    So how many of you enjoyed or played sports while in Education? Did anyone represent or play for a team?

    I loved it, didn't take PE at GCSE though, but glad the few hours a week are on the curriculum regardless! I played football and basketball. Loved them both, still play football now for a team but not basketball as I'm not tall enough!!

    I played at some point for the school football and rugby teams, two different club rugby teams, a table tennis team, a university table tennis team and very briefly for an American football team.

    Now I'm just fat and lazy.

    I played for the second cricket team in primary school and also did athletics. I hated PE in secondary. We always did cross country in the rain and cold.

    I'm now happy to run in the rain...

    Didn't that at school, maybe later on University. On condition that they have martial arts as sports.

    At a university? wow, that is really a lot you doing. Could it be that you are even studying sports?

    There is nothing like being squashed face first into a waterlogged rugby pitch as 20 lads belly flop on top of you.

    Or play that wonderful variation of football where the aim is to hit as many opposition players as possible in the nuts.

    Hated sports at school, embraced them afterwards.

    I did sofa riding and channel surfing if that counts. I think I also did a bit of competitive eating on the side, though never entered a tournament...
