it. It's amazing to see how gymnasts know where they are in the air during a somersault or twist, and know exactly where to open out to land perfectly. But it doesn't always go perfectly, it's hard and you will fall time and time again, but gymnastics gives you the power to not give up, to try your hardest to get that skill. Gymnastics teaches you a lot more than school does. I love to fly through the air, that's why I love it so much and why I find it so fun. I'm never gonna lose the love for this sport no matter what anyone says. If someone says gymnastics is bad, they don't know what ...more

I do gymnasts. It is the best sport ever.

Forrest Gump! - LightningStrike

My faourite Sport! I loe it! #thumbsup

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!

Here's what you need for Table Tennis:
Discipline, focus, motivation, precision, confidence, and strength, tell me haters, is any of that dumb? I have been playing Table Tennis since I was three and a half years old. I would consider myself 98% a master out of 100%. Please don't say "it's just tennis on a table! " It is so much better (no offense just my opinion) than tennis. SO BACK OFF. - Swiftdawn

24 Running Running Running is a method of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. Running is a type of gait characterized by an aerial phase in which all feet are above the ground.

How is running not in the top 3?

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

Amazing sport

Running is the best sport ever. It is a test of human endurance. It is a mind sport. Your will and speed are both critical in running. A good attitude too. You can run with a friend, with many people, or by yourself. It is an inspirational sport. Running has also changed the lives of many. Everyone knows what is running and so many people run on a daily basis. The satisfaction you get after running is also priceless and you know that you have worked out after running. Running is also required in almost every sport. Running is a classic, basic building block of Sports. - CherylS

Lacrosse is the best sport ever!

So underrated it is the graetest sport and is growing faster than any other sport

I’m doing lacrosse for the first time and boy do I love it! I like mostly everything about it except for running

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.

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!

31 Rugby League Rugby League Rugby league football, usually called rugby league, league, rugby or football , is a full contact sport played by two teams of thirteen players on a rectangular field.

Rugby league is beast

This should be at number one or two or three four not sixteen

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.

32 Cycling Cycling

Cycling should really be a top 10 sport in my opinion. You have to be in amazing shape to compete plus have some huge balls during steep descents.

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

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.

34 Field Hockey

best sport

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.

35 Horseback Riding Horseback Riding Horseback riding (or Equestrian) is one of the most intense sports known to man. Not only because it's physically challenging, but it takes more than athleticism. Horseback riding takes commitment, time, patience, and most importantly building a bond with your horse. If you don't have a good relationship more.

the bEST

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

I love Horseback Riding!

41 Cheerleading

Anyone who voted this is a dumb fat feminist mom that should eat a knife.

When I'm in high school, I'm planning on joining the cheerleading squad. The school colors are blue and gold. The main reason I want to join is because I was inspired by Riverdale to join cheerleading. I'll be a great cheerleader and have a boyfriend on the football team!

OK. First of all. If you are a competitive cheerleader, I respect you. I'm a football player. And quite frankly, I don't think you should be saying your sport is harder than ours. I'm guessing the conditioning is the same as I've never been a cheerleader. And you shouldn't disrespect us football players as we work really hard and you obviously haven't played football. Now I will admit that we football players hate on you a lot. But you cheerleaders hate just as much as us. And no offense, but we get the glory because when people go to a football game, the watch the football players, not the cheerleaders. But sorry, if you are a sideline cheerleader, but sideline cheer isn't a sport and no one really cares that much about it. But competitive cheer probably is very hard and you do risk your lives, as do us. We should just appreciate each other. - SuperCharged

Horse racing is better than football it is also more dangerous. A single horse can earn 6 million dollars I ONE race. Or it can win the triple crown. Just so you know it is the hardest thing to do in American sports. Only 11 have won it since 1875 and none since 1978. Many great horses have tried it and failed. It is one of the only sports that is done all over the world

Therefor, I am not impressed. People have put sports unicle hockey (? ) in front of this beautiful sport, the only sprt where animal and human are working together. I would have been happy if it was ranked in the 20's, at least, but when I saw it here in 66th place, I was ashamed of the person who put it here. Yes, some people would say it's cruel, but if you and the horse have the right bond, you would never harm your horse. Horses are only nasty if someone was nasty to them, and horse riders know they can't blame the horse if they didn't win. So little people know the joyof working with an animal, and having such an amazing bond. Sure, this is one of the priciest sports, because you need a horse, for one, which probably costs around $2000 - madwamoose

How is this below sports people have never heard of this sport is more dangerous than football. And better than football. Not mention how fun it is if you are on the right horse. Riding is the best

The most exciting sport in the world.

Rock climbing is clearly the best sport!

Rock climbing is awesome

I love rock climbing 5 people in my family climb including me and my Aunt is nearly professional. It's my favorite sport that I also think is very hard. You need a ton of upper and core stregth

My dad climbed El Capitan, he said it was the hardest thing he had ever done in his life. I also rock climb and it is very demanding, rock climbing is very physical and as well very mental too.

47 Fencing Fencing

This my favourite sport of all time! - Murphypaw

Think chess, but with fast reflexes and intricate footwork. definitely deserves to be way higher than 51

I learn epée and I'm really devoted into it. Not only does it challenge your skills and reflexes, but it also requires focus, tactics, and most of all...knowing the opponent.

Fencing is one of the greatest sports I have ever played. The glorious combination of Tactics, Patience, Speed, and Footwork is put to work in this sport. Fencing is extremely underrated mainly because is is expensive, but otherwise it is the most enjoyable sport I have been a part of.

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
