Sports were a major form of recreation for the Issei and Nisei in the camps. Baseball became the preferred sport for both, although basketball and football were also popular among the Nisei. Organized teams, often consisting of friends from prewar neighborhoods, played each other in highly competitive matches. Other sports, like ping-pong, judo, boxing, badminton, and sumo wrestling were also popular pastimes.
