Different types of sports categories

With different sports categories, there are actually many to choose from to partake to stay active.

Sports come in different categories even though most of us simply look for the sport that we want to partake in and simply pick it up from there. However, today, we want to open up your mind on the different sporting  and online gambling categories that way you know where your sport falls. 

There are basically 5 different sports categories, and these are:

  1. Games
  2. Athletics
  3. Gymnastics
  4. Dance
  5. Outdoor and Adventurous actives


Under games we have 3 different divisions and these are:

  • Invasion games: These are game where you have invade the opponents space to get a score like football, hockey, netball, basketball and rugby.
  • Net/wall/ racket games: these are games that will need you to get a score over a net in order to get a score like tennis, badminton, volleyball etc. 
  • Fielding/ batting games: Where players will have to use field and bats to get a score like rounder’s, cricket, baseball and softball. 


These are games that are more concerned with the fastest, the highest as well as the strongest. Through these games, players will competing with each based on time, distance, highest jumps and furthest throws. Like cycling, racing, swimming. 


With gymnastics, we look at games that cover activities like floor work, vaulting, parallel bars as well as other apparatus work. These are concerned with performances judged on quality on body movement, movement replication as the closet replica to that textbook performance. 


This is a sport that deals with performance based on choreographed piece of work to certain piece of music. Varieties of dance include ballroom, ballet, folklore and modern dance. 


Then we have other sports like online casino games that fall under video sports. And then then are other outdoor activities that include archery, golf and of the like.

Majority of female athletes (58%) support categorization by biological sex, rather than gender identity, but views differ according to sporting context.

Lifestyle & Culture

While the world has many sports that are simple and easy to understand, there are some that are just downright bizarre and odd.


In Wisconsin, the governor vetoed a bill that would have banned high school transgender athletes from competing on teams aligning with their gender identity.


The New Hampshire House of Representatives voted 189:182 to bar transgender women and girls from participating on female school sports teams.
