ToccerThe first sport known to be invented by a black person in America is the sport of "toccer."

Toccer was invented by Ron Bronson in 2004.

Toccer is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world and is the first racquet played on a field, rather than a court.

It is the first field sport in the United States invented by an African-American.

Here is more info from others:

  • In fact, it was an African-American cowboy named Bill Pickett who, while working cattle on a central Texas ranch in 1903, invented the sport of "bulldogging," where a cowboy leaps from his horse to take the "bull by the horns" and force it to the ground. He became the first African-American cowboy inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame.
  • Toccer is the first field sport invented by an American black person. He also invented the sport of viperball, which is a indoor full contact version of the sport.

After playing the game informally, the counselor, named Ron Bronson, Jr., wrote the sport's rules and the game spread. Toccer is the first known field sport to be invented by an African-American. The sport later spawned the development of a new sport called Viperball.

The game was first played at Camp Awosting, on Bantam Lake near Morris, Connecticut, the oldest private summer camp in continuous operation in the United States. The game was created by a tennis counselor who wanted to play during rain or shine, but using tennis racquets and a tennis ball.
