    Used to do football, hockey and netball - but i've had to give them up due to injury. Although, I am trying to find a sport that's high energy and wrist friendly :erm:

    I've tried alot of sports in my time, but currently it's MMA. This I think, as Michelle Waterson says 'Martial arts isn't just a sport, it's a way of life' but after one lesson I can definitely tell you it's extremely exciting and a definate workout- I'm hoping it'll also increase confidence

    Over to you guys.

    It's mainly climbing for me, but i kayak as well. The reason why is because it's a way of life, and it keeps me healthy.

    For me it's mainly tennis that I play a lot, but also I love basketball, badminton and table tennis.

    I'm not bad at sprints either but I've never liked it that much... too much effort

    chess, I'm not even very good at it but it's the only sport, that I can think of, where no actual physicial exertion is required
    I'm not sure if your post is slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I used to be part of a chessclub, for years, and think it's one of the most amazing ways of spending time, other than drinking/ getting laid (though I have been known to mix chess with drinking... but never getting laid " Knight to C3!!!" ). Haven't played properly in a good while now, think I'll have to crack out the board and get chessing it up - tomorrow, or the next day.

    Wow, variety. Any particular reason?
    Got pushed into them as a kid, and glad I was. I haven't owned a TV (nor watched a complete TV show) for... I'd say about 5/6 years. I'm also not a fan of playing computer games (I was brought up where it was the geeks who say in playing computer games, and I was busy down the racquet club, or wherever).

    Variety: I'll try any sport (OK, most), and those are the ones which I've been particularly keen on once giving them a go. Tennis and skiing/ snowboarding are my favourites without doubt; truly exceptional ways of spending ones time.

    Octopush. Haven't done it for ages but I'm determined to get back into it when I move to Oxford. I love it because its fun, I love playing around in water making it more appealing than just swimming and it provides an amazing workout.
