What are you favorite Sports as a participator or spectator ? The above list 

is based on popularity as Global Participatory Sports ! Other lists may vary 

but it gives an indication. Athletics & Swimming / Diving & sailing & Marshall

Arts have not been included ! The list is mainly TEAM SPORTS most of which

are important in Schools to inculcate a TEAM SPIRIT. Inter School Competition

is still important in the UK ! The main Sport Brian & I participate in is TENNIS

Brian still plays FOOTBALL (Goal Keeper) and CRICKET (Wicket Keeper) at

College. I enjoy Swimming & Diving because HYDROTHERAPY is part of my

JOB and I encourage my CLIENTS to swim regularly to maintain and improve

their mobility. Brian &  I both have Tennis Coaching Certificates. Brian*s Church

has installed some outdoor Hardcourt Tennis Courts and an indoor badminton

Court which can also accommodate Table Tennis tables !  BRIAN believes that 

A Church Youth Club should encourage all aspects of Sport !  ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡

      Of those you have mentioned I have played table tennis (county level), cricket, tennis ( I was the Kent Youth Club champion back in the sixties,) hockey (played for the school), badminton.
      Of those that you have not mentioned the one I enjoy watching most is Rugby (both codes), to demonstrate how mad I am about Rugby there were 48 matches in the last Rugby Union World Cup - I watched 47 of them, I missed the first French match for some reason.
