View Full Version : What about sports?

January 21st, 2013, 1:42 AM
I'm making this thread 'cause I'm not that "sporty". Anyway, what sports are you good at? I'm only good at snowboarding and chess.

January 21st, 2013, 1:48 AM
Sport and Physical Education isn't something I'm known to succeed in, but I can say I'm actually quite good at Chess and Raquet Sports. (Tennis, Squash, Badminton etc).

January 21st, 2013, 2:31 AM
Hm, I'm pretty decent at badminton and volleyball, but I'm currently practicing basketball.

January 21st, 2013, 4:43 PM
I'm sort of good at basketball and badminton, as well as tae kwon do.

January 21st, 2013, 4:58 PM
I'm good at skateboarding, Parkour, free running, american football and different forms of martial arts.

I'm terrible at athletic sports. I get exhausted easily, especially after running around in Florida's hot weather. I don't want the ball thrown or passed to me at all. One time, someone kicked a ball right into my face in the middle of a game. That was before I had glasses (so I also would have likely broken my glasses, thanks!), but yeah, it still hurt. -_-; Count me out of jump rope too - I'm a klutz. Oh and I'm a no-go for swimming - I'm scared of going underwater.

I'm pretty good at foosball. ):

I was good at snowboarding in middle school. Now I'm good aaaat...
...Volleyball, I guess. It's the only sport that I'm somewhat competent at.

January 21st, 2013, 7:41 PM
I don't call myself a pretty athletic person, but I am pretty good at some sports. I'm a swimmer, a softball player, and a badminton player. The first two sports I mentioned, I've been in a team before, while for badminton, I haven't played games since freshman year of high school, which is really sad because I really liked Badminton. :(

I'm in a strange position where I'm actually quite good at sports, but horribly unathletic. I have natural talent at things like baseball (I made my city's all-star team in my very first year of playing, along with kids who'd already been playing 5 or so years), hockey and golf, but I was always the slowest person in my class/team, and never liked too much physical activity.

It didn't help that I'm a bigger guy, so I'd always get picked near the end for any team sports- but I always had fun surprising people at how good I actually was.

January 21st, 2013, 10:34 PM
I was alright at American Football, especially for someone that changed positions every year and only had limited knowledge of it.

I'm decent at basketball but haven't really tried any other sport. I've always wanted to play Baseball and Rugby and see how good I am but there's no place around here to do that.

January 22nd, 2013, 12:35 AM
The only three I'm actually good at are Basketball, soccer and Judo.
I have to say, that I'm so bad at the rest of the sports, I've tried.

January 22nd, 2013, 2:12 AM
Me and Sports don't mix well, I am terrible at them most of them part from Karate which my ninja squirrel family in my sig do.

January 22nd, 2013, 4:23 AM
I am decent in most sports... Cos I have that enthusiastic play in my game/work-ethnic, despite not having that best stamina, I will try and run the whole match if I have to. In my opinion, I am good in Football (soccer), Badminton, and practically any ball games, they say I have good reflexes as well.

January 22nd, 2013, 4:38 AM
Hmm..I used to be a pretty good goalkeeper in football back in the day but haven't really played it so much.I play Basketball pretty often-ish these days and am decent enough.

January 22nd, 2013, 10:33 AM
I'm good at bowling. Right now, I bowl on Friday nights in a league and my current average is 219, which is high for the league of 32 teams. It's pretty competitive so I need to keep my game up to make sure I get the award!

January 22nd, 2013, 10:43 AM
I'm pretty good at baseball and chess. That's............. About it. :(

January 22nd, 2013, 11:33 AM
I box, and I consider myself at least good at it. I know the basics so there's that, though I really don't know what type of style suits me the most. (Probably out-boxing)

Other than that? I've got a pretty strong lower body, so I'm a good runner, and I played soccer ever since I was a kid but I'm OK at it. Dodgeball and swimming are also something I consider myself good at.

I also don't really do it because I live in Ireland, but I have a deep passion for Baseball. (Bought a mitt, a bat and two soft balls when I visited America. :) ) If I was able to, I'd probably and hopefully be good at it haha. I try to swing and pitch whenever I can.

Despite being a bit fit and exercising, I don't really play many sports. Boxing is the only one I regularly do, but even that I stopped doing for a while so I can work on my fitness.

January 22nd, 2013, 11:51 AM
I love tennis, and am really good at it if I do say so myself. Other than that, I'm not too athletic, although I like to follow various different sport teams.

January 22nd, 2013, 3:21 PM
I've never much cared about sports. I mean, I know how, for some- but being an asthmatic that can't run quickly means pretty much every sport is ruled out. ;D Though I'm usually fine to exercise unless I'm sick or it's cold out (or my asthma just decides to attack me).

January 22nd, 2013, 3:36 PM
In high school I was on the swim and tennis teams and did pretty well, especially tennis. I still play tennis a lot in the summer. Still swim, too, but not competitively.

January 22nd, 2013, 3:54 PM
I'm really good at Futsel because I play soccer everyday. I'm naturally better than most people at Hockey (in the school team) but I don't really play it much. Other then that: Unicycling, Golf, and Rope Skipping (yes it's a sport).

January 22nd, 2013, 7:04 PM
Swimming is what I love. I can say that I'm a natural in water and that water's my element. My friends once commented that I was like a fish during swimming classes in school a few years ago. xD My best and preferred stroke is the breaststroke, with freestyle and backstroke coming in second and third. I can't do the butterfly though.. I always fuel out less than halfway in the pool haha. Although I say that swimming is my best sport, I haven't participated in any competitions before..so yeah, I'm not what you call a 'professional' lols.

January 24th, 2013, 9:17 PM
I'm great at football (tag..) but really, that's all. I also like kicking soccer balls around, but honestly, otherwise, I suck at sports.

January 24th, 2013, 10:15 PM
I don't recall chess being a sport, but ooookkk.

I'm a pretty athletic guy, so, ...all of them. I played lacrosse in high school, so there's that. Running, football, soccer, hockey, basketball, tennis, etc.

January 25th, 2013, 7:03 AM
My best sport is 10 Pin Bowling, where I am considered to be a semi-pro, but haven't played for 4 years, so I don't know what I am like now. I also enjoy Archery, Badminton, Soccer, Darts, Snooker, Pool and Trampolining.

January 25th, 2013, 8:59 AM
I play a wider variety of sports, and I'm good at most of them. Soccer (as goalie, hurdur), Volleyball, Football, Chess, Wrestling, among a few others.

I suck at Basketball though.

January 25th, 2013, 1:56 PM
I'm not very sporty, actually, but I do love ice skating and swimming :3 I did fencing for a little bit too and liked that!

I've actually never tried tennis and I've always kinda wanted to!

I hate sport. It's pointless and overrated and people need to get over it. I've seen the end of a football match on TV once and the supporters of the losing team leave the stadium in tears. Like Jesus Christ get a grip.

As for me, I always sucked at sports. I had Mum write me a note to get me out of PE every week I could, and one time I even wrapped my perfectly fine wrist in a bandage and told the teacher I sprained it the night before. PE was my last period that day so I had to spend the whole day with my hand in a bandage lol.

January 28th, 2013, 12:42 PM
I consider myself pretty sporty. I play a ton, but I'm probably only good in a handful. But I guess the only one I'm really great at is basketball, since I'm pretty tall. I was a starter in high school, and even began practicing with the team in college for a while. So...yea, basketball. I love the sport. Best in the world.

January 28th, 2013, 1:40 PM
I'm not good at any sports... I'm horrible at swimming, running, kicking, jumping etc. (the only reason I'm skinny is the fact I have a high metabolism) - and I'm bad (not horrible) at chess (I didn't know that was considered a sport!)

So yeah I enjoy sports, but I'm bad at them - hand me a piece of music, or a pencil and paper, and I'm happy :P

January 28th, 2013, 2:24 PM
I used to like basketball until I found it too be bland. I started to like soccer and stopped when everyone kept on missing the ball and kicking my foot. I started to like football because it's a contact sport and got a lot of action going on in it. I still love football till this day.

Other 'sports' I excel at is Parkour, Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai and Kickboxing.

January 28th, 2013, 3:43 PM
I've never been into sports but I'm good at table-tennis if you want to consider that, and I like swimming and cycling but that's it. I don't really do any of this in an "athletic" way so it doesn't really count but whatever.

The only sport I really do is karate. I do cycle as well but not in a sport like manner, just casually. But there's a lot of sports I can do like basketball, cricket, soccer and swimming.

I used to play soccer, and was quite good at it. Unfortunately, I haven't played it like that since middle school and might have lost a bit of my skills I had back then. But from what I can remember, I wasn't bad at it.

I used to play baseball too. I remember being okay with it. I wasn't quite as good as I was with soccer, but I generally didn't have too many problems and could hit some home runs. Unfortunately, I haven't played that since middle school either, and I might have lost some of the skills I had.

I was okay with basketball when I wasn't feeling anxiety for performing in front of others.

I was great at volleyball when I actually felt like playing it in gym class, so I was good with that.

The last time I really played football, I didn't have the best hand-eye coordination, so I didn't do very good with that, but I think that that's improved over the years dramatically, and I'm convinced that if I tried to play it again that I wouldn't be too bad.

I think with some practice, I'd be good at tennis. We used to play that every now and then in high school and I reaaaally enjoyed it for some reason. I didn't know how to play it or how to hit the tennis ball, but I know that if I was taught, I would do well.

That's really all the sports that I have any notable experience playing. The problem I had with gym class, and even now, is that I tend to avoid showcasing myself in athletic abilities. I'm not sure why. I think there's a psychological problem I have or a memory I'm probably repressing of an embarrassing moment from my childhood that I'd rather not relive, but it's not something I consciously do.

While we're on the topic of sports, I'd reaallyyyy like to try some extreme sports!!

I don't really play many sports, unless biking counts, freaking love that xD

February 1st, 2013, 11:43 PM
I used to do plenty of sports back in like, Elementary School. I did Swimming, Basketball, Soccer, and Karate. Though the only one I was a even a little bit better than decent at was Swimming. Basketball and Soccer I liked but didn't excel at, and I quit Karate because I hated my sensei.

February 2nd, 2013, 12:02 PM
I'm a really avid badminton player and competed in a junior elite championship once (I got my ass kicked because the asian players were leagues ahead of me).

February 2nd, 2013, 12:25 PM
Volleyball has always been 'my' sport but lately I've found tennis to be incredibly fun, too.

I think I'd enjoy any volleying/passing/etc. sport.

Two sports I've always wished I practiced more were gymnastics and ice skating too, but those are so hard on the body compared to volleyball and tennis. Gymnastics is incredibly demanding with balance and the like and I have really weak ankles so haha at me trying to ice skate for long periods of time...

I'm not too sporty honestly but I'd say I'm really good at rock climbing. I love Rock Climbing except I haven't done much in a while so I'm not sure if my skills are still up to scratch <3;, but I consider myself good at it still, I can easily climb to the top of most walls and its a really enjoyable sport. I really love it. <3

Other than that, I'd say I'm also pretty good at basketball! I used to do it a lot when I was a little kid, just go up to the school grounds on the weekend and play with their basketball hoops with my Mum and my sister, that must of been when I was 4 or 5. I still do that actually :3! I don't play on a team or anything, but I'd still say I'm good at it! :3.

Annnd that's about it really :(, I'm alright at swimming, not bad but not too good either so somewhere in the middle.

February 3rd, 2013, 1:25 AM
I'm not really that good at sports to be honest, it took me 4 years to learn how to swim well in deep water cos back in my school days I had a massive fear of deep water, which basically meant no going out in the ocean for me. And a fear of heights basically meant extreme sports for me are a complete no-no.

Also, I'm not that good at most ball games or sports that involve throwing things, but I tend to be very fast at walking! So much that I'm a power-walker!

February 3rd, 2013, 5:29 PM
I wish I was more competent when it came to sports. I tend to say "I'm useless" when it comes to some sports. I think it's because I never really do try and it's saddening.
I used to be captain of a soccer team until I was 10 and then I stopped. I was happy and I enjoyed it. I only watch soccer now though, but I'm pretty sure I'll rejoin a soccer club in the future.
I swim now and again and I think I'm alright.
I'm good at sprinting but you'll rarely see me doing it.
I used to BMX with some lads at the park until I was 15. Then my bike got robbed by someone. It's alright though, I've found love in my scooter that I've been using since lol.
There are loads of sports I want to try tbh.
I guess I am a sporty/athletic person but I neglect my sportyness very often.
