Sports: Drawing of ballgame match

Sports have been a common practice amongst humans for thousand of years. The oldest form of sports were probabily what we now call martial arts, although this could be questioned because the objective of these early practices were not competition itself but to prepare for real hand to hand combat situations.

The first well documented team competitive sport is Polo. It was first played in India mostly by emperors and their courtiers and documents about it date back to 3000 BC.
