The Most popular sport at my school is
basketball and football.
Basketball is a team sport in which two teams of 5 players
 try to score points against one another by placing a ball
 through a 10 foot (3.048 m) high hoop (the goal) under
 organized rules. A regulation NBA basketball court is
 94' long by 50' wide. Basketball is one of the most popular
 and widely viewed sports in the world.
Points are scored by throwing (shooting) the ball through
 the basket from above. The team with more points at the
 end of the game wins, but additional time (overtime)
 may be issued when the scores of both teams are the
 same. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing
 it (dribbling) or passing it between teammates.
 Disruptive physical contact (foul) is penalized, and free
 throws will be issued if an offensive player is fouled while
 shooting the ball. (violations).

Football is the name of several similar team sports, all with
 similar origins which involve, to varying degrees, kicking a
 ball with the foot in an attempt to score a goal. The most
 popular of these sports worldwide is association football,
 more commonly known as just "football" or "soccer".
 However, the word football is applied to whichever form of
 football is the most popular in each particular part of the
 world. Hence, the English language word "football" is
 applied to "gridiron football," a name associated with
 American football and Canadian football, Australian rules
 football, Gaelic football, Rugby league, Rugby union and
 some related games. These variations are known as
Hockey refers to any of a family of sports in which two
  teams play against each other by trying to maneuver
  a ball, or a hard, round, rubber or heavy plastic disc
  called a puck, into the opponent's net or goal, using a
  hockey stick.
Field hockey is played on gravel, natural grass, sand-
  based or water-based artificial turf, with a small, hard
  ball. The game is popular among both males and
  females in many parts of the world, particularly in
  Europe, Asia, Australia, and South Africa. In most
  countries, the game is played between single-sex
  sides, although they can be mixed-sex.
Ice hockey is played on a large flat area of ice, using
a three inch (76.2 mm) diameter vulcanized rubber
disc called a puck. This puck is often frozen before
high-level games to decrease the amount of
bouncing and friction on the ice. The game is
contested between two teams of skaters. The game is
played all over North America, Europe and in many
other countries around the world to varying extent. It
is the most popular sport in Canada, Finland, Latvia,
the Czech Republic, and in Slovakia.
The aquatic sport of swimming is based on the human act of swimming,
  that is, locomotion in water by self propulsion, usually with the goal
  to complete a given distance in the smallest amount of time. There are
  also swimming competitions based on endurance or precedence
  rather than speed, such as crossing the English Channel or some
  other stretch of open water. As a sport, swimming is usually
  distinguished from other aquatic sports (such as diving, synchronized
  swimming and water polo) that involve the act of swimming but where
  the goal is neither speed nor endurance.
Competetive swimming consist of four different strokes. The different
  strokes you can swim in a race are the butterfly, breaststroke,
  freestyle, and backstroke. When all four strokes are done during a
  race, it is called the I.M.(Individual Medley).
Swimming has been part of the modern Olympic Games since their
  inception in 1896, and is governed by the Fédération Internationale de
  Natation (FINA). The belief is widely held that swimming is the best
  aerobic exercise in the world.
Volleyball is an Olympic team sport in which two teams of 6
players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points
by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized
rules.[1] This article focuses on competitive indoor volleyball;
numerous other variations of volleyball have developed, most
notably the Olympic spin-off sport beach volleyball.
The complete rules are extensive. But simply, play proceeds as
follows: A player on one of the teams begins a rally by serving
the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or
arm), from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the
net, and into the receiving team's court. The receiving team must
not let the ball be grounded within their court. They may touch
the ball as many as three times. Typically, the first two touches
are to set up for an attack, an attempt to direct the ball back
over the net in such a way that the serving team is unable to
prevent it from being grounded in their court.

Tennis is a sport usually played between two players
 (singles) or between two teams of two players each
 (doubles). Each player uses a racket that is strung to
 strike a hollow rubber ball covered with felt past a
 net into the opponent's court.
The modern game of tennis originated in the United
 Kingdom in the late 19th century as "lawn tennis"
 which has heavy connections to various field/lawn
 games as well as to the ancient game of real tennis.
 After its creation, tennis spread throughout the
 upper-class English-speaking population before
 spreading around the world[1]. Tennis is an Olympic
 sport and is played at all levels of society at all
 ages. The sport can be played by anyone who can
 hold a racket, including people in wheelchairs.
         Figure Skating
Figure skating is an Olympic sport in which individuals,
 pairs, or groups perform spins, jumps, footwork and
 other intricate and challenging moves on ice. Figure
 skaters compete at various levels from beginner up to
 the Olympic level (senior), and at local, national, and
 international competitions. The International Skating
 Union (ISU) regulates international figure skating
 judging and competitions. Figure skating is an official
 event in the Winter Olympic Games. In languages
 other than English, figure skating is usually referred
 to by a name that translates as "artistic skating".

    Artistic Gymnastics
Artistic gymnastics is a discipline of gymnastics which is a
  popular spectator sport at the Summer Olympic Games, and in
  numerous other competitive environments. The related
  discipline of generaldog gymnastics is geared more towards
  participation for fun and fitness, rather than competition, and
  attracts a respectable number of participants including retired
Competitive gymnasts perform short routines (ranging from
  approximately 30 to 90 seconds) on different apparatus, with
  less time for vaulting (see lists below). They are governed by the
  Federation Internationale de Gymnastique, or FIG. The FIG
  designs the Code of Points and regulates all aspects of
  international elite competition. Within individual countries,
  gymnastics is regulated by national federations, such as BAGA
  in Great Britain and USA Gymnastics in the United States.
