    Does anyone know of a list of the different types of sports that exist in Star Wars, and what they are the equivalent of? Wookieepedia has none as far as I know (I've checked), and I was just wondering if there existed a list somewhere where it says, for example, the SW equivalent of baseball is x.

    There's Limmie, aka bolo ball, which is basically a mixture of soccer and football. The Mandalorians even call it "the beautiful game." There's null-gee polo–which I assume is just as it sounds. There's water hockey, and even thumb wrestling!

    See? This is why we need a list with two columns, one for the SW name, and the other for it's Earthly equivalent, if any! lol It would make things so much easier!

    Hold on, here...I found one for basketball. It's called Grav-ball and it looks close enough anyways.

    Not sure what it is, but Scramball was mentioned in Revenge of the Sith.

    In one of the Han Solo trilogy books he mentions a fight sport. I seem to have lost the book in this pile of books I call an apartment. It's near the beginning while he is making repairs and some dude he is talking with is mentioned as a former fight sport champ. I think it might be Han Solo and the Corporate Sector.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned smashball yet. As for Earth equivalents, I doubt there are direct equivalents for most SW sports. I think if ever there was a story where the SW characters were playing baseball they would just call it baseball.
