What sports do you play and how good are you at them? (cycling isn’t a sport)

Rank the sports you have played seriously skillwise:

  1. Tennis - played at county level until I was about 16 but never really enjoyed it which is a shame.
  2. Football.
  3. Basketball. Its the sport I enjoy playing the most, but tbh I’m only really good at getting in the way and for some reason, 3 point shooting, despite not playing a position that requires it. Wish I was better :frowning:

Have played softball competitively, but its boring and shit. Also did a bit of table tennis, but its not really a sport is it?


#2

Cycling - used to be very good. Now fat and not very good.
Football - average at best, played in the top league of the 5s and 7s, but could never commit to Saturday/Sunday
Cricket - decent bowler, but shite at batting.

Everything else never really played competitively, just parked around.


#3

wanna try handball. Anyone played handball?


#4

I don’t play any, should probably change that but I detest the competitive side of myself


#5
  1. football - player at a decent level until I was 18 (home town’s youth team/reserves), didn’t play much at uni and since then have only played for shite Sunday league teams. My best position is centre midfield but I mostly play centre back these days as no one else is any good and I’m not as fit as I’d like to be for midfield.

  2. badminton - used to play 2x a week and was pretty good but haven’t played for years


#6

don’t like playing football in the UK that much - far too much emphasis on box to box bravery, which is a problem for a lazy center mid like me.


#7

I love teaching handball in PE, it’s well fun. Would definitely love to play it properly but get the feeling you have to be a 7 foot tall beast to play


#8

Should become a center back like me and gonad then


#9

Yeah, I used to play with my best mate in cm who is legitimately really good - like gets paid to play still, and I used to sit in the middle of the pitch and give him the ball basically. Made us both look good


#10

nah, far too skillful for that.


#11

Team games make me detest other people’s sense of competition


#12

Best position man.


#13

Did swimming until I was 16 but I never liked the club, and when I was taken to a gala I’d be on the sidelines because I was shit. I was just shit at it tbh


#14

Well that’s what puts me off playing football really. 99% of the time you’re not playing for anything but you inevitably get 2 or 3 rotters on the team that treat the game as though it’s the World Cup final (these people are also invariably the worst players on the pitch)


#15

None


#16

No I’m definitely also the worst player on the pitch


#17

My peak is over I think. Was at fault for 2 goals at the weekend, gave away about 4 free kicks and elbowed someone in the face accidentally.

Had an absolute shocker


#18

Despite having no natural aptitude or interest in sports I have tried a lot of sports in my time


#19

I was good enough to be the worst person in our school teams at:

Football (played right back, sometimes centreback, also turned out for a sunday league side)
Rugby (started off as fullback and ended up at blindside flanker)
Basketball (shortest person on the team, used to play point guard, was still a good foot shorter than anyone else on the court)
Tennis (was so-so. Very vulnerable second serve)
Cricket (slow swing bowler who could hit the same six inch square every ball, but had no real pace to take wickets. Couldn’t bat at all)

I also did triple jump and ran 400/800m for the school, but I think that was more because I was willing to be driven down to Welwyn Garden City in a battered old bus that made you feel sick every week.

The only sport I was actually any good at was swimming, where I competed at county level in breaststroke. I used to do freestyle relays and stuff, but I was too short to be any good at that one really.

And then I tore the ligaments in my ankle just before taking my A-levels and it was six years before I did any sport again. I started playing five-a-side and DiS football when I came down to London. The five-a-side team wound up and so I took up hockey, having never played it before.

I’m not very good at hockey (like, London league 6 standard, which is the eighth or ninth tier), but I do get to play against ex-internationals and stuff which is great, and I still feel that I’m getting better every week, which is good.

oh wait, you’re one of the hyper competitive rotters? :open_mouth:
