#1. Polo

Freestyle polo has no rules. The Rules: There are no rules! Freestyle polo is undoubtedly polo, in its purest form. Freestyle polo is played only in Gilgit-Baltistan.
The origin of the game is unknown. It probably originated as a simple game played by Iranian horse-riding nomads in Central Asia. Its current form originated in Iran (Persia) and spread east and west. Polo became the national sport of Persia, played mostly by the nobility. The Sasanian ruling class was part of royal education. Emperor Shapur II learned to play polo at the age of seven in 316 AD. A similar tradition passed in Baltistan. Ali Sher Khan introduced polo to GB for the first time.

#2.Sepak Takraw

Sepak Takraw is a soccer game where players touch and catch the ball using only their feet, knees, chest and head. The rules and regulations of the game are very similar to volleyball. A very popular game in Southeast Asia, this game is played using a mouse or an artificial ball. Since 1990, sepak takra has also been included in the Asian Games.
Like volleyball, two teams of players try to control the ball by touching it using their legs, chest, knees or head. The first team to score the highest is declared the winner.

#3. Bossaball

Baseball is a sport similar to volleyball and also includes elements of soccer, gymnastics and capoeira. The game was developed in 2004 by Philip Eckmans of Spain. The word bossa means 'style' in Portuguese and is often associated with bossa nova or samba genres of music. Baseball's purpose is to express sports, music and positive emotions at the same time.
Baseball is played on an inflatable field with a trampoline on each side of the net. This allows players to recover more to accelerate the ball.

Baseball consists of two teams with 4 or 5 players each. The height of the net can be adjusted depending on who is playing. A team scores a point by winning or making an opponent's mistake.

#4. Zorbing

Zorbing is an extreme adventure sport where participants ride around in a zorb. It is usually planted on a slope or level ground. Arrangements can be made on wooden or metal ramps. Zorbing is popular in amusement parks where it takes place on the surface of the water. Participants fit themselves into a sealed orbit and then start spinning.

Events typically use two types of orbs, an armored orb or an unarmored orb. Armored orbs have a lower internal capacity than armored ones, carrying three to four riders at a time. But the rig can only hold one or two riders at a time.

The zorbing ball is made of two separate layers of clear flexible plastic that are connected by hundreds of cables to facilitate proper rotation and spin of the ball. Zorbs are about the size of a beach ball, and simply slide down a grassy or sloping surface where the rider zips and goes downhill.

#5. Camel Jumping

Camel jumping is an athletic and acrobatic sport that originated in the deserts of Yemen. The game is played professionally or otherwise only by the desert tribes of Zaranik. The game is believed to have been played since ancient times as a challenge between two Zaranek clans.

The objective of the game is to clear a group of camels arranged horizontally. If any part of the camel's body is touched, the jump is invalid. Athletes compete barefoot and wear traditional clothing. But the long skirt is tied at the waist level so that it does not get in the way when jumping.

Players start from a distance and run to the camels to jump. As in vault gymnastics, there is a starting mound that athletes use to lift for a jump. The mound is made of clay and is about 1 foot high. Players only get one attempt to clear the camels. The player who clears the most camels is declared the winner and is awarded a cash prize.

#6. Buzkashi

Buzkashi, also known as Kokpar or Kokoboro, Ulk Tartish, Kok Pari, Kok Berry and Ulk Tertish, is a game in which riders on horseback attempt to drag the goat's carcass to a goal. Buzkashi is played throughout Central Asia, mostly in Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and also in Iran. It is the national game of Afghanistan.

Most of the time A riders wear heavy clothing E and head protection to protect themselves from whips and boots. According to the Afghanistan Olympic Federation, the sport is played on a rectangular field with 400 meters on each side. Each team must have 10 riders, but only five riders can play in each half.

Games last approximately 90 minutes, with each half lasting 45 minutes, with a 15-minute break in between. Sometimes games can last for several days.

#7. Extreme Ironing

Extreme Ironing is a British sport that combines three elements: physical strength, mental toughness and humor. No wonder if you don't know anyone who works for a sports iron. You can see how crazy metal can be by looking at pictures on the net. Some people find themselves wearing tights while scuba diving, painting, and even rock climbing!

Despite how ridiculous the sport may seem, many people take metal too seriously. Humans have formed organizations to deal with various challenges and create rules while engaging with them. An example is the EIB, known as the EIB, which promotes and regulates sport. Thanks to the EIB, the growing popularity of the sport has led to the organization of world championships.

But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Learning about a soldering iron is a great way to spend a few minutes of your time. Because the few who participate in the movement are challenged in ways beyond what most people know and do. Getting out of a plane is hard enough in itself, but carrying a whole bunch of metal armor? This is a whole new world.

#8. Shin Kicking

Skeenskop (also known as hacking or purging) is an ancient sport, part of the annual Cotswold Olympics. The goal of a shin kick is simple: kick your opponent as hard as you can in the shins. Every time your opponent falls to the ground, you get a point.

The winner is the person with the highest score in three rounds. Competitors look at each other and grab each other's collars. They kick each other in the shins and try to knock them down.

They can also stuff their legs with as much straw as possible, and should happily wear soft shoes. There will be no steel toe shoes like the past!

#9. Oil wrestling

Every year in June, the Turkish Oil Wrestling Tournament is held in Kirkpenar, Edirne, Turkey. Yagli Goris, or Turkish oil wrestling, is where two oil wrestlers compete on grass to lift each other into the air and 'smash' their opponents.

The roots of Yagli Gorus can be traced back to 1346 during the Ottoman campaign in Thrace. On this occasion, two soldiers competed to the death in a boat, and the winners were awarded horses, camels, or oxen. Although now, champions are awarded gold belts and cash prizes. For most, however, the honor of being crowned the winner.

Oil was first introduced to ensure fairness, making wrestling about strategy rather than the size or strength of the wrestler. The addition of oil also makes it harder to stand up and get a grip as sweat mixes with the oil on the grass around them. This ensures that the match is fair as both opponents are disadvantaged by allowing men of different weights to fight.

Earlier, there was no set time limit on a battle, meaning it could last from minutes to hours. However, two men have previously fought for more than a day and unfortunately lost their lives, so all matches are now set to a 40-minute time limit.

#10. Chess boxing

Chess boxing is a game that, as the name suggests, combines chess and boxing. Players play alternating rounds of rapid chess and boxing until one of them wins in discipline or when their opponent quits.

Players can win by knockout during boxing rounds or checkmate during chess rounds. They can also lose by running out of time or by constantly moving while playing chess. Players can also lose for breaking various boxing rules.
