Icons2 Badminton. There are two kinds of badminton, recreational and competitive. Competitive badminton has a special place in sports, attracting hundreds of thousands of professionals and amateurs. A 1.5-meter net, quick reactions, rackets to serve the shuttlecock, passion, drive, dexterity, and well-practiced volleys are the basic requirements. Registration
Icons1 Basketball. Basketball requires not just serious physical preparation, but also a high level of passion and, of course, artistry. Just try to put the ball through the hoop from the middle of the court, and an artist will emerge within you.The game was born in the U.S. at the end of the 19th century, and has become popular around the world among both men and women. The object is for two five-person teams to score points by putting the ball in their opponents’ basket. The winner is the team with the higher number of points at the end. The first baskets used in basketball, by the way, were ordinary wicker peach baskets.Vivid, entertaining and fast-paced, basketball has a special place at the first Russian Open Games. Registration
  Volleyball.  The number of volleyball players around the world – approximately 35 million – speaks for itself. The popularity of the sport beats all kinds of records. From the beaches of Goa to gyms in Alaska, rookies and professionals put their hearts into volleyball. The intensity of passes, the dazzling beauty of attacks, and the player with the unusual name of the “libero” all make volleyball an unforgettable show.The tallest volleyball player in the world is from Russia, at 217 centimetres. Among LGBT players, volleyball has long and deservedly been a favourite game. Registration
Skiing. Skiing is one of the most popular and accessible sports in Russia. It’s attractive not only through the techniques of moving the skis while on a run, but through the chance to contemplate the changing pictures of the winter landscape. An extended muscular effort in the clean air and in low temperatures promotes conditioning of the body, significantly increasing its resistance to different illnesses.
The history of skiing dates back to the third millennium BC. It is said that at that time the first skis were invented, and therefore skiing can boldly claim to be an ancient sport. The first competitions in skiing started to be held in 1867 in Norway, but they only received official recognition 90 years ago, when they became a full component of the Winter Olympics in 1924 in Chamonix, France. 
Three races will be held at the Games: individual races, a group start and a relay. Both novices and professionals may take part in the competitions, in distances from 2 to 10 kilometers. Registration 

  Table Tennis. If all that you know about table tennis comes down to small paddles, a hard, light ball made of plastic, a 6-inch net and two players, then we can say that you know nothing about table tennis!218 countries around the world play table tennis at various levels. The acknowledged leader in the game is China. The main object of the players is to serve and hit back the ball correctly. Additionally, the serve has to be made as soon as the ball leaves the server’s hand.Table tennis is a game for attentive and dexterous players. Come join the competition at the first Russian Open Games in Moscow! Registration
 Icons6 Swimming. Swimming is always one of the most popular sports in the LGBT community. And how can this fact surprise anyone? More than five styles, more than eight distances, the beauty of the human body and natural power, the result depending only on the player’s strength and will for victory. These are what make swimming one of the top sports at the first Russian Open Games. Registration
  Tennis.  There are a lot of attractive sports, but significantly fewer aristocratic ones. Tennis is an example of a sport that brings together both of these origins. The speed and strength that athletes need are doubtlessly also important here, but the first mention of the game was made by the pen of the great William Shakespeare. The whole French royal court of the 16th and 17th centuries played tennis, and it was one of the best-loved games for all the Russian tsars.At the first Russian Open Games in 2014, the tennis competition has both singles and team categories. So if you want to take part in an aristocratic, beautiful and thrilling game, then get thee to the tennis! Registration
  Futsal. A relatively recent invention, futsal has quickly gained a large number of followers. Today, around 30 million people play it, and not just kids – but 30 million men and women of various ages, nationalities, religious persuasions and sexual orientations.Interestingly, a futsal ball has different physical characteristics: Particularly, the bounce of the ball is significantly less than of a ball used in “big” football. The main difference in futsal is the game’s different playing tactics, which are governed by the limited size of the pitch, the smaller number of players and their close contact. Nevertheless, in intensity and excitement, futsal does not yield to its older brother.Registration
