Fancy a spot of tennis, basketball or football? Boring! Why play a conventional sport that actually makes some kind of sense when you could be spending your time tumbling down hills or climbing mountains to do your ironing. Without further ado, here are the 6 most ridiculous sports we can’t believe actually exist.

Believe it or not, a tournament takes place every year in Las Vegas where the winner walks away with fifty thousands dollars just for shaping his hand like a rock, paper or scissor.
