So big sports anime/manga fan here! I'd like to read some sports centered manga (or anime is also fine), so if you know of any, please suggestion some. There are some guidelines I'd like you to follow below!

Guidelines

Those highlighted in red are points that are extremely important to me! So please read them and be aware of them when recommending!

- NO MAINSTREAM (This is stuff like Free, Kuroko no Basuke, Haikyuu, Prince of Tennis etc)
- Unconventional sports preferred (Most sports manga feature soccer, basketball, baseball etc. I'm looking for something other than that, like ballroom dancing, ping pong, ice skating, golf, etc.)
- Unpopular preferred (Or rather, undiscovered. A hidden gem.)
- As little romance as possible! (I do not like romance-centric sports anime unless done well, like Cross Game.)
- None that focus on catering to a certain audience. (Like how Free got insanely popular for it's male fan service.)
- Good, fluid, dynamic art is preferred. (Ex. The art in: Tetsugaku Letra, Ballroom e Youkoso, Ice Revolution, Baby Steps, etc.)
- ABSOLUTELY NO SUPERPOWERS (I'm looking for something feasibly realistic, not like Prince of Tennis or Eyeshield 21.)

My manga list: http://myanimelist.net/mangalist/arashi-chan12
It doesn't get update quite as often but try not to recommend those already listed here.

Sorry for being so demanding! I will be so appreciative if you take the time to recommend! Thank you!

PS. I am also looking for some "regular school club" manga, like Again!!, Kono Oto Tomare, Soul Catcher(S) or the likes. Cultural clubs in this case, that focus on school life. If you have any recommendations, please feel free to do so for this as well!

I've already seen (most of) the anime, and I am planning to read it at a later date. Thanks for suggesting though!

There is one called Baggata Way its about a girls lacrosse team. I don't believe there is any super powers and the romance is just a little tease, but has nothing to do with the actually plot.

Its aight.

I personally loved One Outs (Baseball), Kokou no Hito (Rock Climbing), Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru (Karate), Teppu (MMA) and All-Rounder Meguru (MMA).
