Asked in Water Polo
Is water polo an amateur sport or professional?
Water polo is an all round competitive sport, but it can also be fun. It all depends on the level of competition you would want, the higher the level the more physically fit you have to be and you'll be expected to preform at that level. Being a polo player myself I feel that water polo is more of a professional sport because the only people that play it their whole lives are the ones who love the sport. People who give up polo later in their lives were probably just looking for some fun. Plus take the Olympics for example; olympic polo consists of high performance athletes on a Professional level of competition. ---- Both. Europe has professional leagues. It is played a a amateur level around the world.
Asked in Sports, Bats, FIFA World Cup
How many sports teams are around the world?
Depends on if they are professional or amateur. There are over 800 professional sports teams that are measured by www.qlobal.com. There are probably just as many or more professional teams out there that arent measured. There must be hundreds of millions of amateur teams out there. Just as an example there are approx 200 million soccer players registered in the world. A minimum of 11 players to a team means there are approx 18 million teams -just for soccer! Add to that cricket, basketball etc etc and the number would be very very big!

Asked in Gaelic Sports
Should GAA be professional?
No, for lots of reasons. Players play for the love of the sport and of their friends and community. That is a far greater driving force to play than for money. Professionalism would ruin the whole heart and spirit of the game. The GAA is the largest amateur sporting organisation in the world, so it would not be possible to pay everyone should it become professional. Most people do not want it to be professional. Many players are professional in that they already have jobs and careers and very few would want to play sport professionally. For these and other reasons, the GAA should stay amateur.
