Top 6 Sports You Never Knew Were Popular in Australia

  • Written by NewsCo

India is famous for its football betting, Canada is famous for its hockey betting, but what about Australia? She is also famous for sports, athletes, and betting, especially on dog racing, when almost everyone knows and talks about Greyhound racing results. Moreover, some types of sports entertainment were invented here.

The fact is that Australia is a country of sports and sports hobbies. Team, water, and extreme sports are popular here, all of which can be combined.

 

Football

Classic football (aka soccer), Australian football (aka rugby) are both equally popular and teams often represent the country at international tournaments.

Tennis

According to numerous polls of residents, tennis ranks second after surfing in terms of the number of people who are interested in this sport. Moreover, the country hosts a grandiose tennis tournament Australian Open.

Cricket

An old English sport, in which teams from Australia and Great Britain take part most often. They usually play on grass, on an oval-shaped field, in the center of which is a strip of earth. At each end of the strip, there is a wicket gate where the players are. The goal of the serving team is to hit the opponent's wicket with the ball, and the defending team's goal is to hit the ball and get to the opponent's wicket.


Golf

The game uses a ball and a stick, and the essence of the game is to carry the ball from one zone to another and drive it into the hole in the minimum number of strokes. There are a lot of golf courses in Australia.

Extreme Sports

Australia is a thrill-seeker's paradise. Formula 1 racing car rallies, skydiving, and their varieties, paragliding, free diving - for every taste.

Water Sports

The greatest popularity and tremendous demand are for water sports, especially surfing. A huge number of Australian beaches are conducive to long-wave riding, and the presence of the Great Barrier Reef is conducive to diving. Australia is generally considered the world center for surfing and diving, so it is worth visiting at least for these two entertainments.
