I think it would be kind of cool to see what types of sports everyone on this site plays.

I have been swimming since I was 2 years old and then I started competitively swimming when I was 7. I also started playing water polo my senior year of high school. I'm still swimming and playing polo at college right now.

Hbu guys?

Currently, I don't play any sports, but I am still pretty good at table tennis. I'm not able to be very active anymore due to my sun allergy and my busy schedule.

Back when I was 18...hmm.

Martial arts. I trained at least twice a week for nearly 8 years, walked 2 hours to and from school every day, and did other sports to build my endurance. I competed in a few nationwide tournaments and managed to get into the finals twice. My weapons of choice were single-edged knives and swords (2-handed grip for swords), although I also am decent with dual tonfas and dual katars (I guess those count as knives) and trained to be able to use dual nunchaku. Nothing was quite as fun as tameshigiri for passing the time.

Table tennis. I taught myself by playing at the afterschool ping pong club in 7th grade. I was pretty good by the time I got to college, as I frequently played in church tourneys with a bunch of the crazy Asian uncles and dads who were there. I can use pretty much any major grip style and I can use two at once, one with each hand. I'm currently trying to get better with the fairly new pistol grip style. Penhold is my strongest, although I started off with the standard shakehand.

Basketball. I was pretty good at 3-pointers as well as doing defensive plays, but I was worthless at dribbling and shot better with one hand. I could only shoot and steal, pretty much, and I had to be around the 3 point line to be at my best. I was not exactly a well-rounded player but I made up for it with my speed back then. Now, I probably can't do anything.

Archery. I never was formally taught but I picked it up after years of shooting with my friend. I began using a longbow and transitioned into using a compound bow. I'm currently looking for a new compound bow so I can get back into it.

Running. I used to be able to do a 5:20 mile. My strength was sprinting, though, not distance running. I got really slow and tired after one mile.

Tennis. Really fun sport but I did it pretty casually. It was only for recreational purposes. I always have a tennis racket in my trunk in case anyone wants to play. I'm not particularly good at tennis compared to table tennis, but I can hold my own against most players.

Handball/Wallball. Not an official sport but it was a popular elementary school game. You basically strike a kickball with your hand. It must bounce on the ground once before hitting the wall. The ball's first bounce after it hits the wall must not land outside the boundary line of the handball court. Since I played this game for over 10 years, I got really good at it. I could beat 3-player teams by myself and, even now, hitting that ball has become pretty much reflexive. I'm not as fast or precise as I used to be but I'm still a pretty good handball/wallball player. It's a really effective exercise, too.

Powerlifting in highschool... but that was just for recreation.

Running . . . also just for recreation and health. I was out of it for a number of years and I'm working on getting back to where I was about 20 years ago, 5K in about 25 or 30 minutes.

Hunting and fishing but that might not be quite the type of sports you are thinking of...

don't play any organized sports.

I wish I could play more pick up basketball. I don't have friends, though. I can only play with my cousin from time to time.

I don't play anything organized either. I do walk and run on and off the treadmill and swim during the summer. Nothing by way of competitiveness, nor care for such things save for watching them.

I did competitive Trampoline for 9 years but sadly had to stop due to a back injury.

Now I mostly Rock Climb and wake board.

I have also been wanting to start up martial arts but my busy schedule keeps me from getting involved in any classes right now.

I play lots of organized and recreational sports. Sometimes I think I do too much, but oh well, at least it's fun.

Soccer- I've been playing soccer for about as long as I can remember, and am currently in a very advanced league for my region. When I was really young I used to play forward, (didn't we all?) but for the past 5 years or so I've been a defender and plan on sticking with that position. I'm an above average sprinter and have very good stamina, so it's a good sport for me.

Baseball- Baseball gets really boring at my age, but I'm alright at it. The schedule is pretty condensed and it conflicts with my other sports, so I just do a rec league. One year I went to provincials on a rep team though, we did pretty well.

Ball Hockey- Eh, here in Canada you have to at least play hockey once or you're missing out. I'd play ice hockey but I can't skate so yeah.

Tennis- If tennis was a more popular sport in Canada, I'd for sure be playing it in a organized league, but now I just casually play once in a while with friends.

Track and Field- I've been involved with track for a long time, with my specialties being long jump and sprinting-long running events.

Cross Country- There's usually a program at my school, so I try to sign up every year if I can. It really helps with stamina, as you basically run 2-3 kilometers every other day for practice.

This means I spend almost all of my time away from sports and school watching anime. I need it more than I need water.

Swimming (I no longer compete, but did for years and years), hockey and ringette. I've also, over the years, done track and field, ballet (amongst a number of other dance types), gymnastics and tae kwon do. And I don't know if people consider this a sport or not, but I do a lot of rock climbing and rappelling (or abseiling as some call it).
