Apart from droid NFL-style football and board games are there any examples of sports similar to ours? I.e., snooker/pool, football/soccer, tennis, etc?
Starwars.com ran a two-part blog on this subject:

In the videogame Knights of the Old Republic, there is a combat arena on Taris. I don't know if you'd count that as a sport, but the audience seems to, and the real world considers Mixed Martial Arts a sport.
Also in Knights of the Old Republic, A card game, Pazaak, is very popular and can be played in many locations. I don't know if you'd count that as a sport, but we have the World Series of Poker, and the Star Wars universe seems to take Pazaak about as seriously.
