82 Parkour

Technically, Parkour isn't a sport. It's like art, except you're using you're body. However, I still consider it an extracurricular activity so it's cool to see it on this list. Also unlike gymnastics, Parkour can be done whatever way you want. You don't have to point your toes or anything like that. You just tackle the skills in whatever style that suits you. Tons of fun!

Parkour is a sport. And it's the best. Should be 1. Mix every sport (except parkour) together, and parkour would be better by a long shot. #1!

If you know parkour, then you can do so much with that knowledge. Look at all the people who run across rooftops for fun or climb skyscrapers or cranes or telecom towers-though I think that's a daredevil. Anyway, parkour should not be this low on the list.

I love parkour I do it in my creak and go to special parkour areas it should really be the in top 10

83 Gaelic Football

Another amazing Irish Sport. Definitely top five. The Irish national sports should be two of the top five if judged on the quality of the sport rather than popularity due to colonialism, weight of population or cultural influence

Many don't see it but it is a very hard sport to play. Amazing none the less.

Gaelic football is a great sport to watch or play.
Definitely the most underestimated sport.

84 Futsal

Better than Quidditch.

Futsal, or futsala, is a variant of association football played on a hard court, smaller than a football pitch, and mainly indoors. It can be considered a version of five-a-side football.
Futsal is played between two teams of five players each, one of whom is the goalkeeper. Unlimited substitutions are permitted. Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball. The surface, ball and rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity, and technique as well as ball control and passing in small spaces. - Stelist

"It would be better if you did it with a broomstick." Says every Muggle Quidditch player ever. Literally, they do everything on a broomstick! They're insane!

"Wayyy better than Muggle Quidditch! " Agreed.

85 Fencing

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.

the coolist sport ever and surprisingly one of the most tiring

Great back and forth sport that is very interesting to watch. I don't know why circus sports such as juggling and unicycle hockey are higher than this.

The most strategic sport and very technical. A beautiful sport to watch and fence

91 Softball

I know it's practically the same as baseball, but it's not because there are many different pitches and the pitches can be fast and really hurt when the ball hits you. I think it's a great sport because I played tee- ball
In kindergarten and worked my way up until now. Today My team won championship. Since softballs are bigger it doesn't mean they are easier to hit. You have to work on getting your sliding right, and baseball players don't slide, they dive to the base.

Softball should be number one have you ever of if it was easy everybody would well that's what makes softball number one in its quality

I think it should be in at least the top 5 I mean every girl I meet plays softball softball is fun and nice to get out there and feel free I love it I mean I said five but if not that top 10

I'm 11years old and I eat, drink, and breathe softball. I play on a select traveling team and we are all like sisters. I am only 4'7 and people are always saying that I'm to small to play but I love proving them wrong I get on base 4 out of 5 times. I am a great center fielder
and I rarely ever make an error in the field. My dream is to be the center fielder for ATM and be the first hitter as a slapper in the line up. Don't let anyone tell you your not good enough to do something that you want to do. NEVER give up your dream.

99 Synchronized Swimming

This is by far the greatest sport. It's hard, requires endurance, grace, flexibility, memory, strength and you have to practice a lot. It is an olympic sport, which a lot of the sports above it aren't. It is both sharp and precise and graceful. Please vote for it.

I do synchronized swimming myself. It makes no sense that it is so low on this list - pez

100 Sailing

Sailing is so underrated! No one understands how much hard work is involved in RACING. Look up 'Sailing Shack' on YouTube to see what sailing is really like.

Being out on the water is an amazing feeling. Feeling the boat power up and the spray washing over you. Its just awesome.
