    From fishing to golf to volleyball and tennis, sports come in all different shapes and sizes. And while basketball may be one of the most exciting sports, it’s not the hardest — at least, according to a study done by ESPN.

    A panel of specialists ranked the difficulty based on several criteria including things like endurance, strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, durability, hand-eye coordination, & analytic aptitude.

    We identified 10 categories, or skills, that go into athleticism, and then asked our eight panelists to assign a number from 1 to 10 to the demands each sport makes of each of those 10 skills. By totaling and averaging their responses, we arrived at a degree-of-difficulty number for each sport on a 1 to 100 scale. That number places the difficulty of performing each sport in context with the other sports we rated.

    Needless to say, the list is pretty controversial. The danger and skilllevel of a boxer is obviously unmatched and those guys literally risk their lives every day to do what they do in the ring.


    But should basketball be higher? Obviously, there’s a lot more that goes into the game than simply putting the ball into the hoop. There are a lot of layers and components to the sport and it’s not easy to master. Of course, it’s difficulty level might be different depending on who you ask…

    Boxing and kick boxing - is not a sports in my opinion.

    And whoever came up with this list and with their hopelessly romantic criteria of selection, should be put in jail.

    In England, it's called the Game of gods. We call it cricket.

    There's a small logo in that OP screenshot that says "Unbiased America Sports" which is ironic considering the list of many American sports in the top 10.

    Don't think American Football deserves to be at 3 way ahead Rugby and the real football (soccer).

    Basketball at 4 is a joke to say the least.

    Baseball at 9 but no mention of cricket in top 60

    Tennis at 7 ahead of squash which requires a lot more skill and agility.

    Billiards is mentioned but they forget about snooker lol

    Even boxing ahead of UFC?

    Boxing is very technical contrary to popular belief, not sure about it being the most difficult sport, but it ain't easy for sure.

    More cricket is played in USA than at least 30 sports listed there.

    I think pretty soon more cricket will be played in USA than in England.

    Squash is the toughest game physically. Whoever complied this list has no idea about the games. Looks like some American made this list.

    American Football is no joke, it's easily one of the most physical sports in the world. I've seen more gruesome injuries in NFL than any other sport.

    Being a club-level amateur Tennis player myself, I could say its an extremely difficult sport both in terms of required stamina and agility as well the technical aspects of it.

    Another sport that is probably at the same level is Squash, that I also play at times. Both are hard on your body and physically demanding.

    Tennis is a tough game. When you’re on the court you realise how big it actually is and the ground you have to cover. Looks much Smaller on tv.

    Boxing is probably the most courageous sport. Mentally and physically.

    Squash is defo harder than tennis. You can still get away with not having proper stamina in tennis but no chance in squash.

    I meant compared to the levels needed when playing squash (not as a whole). You need higher levels for squash compared to tennis/both aren't the same

    Otherwise you need (at the very least) decent stamina levels for most proper sports
