Fun-loving Sports You’ve Never Heard Of

You think you know the sports, don’t you?

Everyone has heard of soccer, football, rugby, tennis, swimming and running, but not everyone knows about wife-carrying or chess boxing.

Different sports are enjoyed by people in different climates and countries.

Here are 10 of the most unusual and fun-loving sports events from around the world, some of these may seem truly bizarre!

1. Sepak takraw

A popular sport in Southeast Asia, this action pack game resembles volleyball, but instead of hands, players use their feet, knees, chest and head to move the ball, made from soft wood.

The International Sepak Takraw Federation holds competitions with teams from over a hundred countries.

2. Quidditch

This sport was first described in the popular Harry Potter book series, which involves a semi-contact ball sport, played on broomsticks.

Real world enthusiasts have invented a land version which is played on a hockey field.

The game first began in US colleges and has spread across the states.

Supporters refer to the game as muggle quidditch because muggles are what the series characters call non-magic folk.
