AnswerSchool were not yet created only private tutors for the wealthy. AnswerOne of the really cool things about the Middle Ages is that they were not the way most people think they were. Do a little research and discover a different world!

There were schools in the Middle Ages. The Byzantine Empire had primary schools at the village level, for both boys and girls, from 425 AD until 1453. The Visigoths opened schools in the 6th century, and so did Anglo Saxons. Even the Vikings ran schools, and believe it or not, a couple of the schools they ran are still operating today.

I have seen records of schools, but not of sports in schools. Nevertheless, since medieval people did play sports, it is hard to imagine that people in schools did not. The popular sports of the time included all sorts of races, medieval football, lawn billiards, battledore and shuttlecock (a game reminiscent of Badminton), Bowling, and others.
