Worst Sports


The Top Ten

1 Cricket 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.

Cricket is my favourite. It should be the best sport in the universe

Cricket is bad

I'd rather watch a turtle live the entirety of its life.

So much condition not a sports

2 Cheerleading

Cheerleaders are at the gym for 2 hours a day. Well gymnast at the gym for seven hours a day! Cheerleaders always claimed are the best but truly cheerleading is only popular because it gained popularity and all the boys like seeing those girls with make up on not to mention 12 pounds make up

Its not even a sport though...

Cheerleading is a sport if you do it comepetitevely (i can't spell lol) - Luckys

Its not even a sport. its an activity for sissies

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

This sport doesn't even require skills to play lol

Second worst I also played this, but I don't have much memory since I was 4... - Luckys

Most of the players have the physique of a 40 year old alcoholic.

Baseball is the best sport ever

4 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.

What soccer should not be on list it's the best game ever!

When it's on the list and it's written soccer this can only mean one thing. Americans.

You guys can't just insult Americans like that. Who do you think you are? I happen to be AfricaN- American and I don't appreciate your tone.

Why soccer is #1 sport because it's simple to follow and understands, unlike Rugby or American Football, also you can play it anywhere with ease

IT IS NOT the best sport or 2nd in fact the only sport where you fear for your life for wearing wrong teams jersey, the only sport that started conflicts between nations, the only sport that drives fans to smash cars, destroy shops and attack everyone insight, the only sport where it's always the ref fault not because the other team played better, the only sport where ref is completely disrespect, the only sport where everyone fakes an injury, the only sport were teams choose to draw, one of the lowest scoring sports (don't say strategy; missing a kick in font of an empty goal has nothing to do with strategy)... I could go all day long

This is Wrong if you actually ever played soccer you would know how fun it would be and it has brought millions of people together during the world cup and other tournaments. The only reason do get hurt is because of bad fans that get too intense though the sport should not be blamed for the immature fans.

I played soccer, and it was hella boring to me, along with watching it as well. - Luckys

5 Nascar

I can drive a car that not only turns left like NASCAR, but I can go right, reverse, take different roads, and carry passengers.

I attended the Pennsylvania 500 once and it was inarguably the least entertaining spectacle I've ever witnessed.

Why isn't this number 1? What makes this a sport? Just cars making left turns, cars crashing, speedy repairs, and engines roaring the whole length of the race?

I thought this was a list about sports, not about ovals. What's exciting about a group of cars that all drive the same speed all going in the same direction and all turning left at about the same time? I'd rather watch paint dry. Actually, I'd rather watch cricket. As far as car racing goes, NASCAR is the absolute worst. I wouldn't put car racing on my top 10 worst sports list, but NASCAR is way up there. Formula 1 is exciting and involves actual driving skills. Dirt tracks and dirt bikes are fun to watch. Do everyone a favor and simply abolish NASCAR.

6 Muggle Quidditch

Only absolute dorks play this fantasy game.

Who the crap even plays this game it's just a bunch of Harry potter nerds running around doing probably athletic stuff, but still why would you play this game

Not only is this muggliness one of the worst sports in existence, but it also has the dumbest people in the world running the organizations. For example, USQ prohibits high schools from playing college teams and community/ adult/ elderly teams. And since there is essentially zero high school teams it's literally impossible to start a high school team and expect to have any sort of fun whatsoever. Drastically hindering their potential (which they didn't have much to begin with) to grow the sport. Not only this but now USQ has split college and community teams into two separate pools. This will drastically hinder their growth once again. Not to mention that college and community teams are so spread out as it is that now it would be insanely difficult to ever play games, especially with a variety of teams (assuming that you're lucky enough to even have a single team near you). The question is: how is anyone insane enough to play Muggle Quidditch suppose to have fun at all?!? Since Muggle ...more

This list is rigged! Muggle Quidditch is easily the worst sport on this list!

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

Just plain bad

It's 1% action and 99% people standing around looking confused. It's like watching paint dry but with more concussions and other permanent injuries. - NotShawn

I used to enjoy this sport, but not anymore. Every game is the same. If you have seen one game you have seen them all.

Worst sport I've ever watched

8 Skateboarding Skateboarding Skateboarding is an action sport which involves riding and performing tricks using a skateboard. Skateboarding can also be considered a recreational activity, an art form, a job, or a method of transportation.

I just want to be on the comment list

Not a sport. Just teens messing around on the street.

9 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.

Basketball is the best sport. It takes a level of competitiveness and multi-tasking that no other sport can achieve. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world, so why don't we compare them. In soccer, you play with 10 other teammates and have to constantly "dribble" the ball up and down the field to get the ball in the goal which is being guarded by a goalie. In basketball, you constantly go up and down the court busting your ass to get back and run whatever play you need to run to get a man open just to have an opportunity to score. Oh, and you know that goalie in soccer that prevents you from scoring? Well, there's five in basketball that follow you and make sure you can't do what you need to do, and there's one for each player who's currently on the court. I know there's defenders in soccer to, but from my experience playing both sports, there's a huge difference in how competitive the defense is. But I say the biggest thing that makes people love basketball is the sense of ...more - hiphopgod

Nope. While you people enjoy playing it, others are falling asleep watching it. Some of them are trying to, but they can't because the buzzer rings every time someone scores, which happens so frequently that the whole game is scoring. That is boring. Also the court is so small, and it takes five seconds to get to the other end of the court. At least in other sports, when you score, it's actually interesting because in other sports, scoring is not the common part of game. And dribbling and shooting on someone who is guarding a soccer goal is way harder than throwing it over some dude with their hands wildly in the air.

My least favorite sport, majority of the community makes it look awful. Towards the end of every basketball game the losing team resorts to constantly penalizing the other team to stop the clock and try to come back, that is so broken and unentertaining.

If the court was bigger and the baskets 50% higher then maybe this would be a sport. But when you have a bunch of 8 foot tall monsters ramming through people with no penalty just to put a ball into a basket barely higher than they are it just turns into a big show off. Not a sport.

10 Golf 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.

Playing it is fun, but watching it is like watching paint dry

I remember watching a golf tournament with three golfing enthusiasts, and I can honestly say that never in my life did I feel more compelled to assault and batter.

Playing golf is fun, watching others golf in person is fun, but watching golf on T.V. is not fun.

It is boring to watch - BreakFastBeast2005

The Contenders

11 Lacrosse Lacrosse Lacrosse is a contact team sport played between two teams using a small rubber ball and a long-handled stick called a crosse or lacrosse stick.

It is a common sight to see LAX stickers on the bumpers of SUVs in suburban America. I hate those stickers. X is not a suitable substitute for crosse. Sorry if I offended any of you pathetic ignoramuses out there.

i hate it

As I live in Canada I am offended

Lacrosse is the best thing that ever happened to me. Growing up on the East Coast, I learned that lacrosse is not just a sport, it is a way of life. I had the amazing opportunity to grow up around the best sport in the world. Lacrosse is not very far from becoming mainstream.

I agree with the 2nd last comment.

Animal Abuse


This looks so scary. But really how is it a sport, all you do is try to hang on to the bull. Then after eight seconds you get thrown off and the bull stomps on all of your internal organs and kills U. Seriously who would do that?!

13 American Football

it is bad

Just fat guys playing a game where it should take 1 hour to play but takes 4 hours plus they have two teams in there own side to play the game. Also they wear pads and helmets show these guys a game of rugby league they wouldn't last five seconds

Football may be entertaining, but the fact of the matter is way too many people get hurt. That is going to ruin the franchise and will be the end of football. What I don't understand about you people is that you're so closed minded, you spend your time saying things like "it's pointless" or "I heart football", these statements have little meaning and you must play the game to understand how it works.

Shouldn't be called "Football". Too slow between plays and all the bloody commercials. European Football is the real football. Done in under 2 hours and two 45 minute halves of non-stop play.

How dare you curling is good

I feel like the people who play this sport are retired janitors with lots of experience mopping and scrubbing

Not only is this the spawn of Satan but apparently 2.5 billion people follow this toss. You telling me that 1/3 of people follow this! I know none of them. Do you think the starving people in Africa are more concerned about FIELD HOCKEY when they don't have drinkable water?

This sport is for GIRLS. Hockey is for posh women only. Should be illegal for men to play.

Eating a lot I consider is not a sport. If u eat to much get fat. If you get fat you are not healthy and it is not good.

I it bad for face hole.

You’re probably gonna experience some physical consequences for attempting to eat that much against the clock. You know, the pros do need to train for this. It’s not mental, but rather physical. - Kwaysar

20 Volleyball 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.

Everyone gets mad at you if you make your team loose. Very dividing sport.

I currently play volleyball and the only reason I do it is to give me something to do in the fall. This sport is so easy to play. I'm not saying it's the easiest, but it doesn't take that much skill to be good. Also, it's basically the same play every time. Bump. Set. Spike. Bump. Set. Spike. It gets boring over time. Anyway, this is my opinion. I'm sure others might love it and that's fine. I just think it's not that interesting.

How the heck is volleyball on worst sports list? Volleyball's one of the hardest sports I've ever played! You throw yourself to the ground to get a ball that can be going 70mph and jump an average of 300 times per game!

Volleyball is the most amazing sport around! If you think volleyball is stupid your stupid.

Volleyball is awesome. The idea sounds dumb and that's what I thought but when I first played it was awesome. What I appreciate is on a volleyball team you can't have rivalries or ball hogs like in football or basketball, everyone has to work as a team and communicate

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

My friends and I used to have ping pong tournaments while drinking alcohol and smoking weed. Things sometimes got out of hand. Arguments and fights were common. My memories of said tournaments are rife with disharmony and antisocial behavior. To hell with ping pong!

Ping pong is literally the worst stop watch talking bout m8

23 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.

I was a roommate of two hockey enthusiasts years ago. A Rangers fan and a Flyers fan. They were watching a game and I sat there, confused. I didn't know the rules. My roommates enthusiastically explained everything to me.I was grateful for the education,but I never watched another game again.

Handball is one of the most exciting, interesting, competitive, and fun games known. If you don't like it, it's probably because you just can't play it right, let alone at all.

25 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.

Wrestling allows for a small person to achieve athletic glory. I'm acquainted with a little person who was quite a successful wrestler, albeit in at a very light weight class, and he is extraordinarily confident and cocky. Without wrestling, his world would have been far less macho. I applaud wrestling for providing such midgets with a chance to shine athletically.


Wrestling is the most disciplining combat sport one can ever do. Wrestling is shaped my life at the high school and Collegiate level I would recommend wrestling to absolutely anyone willing to put their self through a rigorous experience to be the best person they can be

28 Australian Rules Football

It's trash. Trust me, I'm Aussie. I grew up around this, and I absolutely hate it. It is the most boring thing ever. It is the thing I hate most about Australia, and I want it gone. It is also incredibly male dominated, and although they have recently introduced women's AFL, it gets very little attention. It last for a few weeks, while the men's lasts half the year, and women get paid barely anything. And not to mention that all the talk shows about the men's AFL are sexist, and constantly treat women as inferior. And of course, there are the fans. I hate listening to my family yell at the T.V., constantly talking about how trash their team is, and how the umpires are liars, and how no one puts in any effort. A few nights ago, I was watching the World Cup. I was watching Japan and Colombia play, and I was at the T.V., alone, cheering for Colombia. However, I wasn't screaming, I was always having courage that they could win. I wasn't talking about how garbage Colombia is, unlike most ...more - Lanturnizer6

Utter Crap! Most people that enjoy this rubbish have only 2 teeth, are VB drinkers, have mullets and wear AFL Jersey's as formal attire. This sport sucks!

This sport ruined my life. My sister and mom are obsessed with horseback riding and it's driven me to the point I've had enough. Seriously, it's boring to do and boring to watch; this needs to be higher, because we can't do anything but go to watch my sister/mom ride around and jump on horses for three or so hours. I used to be a horseback rider myself, but I quit because I found it terrible and my parents argue over this sport.

PLEASE put this at number 1

No, no, no. This is talking about competitive horse riding (which is the best). It may be boring to you because you're on worn out old ponies that are used for BEGINNERS. Show some respect, ungrateful people - Horsesrlife

Horse back riding is the best sport in the world because it is starting a bond between a man and horse. I do barrel racing and pole bending I used to do jumping and western pleasure but I hated it but still I LOVE horses I own 3 now

The rich history of this sport stands alone. No sport in the history of athletics has induced more visceral and impassioned displays of heroism. In my mind the speed walker is head and shoulders above all other athletes. It is a beautiful combination of stamina and willpower that places the speed walker on a pedestal from where he can indulge in well earned adoration from the commoners beneath him.
