Top Ten Greatest Sports

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.

This sport has really changed me mentally and physically. At first, it was much tougher than I thought to be honest and made me fall to my feet quite a few times. I was much weaker then and very hesitate so I wouldn't recieve the ball as much. But over time, I started to practice a lot (this kind of sport requires daily practice by the way), and got better and better at it. Still, I was hesitating. The coached would always scream my name when I would receive the ball and I would panic and pass it to someone else or make a lousy shot (I still made a few though). People would tell me I should be more confident and practice even more, which I did for the team. Soon enough, my time came and I started making layups here and there and even took the ball down the court consistently. I one day became the star of the team and the coach would always rely on me in the game as well as the team. Still, it was quite tiring and much of a challenge for me too. But this is a very social sport and in ...more

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

It's both fun to watch and to play. There's not too many stops compared to other sports like football and baseball, which results in constant, non-stop action! Basketball is just an amazing game that has created some of the best athletes in the world, as it places an emphasis on stamina, coordination, and teamwork, probably more so than any other sport.

2 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 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.

But soccer would be more exciting if there were subs. Hockey's great because for the 1-2 minutes they're on the ice, they can push it to the max. Soccer is more like a marathon. Both are great athletes, but soccer is slower to watch because of it. - Xean45

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!

The sport with the most fans around the world is soccer. Is number 2 here because this site is an American website. Americans are anti-soccer because they suck at it.

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

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 cool and fun sometimes, I also like keeping track of the mlb scores, and I watch mlb clips sometimes

Baseball requires hard work and determination at its hardest as someone who plays baseball and has played all the sports above except basketball which has been too flashy for me baseball while slow has a wisdom no other sport has I train 2 hours a day on one topic of the game which makes so complex in its simplistic nature

Baseball uses the most athletic abilities use your arms for throwing and catching and batting uses your feet to run bases

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

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

THE GREATEST SPORT OF ALL TIME! Showing appropriate violence, being a tough and physical game, being very exciting, this game is amazing. It is easy to play, a little complicated to understand if you are a foreigner, as this is an American game and is different from most sports or games (the games stop, rather than European sports, for example, that always keep ongoing). This should be NUMBER ONE!

The average football game is two hours long and only has THREE MINUTES of action!

Football is awesome! There are five seasons winter, summer, spring, fall, And football season!

5 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

hardest sport in the world, has biggest rivalries in sports, most physical of all team sports. In basketball, players on defense are hardly allowed to touch the people on offense. In hockey, you'll regularly see checks, fights, battles, stick lifts, players bowling opposing players away from their team's goalie, players playing through broken legs or torn ACLs or lost teeth. It is also the fastest paced sport in the world.

Ice hockey is the best I always like seeing nhl highlights and keep track of the scores

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

6 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

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.

All the higher ranked sports are OK IF YOU play them but be honest, YOU watch 'em on the sofa which makes you a couch potato and what you call a sport is really just "entertainment" like watching a movie. To be a sport YOU have to PLAY it. So how many of you call up 21 of your buddies on the weekend to join you in a game of football?...or call 17 of your buddies to join you in a game of baseball...or call up a buddy or two and drink a case of beer while watching somebody else on T.V. play a sport? That's why Tennis is the best...plenty of people to play this sport with in local leagues and tennis clubs...and avoid that beer body...and coronary/diabetes/high blood pressure...and so on.

7 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.

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!

Swimming is the best, I love swimming, I always have fun swimming

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.

8 Bowling

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

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.

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.

9 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 on top, every time I watch it especially watching fights of pacquiao and other filipinos it gives me thrill

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!

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

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.

10 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.

Volleyball is SO much fun! It's a game that EVERYONE can play at ANY level year-round and have a blast! Volleyball is everywhere - schools, beaches, community ed and bar leagues - clearly, people have fun playing! It's a great sport to play with your friends casually or competitively, and if you've never smashed that ball to the ground for a big kill, or aced a serve, you're missing out! Such an awesome feeling!

I fell in love with it. Before I hated anything to do with sports, but this one is way different and football is NOTHING compared to this (in my opinion).

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.

The Contenders

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

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 not only AMAZING, but it makes you a total badass!

12 American Football

The sport requires speed, strength, and agility. A person needs a good attention span, but it can grow on you.

They listed this two times American football and football


Love it.Great and good sport.


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

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.

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.

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.

You ae to have a great attitude and passion do this sport. Skill also. You can't just go out there and run after a ball. You have to actually watch another person to see what there next move is going to be. It takes endurance. Lots of it. And passion.

14 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.

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.

Golf is a good walk, ruined. not a sport.
It requires no athletic ability to
Hit a ping-pong size ball.
Stroll around manicured lawns.

They don't even carry their own golf clubs

15 Dodgeball

dodgeball can be played by any age,I'm 7 and I play dodgeball in my school gym

Doggeball is an underrated sport that needs good reflex. The NDL should be bigger

What could be better than chucking balls at people's heads? I mean, seriously, just think about it...

American Dodgeball Association of America, enough said

16 Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

1.6 Billion people follow cricket.
It is great game and soon cricket leagues like IPL would own EPL and Other leagues of soccer,

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
Watch cricket

What more is there to say? Cricket is the Gentleman's sport. And yes, it is a sport. An incredibly vigorous, athletic, intense sport. Bat under a sweltering hot Perth sun and have hard leather balls being thrown at your head at 95 mph and then talk about how this sport doesn't require bravery, determination, grit, and skill. There are so many pieces of the puzzle, so many tactics and captaincy decisions that actually matter, that Cricket may well be the physical sporting equivalent of Chess, being much, much more interesting and fun to watch!

17 Auto Racing

Mountain biking, motorsports, skiing. Pinnacle of sport no question

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.

Auto racing is a mixed bag.
F1, and rally aren't boring, but nascar is extremely boring.

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...

18 Mixed Martial Arts Mixed martial arts is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports and martial arts.

Great sport for humans of any age! From school yards to elderly nursing homes, anyone can participate!

UFC, Pride, WEC, and all the others

It is terrible for children and you can die.

This should be #1 it is the ultimate sport that need every muscle of the body to do.

19 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".

Badminton is so much fun as it is the fastest racket sport, the feeling of the shuttle whooshing through the air is unlike any other and it is just amazing. You can burn 350 calories in just one hour of playing the sport! Plus, like any sport, it has other benefits such as mental health and making friends. GO BADMINTON FOREVER!

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

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

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

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.

THIS SHOULD BE HIGHER what! Gymnastics is a lot harder than it looks I train 22 hours a week and there is a lot of conditioning, gymnastics is the best sport

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!

21 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.

Running is my favorite sport by a long shot. I've ran for three years its been fun and it has paid off

I won a running race, I was so happy I ran for the rest of my life and know it is my hobby, this sport has changed my life and can be played by any age.

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

It is very competitive and no stopping this should be high er then football

22 Biking

Biking and Cycling are the same thing so why did you put this on here?

I do biking I love it it's really keeps your whole tire body moving this sport is more but than cycling much butter.

I love biking this sport should be before cycling

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

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.

Ping Pong answers the essential question of our time: how can you take a half-decent sport and make it even more pointless? Shrink it down!

I have been playing since I was 7 now I am 12 its awesome

24 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.

To anyone who thinks that this sport just entails sitting on a horse, you are insane. Unless the horse is just walking don't think I ever actually just sit on it. Horseback riding uses a wide range of leg and stomach muscles and can be incredibly dangerous if the rider is not properly trained (leaning to much forward or backward, holding the reins to stiffly or letting them bounce to much, positioning your foot to high or low, squeezing or not squeezing with your legs enough is a great way to spur the horses, get bucked, or just fall off). It is also a very satisfying sport as it creates a bond with you and your horse, let's you jump (okay who doesn't think jumping three feet is cool? ), go at high speeds, and compete in various equestrian activities (dressage, vaulting, polo, etc.)

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

Well thanks America for letting us know you are riding the back of a horse not the front.

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

25 Dance

I'm restarting dance this year starting off with ballet which I did for 4 years and then had a 3 year break but I wanted to start again earlier to be honest but anyway

I have been doing ballet for 7 years I am 9 about 2 more years till pointe.

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!

Well I know a lot of people who do not like any kind of sports...but they love Dancing! Dancing can be done by any one in any way...there are no rules, since it is a form of art. Personally I love it! Always makes me feel vivid and happy
