What sports do you play?
#1
I myself play quite a few sports, here they are:
Horse riding: Been doing it for 5 years, I absoloutly love, i'd also love to do Roman cavalry reenactment someday.

Golf: Just started playing again after not playing for about 6 months.

Snooker: been playing for a few months now, really enjoying it.

Cricket: been playing for nearly a year now, play for my local team.

Out of all of them i'd say the Riding is probably my favourite, and definately the one i'm best at, I also do it the most, atleast once a week, but over the past couple of weeks i've been riding about once every other day (because of the holidays).

I play a couple of sports:

My main sport, if you will, is martial arts, in particular Wado karate. Practical and fun at the same time.

Being a Canadian, hockey is a must Wink Street, pick up, or (most commonly) shinny.

Also play baseball and pool in lesser amounts.

I would like to learn how to ride a horse and golf. As a future accountant, the latter will prove rather....necessary :lol:

Currently, I play racquetball (great sport, btw), and golf, which I've been playing since I was like 12. I used to play football (the men's, er . . . I mean American kind) :wink: I do lots of other stuff that could be considered sports, but those are the 'ballgame' types.

I'd love to do horse riding, but I don't have land to keep any on, and my grandpa doesn't keep them any more.

Not have a local riding school? I don't have my own horse either, but i'd love one.

"As in Parkour, or free running? " Now that in full armour would be VERY impressive!!

As for me , its rugby all autumn, winter, and spring- though I now coach and watch more than play!

"i'm about 5 "3 - 5 "4 and 6 stone 5." But great for fast cavalry!

I'm too skinny to play rugby" I've increasingly got the opposite problem!!

The first time i will make a fix course to drill the moves, later free running.

In my days as paratrooper i´ve enjoyed the obstacle course in full "armour" (with parachute, emergency parachute, biwak gear, assault rifle and 250 rounds ammo) - and is was a "painfull fun"! 8)

In my urnfield culture kit it would be easy! :wink:
