The Best Sports to Play

List Criteria: Vote up your favorite team and individual sports to participate in

The best sports to play are the ones that are just as fun to play as kids as they are to play as adults. These are the favorite sports of millions of people around the world, and the people who regard any of these as the greatest sports to play are unlikely to back down. Whether you're of the opinion that slow-pitch softball is the best sport to play or if you think the top sport to play is football (with or without flags), the chances are your favorite sport is on this list. Some of these sports have better chance of players sustaining crazy sports injuries than others, but some people can't walk down the street without getting hurt so why not get injured playing some fun sports?

What are the greatest sports to play? What are the best recreational sports? What are the best sports to play in college? What are the top sports for kids to play? At any age, sports are a part of life, and this list of the best sports to play is about exposing people to what may become their new favorite sport to play. If your favorite sport to play isn't on the list, make sure to add it and see if it can ascend the list and become the #1 best sport to play.
