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.
