    You could think about the mechanical/geometrical aspects, e.g. what is the best angle at which to kick a football into the goal, to have the greatest chance of the goal not being saved by the goalkeeper? or what trajectory will a tennis ball take depending on the speed and angle at which it was hit?
    Alternatively think about the statistical aspects, e.g. what is the fairest way to devise a performance-based ranking system for players? How do your results compare to the ranking systems currently used by the national and international governing bodies of different sports?
