Individual sports would be things such as surfing, skateboarding, and golf. Tennis and badminton are two examples of dual sports.
For me individual sports were invented to have some fun for ourselves and dual sports were invented to create fun for the society.
Individual and Dual Sports important because by playing it, you have to enhance yourself of what field of games you can carry on. And in individual sports as a player you have a chance to show your ability as you can.
Individual sports allow athletes to focus on themselves and their own performance. Dual sports takes the focus off the individual and places it on the team.
Some individual and dual sports are: table tennis cycling skating shooting tennis football snooker.
Individual sports are played without a team or a partner where as dual sports my be played with two or more individuals. An example of an individual sport is Golf or Singles Tennis. Both sports can, however be played on a team. Most Universities have a Golf or Tennis club (which makes them dual sports as well).
