    Done deal - though you'll have to tell me how to play squash, I never really did it because the totally uncool goggles school makes us wear totally put me off.
    The benefits of glasses, I couldn't wear those :p:

    But our school destroyed 1 of the squash courts to make the girls changing room bigger :mad:

    As if they need somewhere to change :mad: :mad:

    This is a game I might win having played a few times before :zomg:

    Deal. Though you will thrash me. Oh I am comicly bad at sport (apart form hockey which I am ok at :p:) :rofl: like todays football I was captain (:rofl:) we lost 4-1 are improvemnet on last time we played them of 6-1 :p:

    As for gym stuff I think I will give it a go or at least try to :p:
    Though treadmill is sooo dull.
    Well, at least you're captain of a football team, so you can't be that bad. My football boots have been lying around gathering dust - no one really plays around where I live, except really dodgy blokes who go for dodgy slide tackles.

    Treadmill is actually easier than running normally. I opted for cross-country at school for 3 years, and it's way harder running outside than on a treadmill. And if you're wondering why I went for this dull sport (if you can call running a sport), it's because the alternative was rugby and I'm hardly built for rugby.

    Except I reckon they'll be fully occupied all the time.

    Actually, it's Oxford, so if the stereotypes are true, they'll probably be empty, though you won't be able to find a tennis partner :p:
    When I went to have a look around, four visions of beauty were just heading onto them when I walked past. So hopefully one of them will graduate this year and they'll need a fourth member. :ninja:

    And running is not boring - I find it wonderfully therapeutic to be running in the middle of a park with Alphabeat buoying me along. :awesome: I don't do it nearly as competitively as most sports though, racquet and team sports are what I rely on then.

    Look, I managed to beat people at it, and it's a sport - therefore it wasn't dull for me

    And you don't just knock balls through stables, you have to hit your opponents' balls too (and I appreciate how that came out)
    I was joking dude! People tell me rowing isn't a sport and is dull all the time. :yes: Feel free to do that.

    But we don't knock our opponent's balls with that, well, some might, but that's just speculation.

    Not a proper sport i am afraid like fishing

    Fishing is either:

    A) a profession/job/way of life
    B) an attempt to escape the wife for 8hrs a day

    :p:
    At least it isn't a woman's sport :eviltongue:
    But I agree that fishing isn't a sport, it's just torture (but if you're secretly into it then ofc we can go :yep:)

    You'll beat me at any rate - though I might be playing this with a friend next week, so I might be able to learn how to play before uni.

    And I think the girls change in the common room at our school... actually, I have no clue where they change, now you mention it.

    Ah the rugby term, thats when I decided to do swimming.

    I don't think you get how the captaincy on our team works. No. 1 it is one of the 6-9 that turns up. No. 2 is picked at random.
    The only purpose is for the coin toss :p:
    We had even lost the captain arm band :sad:

    You could say that about cricket and golf, but it doesn't stop them being sports. :p:

    But you're right - fishing is as much a sport as darts. :dry:

    Haven't played tennis for ages, but I used to play it really competitively - have different racquets and shoes for different courts, enter tournaments and had a proper ranking. And it used to be fun with the other kids trying to psych you out. :giggle:

    Then I moved onto squash, then badminton - and now I haven't really picked up a racquet for a while.


    It's all about the football currently. :cool:
