used to like formula 1, but not any more :|

cricket
tennis

horse racing is boring and fixed :shock:

Used to participate in orienteering for fun..... but not any more... :tdown:

1 - Football - Raiders fan since 1980, War meets Chess for the most tactical sport ever devised
2 - Football - Leeds United fan from 1970, maybe a bit earlier, maybe as early as 67
3 - Cricket - Hampshire fan since 62 - that's when I was taken to my first game aged 6 months
4 - Baseball - Indians fan since 1989, robbed of our first WS last season for donkeys years - Go Tribe
5 - Rugby Union - Wasps fan but not for a while, not since they moved
6 - Golf - Ryder Cup fan, a great team sport not played enough as a team sport
7 - Basketball - Not really watching but enjoy the fantasy aspect. No team
8 - Badminton - Because I used to be really good, and I like watching it at the olympics
9 - Rowing
10 - Cycling

Enjoy all these
Football
Rugby league ( Wakefield Trinity and Leeds)
Cricket (all formats Yorks and England only)
Tennis
Snooker
Formula 1
Rugby Union ( England and Lions only)
Boxing (especially Josh Warrington who's a massive Leeds United supporter)
Golf (enjoy playing and watching the Ryder cup and Solheim cup)
Cycling ( not watching but riding my bike)
Would love to take up bowls. My uncle used to play on the Scarborough greens when we used to go on holiday there one week a year. I always imagined I would take it up myself but I don't think my bad knee would allow me to now.

Knee is ok for cycling, walking etc, but not good for crouching down. They have a carpet bowls tournament here in the village, but I have no idea if there are greens in Ipswich. My aunt and uncle used to take me and my cousin to Scarborough for a week ( when I wasn't at Flamborough :-D ) and we stayed over a shop near the greens, so we would quite often walk through them to get on to the front. Lucky you having played there

1. Football (real)
2. Baseball
3. Basketball
4. Golf
5. Football (American)
6. Tennis
7. Track and Field
8. Skiing (alpine)
9. Hockey
10. Gymnastics

Played the first four when I was younger and ran track through high school (middle distances). Now a round of golf is the best I can do. I do, however, walk the 18 holes. Motorized carts are for chumps and American presidents.

Oops. that's redundant.
