1) I am female, 16 years old and live in England
2)Yes, i play Badminton and occasionally tennis
3) Was asked to play for the school team
4) my mixed doubles partner/friends
5)Once a week
6)Because i really enjoy it and keeps you fit at the same time
7)No, all our facilites at school are free
8)Yes definatley!!
9)Yes, we have all the sky sports channels and i sometimes like to watch 'Good morning sports fans (at the weekend) and i also watch match of the day. and of course whenever tennis is on.
10)There is quite a lot of sports facilities across the country as far as i know. I also think that most children do some kind of sport inside or outside of school.
11) Sport brings me loads of happiness and its like an escape route from any worries you may have. especially when you are playing in a competition the adrenaline rush and atmosphere is just awesome!

Hope that this was some kind of help!

1) I'm female, 15 years old and live in London
2)I play tennis, badminton, netball, football, laccrosse, and I swim (if that counts?)
3)Tennis - my brother plays quite seriously, as does my dad - so that got me into it. Swimming - i went to swimming lessons when i was younger to learn. Badminton and football - friends. And the others are just through school.
4) Friends mainly.
5) Not very often (2/3 times a month), except swimming which i usually do about 4 times a week.
6)For fun, and fitness
7) No not really, most of the facilities i use are free, or really cheap.
8) Siblings - not really, my brother usually plays more sport than me.
9) Quite a lot yes, only because i now have Sky. I do watch quite a bit.
10)Quite a lot of yong people do play - but i think it is quite hard for people to find places to play sports locally and cheaply.
11)Sport brings me... ummm.... again, fun - and exercise. As well as happiness when i acheive something in sports Smile

Hope that helps! hug

Q1: Female, 15, London. 

Q2: Tennis, football, hockey, table tennis, badminton, rounders, netball, swimming, (skiing - outside the UK) golf ( very rarely ).

Q3: Tennis - started at an early age, so i guess i have always played, on school team. Football - about 5 years now, on school team. Hockey - (not on ice) through school - on school team. Table tennis - unfortunatly not very often but do play a bit. Badminton - not competitive, just leisure. Rounders - through school for about 5 years, on school team. Netball - through school, a "veteran" of the school team.  Whistle < It's a really boring sport. Swimming - competitive training until i was 11, still keep it up in my spare time. Skiing - pretty often in the winter, although mostly cross country. 

Q4: In school - friends and other schools. Outside school - friends, parents, relatives. Random people at the tennis club. Wink

Q5: Hmm hard one. Really depends on time of year.

Q6:  wub ...... i hope that makes sense. Smile

Q7: Yea, pay for tennis courts/membership. Equipment is expensive (hockey and football especially!)

Q8: No siblings and no children.

Q9: Yes, except for tennis. UK tennis coverage is shite - you might not want to use that word in your essay though.

Q10: I think the sport situation in the UK has become much better than it used to be. Most schools encourage physical education and games which is fantastic. Many young people play and now that there has been more focus on obesity - i think the issue is becoming more important to many schools and generally in social life. I would say there are more people playing sport from about the ages of 17 - 25. That's judging from my tennis club.

Q11: Fun, fun and more fun!  w00t It's great - good way to socialise and enjoy your free time. Obviously it's for exercise but there's a lot behind that. Encourages team work and a sense of friendship - 6 years on various school sports team has been great.  yay Brings out a competitve touch which i definatly have. Wink




Hope it helps. hug

Aww rugby, I did that when I was in high school. A guy hit my ankle (that was mixed teams), ouch! I did ping pong, volleyball and another thing (it's a sport when you are like in a forest and you have a map and you have to find some things) for my baccalauréat. I played badminton in secondary school. I did running, swimming, basketball and handball also. That was fun. But not as a regular sport  Crying or Very sad

Orienteering? That's quite popular here too.
Forgot to mention I also played a lot of table tennis at school, used to run it at school, but stopped playing since finished school cos nowhere to play.
