    Most dangerous: Sporting activities


    We all know sport can be fun and taking part in physical activities on a regular basis can be great for meeting friends and keeping fit. Whether it’s a relaxing game of golf, a run, or a more physical game of rugby there are plenty of benefits when it comes to participating in sporting activities.

    However, some sports are more dangerous than others and can increase the chances of suffering a sports injury.

    What sports are the most dangerous?

    Although no sport can ever be classed as “safe,” there are some activities that are less likely to cause sports injuries or harmful slips, trips and falls:

    • Rugby
      Due to its high impact tackles and relentless energy levels, rugby is a game that ranks pretty highly in those sports that are described as dangerous. If players don’t know what they are doing or how to tackle, and be tackled, in the correct manner, there’s a good chance they will suffer a sport injury, which could be serious.
    • Scuba Diving
      By its sheer nature, diving can be one of the most dangerous activities out there. Without the correct training and practice, entering into deep waters and climbing over difficult and slippery surfaces could easily lead to a slip, trip or fall or even something more serious.
    • Wrestling
      It may look like fun, but without the correct training and years of experience wrestling can be one of the most dangerous sports to take part in. If you don’t know what you are doing then there’s a real risk you will get hurt. So even if you enjoy watching it. Leave the action in the ring to the professionals.
    • Football
      Millions of people play football every week, making it by far the biggest participation sport out there. And, due to the amount of people playing, the number of sports injuries can be high.

    Who is to blame for your sporting injury?
