Top 5 sports that starts with Q to achieve excellence

Quad Racing

This motorsport, also referred to as all-terrain vehicle racing, was invented in the US around 1970. This became a popular recreational and adventurous type of racing that can be done on different types of roads.

GNCC Racing and the Quad Cross Series are some of the top international competitions held for quad racing. I remember riding an ATV years ago. It is a very unique vehicle that is easy to handle, yet the speed can go really high! However, it was truly an exciting activity to try out!


Although this is a fictional sport, it was invented by the renowned author, J.K. Rowling, of the Harry Potter book series. This became a real-life sport in 2005, first played in a college in Vermont.

There are four positions in the game: chaser, keeper, beater, and seeker. The chaser is supposed to throw a quaffle—a deflated ball through a hoop—to score a win. The players also hold the broomsticks in between their legs while playing! This sport surely reminds me of the scene where Harry Porter plays the game of quidditch as a seeker for his team at Hogwarts!
