List of Team Sports

Out of the hundreds of different sports played around the world, here is a list of those that are solely for teams. If there are more than two players on each side, then the sport should be listed here. However, a few sports come to mind that have more than one in a team but I struggle to justify including them as team sports. For example, there are 'teams' in curling, synchronized swimming, rowing eights, four-man bobsled, sprint relay races.

These categories are based on a list found on Wikipedia, which seems to summarize the sports quite nicely. There are links to more information about the sports when available. The name is brackets indicates variations of the sport.
