    Orienteering, cross country skiing, biathlon are my main ones - all after joining the Army. Athletics officiating (Track and Starting) after leaving. Working up to an Ultra (Falkland Islands) in Apr 21. Trying to get myself away from the computer screen!
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    in my lifetime... cricket, squash, football (ish! I was always rubbish), gymwork, running, cycling, swimming, triathlon, hockey at school (and once played for UCWAberystwyth as I was the van driver and they were a man short! The netball team never needed me in such a vein, and I was under oath to not look in the rear view mirror in the transit van when the girls were changing !)

    Have coached cricket, running and tri skills. Hold coahcing awards in rugby and triathlon.

    Cricket. I was an OK club left arm spinner (I could bowl leg breaks too) and a middle order batsman. Retired 10 years now

    Football. played in many positions up to the age of 14. Picked up 3 red cards (all in one season).

    Darts. Once was nicked named Captain Zero for very embarrasing reasons. Was not too bad usually but lacked consistency.

    Chess. I play to a pretty high standard. I was once selected to play for Wales (over the board) but the game was called off. I also play by correspondence (post / email and via the web). Here I've represented Wales a lot.

    I play football, this is probably my 1st sport. Been playing it all my life. - Currently play in a Pub league.
    Badminton - Went along with my mate at Uni. Now I run my local Club. I'm not particularly good at it. Can do all the shots to a good standard, but consistency is an issue as is court movement (due to being a fat prop lol).
    I play golf a few times a year too. Again not great but can pull off the odd brilliant shot.

    Is it competitive and does it get your heart rate up?
