I've never really got into any sport in particular because PE was terrible at my school. Now I'm heading to uni and regretting not taking up any sports at school.

What sport would be a good one for a beginner like myself?

Cycling maybe. Most university's have societies. Cycling is low impact training and by that I mean its not too strenuous on the body. An hour of cycling has a lower impact then say an hour of running.

Badminton! It's like tennis but less impact, you don't need to be strong. I feel the same as you about sports, and I really don't like team games because I feel I'm the worst in the team, always picked last, and like I am being sneered at. I prefer a pair game like badminton or tennis.
Table tennis? If it counts as a sport.
Also horse riding could be fun!

These aren't sports but I'm thinking of going to water aerobics and salsa dance classes!

I was actually thinking badminton myself - it was the only sport at school I didn't hate I'll probably do that then!

Good luck with your sporting/fitness endeavours, too

Interesting thought. I used to do cycling at school and it was pretty alright (I came close to fainting on several occasions, but that was mostly my fault for being out of shape and dehydrated).

I actually started doing running recently (by myself, mind) and I think it's great. It was the running which made me realise I actually don't hate being active, it was just PE at school I didn't like.

Thanks for your ideas

When we did lacrosse at school it was BRUTAL. Maybe it was because no one in my class was very good... but, a day doing lacrosse which didn't involve someone being hit in the head with one of the sticks was... I mean.... I wish I could have seen the day!
